Bill Turner halts Royal debate on GMB as it ‘turns into attack on Meghan Markle’

Bill Turner halted a Royal debate on Good Morning Britain this morning as the panel discussed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's latest statement.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have faced criticism over the weekend after they issued a statement showing their apparent anger at not being allowed to use the term Sussex Royal as a trademark outside of the UK.

In the lengthy 1,114-page statement which the couple released on Friday they outlined the new system they will be adopting from April after they made the decision to end their Royal careers.

But there has been a mixed reaction after they confirmed they will not be using the Sussex Royal brand while insisting neither the Queen nor the rest of the family has exclusive use of the term "royal."

Speaking on GMB, Bill Turner, who is filling in for Piers Morgan while he is on holiday, returned to co-host with Susanna Reid as they were joined on the panel by writer Tom Bower.

Kicking off the debate, an annoyed Susanna shared her thoughts on the negative reaction, she said: "Why is it always so negative? Everything talked about Meghan is so negative?"

Tom replied: "Because of the hypocrisy."
