WATCH: Meghan Markle takes part in hidden camera prank on Ellen

This is gas.

Meghan Markle swung by The Ellen Show earlier this week to catch up with her long-time friend, and to give a rare interview.

While there, Meghan gave an update on life in California, as well as how her two children – Archie and Lilibet – are getting on.

Markle told ‘Auntie Ellen’ that Archie “loves being a big brother” to Lili. She also shared how they adjusted to life as a family of four.

She said: “Someone told H and I that when you have one kid it’s a hobby, and two children is parenting.

“Suddenly we realised ‘oh right’, everyone talks about what it’s like for the second child but no one talks about the adjustment for the first child when the second one comes along.

“I think they have that moment of ‘oh, this is fun, oh this is how it is now’.”

While viewers were pleased to see Meghan looking happy and relaxed, it wouldn’t be The Ellen Show without some hijinks, and, thankfully, Meghan was game.

In the car park of the studio, Ellen’s team installed some hidden cameras and hooked Meghan up to Ellen through an earpiece.

For starters, an actor, posing as Meghan’s executive assistant briefed vendors in the lot to treat Meghan normally before the chaos began.

During the segment, the Duchess of Sussex approached a crystal salesman and told him she had healing powers before holding a crystal to her head and singing a chant.

Moving on, she asked a salsa vendor to “let Mommy taste some”, as her “boo” likes hot sauce and then ate nachos like a chipmunk. After a particularly hot chip, Meghan then cooled down by drinking milk straight from a baby bottle.

Finally, she approached a cookie vendor and serenaded her with a song about being a kitten.

Ellen then finally shattered the illusion and let the unsuspecting vendors in on the prank.
