Karl Stefanovic mocks Meghan Markle for acting like the ‘first mum ever’ after talking about her daughter Lilibet’s teething troubles in Ellen interview and says ‘her just being on TV is dumping on the royals’

Meghan Markle copped a roasting on Australia’s Today show on Friday after her latest TV interview with Ellen DeGeneres.

Host Karl Stefanovic said the Duchess of Sussex was acting like she was ‘the first mum ever’ when she spoke about her five-month-old daughter Lilibet’s teething troubles.

Co-anchor Allison Langdon scolded him for being so insensitive, saying ‘it is important stuff’ for mothers when their children are teething.

Ouch! Meghan Markle copped a roasting on Australia’s Today show on Friday after her latest TV interview with Ellen DeGeneres

After playing a clip from the Ellen interview, Stefanovic sarcastically gave the thumbs-up and said: ‘It’s like she’s the first mum ever!’

Father-of-four Stefanovic then suggested things weren’t too hard for Meghan and Prince Harry, who only have two children, Lilibet and two-year-old Archie.

Today’s entertainment correspondent Sam Rubin also pointed out she likely has assistants helping with the kids at her $14million Montecito mansion.

Not fans: The outspoken presenter went on to say that even though Meghan didn’t drop any ‘truth bombs’ about Harry’s family on this occasion, her appearance on the Ellen Show was still an insult to the royals after her infamous tell-all with Oprah Winfrey in March

Stefanovic went on to say that even though Meghan didn’t drop any ‘truth bombs’ about Harry’s family on this occasion, her appearance on the Ellen Show was still an insult to the royals after her infamous tell-all with Oprah Winfrey in March. 

‘Look, it was nice to see she wasn’t dumping on the royals. It was nice to get an insight into her life at home,’ Langdon said in defence of Meghan.

‘Even just by being there she is dumping on the royals,’ snapped Stefanovic, who has sided with the Firm throughout the Megxit saga.

‘Anyway, I like her, I’m turning the corner,’ he added sarcastically.

Earlier in the show, Stefanovic, 47, had thrown viewers a curveball by saying he’d ‘come full circle’ after seeing a ‘new side’ to Meghan in her latest interview – only for Langdon, 42, to say he was talking ‘bollocks’.

The segment began with Nine’s U.S. correspondent Alison Piotrowski recapping Meghan’s chat with Ellen, in which she discussed her early acting career, family life and friendship with Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank.

Stefanovic said afterwards with mock sincerity: ‘Oh, I look forward to seeing what else happens in that interview with Ellen coming up in the next hour.

‘I’ve come full circle. I think this side of her is a very different side, it’s a really great side. She’s showing a bit more of herself and showing us a bit more of the relationship with Harry, and I think it’s wonderful.

‘I’ve come full, full circle on Meghan Markle.’

She’s not buying it! Earlier in the show, Stefanovic, 47, had thrown viewers a curveball by saying he’d ‘come full circle’ after seeing a ‘new side’ to Meghan in her latest interview – only for Langdon, 42, to say he was talking ‘bollocks’

A confused Langdon replied: ‘That is proper bollocks! That is a big fat lie what you just said.’

Stefanovic didn’t even attempt to keep up the charade, replying dryly: ‘Yeah.’

The Duchess of Sussex told Ellen she and Harry were ‘happy’ in California as she spoke about her daughter Lilibet’s teething troubles during her TV interview.

She appeared on The Ellen Show on Thursday, eight months after the former Suits star’s controversial sit-down with Oprah Winfrey which left the Royal Family in crisis.

DeGeneres, a friend of the couple who lives near them in the celebrity enclave of Montecito, asked what Harry loves about California.

Megan replied: ‘We’re just happy.’

DeGeneres said of the Sussexes’ five-month-old daughter: ‘Lili’s now teething.’

Meghan put her hands to her mouth and said, ‘Anything to relieve that,’ to which the talk show host quipped: ‘Tequila, anything.’

Meghan replied: ‘That’s Auntie Ellen for you.’

Elsewhere, she discussed going incognito with Harry on Halloween for a night out in Toronto with Eugenie and Jack, just before news of their relationship broke.

She also promoted her children’s book The Bench.
