The Queen praised as Meghan Markle recalls monarch’s cute blanket gesture

The Queen has been showered with praise by UK viewers of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Oprah tell all.

The Duchess of Sussex recalled her first official engagement with Queen Elizabeth II where the 94-year-old offered to share her blanket to keep her warm.

Meghan explained how she found The Queen warm and welcoming – likening her to her own granny.

The heartwarming tale went down a storm with Twitter viewers.

Taking to social media, one fan wrote: "The Queen seems so cute!"

Another added: "The Queen made Meghan feel welcome. Long May She Reign."

A third continued: "The Queen didn't do anything to Harry or Meghan. She was welcoming and kind to them both."

Another chimed in: "I love Meghan’s story about the Queen."

A fifth praised: "Watching Harry & Meghan’s interview and omg the Queen sounds like a proper old granny sharing her blanket."

Meghan added that she found all members of the royal family welcoming but later claimed things changed.

Meghan and Harry's chat has sent shockwaves round the world after they claimed a senior royal asked Harry about what colour their first child's skin would be.

Meghan was not present for the alleged conversation between Harry and his family.

Harry refused to tell Oprah both on and off camera who the royal in question was.

He did add off camera that the alleged comment wasn't by The Queen or her 99-year-old husband Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh.

Meghan also told Oprah she was scared to be left alone when she was pregnant with Archie.

She explained how she felt so isolated that she was on the brink of suicide.

Meghan said she and Harry were sat on the steps of their cottage talking about her dark thoughts just hours before appearing at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Asked if she fears a backlash for speaking out, Meghan said: "I am not going to live my life in fear.

"I don't know how they could expect that after all of this time we would still just be silent if there is an active roll the firm is playing about perpetuating falsehoods about us.

"There is a lot that has been lost already."
