This Morning criticise show over Meghan and Harry coverage

The royal couple have made headlines again

On This Morning today, viewers hit out at the show for having more debates about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have made headlines again for a series of reasons, mainly due to Meghan apologising for ‘misleading’ the High Court about her involvement in the Finding Freedom biography.

On Thursday’s This Morning, Vanessa Feltz and Camilla Tominey appeared on the programme and shared their thoughts on the couple.

In a witness statement, Meghan said she “had not remembered” that she had approved her and Harry’s former communications secretary to brief the book authors.

Vanessa said: “It’s absolutely riveting stuff. It’s actual documentary evidence of emails sent by Meghan and Harry to their communications officer in order to portray themselves in a particular way, in a flattering light, in a way that they have orchestrated, in a way that they want people to perceive them.

What did Vanessa say?

“Now that, I think many people will interpret, is incredibly manipulative.

“And I wrote down just one sentence that Prince Harry emailed Jason Knauf because I don’t think that it fits at all with the way that we thought Prince Harry operated as a human being.”

The email in question from Harry to Knauf allegedly said: “I totally agree that we have to be able to say we didn’t have anything to do with it.”

She added: “That’s not the Harry that we loved and knew is it?”

Meanwhile, royal commentator Camilla Tominey also spoke about the situation.

She said: “We were talking yesterday about the power of scrutiny and what journalists are here to do and journalists are here to try and have a look at the evidence and make sure the people who claim to be telling the truth are doing so.”

What did viewers say?

However, viewers took issue with the show for hosting more debates about the royal couple.

One person said on Twitter: “@thismorning stop the obsession with Meghan and Harry. Who cares? Have you taken a look at the world lately?”

Another wrote: “Jeez Meghan again? Why keep giving her airtime #ThisMorning?”

A third added: “#ThisMorning Seriously @ITV can’t leave Harry and Meghan from @GMB and bet to #LooseWomen.

“At least Meghan owns her mistake knowing public backlash against her.”

However others agreed with the points made, as one said: “Do Harry and Meghan ever take any responsibility for their own mistakes?”
