THIS Morning's Phillip Schofield has hit out at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after their explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Phillip, 58, was grumpy during a segment about claims that members of the Royal Family are still yet to speak to the Duchess of Sussex following the interview.
He accused the pair of "stabbing a knife through the heart of the monarchy".
Hosts Phil and Holly Willougbhy were joined by commentators Beverley Turner and Gyles Brandreth to discuss claims by journalist Gayle King.
In the bombshell interview, Meghan made a series of claims – including allegations an unnamed royal had raised “concerns” about the “skin colour” of her and Harry’s children.
Her friend Gayle King today revealed she had spoken to the couple over the weekend as the fallout from the interview rumbles on.
The TV host told CBS: "I think what is still upsetting to them is that the palace keeps saying they want to work it out privately, but yet, the false stories are coming out that are disparaging against Meghan still.
"No one in the royal family has talked to Meghan yet at this particular time.
"They both want to move forward with this and they both want healing in this family. At the end of the day, that's Harry's family."
While Beverley was not happy with Meghan leaking information to CBS news anchor, Gayle, Phil took it one step further.
"There's been an enormous amount of sympathy over the race issue and the mental health issue… but looking at the polls that sympathy seems to be ebbing away," Phillip started.
"Isn't there this feeling Gyles, that you've made your point, essentially shut up now and get on with your quiet American life, you've stabbed a knife through the heart of the monarchy… but stop now."
Gyles agreed and accused of Meghan of not keeping family matters private.
This Morning viewers were divided over Phil's comments with some accusing him of being "dramatic".
"Stabbed a knife at the heart of the monarchy?! A bit dramatic Phil," wrote one Twitter user.
Another added: "I see #thismorning is continuing to be an intensely toxic show with the male host beating the drum for the “We Hate Meghan” brigade along with his two zoom cheerleaders."
And a third said: "I like Harry & Meghan, but they shouldn't be letting 'friends' speak for them. Sick of hearing it now."
Gayle's claims come after she revealed Harry had spoken to Prince William and Prince Charles following the interview.
But she said the chat was "unproductive" as the Firm continue to reel from the sensational allegations the couple made.
In one of the bigger bombshells made, Harry claimed William and their father, Prince Charles, were “trapped” by their royal responsibilities.
The Duke of Cambridge was forced to deny his family were racist last week when he visited a school.
And the Queen released a carefully-worded statement last week saying she was "saddened" by the interview and that "recollections may vary".
