LORRAINE KELLY SAYS MEGHAN AND HARRY ‘HAVE BROUGHT ABUSE ON THEMSELVES A COUPLE OF TIMES’
Lorraine Kelly has said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have occasionally brought criticism on themselves.
Speaking to The Times Magazine, the daytime TV host compared the criticisms against the couple to social media trolling faced by politicians, describing the abuse experienced by Meghan Markle in particular as “absolutely shocking”.
But, Kelly argued, the vitriol is not entirely unprompted.
“I mean, a couple of times they have brought it on themselves, to be fair,” the 59-year-old broadcaster said.
“It’s that kind of ‘do as I say, not as I do’ thing that you have to be careful about. But they really do have the best intentions.”
Kelly’s comments come after an ITV documentary about the couple’s royal tour to southern Africa revealed they are both buckling under pressure in light of the scrutiny they’ve faced in the media.
