Meghan Markle stunned onlookers after she was heard speaking Filipino to a couple of fans!
Prince Harry and Meghan were on tour in Edinburgh when the actress responded to a fan in Filipino
During their visit to Edinburgh Castle on February 13, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry took the time to greet and talk with onlookers as they continue their pre-wedding tour. But one extremely sweet moment from this meet-and-greet is going extremely viral.
At one point, the couple was separated as they each took the time to meet with as many as people as they possibly could before entering the Scottish castle. The American actress impressed onlookers as she spoke with a couple from the Philippines, who were celebrating their anniversary.
After congratulating the excited pair, Meghan used the Filipino phrase 'Salamat Po', which means 'thank you' in Tagalog. From the expression on her face, Jenny Ulay was clearly shocked to see that Meghan could speak the language, but she politely replied "Salamet".
The delighted lady could then be heard on camera exclaiming, "Oh my goodness, so sweet!" as Meghan moved on to speak to the next group of people.

Meghan owes the knowledge of the language to her upbringing in Los Angeles, California, where there is a big Filipino population. As per the Mirror, the 36-year-old previously wrote: "Growing up in LA, with its melting pot of vast and varied cultures, I was no stranger to the Filipino community."
"I enjoy making slow-cooked food on Sundays, like Filipino-style chicken adobo. I can whip up a big pot of chicken adobo (marinated chicken) like it's nobody's business, and you'll occasionally hear me toss out a 'Salamat po' conversationally."
The royal couple was in Edinburgh just last week as part of their tour of Scotland where they also visited Social Bite, a Scottish organization helping to end homelessness, and the Palace of Holyroodhouse, which was hosting a reception for Scottish Year of Young People.
While it may have been a small gesture, it's sweet of Meghan to go an extra mile for people who admire her.
