Julia Hartley-Brewer angers This Morning viewers as she makes dig at Princess Diana

ITV viewers rushed to social media to hit back

This Morning viewers were left raging at Julia Hartley-Brewer on today’s show (November 1).

Julia was joined Gyles Brandreth, along with hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, to discuss some of the week’s biggest issues.

However, viewers became unhappy when the conversation turned to the Queen’s health struggles.

When discussing who will take over from the Queen, Julia’s opinion rubbed fans up the wrong way.

What did This Morning star Julia say?

Julia said: “I think the main thing from this is, imagine the poor Queen being told to sit at home right now and being told to have bed rest for two weeks!

“But she wants to be out and about. She wants to be greeting the world leaders and she wants to be doing her duty.

“She was so quick to be out and about and get back to normal life as much as possible. I take my hat off to her,” she explained.

Julia continued: “You know my views. I’ve been a republican for many, many years but she’s played an absolute blinder. I just think none of these people are a very good replacement for her.”

She added: “I do think that Camilla has come into her own in recent years. She has shown herself to be a very dutiful royal.

“And she clearly makes Prince Charles a lot happier than the first wife…”

What did This Morning viewers say?

This Morning viewers rushed to social media to blast Julia for her “first wife” remark.

“Look at JHB sticking up for Camilla and trying to get us to accept her as our new queen. She’s making it seem like the public love Charles and he’s not the problem here too #ThisMorning,” said one viewer.

A second tweeted: “[Bleep] off JHB! We like Diana or ‘the first wife’. Charles should NOT become the King when the Queen dies. Prince William & Catherine all the way! #thismorning”.

“Go away Julia #thismorning,” ranted another.
