Adlon and Markle were bonded by their fight with the United Kingdom naturalization testing. “I heard you just got your citizenship! A couple years ago?” Markle asked. “That citizenship exam is so hard! I was studying for it, and I remember going, ‘Oh my goodness.’ I would ask my husband, ‘Did you know this? Did you know this?’ And people went, ‘Oh, I had no idea.””

Adlon Laughed That the Test Was ‘Harder’ For Markle

Adlon joked, “I think they made it harder for you.” Markle replied, “You think?” The test Markle and Adlon had to pass is a 45-minute, 24-question exam that tests the taker’s knowledge on British traditions and customs. 

As part of her accession to the royal family, Markle became British citizens. It’s unknown exactly why Adlon applied for UK citizenship, but she officially became a British citizen in January 2020. In a deleted Instagram post, she wrote, “Oi! I am now a Citizen of the UK. Or a British Citizen. I can now work and play and live across the pond. (Also, I may have done it just to creep on Natascha McElhone, who knows). ps I’m not kidding. I’m a Brit now!”

A discussion on motherhood

Jay, Trudeau and Adlon also spoke out about motherhood and the importance of balancing work and family. The Duchess shared that she “longed to be” a wife and mother, but didn’t think those things meant she couldn’t also work.

“We are all doing the best we can,”She told her listeners. “So maybe it’s time to let go of these archetypes. These challenging, limiting archetypes riddled with so much judgment. So it’s less about that’s the right way to do it … and instead just focus on one thing: being a good person.”Harry and Markle live now in California. However, both have British citizenship. British royal fans hope that Markle and Harry will one day return to the UK with their children.
