And according to Ellen DeGeneres, so was she. But she's surprisingly still on the movie's side!

As you know, the two lovebirds took their first big getaway together to Norway at the beginning of the new year — and now we're hearing they've just been "chilling and enjoying lazy days together" in London at the 32-year-old's Nottingham cottage at Kensington Palace ever since.
Today, the royal joined his brother Prince William and Kate Middleton at the The Institute of Contemporary Art to raise awareness for mental health through the charity Heads Together (pictured above) — but Meghan wasn't in sight, so it sounds like she's still keeping a pretty low profile during her time abroad.
A source told the outlet:
Well, this probably isn't the news the royal family wanted to hear…
Meghan Markle's half-brother, Thomas Markle, Jr., was arrested on Thursday after he allegedly held a gun to his girlfriend Darlene Blount's head during a heated argument.
According to court documents, Blount called the cops after locking herself in the bathroom during the altercation:
"Markle and Blount got into an argument. In his drunken state Markle grabbed a gun and pressed it to Blount's head in an attempt to get her to leave."
The 50-year-old was charged with menacing, pointing a firearm, and unlawful use of a weapon.
In the aftermath of the arrest, Markle's 24-year-old son Tyler gave a statement to The Sun on his father's behalf, saying:
Back to work again!
The trio were there to speak about their work with Heads Together, an organization that focuses on providing mental health help to sufferers.
Looking immaculate as always, the Duchess of Cambridge chose a floral Erdem sheath dress for the occasion, styling it with burgundy pumps and a red clutch.
The 35-year-old also gave a very rare speech on mental health, which you can watch (below)!
The sister-in-law and the girlfriend!
The happy event occurred on Tuesday, January 10, with Kate traveling from her Anmer Hall home in Norfolk to meet the Suits star at the Kensington Palace apartments where the Duchess and Prince William reside while in London.
Apparently, the meeting was very important to both parties.
A source said:
"Kate was really looking forward to meeting Meghan and she knew how important it was to Harry. Obviously Harry's mother, Princess Diana, died when he was very young so Kate really fulfills that older sister/maternal role. They are very close and he really values her opinion on girlfriends."
Although Prince George was at school and couldn't attend the meeting, 20-month-old Charlotte accompanied her mother on the very significant trip. TOO CUTE!
A source described the day, saying:
This is SO wonderful to see!!
Queen Elizabeth II had been dealing with a nasty cold over the Christmas holiday — a not-so-insignificant situation when you're 90 years old as she is — but it appears she is back in good spirits and good health now!
The royal matriarch, donning a bright blue outfit with a matching hat, set off to a morning church service on Sunday in Sandringham, Norfolk in the UK! Such a great sight to see after that 'heavy cold' brought her down and even contributed to a terrible Twitter hoax about her death!
The BBC shared footage of Queen Elizabeth, and her husband, Prince Philip, leaving their estate and making their way to church this morning (below):
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry continue to make strides in their relationship!
As you know, the Suits actress has met several members of the royal family… and now we're hearing the 32-year-old has already gotten approval from Meghan's father, Thomas Markle Sr.!
The 35-year-old beauty's older half-brother, Thomas Markle Jr., sat down for a lengthy interview with DailyMail.com where he dished on the starlet's upbringing and her new relationship with the famed Brit.
We can't imagine Meg or Harry are super thrilled about the 50-year-old's little tell-all in the press, but we digress!
While Thomas Jr. is unsure if the humanitarian has met Meg's mother, Doria Ragland, he does reveal that Harry's been introduced to her lighting director poppa… about six months ago:
It's never easy coping with a loss.
Prince Harry learned that first hand following the untimely death of his mother, Princess Diana, in 1997. As you may recall, Prince Charles' ex wife died in Paris due to a fatal car crash when Meghan Markle's beau was only 12-years-old. How sad!
So it's no wonder it took many years for the regal activist to come to terms with losing his mother. In a new documentary, named Prince Harry in Africa, the royal ginger revealed that throughout most of his childhood he did not deal with Diana's death.
