Kelly Rowland has insisted Meghan, Duchess of Sussex was "royal" before she met Prince Harry.

The 42-year-old singer believes everyone should carry themselves as if they are regal and insisted the former actress - who married Harry in May 2018 - has always been that way.

She gushed to Britain's HELLO! magazine: "She was royal before she was in that family.

"I think that we are royalty before anything. And we have to hold ourselves in that regard as humans, as people."

The 'Motivation' singer met Meghan when they both attended Beyonce's 'Renaissance' concert in Los Angeles in September and Kelly was very impressed by the "cool" former 'Suits' star.

She said: "It was my first time meeting her. It was just nice being there with other great women and being able to just simply talk.

"I don't know what people expect to see or to know, but she just felt very cool and very down to earth. She is very warm."

But despite Kelly's belief it was the first time she had met Meghan - who, along with her husband, stepped down as working royals to start a new life in America three years ago - the pair actually previously crossed paths in 2014.

At the time, the duchess shared a photo on her now-defunct lifestyle blog The Tig featuring herself, Kelly and stylist Joe Zee at New York Fashion Week.

Meanwhile, Beyonce herself has previously heaped praise on Meghan, who is mother to Prince Archie, four, and two-year-old Princess Lilibet.

In the wake of Harry and Meghan's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021, the 'Formation' singer showed her support for the couple.

On her website, she wrote: "Thank you Meghan for your courage and leadership. We are all strengthened and inspired by you."

Then, during an episode of the Netflix docuseries 'Harry + Meghan', which aired a year later, the duchess told her husband that the singer had reached out to them and offered her support.

Meghan explained: "She said she wants me to feel safe and protected. She admires and respects my bravery and vulnerability and thinks I was selected to break generational curses that need to be healed."
