Meghan Markle latest news – Prince Harry slammed AGAIN as dad Thomas teases him as ‘full carrot’ after Invictus PR stunt


‘My pal Prince Harry has DE-FRIENDED me for jokingly calling him Ginger Nuts’

JACK Whitehall says he is “banned” from seeing his old pal Prince Harry after making a cheeky gag about him.

The comedian, 33, claims a tongue-in-cheek joke at the Royal Variety Show in 2015 where he called Harry ”Ginger Nuts” is the reason he’s been blacklisted.

Jack revealed the news this week at The London Palladium as part of his How To Survive The Summer Holidays tour alongside his mum Hilary, 59, and dad Michael, 81.

Mocking the ex-royal and his wife Meghan Markle, Michael teased: “Jack I read a book recently and it changed my life and I put this book down and I thought I must become a writer myself. This book is called The Bench and it’s written by Meghan Markle.”

Upon its release in June last year, the book sold just 3,212 copies with the former Suits actress claiming the book “began as a love letter to my husband and son”.

In a dig at the Prince – who insiders say is attending the Oscars in Los Angeles this weekend after being asked to present the Best Picture Award – he added of the children’s book: “She presumably wrote it for Harry.”

Putting on a mock patronising voice, Michael continued: “Yes darling just read it OK. There are only three lines per page Harry… Harry it’s all right.”

Taking yet another swipe, Michael added: “That is your friend Harry. Except you are not allowed to see him anymore. You have banned… been ostracised from the Sussexes.”

Smirking, Jack replied: “I think I have been banned because I called him ‘Ginger Nuts’ at the Royal Variety”.
