Meghan Markle mocked for starting ‘family feud’ in ‘unkind’ Aussie segment

Meghan Markle has been brutally mocked by a group of Australian comedians.

The Duchess of Sussex came in for some serious stick in a segment on the Have You Been Paying Attention? comedy show.

The show, akin to the UK’s Mock The Week, saw comedians Sam Pang and Tim McDonald stick the knife in with some harsh responses to a question about Meghan.

A panel of comedians was asked by quizmaster Tom Glesiner to name the first TV show the Duchess made an appearance on following her and her husband Prince Harry’s exclusive bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Tim rang his buzzer first and quickly joked: “Was it… Better Homewreckers and Gardens?”, referencing the claims which rocked the Royal Family.

And it wasn’t long before his fellow panellists broke into fits of laughter at Tim’s witty remark.

Host Tom responded with a smirk: “That is… very unkind. She [Meghan] cops a lot on this show.”

But not finished with Sam slammed his own buzzer and joked: “Megxit palaver: ‘Family Feud.”

Despite the pair’s brutal humour, Meghan’s first TV appearance was actually for the charity Global Citizen Vax Live.

The Duchess co-chaired the event alongside her husband, helping to raise a staggering $302million (£212m).

Meghan appeared in a pre-recorded message and voiced her opinion on how women had been disproportionately impacted by the coronavirus pandemic over the past year and a half.

In the clip she said: “The past year has been defined by communities coming together tirelessly and heroically to tackle Covid-19.

“We’ve gathered tonight because the road ahead is getting brighter, but it’s going to take every one of us to find our way forward.

“As campaign chairs of Vax Live, my husband and I believe it’s critical that our recovery prioritises the health, safety and success of everyone – and particularly women, who have been disproportionately affected by this pandemic.”

The Duchess added: “Women, and especially women of colour, have seen a generation of economic gain wiped out.

“Since the pandemic began, nearly 5.5 million women have lost work in the US, and 47 million more women around the world are expected to slip into extreme poverty.”

“My husband and I are thrilled to soon be welcoming a daughter. ‘It’s a feeling of joy we share with millions of other families around the world.

“When we think of her, we think of all the young women and girls around the globe who must be given the ability and the support to lead us forward.”
