Andrew Neil showed his frustration at Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, following their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey. While speaking on The Spectator Radio show with editor Freddy Gray, Mr Neil insisted many people simply did not care about the royal couple. He added he wanted the pair to fade into obscurity as he claimed they continuously spoke on topics of which they had no authority.
Mr Gray also mocked Meghan and Harry and warned the pair could turn into a cross between the Kardashians and Made in Chelsea if they continue.
Mr Neil said: “Those of us wish them no ill, but also have really no interest in what they have to say.
“Those of us who think what they have to say is of no importance and they talk about many things of which they no qualifications to talk about.
“It would be best if they just faded into obscurity.
