MEGHAN Markle has pretended to be a CAT and sang “meow, meow, meow” in a cringe-worthy Ellen sketch.
The Duchess of Sussex, 40, was forced to put on kitten ears and sing the chant during the side-splitting Ellen DeGeneres Show prank.
During her appearance today on Ellen DeGeneres’s famed chat show, it was revealed the former actress, 40, was keen to take part in one of the program’s famed pranks.
Ellen, 63, tells the audience: “When Meghan and I were talking about her doing the show, the first thing you said to me was ‘I want to do one of those IFBs’.”
An IFB, otherwise known as an interruptible foldback, is a tiny earpiece worn by a celeb – as Ellen feeds them cringe-worthy instructions to make a total fool of themselves in public.
And one of the pranks gave Meghan the purrr-fect opportunity to show off her acting skills.
After eating a cookie in front of the seller, Ellen told Meghan to start impersonating a CAT.
Grabbing two kitten-ear headbands from her bag, Meghan places them on her head before taking her next instruction through her earpiece.
She tells the vendor: “This is what I do for my kids to cheer them up, I sing a little song.”
The Duchess then begins singing: “I’m a kitten, meow meow meow.”
She repeats the hilarious sing-song and gets her assistant to join in – all while Ellen controls her actions from the studio.
The pair continue the catty chant and even put their hands out as if they were paws – with the audience erupting in laughter.
The Duchess of Sussex was also forced to tell a man selling hot sauce: “Mummy” wants some heat before munching tortilla chips like a chipmunk in the hilarious scenes.
Ellen tells the assistant to walk over and introduce herself as “Pawama,” the “executive assistant” to Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex.
She then has to tell the sellers to “act normally” as Meghan is heading over and wants to shop.
IS SHE FUR REAL?
The chat show host then goads the assistant to say “Thank you” at least five times before collapsing into giggles.
Ellen then instructs Meghan, via IFB, to touch her elbow, and then her nose – to confirm she can hear her.
With a dead-pan face she tells Meghan to do a squat if she can hear her as Meg, clearly embarrassed, takes a deep breath before lunging into a hilariously low squat.
The audience then collapses into laughter.
She also makes the Duchess scoff a cookie like a chipmunk as crumbs fall from her lips, all while referring to herself as “mummy”.
Ellen’s other cringe-worthy escapades include forcing Meg to make a joke with no punchline before goading the confused vendor into pretending she understands.
Eventually – after just over six excruciating minutes – the host hurries over, to put everyone out of their misery.
She explains it’s all a joke – and she’s been telling Meg what to say the whole time.
As they bid goodbye, Meghan says: “The cookies were delicious, so is the hot sauce – love the crystals!”
