An Australian Liberal senator has unleashed a brutal attack on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, saying she’s sick of the pair and labelling them ‘awful, revolting people.’
Hollie Hughes didn’t hold back as she weighed in on ongoing tensions between the royals following the death of Queen Elizabeth II 10 days ago, aged 96.
As billions around the world prepare for the Queen’s funeral within hours, all eyes will be on the royals after it was revealed Prince Harry and Meghan were ‘uninvited’ to a state reception for world leaders held at Buckingham Palace on Sunday.
The couple were reportedly ‘baffled’ by the decision to exclude the pair from the event only for ‘working royals.
But Sky News host Chris Smith believes Harry and Meghan shouldn’t be baffled as they had put themselves in that situation, prompting Senator Hughes to launch into an extraordinary tirade.
She blamed Meghan for the couple’s estrangement from the royal family and believes Prince Harry will live to regret it one day.

‘I think he’s made an awful error and I think she’s had a terrible influence over him,’ she said on Monday afternoon.
‘She’s just a horrible human.
‘It’s absolutely disgraceful.
‘I don’t know what’s happening with the book he done.
‘Her podcasts apparently they’re going through them now trying to take out parts where she said not particularly kind things about the Queen.
‘They’re awful, revolting, revolting people and I absolutely think they shouldn’t be invited to this and I hope they’re not invited to a lot of other things.’
Senator Hughes believes Prince Harry will one day regret the ‘awful mistake’ of marrying Meghan Markle and cutting off ties with the crown.

‘I’m sick of both of them,’ Senator Hughes said.
‘I sort of long for the day I hope Harry rolls over and takes one look and thinks ‘what have I done’ and comes to his senses and moves back across the pond.’
Senator Hughes is surprised at the amount of invites Duke and Duchess of Sussex have got to official events in the wake of the Queen’s death.
‘They wanted a private life, they no longer wanted to be part of the royal family in the sense they were,’ she said.
‘They’ve moved themselves across to the US and taken every opportunity they can to take a swipe at the Queen but also the entire monarch and the royal family and the role it plays.’
‘They wanted a lower profile, they didn’t want this sort of life for their children. They seem upset their children might not get the HRH, which is a little bit strange to me.’
Commentator Caroline di Russo agreed.
The senator believes Prince Harry, pictured with Meghan Markle (left) and the late Queen (right) will one day regret some of the decisions he’s made in recent years.
‘When they decided they didn’t want to be senior royals, they wanted their privacy and they wanted their independence, well there are consequences,’ she said.
‘We’ve been hearing this sniping of them not getting exactly what they want, well you didn’t want the duty, you didn’t want the responsibility, well you don’t get the other stuff that comes with it.’
Senator Hughes is no stranger to controversy.
She was previously subjected to a vile slur in Parliament when Greens Senator Lidia Thorpe yelled at her across the chamber, ‘at least I keep my legs shut’.
