Meghan Markle's cheap and amusing gift to Queen Elizabeth earns laughter

Meanwhile for the Queen, Meghan reportedly gave a singing hamster toy that she gave to her dogs. That's a pickle bride-to-be Meghan Markle found herself in when she celebrated her first Christmas with the royal family.

"Meghan bought a little hamster that sings with a little rope for Her Majesty", a source told the publication.

This year, Meghan broke tradition by spending Christmas with the royal family.

The source told Daily Star: "Meghan bought a little hamster that sings with a little rope for Her Majesty.It was so amusing, especially when the corgis tried to take hold of the toy".

Okay, yes there's loads of things way worse than that but following our recent Christmas outings (cue prams, understandably grumpy sales staff and the words "stock unavailable" ruining the majority of our online Christmas orders), you might forgive us for the OTT comparison.


But in typical Meghan style, she shrugged off the pressure and bought side-splitting presents that won her major brownie points.

Meghan also performed her first curtsey to the monarch over Christmas, when she, Prince Harry, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined the rest of the family at Sandringham for Christmas mass. The gifts are apparently on trestle tables in the palace's white drawing room. For example, Meghan's future sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, didn't attend any royal family Christmases until after she married Prince William in 2011.

"I was anxious what to give the Queen as her Christmas present", she said in the ITV documentary for Her Majesty's 90th birthday past year. He later added, "I think we've got one the biggest families I know and every family is complex. But I decided to make my granny's recipe of chutney".

Markle, who was said to have had stayed at William and Kate's Anmer Hall residences during the holiday, will Wednesday Harry in May.
