Janet replied: “Well it’s not the kind of interview that I do because I don’t normally do interviews from the bended knee position.”

She questioned Meghan and Harry’s decision to do the interview despite their desire to have more privacy.

However, Denise admitted she has “never been so passionately in support of two people that I have never met before”.

The actress listed all the achievements Meghan made before meeting Prince Harry before going to to discuss the “vilification” she received during her pregnancy with son Archie.

Denise said one article about Kate Middleton read: “Pregnant Kate tenderly cradles her bump.”

However, an article about Meghan said: “Why can’t Meghan stop touching her bump, it’s embarrassing.”

Janet asked Denise: “Do you think they can still be patrons of charities in this country if their resident in California?”

Denise replied: “That is up to the charities themselves.”

Janet said: “But I question whether you can have the same impact from the other side of the Atlantic.”

Denise said: “I’m sure if they [charities] didn’t want them to be patrons any more, they’d step down.”

As Charlene got involved in the debate defending the royal couple, Janet said: “This interchange with the three of you and me just proves you can’t talk about Meghan in a balanced way…”

Denise cut in: “But she’s not discussed in a balanced way, Janet. The press are vile to her.”

She then added: “The privacy thing is that they’ve asked for no unauthorised intervention into their lives.

“They can’t possibly be unprivate, they’re Meghan and Harry.”

Janet said: “I think you do a good job of sticking up for them Denise and we’ll have to agree to disagree.”
