Twitter users are mocking Meghan’s cringeworthy interview with friend Ellen Degeneres for her chat show, declaring the segment so ‘awful’ it made them want to vomit.
Social media is ablaze with hilarious memes including reality star Kris Jenner exclaiming, ‘This is ridiculous’, Project Runway’s Tim Gunn pulling a sick face and Ru Paul declaring: ‘Who cares!?’
Meghan left a group of Los Angeles street vendors open-mouthed in shock by dancing and singing in front of them while referring to herself as ‘mommy’ as part of a cringe-worthy on-the-street prank during the show.
Having shared several insights into her ‘happy’ family life in California with Prince Harry and their two children, five-month-old Lilibet and two-year-old Archie – who was seen in a new picture shared by the Duchess during the show – Meghan, 40, made a clear attempt to distance herself from the royal family‘s reserved image with the toe-curling bit.
One critic commented: ‘Meghan popping up on Ellen further proves she never understood the difference between a Royal Member and a celebrity. What an epic fall from the top.’

Social media users flooded the internet with Gifs and memes after the interview, with some declaring the Duchess had had an ‘epic fall from the top’
One critic shared a meme of Real Housewives of Orange County star Victoria Gunvalson declaring: ‘You can’t fix stupid.’
Meanwhile another simply posted an image of Pumba, from the Lion King, singing: ‘Oh the SHAME!’
During her surprise appearance on the final season of Ellen’s talk show, the Duchess stepped outside of the studio to pull a prank on a trio of vendors, which saw her forced to do and say whatever the talk show host told her to via a hidden ear piece.
To kick off the bit, a gleeful Ellen, 63, asked Meghan to touch her elbow and nose, and then do a squat to confirm that she could hear all of the talk show host’s instructions, while one of the series’ producers approached the vendors to inform them that the Duchess of Sussex wished to browse their stalls.
Prankster: Meghan swigged milk from a baby bottle, sang a kitten song, and danced to ‘hot, hot, hot’ while taking part in a toe-curling on-the-street prank with Ellen DeGeneres on Thursday
‘Let mommy have a taste’: The 40-year-old made a clear attempt to distance herself from the royal family’s reserved image by pranking a trio of street vendors while her close friend Ellen, 63, told her what to do and say
‘I am executive assistant to Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex and she’s here today and would love to just shop normally,’ the producer – using the fictional name Pwamma – told them. ‘She just wants to be treated normally. Don’t try to act any other way, just totally normal. Is that cool?’
Meghan then approached the first vendor and began inspecting the crystals on their stall, before Ellen instructed her to hold one to her head and begin groaning and moaning.
‘I’m going to hold this against my head,’ the mother-of-two told the perplexed salesperson, before closing her eyes and mumbling, adding: ‘That is wonderful.’
Moving on to the next vendor, who was showcasing different varieties of hot sauce, Meghan began ‘bouncing up and down’ in excitement at Ellen’s request, while asking the man: ‘What do we have here? What have you got, what have you got, what have you got?’
The prank began with Meghan doing a squat in the street to confirm to her close friend Ellen that she could hear her instructions via the ear piece
Inspecting the bottles of hot sauce lined up on the table, Meghan then told the baffled vendor: ‘Let mommy have a taste,’ before telling him, ‘My boo loves hot sauce.’
After being presented with a hot sauce covered chip, the Duchess proceeded to chomp down on it ‘like a chipmunk’ and Ellen’s behest, nibbling on the snack while holding it to her mouth with both hands, before telling the salesman: ‘That’s not spicy! Let me try something real hot, mommy wants some heat.
‘Let’s get the spiciest, let’s get the hottest.’
Seizing another chip from the man, Meghan was instructed to ‘shove the whole thing in her mouth’ – and then begin furiously fanning at her face while saying: ‘Oh lordy, lordy, lordy.
‘I’m feeling hot, hot, hot,’ she then sang to the tune of the hit song by The Merrymen, while doing a brief dance to the tune.
Ohm: Meghan approached three stalls and browsed the wares of each one – including a range of holistic items on the first, where she put a crystal up to her head and began groaning
She then exclaimed: ‘Mommy needs some milk,’ and pulled out a baby bottle from her purse, before vigorously swigging milk from it, all while the vendor looked on open-mouthed, unable to hide his bewilderment over her behavior.
Meghan’s bag of surprise tricks was also put to use at the third and final stall, where the Duchess was presented with a range of cookies by a young salesperson called Yasmin.
‘Can mommy have a sample of this?’ the Duchess asked, before once again nibbling on the food like a chipmunk.
She went on to ask Yasmin if she would ‘like to hear a joke’, saying to her: ‘Why did the elephant put his trunk in the cookie jar?’
At one point, Meghan also pulled two pairs of cat ears out of her purse, telling a third vendor that she wanted to show her ‘what she does for her kids to entertain them’
While the vendor awaited the punchline, Meghan stood in completely silence, before bursting into laughter and yelling: ‘It’s funny isn’t it? It’s a funny one,’ while Yasmin stared at her in confusion.
‘Yasmin you know what? You know what I do for my kids to entertain them?’ the mother-of-two went on to the stunned seller, while pulling out two pairs of kitten ears from her handbag and handing one to ‘Pwamma’.
‘Pwamma and I are going to show you what mommy does,’ she said. ‘Pwamma you put one on and I’ll put one on. This is what I do for my kids to cheer them up.’
Meghan then burst into song, dancing around with the ears on her head while holding her hands up like kitten paws and singing: ‘I’m a kitten mew mew mew. You’re a kitten mew mew mew. Mew mew mew, mew mew mew.’
