GB News has been slammed for teasing a world exclusive set to ‘rock the royals’ only for it to be Thomas Markle announcing he’s making a trip to the UK.
The Duchess of Sussex’s father joined the programme on Monday night where he revealed he is planning to fly to England in June for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and has hopes to meet members of the royal family and his grandchildren – Archie and Lilibet – for the first time.
He also weighed in on Prince Harry’s recent NBC interview, in which he said he wanted to make sure that the Queen is ‘protected and has the right people around her’.
The network had branded Thomas’s interview ‘unmissable’, but critics were a little underwhelmed by the big reveal.
‘That’s it? Hardly earth shaking is it?’ one slammed.
Echoing a similar sentiment, another raged: ‘Is that it ??? World exclusive ???? Are you serious ???? Who cares ??? Omg.’
‘Why on earth do the media keep giving this man coverage?’ another person asked.
During his appearance on the programme, Mr Markle said it was ‘very rude’ of Prince Harry and Meghan not to have brought their children to see the Queen.
‘It makes no sense at all,’ he slammed. ‘Not seeing these children makes no sense at all. The Queen should have every right to see her great-grandchildren, I should have the right to see my grandchildren.’
He also hit out at Prince Harry for awkwardly dodging a question about whether he misses Prince Charles and William.
‘I think he owes an apology to his father, he certainly owes an apology to the Queen, and Meghan as well should be making the same apologies,’ Mr Markle said.
