Meghan Markle 'Left The Royals In Tears' With Her Christmas Presents

Meghan Markle 'Left The Royals In Tears' With Her Christmas Presents

Meghan Markle has proven she's not afraid of a bit of banter with the in-laws - even though she's marrying into one of the most formal families in the world.

This Christmas the bride-to-be reportedly sacked off the Lynx gift set and novelty socks and decided to think outside the box for the guy who'll soon become her bro-in-law, opting to give William a present that took the piss out of his lack of hair.

According to the Daily Star, she gave him a Tam O'Shanter hat - the traditional Scottish headgear that often involves a tartan cap with lots of fake ginger hair poking out from underneath.

She'd been staying with her royal in-laws for the Christmas period, who were at the Queen's Sandringham estate in Norfolk.

A royal source reportedly told the paper: "She bought William a Scottish cap with ginger hair.

"It was very funny - he saw the funny side too thankfully."

For once, 'shanter' doesn't mean what we're used to it meaning (shit banter, obviously) - quite the opposite. You can just imagine ol' Queenie creasing up, absolutely howling.

Speaking of the Queen, Markle reportedly made sure to get her something a bit different, too. No perfume, posh choccies or silk pyjamas for Liz, but a singing toy hamster. Of course.

A source told the paper: "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'."

We're guessing receiving something on the tackier end of the scale was actually a bit of a novelty for her, but it's good to know Her Maj' isn't too hard to please either way.

Ever since Meghan and Harry's engagement was announced, she's been busy smashing tradition and putting a breath of fresh air into the British monarchy, which is often thought of as more than just a bit stuffy.

The fact that she's divorced will have ruffled a few feathers, as divorcees haven't historically gone down too well with the royals. Most famously was the relationship between divorced American socialite and Edward VIII - which resulted in the British king having to abdicate.

There was a pretty big breakthrough in 2005 when Prince Charles finally wed Camilla Parker-Bowles, coming together even though they'd both been married before. It became a bold and promising move, showing that the royals were finally chilling out a bit with the stigma of marital breakdown.

Meghan also broke long-standing family tradition when she became the first royal fiancée to spend Christmas Day with the Harry's family. Even Princess Diana didn't do that, though that's not exactly surprising, let's face it.

Whatever your thoughts on the royal family are, there's no denying that Meghan coming in and shaking things up is kind of great - especially as she's clearly not averse to some good old-fashioned piss-taking. Plenty more of that please, Markle.
