Eamonn Holmes blasts ‘disturbing’ Meghan over ‘confusing’ charity speech ‘Doesn’t get it’ | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV

GB News hosts Eamonn Homes and Isabel Webster were joined by Kinsey Schofield to discuss Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s return to the UK. On Monday evening they attended the One Young World summit in Manchester where Meghan gave a key-note speech for the charity she fronts. However, Eamonn was left bewildered after guests were paying £1,000 a day to attend the summit and slammed Meghan’s “disturbing” choice to wear an expensive suit.

Eamonn asked: “The thing that is really disturbing to me, very confusing and I have just read many different reports on this.

“So she is fronting a charity, something about equality and poverty and she just doesn’t get it, she is in a £2,500 trouser suit as a result of that.

“Now equality and poverty and leveling up and just I hear these reports all the time, but I just want to know what this charity is?

“Because people attending, the One Young World summit, are paying £1,000 a day, it couldn’t be £1,000 a day, it must be for three days or so.

“But £1,000 to attend, yes it is £1,000 to attend a three-day event which does not include the cost of traveling to Manchester or accommodation.

“So who is attending this? By the time you pay for travel and accommodation, what the heck is this charity? I really genuinely am missing the whole point of where the poverty and where the equality front is in all of this.”

Kinsey explained: “I have not confirmed it yet but circulating on social media there was a casting call for seat fillers.

“So we will have to see if that is true or not because I can tell you right now I don’t have £1,000 to sit in a seat and see them speak.”

Kicking off her seven-minute speech at the summit, Meghan explained: “It’s very nice to be back in the UK.

“And it is very nice to be back with all of you at One Young World. I was like each of you, young, ambitious, advocating for the things I deeply believed in.

“I look around and wonder how on earth did I get here? I was at the dinner for the counselors and there I was, a girl from Suits.

“I was surrounded by world leaders, humanitarians, Prime Ministers and activists that I had a such deep respect for.

“I even saved my little paper place card that said my name on it. Proof that I was there and proof that I belonged.”

After Manchester, the couple will travel to Germany for the one-year official countdown to the 2023 Invictus Games.

Following their visit to Germany, the Sussexes will travel back to London where on September 8, Meghan and Harry will be in attendance at the WellChild Awards.

Breakfast with Eamonn and Isabel airs Monday-Thursday from 6am on GB News.
