Ed O’Neill has never forgotten Meghan Markle.
During a Monday appearance on “Ellen,” O’Neill played a game of “Who’s This,” in which he had to identify celebrities in photographs, including the pregnant Duchess of Sussex.
“That’s Markle, right?” O’Neill said to host Ellen DeGeneres, before recalling how the now-royal grew up on the set of his classic sitcom “Married… with Children,” since her estranged father Thomas Markle worked on the show.
“Her father was a camera operator,” O’Neill, 72, said. “And she used to come on the set in her little Catholic school uniform. She was, like, 9.”
Meghan, 37, told Esquire in 2018 that Thomas worked as a lighting director and director of photography on the series, saying: “Every day after school for 10 years, I was on the set of ‘Married… with Children,’ which is a really funny and perverse place for a little girl in a Catholic school uniform to grow up. There were a lot of times my dad would say, ‘Meg, why don’t you go and help with the craft services room over there? This is just a little off-color for your 11-year-old eyes.’”
Meghan and Thomas’ relationship has been strained after he bowed out of his daughter’s wedding last May. Thomas was accused of staging paparazzi photos prior to the royal nuptials, though Meghan’s half-sister, Samantha Markle, later took the blame.
