The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have faced criticism after sharing their shocking reasons for departing the Royal Family last year in a bombshell interview. Meghan told Oprah Winfrey in March she felt suicidal as a royal and wasn’t offered help when she asked, before suggesting her son Archie wasn’t given a royal title because of his skin colour – which Buckingham Palace has denied. Harry also said in the same interview he felt “trapped” and last week made another dig at the royals by appearing to criticise the Queen and Prince Charles’ parenting styles on US podcast Armchair Expert.
Now the couple have hit the headlines over in Australia during an episode of comedy show Have You Been Paying Attention? on Monday night.
Host Tom Gleisner asked the panel to name the first TV show that Meghan appeared on following the bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Comedian Tim McDonald, who was first to ring his buzzer, said: “Was it… Better Homewreckers and Gardens?”
He had made a reference to popular Australian show Better Homes and Gardens, which the left the audience in stitches of laughter.
However, host Tom quickly replied: “That is… very unkind. She cops a lot on this show!”
Fellow comedian Sam Pang then caused further laughter as she quipped: “Family Feud.”
Tom then explained the answer was that Meghan had actually appeared on a fundraiser programme called Vax Live.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex co-chaired the charity concert, which raised a staggering $382million in donations.
Australian Nine’s Today show host Karl Stefanovic also ripped into Harry’s recent interview on the Armchair Expert podcast after he accused his father of passing “genetic pain” onto him.
Mr Stefanovic told Harry to stop “whining about his childhood”, which he said was full of luxury and privilege.
He said: “I’m just saying it’s ridiculous how he keeps whining about his childhood. He grew up in privilege – in a palace.
“I mean, just give it a rest, bro.”

He later had a go at Harry again on the show, as he said he should follow his grandmother the Queen’s example by “just getting on with it”.
He said: “The guy doesn’t need to go from his [Californian] mansion and start rabbiting on about how hard life is when he has got enormous privilege, and to keep bagging his family.
“Just get on with it. Just get on with it. Take a lesson out of the Queen’s book and just get on with it. Carry on.
“I’m not saying anything more about that… it’s really riled me.”
Last week, Harry said of Charles: “He’s treated me the way he was treated, so how can I change that for my own kids?
“There is no blame. I don’t think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anybody, but certainly when it comes to parenting, if I’ve experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father or my parents had suffered, I’m going to make sure I break that cycle so that I don’t pass it on, basically.
“It’s a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway so we as parents should be doing the most we can to try and say ‘you know what, that happened to me, I’m going to make sure that doesn’t happen to you’.
“It’s hard to do but for me it comes down to awareness. I never saw it, I never knew about it, and then suddenly I started to piece it together and go ‘OK, so this is where he went to school, this is what happened, I know this about his life, I also know that is connected to his parents so that means he’s treated me the way he was treated, so how can I change that for my own kids?’

However, Harry and Meghan have received some support in Australia from Today Extra host David Campbell, who said he was proudly “pro-Harry” for talking publicly about mental health.
He also defended his upbringing as he said: “He can’t choose this! He’s not going to go live in a block of flats in Eastgardens.”
It comes after Harry was seen in a new advert this week for his upcoming US show The Me You Can’t See, which he worked on with Oprah Winfrey.
In the trailer, he said: “To make that decision to receive help is not a sign of weakness. In today’s world more than ever, it is a sign of strength.”
The clip also showed archive footage of Harry stood next to his father Prince Charles at his mother Princess Diana’s funeral in 1997.
A voiceover then said: “Treating people with dignity is the first act.”
Meghan is also in the trailer, as she was seen leaning over her husband smiling while wearing a T-shirt featuring the logo “Raising the future”.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are also preparing to celebrate their third wedding anniversary tomorrow.
