Here's what Meghan Markle and Hillary Clinton talked about during their secret meeting

Sounds like Hillary Clinton was able to give Meghan Markle that hug after all.

The same week that the former first lady said in an interview that she wanted to give the Duchess of Sussex a motherly embrace amid the turmoil she's been going through with the media, The Daily Mail reports that the two influential women secretly met at Meghan's home on Tuesday of this week.

The outlet cites a source who claims the women "hugged" upon Clinton's arrival at Frogmore Cottage before talking about a letter that Meghan wrote to Hillary when she was just 11 years old asking for her held to block a "sexist" advertisement for soap that she had seen on television.

"Both women have a lot of admiration for each other and it was a very sweet, warm meeting," the source said, "They are mutual fan girls!"

According to the report, Meghan's husband, Prince Harry, was also there to welcome Clinton to their home, and so was their 6-month-old son, Archie Harrison, who the former presidential candidate got to meet as she told Meghan about her newborn grandson, Jasper. (Her daughter, Chelsea Clinton, welcomed her third child in July.)

During an interview with BBC Radio 5 Live earlier this week, Clinton said that she thinks that race has "absolutely" played a role in the divisive media coverage of Meghan Markle and expressed her sympathy for the new mom.

"I have a great deal of feeling toward and about her, because it's one thing to be told what it will be like when you step onto the biggest stage with the brightest spotlight [and] joining the royal family, becoming president or first lady and his family in our country, and yet it's still really hard to imagine. It takes some getting used to, to have your every move scrutinized and analyzed and, frankly, things made up about," Clinton sounded off. "I really wish her and her husband the very best because they are struggling to have a life of meaning and integrity on their own terms. That's hard enough if you're just walking around in today's world, but if you're on that big of a platform, it's really difficult."

"I feel, as a mother, I just want to my arms around her. Oh, my god, I want to hug her!" she added. "I want to tell her to hang in there, [and] don't let the bad guys get you down. Keep going, do what you think is right. You know, it's not easy. And there are some techniques that can be learned along the way, some humor, some deflection, whatever. Which I'm sure that she will come to, but it is tough what she is going through, and I think she deserves a lot better."
