The panel had varying opinions on the matter and the intense criticism former Suits actress Meghan has faced, particularly since becoming a mother.
Good Morning Britain star Piers Morgan, 54, has hit out at the Duchess of Sussex on several occasions and Denise warned the presenter to “back off”.
Janet Street-Porter began: “I don’t think it’s wrong to criticise the royal family. I think it’s a sign of a normal society.”
But Denise, 61, added: “I do think there’s a way of criticising without being mean and bullish.
“As well as being a new princess, she’s just had a baby.”
Denise continued: “People should back off the girl a bit. It’s annoying when people, like Nigel Farage and Piers Morgan are being nasty because she wouldn’t go back to a pub with him.”
The panellist was referring to comments made by Piers who insisted Meghan “ghosted” him once she met Prince Harry.
Speaking on The Late Late Show in September last year of their meeting in his local pub, Piers said: “I put her in the cab and it turned out to be a cab that took her to a party where she met Prince Harry.
“The next night they had a solo dinner together and that was the last I ever heard from Meghan Markle. And I never heard from her again. She ghosted me. Meghan Markle ghosted me.
Fellow panellist Brenda Edwards, 45, also defended Meghan from critics.
She sighed: “With the Meghan thing, I’m kind of tired of somebody saying something negative. Let her live her life and be a mum.”
