Good Morning Britain viewers snapped their fingers in appreciation after she defended Prince Harry’s popularity.
The Duke of Sussex will appear at London’s High Court as part of a case involving himself and 100 other celebrities against Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN), now owned by Reach Plc.
Harry is embroiled in a bitter row with the press amid the release of his Netflix documentary Spare, in which he accuses other senior royals of colluding with the tabloids.
On Monday’s instalment of the morning programme, Royal biographer Angela Levin and former BBC journalist Tom Bower gave a critical perspective of Harry’s involvement in the case.
After Levin branded Harry as a ‘moaning, groaning individual,’ Susanna responded: ‘I’m not sure having 16 bathrooms lessens his grievance if he feels he has been hard done by.
‘We know that Prince Harry, putting it mildly, does not like how he’s been treated by the British press.
‘This has got nothing to do with Meghan [Markle].’
Viewers praised Susanna for coming to Harry’s defence, with one person writing: ‘Well done susana ried for telling these 2 they are making money by slating harry & meghan!!’
Another added: ‘You’re still popular with me, Prince Harry! I’m glad @susannareid100 is reminding these biographers that he is still well loved. ‘You criticise Harry and Meghan for being negative but you sit here making your names talking badly of them’ YES Susanna!!!’
Last month the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were involved in a ‘near catastrophic’ chase by paparazzi on Tuesday night in New York, which was said to last over two hours.
A spokesperson said: ‘This relentless pursuit, lasting over two hours, resulted in multiple near collisions involving other drivers on the road, pedestrians and two NYPD (New York Police Department) officers.’
They added: ‘Despite being confronted by uniformed police multiple times, the paparazzi’s cars continued their pursuit in trying to follow the Sussexes and Doria to the private residence they were staying at.
‘Traffic violations by the drivers include driving on a sidewalk, going through red lights, reversing down a one way street, driving while photographing and illegally blocking a moving vehicle.
‘While being a public figure comes with a level of interest from the public, it should never come at the cost of anyone’s safety.’
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
