Eamonn Holmes slams Meghan and Harry as he brands their Oprah chat an ‘advert’

Eamonn Holmes has slammed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's decision to do a 90-minute tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey next month.

Much like his ITV co-star Piers Morgan, This Morning presenter Eamonn, 61, had some stern words for the former royals over their decision to take part in the CBS interview.

Branding their move as no more than an "advert", Eamonn suggested this is a marketing tactic because Oprah, 67, "is a mate".

"Well, it's not an interview really, is it? It's an ad, really. I mean, Oprah's a mate, Oprah was at her wedding," he told royal correspondent Camilla Tominey and Nick Ferrari.

"Meghan's mum stayed with Oprah at her home as a house guest. So it's not an interview as such," he added.

Camilla agreed with the notion, adding: "Well, I don't think she's going to be throwing really difficult questions at Meghan and admittedly it's going to be hugely sympathetic because, as you say, they're friends.

"Though interestingly, it's been pointed out that they'd only met once before Oprah turned up at the royal wedding in Windsor castle in May 2018."

"But yes, I think it's going to be a soft soap kind of an interview," Camilla added.

News of Harry and Meghan's CBS special interview came to light on Monday as the network announced the programme will air on March 7, titled Oprah with Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special.

The network said Oprah spoke with Meghan on “a wide-ranging interview covering everything from stepping into life as a royal, marriage, motherhood (and) philanthropic work, to how she is handling life under intense public pressure”.

The pair will later be joined “by Prince Harry as they speak about their move to the United States and their future hopes and dreams for their expanding family”.

The pair's decision to take part in the interview was not welcomed by outspoken Piers, who branded the pair "shameless grifters" in an explosive tweet.

What's more, Piers desperately urged The Queen to strip the pair of their royal titles.

Rushing to Twitter, outspoken Piers couldn't hold back as he slammed Harry and pregnant Meghan over their decision.

"Take away all their titles, Your Majesty," he wrote. "The British people are totally behind you against these shameless grifters."
