Susanna cut in: “That’s a terrible thing to say.”

Piers said: “Well he’s got ginger hair and she makes me cringe.

“When they did their Spotify thing and little Archie was brought in to flog it with his line, did it not make you go [gestured to show him cringing]?”

Susanna said: “No, he is a part of their family and if they want to include him then why not?”

As an audio clip played of Archie wishing listeners a happy new year, Susanna gushed: “I think it’s gorgeous!”

Shaking his head, Piers said: “Really gorgeous and, of course, a perfect way to protect his privacy.”

Susanna and Piers then clashed again over Meghan and Harry keeping their royal titles.

Well he’s got ginger hair and she makes me cringe.

Piers said: “Here’s my point, hear me out.

“It all comes down to the same thing. Would Spotify have given them £2 if they weren’t the Duke and Duchess of Sussex?”

Susanna said: “Yes, they would have still given them the money. They would because they’ve got the profile.”

Piers and Susanna clash

Piers hit back: “They wouldn’t have the profile without being members of the royal family.

“They are fleecing their royal titles to make money, you know they are.”

However, Susanna pointed out: “If you strip them of their titles, they will still be Harry and Meghan.”

Piers replied: “Fine, let them go and do their thing as Meghan and Harry, but stop using the Queen.

“I’m sorry, we’ve had this debate many times.

“It is completely inappropriate for members of the royal family to use their titles to fleece commercial entities in this way.”
