Author and socialite Lady Colin Campbell slammed the behaviour of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on their recent visit to the UK for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

In an exclusive interview with GB News presenter Dan Wootton, Lady C shared her thoughts on the recently released image of Lilibet on her first birthday.

When prompted by Dan as to whether or not the Sussexes need the monarchy more than the monarchy need them, Lady C replied: "That was always a fact."

Meghan and Harry flew across the Atlantic from their California home last week to partake in the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Celebrations.

The couple, accompanied by their two children, Archie and Lilibet, maintained a low public profile throughout the visit.

Appearing at the Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul's Cathedral on Friday, Meghan and Harry were roundly booed by royal onlookers.

And Lady C told Dan the couple were "spitting bricks because their brand has been irretrievably damaged" after the embarrassing boos.

Meghan and Harry were absent from Jubilee events that followed the service at St Paul's, confining themselves to Frogmore Cottage, their Windsor residence.

It comes after an image of the couple's daughter Lilibet was published yesterday, as she celebrated her first birthday over the weekend.

Close family and friends were invited to their Windsor residence, where a cake baked by the couples wedding baker Claire Ptak was also served.

The photograph of Lilibet shows her smiling and dressed in a pale blue frock with a white bow in her hair, and was captured by their photographer friend Misan Harriman, who attended the event.

Meghan and Harry were pictured arriving at a Californian airport on Sunday afternoon, following their trip to the UK.

Along with their children Archie and Lilibet, they flew out of Farnborough Airport at 1.30pm on Sunday an hour before the Jubilee Pageant began in central London.
