Meghan Markle Remembered A New Zealand Fan Who She 'Met' On Instagram Two Years Ago 😮

Phil Noble/PA and Hannah Sergel

A royal fan was “blown away" when the Duchess of Sussex recognised her at a public walk in Auckland, New Zealand.

The two exchanged messages on Instagram two years ago.


Hannah Sergel had exchanged messages with the Duchess in 2016, with the then actress Meghan Markle sending the student encouraging messages as she was starting university.

Waiting for Meghan at an event at the Viaduct Harbour, Sergel carried a sign saying:

“It's Hannah from Instagram"

The sign prompted Meghan to greet her and give her a hug. Sergel also wrote the Duchess a letter which she was able to pass on to her through her security team handing it to Prince Harry.

A video posted on social media showed the Duchess saying “oh my god, how are you?" after spotting Hannah in the crowd.






Sergel told Press Association:

“When I first saw her, I really got emotional. After the hug, I was so blown away, I couldn't comprehend what had happened."

The volunteer worker was so moved by the encounter, she joked on Twitter that the Prime Minister of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern, had to comfort her at the event.



She added that Prime Minister Ardern had even been sending her footage of the encounter via direct message.




Sergel—who co-founded the Twitter fan account Meghan Markle Daily—said this was the first time the two had met in person.


Of their Instagram correspondence, she said:

“Her messages were about me starting university and how I was going to do well if I just put my mind to it."

In addition to meeting Sergel, Duchess Meghan also greeted many fans who gifted her flowers and baby toys for her future child.

The public walk was part of a 16-day royal tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.

While visiting New Zealand, Meghan and Prince Harry participated in a welly throwing contest and planted a tree for the Queen's Canopy dedication.


They also visited with the Maori people.

There aren't too many things that would make you go, "Man, I'd rather go to hell than be here right now. Hell has demons, torture, fire, and all the ill-prepared pizza they can shove down my throat." However, if you had to choose between these people's predicaments and hell, you'd probably be ready to have pizza for dinner.

You don't need to have children to be successful, but gender roles and societal expectations are awful. Just ask any woman you know: Chances are she's been poked and prodded and interrogated over her decision not to have children.

Dad jokes can feel like the unloved step-sibling of the comical world. "Why would we laugh at something so obvious and stupid?"

Becuase it's hilarious, that's why. Just check out the following entries below and see for yourself.

Reddit user, u/GrotiusandPufendorf, wanted to know what the funniest jokes on the planet are when they asked:

What is your favorite dad joke?

A Murder Of Cows?

Giphy

Dad: Look at that flock of cows over there.

Kids: A HERD of cows.

Dad: Of course I heard of cows, there is a flock of them right over there.

Note: pulled that joke successfully a few times, and my kids even did it to their summer camp instructor.

We Should Probably Leaf

At the park with my girls: "Dad, can we go play?"

Me: "sure, just stay away from those trees over there"

Girls: " umm...ok, why?"

Me: " I don't know...they look a little shady to me."

That Joke Killed!

Why do graveyards have gates?

Because people are dying to get in.

My Dad always told it passing a graveyard.

Stating The Obvious, But Still Hilarious

I had a terrible day yesterday. As I was walking home, a man in a wheelchair stole my camouflage jacket!

As he was wheeling away, I shouted after him, "you can hide but you can't run!"

That's Always The Point

Not a joke in the traditional sense but, when I'm at a restaurant and the waitress says "Do you wanna box for that?" I always reply with "No, but I'll wrestle you for it."

No one ever gets it but it makes me laugh. And that's the point, right?

I tell dad jokes.

Sometimes he laughs.

Believing in dub stuff as a kid is par for the course. When we're children, we're just tinier humans with less life experience, right? But let's be real- some of the dumb things we believed were actually really, really dumb.

They always say, don't meet your heroes. But here's the thing- sometimes your heroes are actually just chill, normal people. This can be refreshing in a world of egos.

Oprah Winfrey may no longer be doling out free cars by the dozens like she did on her long-running day time talk show.

But that doesn't mean her generosity is history.
