Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were the hot topic of conversation on Sunday night as GB News kicked off it's debut show of Tonight With Dan Wootton.

The former Lorraine Showbiz Reporter chatted to Royal Editor Robert Jobson about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the shocking fall out with the palace over the naming of their baby daughter.

The controversial couple insist that a BBC report claiming they did not ask permission from Her Majesty The Queen to name their daughter Lilibet – the monarch's chidhood nickname – was not true.

However, Buckingham Palace have insisted to the BBC that this is not the case – though a phone call with The Queen and Harry did take place.

Giving his take on reports that The Queen and Buckingham Palace are no longer going to keep silent on incorrect reports, Robert said: "I think it is fair enough.

"If the queen is being bad mouthed then she had to speak back.

"They are bad mouthing the initiation she represents.

"I thin she had been treated badly and the Prince of Wales has too."

  • Princess Diana warned Prince William how to avoid the marriage pitfalls she suffered

He added: "On this one you have two people who seem to be misinterpreting what The Queen is saying."

Not stopping their, the editor, who works for London's Evening Standard insisted he thinks the BBC got the story right.

"When I checked with a source nothing had changed from when the BBC asked. They were sticking to their guns," he continued.

"It was right. I think Harry is basically put it to The Queen that this is what he is going to do and she said 'ok that is it'.

  • The Queen branded 'ruthless' for treatment of Camilla Parker Bowles after Diana's death

"Look, I think it's a very different thing when you approach you grandmother and you say you hope to call the child.. .

"There is nothing you could do."

The row is likely to do little to help build bridges between Buckingham Palace and Harry and Meghan.

In fact, Robert thinks that any reconciliation is a long way off.

"The problem they have had is that anytime they had had conversations it seems to be aired on US TV first," he added.

"Until there is trust I can't see how they can go forward."
