Royal discussion

Janet Street-Porter is never short of an opinion or two when she appears on Loose Women.

Now, on today's programme (June 25), she told her fellow panellists that she doesn't think Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice should have the right to be called royals.

The panel was discussing Prince Harry and Meghan Markle spending £2.4million on refurbishments on their home, Frogmore Cottage.

"I don’t think it’s much money in the global scheme of running the Royal Family," Janet said.

But attention then switched to the rest of the Royal Family, where she was less charitable.

She told fellow panellists Coleen Nolan, Brenda Edwards and Kéllé Bryan: "I’d like to see the Royal Family slimmed down so there wasn’t Beatrice and Eugenie and all these other ones, all the peripheral ones."

Asked if she believed the Princesses had a right to be called 'royal', she said: "No. Not really. No, they’re royal by bloodline."
