GMB's Ranvir Singh slams 'mean-spirited' Meghan Markle and Prince Harry for 'leaking' private conversations

GOOD Morning Britain's Ranvir Singh has branded Meghan Markle and Prince Harry "mean-spirited" for "leaking" private conversations with the royal family.

Yesterday, Meghan's close friend and US TV presenter Gayle King revealed that Harry had "unproductive" phone calls with dad Prince Charles and brother Prince William.

And Ranvir, Susanna Reid, and Ben Shephard debated the fall-out on the ITV breakfast show today.

The 43-year-old presenter mostly appeared to be confused by Meghan's decision to confide in Gayle – and undoubtedly give permission for her to then share the information.

Ranvir asked: "I wonder what's to be gained? What is the game plan? What is the gain from telling a very prominent TV presenter, who you know is going to go on TV and talk about it?"

She went on: "What is the gain for Meghan and Harry for allowing that information out. What is it? It seems a little bit mean-spirited.

"You’ve had your moment, you’ve had your two hours on telly where you’ve said everything you wanted to say. You just think: 'What is the point of it?' at this point, releasing little tidbits.

"Are we expecting to hear every conversation that happens?"

Ben responded: "Unless it’s to keep it out there – to keep the conversation viable so that they keep happening."

He'd previously branded the situation "uncomfortable", and called it one of the most "unsubtle" leaks.

Susanna agreed, saying that it was all just "really sad" before adding: "The fact of the matter is it’s going to be harder now because any conversation they have, the royal family are going to wonder if it’s going to be leaked."

Meanwhile, Dr Hilary Jones insisted that the royals need to have a private conversation with a neutral third party acting as mediator.

Ranvir continued: "It’s almost as if they didn’t get what they wanted and expected an immediate release of guilt and shame."

The palace are said to be "furious" that details of private peace talks with Charles and William were leaked yesterday.

Gayle had said on the programme: “Well, I’m not trying to break news, but I did actually call them to see how they are feeling and it’s true, Harry has talked to his brother and he has talked to his father, too.

“The word I was given was, those conversations were not productive. But they are glad they at least started a conversation.”

She also said there was “no word” on whether the Palace was investigating the claims made by pregnant mum-of-one Meghan in the Oprah chat – and that no members of the family had reached out to Meghan.

The Queen vowed last week that an investigation into the couple’s claims in a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey would be “addressed by the family privately”.
