Lorraine added: “Obviously we don’t with them any ill will. I hope they will be happy, it just seems really sad.”

The couple got off lightly with Lorraine compared to her fellow GMB presenter Piers Morgan.

He was scathing about their decision to announce a “zero engagement policy” with tabloid newspapers this week.

Meanwhile, Piers branded Harry and Meghan “repulsive, deluded narcissistic tools” on Twitter.

He said they shouldn’t have made the announcement in the middle of a global pandemic.

Harry and Meghan reportedly had leaked details of their video call to the Queen to media outlets which they favoured.

However, other Royals have played a key role in comforting the public as the coronavirus pandemic.

Prince Philip, 98, released a rare statement yesterday to praise all the workers fighting on the frontline.

Meanwhile, the Queen gave an inspirational speech earlier this month, urging people to stay at home.

In addition, she reminded the population that “we will meet again,” in an echo of wartime solidarity.
