A fourth added: “Is there nothing else going on in the world @BBCBreakfast. No more Harry and Meghan please.”

Ent Daily has contacted reps for BBC Breakfast for comment.

Meanwhile, Harry and Meghan’s interview – which first aired in the US on Sunday – made a series of claims and revelations.

The Duchess of Sussex spoke candidly about her mental health struggles, revealing she had been suicidal while pregnant with son Archie.

She told Oprah Winfrey: “I was ashamed to say it at the time and ashamed to have to admit it to Harry.

“But I knew that if I didn’t say it – then I would do it. I just didn’t want to be alive anymore.”

Meanwhile in the interview, Meghan claimed there were “concerns and conversations about how dark [Archie’s] skin might be when he was born” within the family.

She said: “In those months when I was pregnant, we had in tandem the conversations of him not being given security or a title.

“And also concerns about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.”

After the interview aired in America, Oprah confirmed the unnamed individual was not the Queen or Prince Philip.

Meanwhile, the Palace has released a statement saying it is taking the claims “very seriously”.
