As much as I wanted a Zoom interview with Duchess Meghan this morning on Good Morning America, I’m happy that it wasn’t that. GMA had been airing a hype-commercial about how they were carrying a new interview with Duchess Meghan, but “new” is a relative term. It was new to us in that we have never seen it. It was not new in the sense that the “interview” was filmed last year as part of a behind-the-scenes hype thing for Disney’s Elephant, the documentary Meghan narrated. Here you go:

It’s fine. It is what it is: a Disney promotion on the network owned by Disney. But it did make me wonder if and how Meghan (especially) will give her “first interview,” post-royal.
