The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped down as senior members of the Royal Family in 2020 in a move which sent shockwaves around the globe. Ahead of Prince Harry releasing an “explosive” memoir about his life as a royal, Lorraine Kelly told ITV viewers Meghan Markle “saved him” from misery during a conversation with royal expert Russell Myers on Monday.
“One of these books did say something which I thought was very telling,” Lorraine began as she was speaking about royal books being published this year.
“One said Harry had been horribly unhappy before he met Meghan – within the whole system he had been really unhappy, and that she saved him.”
Lorraine said Meghan loved Harry “very much” and he saw her as his “way out” of the Royal Family.
Russell added: “She did him a kindness almost because we know this about Harry, we have seen him speaking eloquently about his issues with being in the palace machine.
“We talk about the spare and the heir quite unkindly but he has had a bit of a rough ride.
“I think they have gone off and made a success of things, but back to this book, if it does get quite nasty it won’t end well,” Russell concluded.
Harry’s tell-all memoir was due to be released at the end of this year but it is understood the release date has been pushed back following the Queen’s death.
It’s been reported Harry has made an 11th-hour attempt to “tone down” parts of the autobiography.
Russell also delivered some positive news about Meghan who is going to be awarded an honour at the GQ Awards in November for her charity work.
He said: “I think that is a bit of good news amid the darkness as they [Harry and Meghan] have been in for a bit of a rough ride, haven’t they?”
Lorraine agreed as she discussed the Duchess’ charity work since marrying Harry.
However, the Scottish broadcaster did say the couple has brought some criticism “on their own making” over the years.
Viewers were divided over Lorraine and Russell’s conversation about Meghan and Harry, with many taking to Twitter to voice their opinions.
@Cambridgegirl fumed: “Women supporting women? Not so much on #lorraine, I’m tired of the Meghan bashing now.”
Dee McBee penned: “In the aftermath of the Queen’s funeral all you can do is talk about Harry and Meghan. Doesn’t bode well for the future of the royal family if the rest are so boring #lorraine.”
Doll added: “Aren’t these people tired of slating Meghan off every chance they get? She’s living rent-free in their empty heads. Sad #lorraine.”
El remarked: “Swear they s**g Meghan Markle off on #Lorraine nearly every day. Just leave her alone.”
@TedsGan6 remarked: “Get a grip #lorraine. Leave Meghan and Harry alone try to concentrate on this appalling government if you feel you have to slate people.”
Erica said: “#Lorraine the pound hits a record low but let’s ignore that and talk about Meghan…the UK continues to embarrass itself.” (sic)
Lorraine airs on weekdays from 9am on ITV.
