Graham asked Miranda if she had been hanging out with the royals after she presented the Jubilee Concert in 2012.

She did what can only be described as the yawn of a dog.

"I met her and I did the right thing I think, I did a little bob and she just stared at me, I’m not joking," she replied.

"I thought surely the rule was she starts the speaking, but I went ‘I was one of the presenters earlier in the concert’ and she went ‘oh’ and then stared."

"And then I’m not exaggerating, she did..." she added, mimicking a large yawn.

"She did what can only be described as the yawn of a dog."
