Lady Colin Campbell has said the apparent booing which Meghan Markle and Prince Harry received at last week's National Television Awards was "very funny".
The couple were met with a jaw-dropping reception when their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey was booed by the the audience at the NTAs.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's interview was featured in a highlights moment documenting several television moments over the past 12 months.
As Sir Trevor McDonald introduced a video montage, the former senior working royals appeared on the big screen and the mood of the room suddenly changed.
Many of the audience at London's O2 Arena suddenly booed, expressing their frustration at the couple.
Other clips included coverage of the ongoing pandemic and the heartbreaking funeral of the late Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
Now, Lady Colin Campbell, 72, an outspoken critic of the former Suits actress and military serviceman, has shared her thoughts on the moment.
The aristocrat – whose real name is Georgia Arianna – opened up, saying: "I think it's very funny."
Lady C, who appeared on I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, continued: "It shows that the entertainment industry and even the British pseudo-establishment or, to put it another way, the British entertainment and media establishments, well, we know what they thought of Meghan and Harry because they booed, [it's] very interesting."
She continued: "Scabies [Lady C's nickname for royal reported Omid Scobie] can spin all he wants, he can spin like a dog but it doesn't alter the fact that anybody who is rational and isn't reading pap and thinking it is the truth is going to actually be able to see that Meghan and Harry have really and truly blotted their copy.
"I have to tell you, I am actually pleased that they were booed because maybe, maybe they will take a hint and learn a lesson, maybe their behaviour will improve, maybe, let's see, I hope, of course, I have no expectations whatsoever."
Harry and Meghan have remained silent on the reported incident but it was recently announced that they had made The Times 100 list of influential people.
The parents-of-two featured on the prestigious list among stars such as footballer Marcus Rashford, singer Dua Lipa and TikTok's Charlie D'Amelio.
Describing the couple, the list said: "In a world where everyone has an opinion about people they don't know, the Duke and Duchess have compassion for the people they don’t know.
"They don't just opine. They run toward the struggle."
