The Project hosts are not scared to get a little spicy when it comes to commenting on the day's news, and last night Lisa Wilkinson proved that no one is safe from the show's razor-sharp takes, not even Harry and Meghan after revealing their baby news.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they will be welcoming baby number two this year and when the news hit The Project screen, all one host could think about was baby names, and not very appropriate ones at that.

“She looks very pregnant," the host observed. "That’s obviously happened very, very quickly."

The benign comment was swiftly followed by speculation about what the baby brother or sister of Archie might be named.

"What do you think the chances are of that kid being called Andrew?” Lisa asked co-host Jan Fran.


Prince Andrew, who will be the baby's great uncle, has famously been asked to testify in the Jefferey Epstein sex trafficking court case, and has faced allegations of sexual assault.

The Duke of York denied all the allegations but has been stepped down from royal duties in the wake of the international investigation.

In light of the scandal around the Prince, Jan Fran responded that the chances seemed 'slim to none'.

"I'm thinking minus zero," Lisa agreed.

The very pointy commentary comes as Harry and Meghan announce they will sit down for a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.

In the interview, the couple, who have not openly discussed their experience of leaving the royal family directly so far, are set to open up on everything from their notorious 'Megxit' to their pregnancy experience and their new life in LA.

The interview will be a 90-minute special to air within the month on US channel CBS.

In an announcement, the network revealed the 'intimate' chat will air on March 7.

“Winfrey will speak with Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, in a wide-ranging interview, covering everything from stepping into life as a royal, marriage, motherhood, philanthropic work, to how she is handling life under intense public pressure,” the statement from CBS revealed on Tuesday.

“Later, the two are joined by Prince Harry as they speak about their move to the United States and their future hopes and dreams for their expanding family.”
