Watch the full interview with Dickie Arbiter, the Queen’s former press secretary, on episode two of Yahoo UK’s brand new show ‘The Royal Box’ from Friday 22 June.
It’s clear the Queen’s taken Meghan Markle under her wing.
The monarch invited Meghan to spend Christmas at Sandringham and accompanied the 36-year-old on a trip to Cheshire earlier this month.
The outing appeared to go without a hitch, with the Queen and newly-titled Duchess of Sussex seemingly enjoying one another’s company greatly.

It’s not often we see the 91-year-old in stitches, but the Queen clearly loves her new granddaughter-in-law’s sense of humour, says royal biographer and editor of Majesty magazine Ingrid Seward.
“Meghan’s very bright and sassy and she’s probably very funny,” says Ingrid, during episode two of ‘The Royal Box’.
“The Queen likes a bit of a wit and people are so deferential to her she probably finds Meghan’s American openness really refreshing.
“She does obviously enjoy her company.”
