Australian news reporter Amelia Adams has had a dig at Meghan Markle over her appearance on The Ellen Show.

The Duchess of Sussex sat down with her pal Ellen DeGeneres for an interview and she reminisced about her life before marrying Prince Harry.

But Amelia couldn't help taking a swipe at Meghan, 40, who laughed and joked as she remembered her old beaten-down car.

After sharing a clip on the Today show, Amelia quipped: "Yeah… she's just keeping it real there in a $4,000 Oscar De La Renta blouse.

"Safe to say she has moved up in the world since those days."

Today co-host Karl Stefanovic, who is not shy when it comes to sharing his barbed views on Harry and Meghan, had a laugh after Amelia's comment.

He said: "Well done, Amelia, well done. A little sting in the tail there, I like that."

In the interview, it appears that Meghan is wearing the Oscar De La Renta Broderie anglaise silk-blend crepe tunic, which retailed for between £2,811 and £3,920 in the UK when it was in stock.

It's a far cry from her days unable to afford a decent car – or proper meals, it seems.

Meghan recently said that she "grew up on the $4.99 salad bat at Sizzler" in a letter to US politicians, in which she asked them to vote for Joe Biden's plan to improve maternity and paternity pay.

She, Harry and their children Archie and Lilibet now live in a $14million (£10m) mansion in Montecito, though her net worth is difficult to estimate.

Some outlets estimate Meghan is worth more than $50m (£37m) while Forbes suggests it is closer to the more modest sum of $5m (£3.7m).

There was also confusion over her apparent lack of money during her childhood when it emerged that she had attended the $16,000-a-year Little Red Schoolhouse, her dad Thomas was a top Hollywood lighting director, and they regularly ate at restaurant Musso and Frank Grill, with prices of a steak dinner there costing around $55.

While Thomas also earned well from his career in lighting, he also won $750,000 on the lottery when Meghan was nine.

Meghan wrote in her letter: "I worked all my life and saved when and where I could – but even that was a luxury – because usually it was about making ends meet and having enough to pay my rent and put gas in my car."
