Copy a table cell and the cell background color

In Libreoffice writer, I have a table, I have for some cells selected a backgroundcolor through right click->properties->background color which works fine.

Now I want to copy a cell, I click ctrl-c and then ctrl+v. But only the content of the cell is copied not the background.

I have also tried Table->Chosse->Cell and then ctrl+c+ctrl+v And also tried the menu copy and menu paste.

But al result is that only the content is copied, not the background color.
