Prince Charles has been warned that if he carries on giving his personal views on topics like Rwanda “ then “he’ll be out”.

Charles is reported to have described the Government's Rwanda plan, designed to curb the migrant crisis in the English Channel, as "appalling."

But journalist Andrew Pierce has hit back at his reported comments, saying “he’s got to be discreet”.

Speaking on GB News’ Breakfast with Eamonn and Isabel, Mr Pierce said: “How dare he?

“I get that it annoys politicians, but we take Prince Charles more seriously on this.

“If he said, by the way I have opened up one of my many, many residences to five families crossing the Channel, but he hasn’t, and he’s got a lot of property.

“The fact is he can have his views, judges aren’t allowed to say this sort of things, they aren’t allowed to say things like this.

“He’s in that category where he’s got to be discreet.

“If he carries on like this when he's King, he'll be out.”

The first flight to Rwanda, which is set to take place tomorrow, faces a late legal challenge.

A High Court judge ruled on Friday that the first flight to the east African country could go ahead, but this is set to be challenged in the Court of Appeal.

While a second case is due to be heard in the High Court today.
