What’s Like To Have Lunch With The Duchess Of Sussex? Bryony Gordon Reveals

Well, if you have ever wondered about this, you finally have the answer. Bryony Gordon, who is an author, opened up about her relationship with the royal couple during Monday’s episode of Loose Women.

She described the Duchess as a “completely normal” despite her status.

“She is beautiful, graceful, lovely,” she said about the Duchess. “We spoke about yoga, she loves running,” Bryony revealed. Meghan even offered Bryony to share her food during their meal. What a sweetheart.

“She offered me some of her monkfish,” Bryony added.

Last year, Bryony had a frank conversation with Harry about mental health. On the podcast “Mad World,” Harry and Bryony discuss coming to terms with needing help in the form of therapy or just personally accepting that it’s okay to feel “weird” sometimes.

Bryony revealed: “It’s like chatting with a mate on the sofa with a cup of tea.” She reveals that Harry was completely ok with her calling him “Hazza.”

They also talked about his emotions following his mother Princess Diana’s traumatic death.

“I can safely say losing my mum at the age of 12 and then shutting down all my emotions for the next 20 years has a serious impact on not only my personal life but my work as well,” he said.

He continued, “I have probably been very close to a complete breakdown on numerous occasions when all sorts of grief and sort of lies and misconceptions and everything is coming to you from every angle.”

“And it was only three years ago from the support around and my brother as well that I realized it wasn’t normal to deal with this and to think nothing has affected you.”

“My way of dealing with it was sticking my head in the sand and not thinking about my mum because why would that help? It’s going to make me sad and not bring her back,” he added.

Harry – who at the time would have been dating Meghan – then went on to say that he now felt in a great place in both his work and personal life as a result of talking about his emotions.

“Yes, I am Prince, I have a house over my head, I have security, I have a car, I have a job that I absolutely love, but previous to that I had a job that I loved too. But because of the process I have been through over the past two or three years I have now been able to take my work seriously and my private life seriously too and put blood, sweat and tears into the things that I think really matter and will make a difference to everyone else.

“Things like Invictus Games wouldn’t have come off the ground if I hadn’t have dealt with all that stuff beforehand,” he said.
