She said: “We all we got to meet Meghan Markle and Prince Harry before the wedding and they were absolutely wonderful.

“They were very down to Earth, really approachable and very friendly. We even heard a little bit of Prince Harry’s voice!”

Meghan Markle is ‘no diva’

Karen disagreed with reports that Meghan had been behaving like a diva in the lead up to the royal wedding.

“We had such a fun time,” she added. “I have to say I didn’t see this person that I hear some people are talking about.

“Meghan was wonderful, he was wonderful and they were very much in love and about to get married.

“And. as couples do when they’re about to get married, they like things to be just so – and I think that’s fair enough.

“You have a particular vision for your day and why not?”

Karen continued: “You want it be lovely for the world but actually for each other and I think that song Stand By Me was very special to them.

“And they were completely right about how it sounded and the arrangement because the whole world, it feels like, loved the song.”

Royal wedding excitement

When asked about the royal wedding, Karen insisted that The Kingdom Choir weren’t at all nervous about performing in front of the entire world.

Instead, she and the other singer felt “extreme excitement”.

She added: “I remember us singing in the coach all the way from London to Windsor.

“The fact that we were being escorted by police escort, that helped to heighten the excitement.

“When we got to the church, the sun was shinning, there was such an air of anticipation and we bought into that.

“We were not nervous. We were ready.”

Lorraine is on ITV, weekdays at 9am.
