Meghan and Harry: Gogglebox star makes ‘Flog It!’ joke
The Gogglebox families will be watching Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey in this evening’s episode and are sure to have some interesting takes on the extraordinary claims. Previously, they were not too kind about certain members of the Royal Family after watching Season Four of the Netflix drama The Crown. The new episodes, set in the Eighties, centred around Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s marriage, as well as the Queen’s relationship with Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
The Gogglebox stars were not too impressed with Charles’ behaviour in the TV show, nor with Camilla, who he had an affair with and later married.
After watching the episode where Charles sets up a lunch date between Diana and Camilla, brother and sister duo Pete and Sophie gave a savage response.
In the clip, Charles, played by Josh O’Connor, said: “I’ve asked Mrs Parker Bowles to get in touch with you.”
Diana, played by Emma Corrin, said: “Your ex? Why would you do that?”

Charles responded: “I thought you wanted company. She’s the best company.”
Watching this play out, Pete retorted: “Do you know what? I almost wished Prince Charles a happy birthday the other day as well on Twitter.”
Sophie said: “I bet you’re glad you didn’t now!”
Pete quipped: “I am now! He can shove it up his a***!”

Another Gogglebox star questioned why, after becoming incredibly suspicious about Charles and Camilla, Diana still went through with marrying the prince.
Another joked: “She was too far involved. The tea towels had been made and everything!”
The Crown Season Four triggered a similar reaction from many members of the public and Clarence House was actually forced to close its comments on its social media channels due to trolling directed at Charles and Camilla.
However, Meghan and Harry’s Oprah interview is potentially even more explosive.

The couple claimed there had been “concerns and conversations” about how dark their baby’s skin might be.
Meghan also opened up about her mental health struggles and claimed she had not been supported enough by the institution.
The Duchess also claimed that reports that she made Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, cry were incorrect and that it had actually been the other way around.
Meanwhile, Harry accused the Royal Family of cutting him off financially and claimed his father Prince Charles stopped taking his calls at one point.

Buckingham Palace released a statement on Tuesday which read: “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.”
“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning.
“While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.
“Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved family members.”
The reaction in the UK has been mixed, with 22 percent of people sympathising more with the Sussexes and 36 percent saying their sympathies lie with the Queen and the Royal Family.
Around 28 percent said they felt no sympathy for either camp and 8 percent said both, according to YouGov.
