MEGHAN Markle LAUGHED at her royal title as Ellen called her the Duchess of Sussex in an interview.
The former actress, 40, let out a stifled giggle when the US talk-show host sarcastically read out her title while discussing her children's book The Bench.
Meghan caused a stir when she opted to use the "Duchess of Sussex" as her author name on children's book The Bench – despite wanting to cut ties Royal ties.
Sarcastic Ellen poked fun at the name during the sneak peak clip of her interview with the duchess – set to air tonight.
Meghan stifles a giggle at the comic voice Ellen uses before launching into a discussion about the kids' book – originally written as a poem for Harry for Father's Day.
Meghan and Harry can still be known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex after being given the titles as a wedding gift at their 2018 nuptials at Windsor Castle.
But they stepped down from royal life in a desperate bid for privacy – with Meghan revealing in her Oprah interview the damaging impact royal life had had on her mental health.
In the 80-second sneak-peak clip of the highly anticipated chat with host Ellen, Meghan goes onto discuss her children's book The Bench.
Meghan states: "I wrote this originally just as a poem for my husband on Fathers' Day and it was about my observation of him and him being a dad, which was the most beautiful thing to watch.
"And that was really the intention of it.
"Once it was shared with a couple of friends and people that we were close with they said: 'This resonates with me too because it feels really inclusive and there's representation and it's just a sweet love story between a family.'
"And I said, well ok lets turn it into a children's book and make sure that all those pieces of it – especially the softer side of masculinity, the softer side of fatherhood – are all in there and make sure that people can see themselves in these pages.
"Because I can remember as a little girl, you didn't always see someone who looked like you.
"And I thought that was really important to have everyone's story feel like it was unfolding on those pages for them."
A royal expert yesterday warned that Meghan's surprise interview with Ellen will spark dread" at the Palace following the chaotic aftermath of her Oprah tell-all.
In yesterday's clip, the Duchess of Sussex was a barrel of laughs as she joked candidly about life before joining the Royal Family.
But Angela Levin blasted "ruthless" Meghan as "desperate for publicity" for carrying out the interview amid the Queen's latest health scare.
The 95-year-old monarch has cancelled four public appearances in just one month – including this year's Remembrance Sunday service.
Angela said it is not the first time Meghan's interview choices have been questionable, after the "extraordinarily bad timing" of her bombshell Oprah tell all.
The expert, and author of Harry: A Biography of a Prince, told the Sun: "I think the palace dread everything she says because she can be so rude.
"The interview with Oprah was bad timing. Prince Harry's grandfather was ill. It is all about what is good to her. She's ruthless and she thinks of herself first."
In the Oprah chat, the Sussexes alleged there were conversations with Harry and a "family" member about their unborn son Archie and what colour his skin would be – and "what that would mean or look like".
