According to the Daily Star, the former Suits actress hit the nail on the head when she bought The Queen a singing hamster toy for her first Christmas as a royal.
A source told the publication: “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.”
The Queen reportedly “burst out laughing” and told Meghan: “It can keep my dogs company.”

Sadly, it wasn’t long before the corgis got hold of the funny present and ripped it to shreds.
This year’s Christmas is the first since Meghan and Harry stepped back as senior royals and moved across the pond.
It is thought the couple are spending the day at their £11m mansion in Santa Barbara.
In more Royal Family news, this is the hilarious moment Princess Charlotte refused to give a bouquet to a royal aide after she was gifted them by a “star struck” fan.
Meghan and Harry’s new card comes a week after William and Kate shared a photo with their three children.
Meghan also snagged her first post-Royal gig this year, providing the voiceover for a Disney Plus documentary about elephants.
