Meghan Markle was forced to do a squat and claim that she had "healing powers" in public.

The Duchess of Sussex had to perform a series of hilarious dares by her host Ellen Degeneres when she appeared on her daytime talk show.

Meghan was sent out to do some shopping, and she had to wear an earpiece as Ellen fed her what to say to the vendors during the on-air prank.

At the start of the sketch, Ellen said: "I sent Meghan out to do some shopping. She wore an earpiece and had to say and do everything I told her to do."

Meghan was also given a purse to carry around, but the catch was that she didn't know what was in it.

At one point, Ellen tasked the former Suits actress with touching her elbow and nose before asking her to squat – in an apparent test to see if Meghan could hear her.

Firstly, Ellen said: "Now, Meghan, if you can hear me, touch your elbow".

Meghan obliged before Ellen instructed her: "Alright, touch your nose if you can hear me", which Meghan did too.

Then Ellen said: "Do a squat if you can hear me" and the former royal did just that, which left the studio audience in fits of laughter.

Ellen then got Meghan to keep repeating the phrase "this is a lovely day" until it lost all meaning.

Later, Meghan had to pretend she was something of a spiritual healing expert.

For this, she had to demonstrate her 'skills' by saying "Watch me!" before enthusiastically touching all of the items on one vendor's display table.

At the end of the clip, which was posted by a fan on Twitter, Meghan says: "I have healing powers".

In the rare interview, Meghan also spilled the gossip on her secret Halloween date with her hubby Prince Harry before they were married.

Meghan said that they had to keep things under wraps at the time as nobody was allowed to know they were dating.

Ellen asked: "And you got to go to a Halloween party?"

Laughing, Meghan said: "We did.

"He came to see me in Toronto and our friends and his cousin Eugenie and now her husband Jack, they came as well.

"And the four of us snuck out in Halloween costumes to have one fun night on the town before it was out in the world that we were a couple."
