What does one buy the Queen of England for Christmas? We can only imagine how stressful newly engaged Meghan Markle’s first royal Christmas was -- but she reportedly handled the holiday like a champ.
According to The Daily Star Online, Meghan’s gift for the Queen left her in “hysterics.”
So what did she give Her Majesty? A singing hamster toy. Yes, a singing hamster toy.
“Meghan bought a little hamster that sings with a little rope for Her Majesty,” the Daily Star Online reports. “It was so funny, especially when the corgis tried to take hold of the toy. [The Queen laughed] and said ‘they can keep my dogs company!’”
While the gift may seem random, it was actually perfect because the Royal family traditionally buy each other comical, gag gifts for Christmas. They also switch things up by honoring their German heritage and opening presents on Christmas Eve.
