And with that one sentence, she moved everyone to tears. The audience, which included the likes of Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton was visibly touched to hear these words from the legend herself.
Talking about Angelique, she said, "She's an incredible person and she's a really good friend, so I'm really happy for her. This is her first title and I know she’s going to really enjoy it and enjoy the moment. So congrats again. It's amazing."
In her loss too, there was gratitude as she said, "It's obviously disappointing, but I can't be disappointed. I have so much to look forward to. I’m literally just getting started."
People supported her but not as much as her husband, though. Supporting her, he posted an Instagram picture of hers with an emotional message.
