She revealed on Good Morning Britain she didn't react well to the tease.

She said: “Harry and William, have mentioned it to me [about playing the Queen] and they have been very funny and very cool about it.

“I think Harry once at an awards ceremony said, ‘And granny is here’ and I was rather insulted by that. I mean, really!”

Dame Helen told the show she was full of praise for Meghan Markle."

She continued: “I think right from the moment that relationship was revealed she conducted herself with incredible self-restraint, elegance, discipline and simplicity and humanity," she said.

“I was an admirer… it’s an incredibly difficult life to lead, talk about pressure.

"I think she is doing it with great elegance."
