Admit it, we Filipinos love it when foreigners speak our language. Especially, if they’re famous.
We’ve heard several international stars and gushed at every one of them, but the latest addition to the list is no one else than future British royal family member and current fashion it-girl Meghan Markle.
The “Suits” actress greeted fans from all over the world during their visit at the Edinburgh Castle last February 13, including a group of Filipinos who got a sweet surprise when she said hi to them and thanked in Filipino.
“Salamat po,” she said in American accent and a big smile. Then our fellow Pinoys just went, “aww!” on that and frankly, we probably would too!
Meghan is engaged to Prince Harry of Wales and they are set to tie the knot in St. George’s at Windsor Castle this May 19.
Prince Harry and his brother and future king Prince William also got a Filipino connection growing up through their nanny Araceli “Lillie” Piccio.
