Queen in HYSTERICS over Christmas present from Meghan Markle
THE Queen burst out laughing when she received her first Christmas present from Meghan Markle which kept “her dogs company”, it has been reported.
The Royals exchanged gifts on Christmas Eve because of their German ancestry tradition.
Despite being cheap, Meghan’s novel choice of gift was a great success.
According to a royal source, Prince Harry’s bride-to-be bought his grandmother a singing toy hamster.
But before Her Majesty had time to fully look at the gift her corgis snatched it from her, causing the Queen to erupt in laughter.
The source told the Daily Star Online: “Meghan bought a little hamster that sings with a little rope for Her Majesty.
“It was so funny, especially when the corgis tried to take hold of the toy.
“She laughed and said ‘they can keep my dogs company!’”
The source went on to add that the Royals laid out all of their presents in a particular way on Christmas Eve.
“The gifts were on trestle tables in the white drawing room where the names were at each table for each family.”
In a guest appearance on the BBC’s Today programme earlier this year, Prince Harry was quizzed on how the 36-year-old Suits star had coped with meeting the “in-laws”.
The fifth-in-line to the throne revealed the Royals “loved” having Meghan join them for Christmas – in a break from tradition which normally dictates only married couples spend Christmas with the Queen.
And Prince Harry revealed the couple stayed at Anmer Hall with his brother Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge.
Harry said: “It was fantastic, she really enjoyed it. The family loved having her there.
“There is always that family part of Christmas and there’s that work element as well.

“And I think together we had an amazing time staying with my brother and sister-in-law. We were running around with the kids and Christmas was fantastic.
“As I said we are really looking forward to the New Year and looking forward to 2018 because I’m determined to make sure that the pendulum is going to swing and 2018 is going to be a fantastic year.”
He went on to say: “I think we’ve got one the biggest families I know and every family is complex.
“She has done an absolutely amazing job, just getting in there and it’s the family, I suppose, that she’s never had.”

Meghan may not yet be a member of royal family but she was treated like one after sitting down to a Christmas meal with the Queen, Duke of Edinburgh and their extended family.
Harry is thought to have introduced his fiancee to relatives including the Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, the Duchess of Gloucester and Princess Alexandra.
As well as Buckingham Palace, Meghan also joined the family for their traditional Christmas Day service and festivities in Norfolk.
