Lady Colin-Campbell, 70, was called "patronising" by Phillip when the interview came to an end, but it's no surprise considering the way she spoke to the show's presenters.

Phil asked if it was difficult that the book – called Meghan and Harry: The Real Story – was “unverified” by the royals, to which the interviewee came back to scold the presenter telling him that biographies are never written by someone close to the subject.

As well as this, at one point during the interview, Lady C suggested she doesn’t leak stories to the press, and Phillip labelled her a “gossip”, which wasn't met well.

When Holly and Phil suggested she pay attention to the former royals’ mental health, Lady C replied: “No, we cannot be mentally healthy if you don’t have integrity or stand up for the truth.”

The pair were visibly confused and asked for clarification on her point, to which she replied implying the presenters had no integrity.

When signing off the interview, Phillip ended with: “It’s been fascinating, if a little patronising. Thank you for joining us today.”

The author claims in the book Meghan orchestrated their move to the United States to launch her political career – with the idea to run for President.
