The Project's Lisa Wilkinson takes aim at 'ridiculous' Sussex gripe

Lisa Wilkinson has once again taken aim at the royal family, just days after she pointed out a telling detail in the Windsor’s public response to the arrival of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's second child, daughter Lili.

Speaking on Thursday night’s episode of The Project, Lisa called a recent story around the Sussexes ‘ridiculous’.

It came after a segment was aired about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle clashing with the BBC over the version of events that led to the naming of their daughter, Lilibet.

A BBC story claimed the Queen had not been asked about naming their baby Lilibet, which was the monarch's childhood family nickname.


However, a spokeswoman for the couple said their daughter's name was mentioned in a conversation with the Queen.

Last night, Lisa Wilkinson seemed to have had enough of the chat about the Sussexes, saying: “Who knows what the truth is in this story? All I do know is how much Prince Andrew would be loving the oxygen this ridiculous story is taking up right now.”

Prince Andrew has made headlines over the past year over his alleged friendship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

It’s not the first time Lisa has made a comment about the arrival of baby Lili, taking to her Twitter account to make a point in the wording of the Twitter messages from the likes of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles, Prince William and Kate Middleton and the Queen following Lili’s birth.

Harry's father and brother opted against using the Sussex's royal titles in their tweets unlike his grandmother, the Queen.

"Can't help noticing that neither the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, nor Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, used Harry and Meghan’s royal titles in the messages of congrats on the birth of baby Lilibet," Lisa wrote.

"The Queen - after whom the baby is named - was the only one that did," she added.
