EAMONN HOLMES has waded into the discussion surrounding Meghan Markle and Prince Harry with a blistering attack on the Duchess of Sussex.
The 60-year-old branded Markle “weak” and “manipulative” during his drivetime show on TalkRadio.
Holmes’ criticism comes in the wake of the announcement that Harry and Megham would be stepping down from their roles as senior royals.
The couple are planning on splitting their time between the UK and North America while raising their son Archie and working to become “financially independent”.
Holmes is among those to criticise the move and Markle in particular.
The This Morning presenter told listeners Americans would “all love this and they’ll be gormlessly looking at her, and she is playing the role of her life”.
He went on to launch a blistering attack on the 38-year-old.
Holmes said: “I just find her incredibly irritating. I’ve never met her, but I look at her and think ‘I don’t think I’d like you in real life’. You’re just that awful, woke, weak, manipulative, spoilt…”
“What I have met is lots of people in TV series and movie stars and whatever from America, who are mollycoddled beyond people with PR people around them.”
“And maybe she’s just somewhat spoilt,” he added “They may well both be somewhat damaged, but she’s a manipulator, she’s a controller, mark my words.”

Holmes’ criticism was echoed by Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan who previously laid into Markle saying "she ditched her family, ditched her Dad, ditched most of her old friends, split Harry from William & has now split him from the Royal Family".
He added that Princess Diana "would be furious that Harry had been so manipulated".
"She's breaking up our royal family after fleecing the public purse,” he added.
"As a taxpayer, and a Monarchist, I'm entitled to take a rather dim view of this."
