It's a dream come true for anyone to get invited onto The Ellen Show, but to get invited out of interest by Meghan Markle sounds like the stuff of fairytales. Luckily, for Belgian dance duo Jeny Bonsenge and her star-student, nine-year-old dance prodigy Anae, it was a remarkable reality.
The pair appeared for an interview on the talk show last week, after a video of them dancing went viral on the internet, and has since reached over 16 million views. As they sat down with host Ellen Degeneres, they were told a pretty exciting secret.
"Do you know how I found the two of you?" Degeneres asked. "Meghan Markle sent me this video. She texted me and said, 'What do you think of this? How great is this girl?'"And, just like the rest of us, the duo responded with open mouths and faces of utter bewilderment.
Meghan and Degeneres have been longtime friends. Most recently, Degeneres was among the many celebrities that stepped in to defend the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on social media, following a wave of criticism aimed at the royal couple online.
