Meghan Markle marrying Prince Harry ‘made the UK BETTER’ - GB News guests clash in furious row over docuseries
Rafe Heydel-Mankoo said that Meghan Markle was the 'Yoko Ono of the Royal Family'
GB News guests have clashed in a furious row over the Harry & Meghan Netflix documentary.
Details about the Royal Family and alleged racism and harassment from the British press were revealed in the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s six-part docuseries on Netflix.
Meghan Markle told of finding the formality of royal life “surprising”, while Prince Harry said his family’s view of his wife were “clouded” by her being an American actress.
Elsewhere, Harry said: “Some of the members of the family were like ‘My wife had to go through that, so why should your girlfriend be treated any differently?’ ‘Why should you get special treatment?’ ‘Why should she be protected?’
“And I said ‘the difference here is the race element’.”
Precious Muir and Rafe Heydel-Mankoo joined Mark Dolan on GB News to react to the claims.
Ms Muir said: “I mean, to be honest, to be a woman who's come into a society where they have not accepted her from the beginning, because they didn't give her the tools to be able to manage the things that she had to attend. She wasn't ready for this, and she did not understand. She was not ready for this.

She later continued: “She doesn't cry racism. She is of colour. She can't change that. She wakes up and she is of colour. She can't play the race card.
“You know what colour she is. She can't deny who she is.
“They treat her differently than the others, if Harry had married a white woman, had white children, do you know what the UK would look like right now?
“Things have progressed in this country for the better. I'm telling you, MegHan actually marrying Harry has made the UK better. It has.
“As a woman, you would never understand, what it feels like to never be accepted in society in certain ways of life in the UK.
“And the fact that you are now seeing a Meghan Markle in the Royal Family has changed history beyond what you can understand.”
Responding, Mr, Heydel-Mankoo said: “I’m telling you, as a child of the Empire, I was the biggest supporter of Megan. I called her the ‘Heineken princess’, able to reach parts of the Commonwealth other princesses couldn't reach.
“Unfortunately, ever since then, we've realised that actually, there was an ulterior motive to her becoming a princess that she wasn't ready to compromise on any issues.
“She wanted to have her cake and eat it, too. We had that terrific trio, you know, of Harry and Kate and William. And the idea was, we got a fab for the new Beatles there.
“She's the Yoko Ono of the Royal Family now.”
