Lorraine Kelly Shocks Viewers With Prince Andrew Comment Following Meghan Markle Discussion

Lorraine Kelly raised a few eyebrows this morning when she took aim at Prince Andrew at the end of her breakfast programme.

The 61-year-old, who hosts her titular ITV morning programme, had been discussing the bombshell interview between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Oprah Winfrey that had aired on British television last night.

But as her show was coming to an end, Lorraine made a pointed reference towards disgraced royal Prince Andrew - which you can watch below.

Speaking to viewers, the presenter said: "I guess the only person who might be thinking this is all okay is Prince Andrew, right?"

Lorraine's comments are in reference to furore that surrounded Queen Elizabeth II's third son, Prince Andrew, and the now infamous Newsnight interview that took place in 2019 in which he attempted to defend his relationship with sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

"Omg Lorraine Kelly outing Prince Andrew had made my morning!" wrote one laughing viewer.

"Lorraine Kelly just casually throwing a Prince Andrew comment as the titles roll was just," said another, before adding a 'perfect' emoji.

"RIP Prince Andrew who died via shots fired by Lorraine Kelly this morning," a third added jokingly.

"Did Lorraine Kelly just dig out Prince Andrew?" a fourth astounded viewer said.

The Oprah interview, which had peak audience viewing figures of 12.4 million when it aired on ITV last night, has caused a huge stir on British morning television.

Following controversial comments made from Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan on Monday morning show, where he said he "did not believe" Meghan Markle's assertions she was "suicidal" while a working member of the royal family, fellow host Alex Beresford called him out on his widely decried behaviour.

However, Piers was left furious that he was being "slammed" on his own show, and ended up storming off set at Alex's comments.

Alex has since written on Twitter: "I wish I had the privilege to sit on the fence. In order for me to do that I would have to strip myself of my identity and that's not something I can do. It's not any of our places to pick apart claims of racism in order to make us to feel more comfortable."
