Mariah Carey has clarified what she meant when she called Meghan Marke a “diva”.

Carey recently appeared on Markle’s “Archetypes” podcast.

The full episode, the second in the podcast series, was released on Tuesday.

Markle admitted she was taken aback when Carey said the Duchess of Sussex gave us “diva moments sometimes”.

“I think it’s really important for people to remember that there could be this character,” Markle began. “And yeah, the diva thing that we can play in. I mean, it’s not something that I connect to. But, for you, it’s been a huge part of your…”

“You give us diva moments sometimes, Meghan,” Carey replied.

“Yes? What kind of diva moments am I giving you?” Markle asked.

“Don’t even act like — don’t do, like,” Carey replied.

“See, that’s the thing, I associate it differently,” Markle later said.

“I know, but let’s say you weren’t that beautiful and you didn’t have everything and you didn’t often have gorgeous ensembles,” the singer said. “You wouldn’t get, maybe that much diva stuff. I don’t care. I’m like, ‘When I can, I’ll give you diva stuff.'”

Carey saying the Duchess of Sussex had “diva moments” apparently made Markle “squirm”.

“You couldn’t see me, obviously, but I started sweating a bit,” Markle told the audience. “I started squirming in my chair in this silent rebellion, like, wait, wait, no, what? How? But? How could you? That’s not true, that’s not… Why what nonsense she must have read or clicked on to get her to say that I kept thinking, at that moment, that my crush on a girl was going to go away quickly? that she doesn’t really see me?

Markle said Carey quickly clarified what she meant, which then put her at ease.

“She must have heard my nervous giggle, and y’all would have heard it too,” Markle mused. “And she jumped on it to make sure I was crystal clear. When she said ‘diva,’ she was talking about the way I dress, the posture, the clothes, the ‘fabulous’, like she sees it. She meant ‘diva’ as a compliment. But I heard it as a dig. I heard it as the word ‘diva’, as I think of it.
