GMB's Susanna Reid makes brutal 'private jets' dig at Meghan Markle ahead of Ellen DeGeneres interview

GOOD Morning Britain's Susanna Reid today made a brutal "private jets" dig at Meghan Markle ahead of her Ellen DeGeneres interview.

The Duchess of Sussex, 40, was yesterday seen chatting with US talk show host Ellen in an interview due to be aired in full later today.

Susanna, 50, was keen to address the news that the former Suits actress would be making an appearance on the show.

"Now, let's turn our attention to another chat show – and that is the Ellen Show," Susanna began. "Meghan has made an appearance."

"The last time we saw Meghan on a chat show she was doing the big reveal on Oprah," Susanna continued, as co-host Ben Shephard chimed in: "That was a quiet affair, wasn't it?"

"Goodness me, she put a rocket under practically everything frankly, from the Royal family to this programme." Susanna scathingly responded.

The mother-of-three then introduced a clip from the show, saying: "Well, shall we have a little listen to what Meghan says? They have released one clip.

"You would imagine that they would put out a clip perhaps about Harry, or perhaps her feelings about the Royal family, or perhaps about everything that has happened in the wake of that…

"But no, we go right back to her humble, hard-working roots. Let's have a look."

Susanna and Ben, 46, then viewed the clip from the upcoming interview, in which Meghan speaks about previously visiting the same set Ellen is filmed on to audition for acting roles.

She also talked about how she used to drive an old Ford Explorer, which had a key that often stopped working meaning she'd enter the car through the boot.

"The drive in today was very different," Meghan concluded to the talkshow host.

As the cameras panned back to the GMB studios Susanna scathed: "There we go – let's never mind the private jets."

Later speaking about Meghan's latest media chat, Susanna added: “I find it’s getting increasingly hard to defend.

“But their explanation is they didn’t want the kind of media coverage, the kind of endlessly critical media coverage, they were getting with the undertones that Meghan and Harry said there was around it.

"They wanted almost to take back control."

After then accidentally knocking over her water she told viewers: "I have just spilled an entire glass of water in my attempt to defend Meghan and her endless interviews as she argues for privacy."


Susanna's comments come after Piers Morgan sensationally stormed off and quit Good Morning Britain earlier this year during a heated debate about Meghan.

The former GMB host famously dismissed the legitimacy of the duchess' claims to Oprah that she suffered suicidal feelings – something Susanna was always quick to defend.

But last night Piers jokingly said he's "available" to interview Meghan – despite their ongoing rift.

Meanwhile, one royal expert last night warned the surprise interview "will spark dread" at the Palace following the chaotic aftermath of the Oprah fallout.

Royal biographer Angela Levin said: "I think the palace dread everything she says because she can be so rude.

"The interview with Oprah was bad timing. Prince Harry's grandfather was ill. It is all about what is good to her. She's ruthless and she thinks of herself first."
