GB News’ Kirsty Gallagher rolls eyes as Harry and Meghan’s Afghan message mocked

Kirsty Gallagher was left rolling her eyes when her GB News co-host Simon McCoy mocked Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's response to the Afghanistan crisis.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex wrote a statement about the Taliban's takeover as well as the killer earthquake in Haiti and the ongoing Covid pandemic.

Writing about the situation in Afghanistan, they said they were "speechless", which drew some harsh criticism.

Gallacher introduced the news segment and said: "Now, Harry and Meghan have broken their silence to say they are speechless about the situation in Afghanistan."

Simon McCoy then interrupted her by exploding with laughter, prompting the presenter to roll her eyes at his outburst.

He said: "Sorry, only they would break their silence to tell us they are speechless."

In their statement on Archewell, Harry and Meghan said: "As we all feel the many layers of pain due to the situation in Afghanistan, we are left speechless.

"As we all watch the growing humanitarian disaster in Haiti, and the threat of it worsening after last weekend’s earthquake, we are left heartbroken.

"And as we all witness the continuing global health crisis, exacerbated by new variants and constant misinformation, we are left scared."

The couple then asked people to join them in supporting organisations doing "critical work" for humanitarian causes.

Gallacher then introduced Prince Harry's former biographer, Angela Levin, who pointed out that Harry spent two tours in Afghanistan.

McCoy said: "Angela, sorry but Prince Harry obviously knows better than most of us what’s gone on, what’s at stake and what the risks are but it’s a bit rich from the Duke and Duchess of Montecito to be telling us the world is in a mess."

The author of Harry: Conversations with the Prince, replied: "Well yes, I wrote his biography a few years ago and actually he talked endlessly about Afghanistan and how he had to fight to get there and the front line."
