Later on, Ofcom was hit with a total of 160 complaints over the episode and when Denise found out, she wasn’t happy and even went on social media to tell everyone just that.

In her post about the incident, she included a photo of Meghan that’s believed to have been taken on her trip to Nigeria.

Denise wrote about the former actor in the accompanying caption: “[Meghan] has been a spokeswoman for women of colour and gender equality since she was 11 yrs old. She has held a place on the world stage for years before she met Harry as a UN women’s advocate.”

She continued: “I am appalled that this woman is abused and berated by the public and media on a daily basis. Not many people could mentally cope with the hate she contends with.

“No wonder her husband took her away and despite everything they are thriving. Their reception in Nigeria has been wonderful to see.”

Denise concluded the post by telling her followers on the social media platform recently: “Last week I defended them against one of their detractors on tv and received 103 complaints from Ofcom!!! Good. Also utterly pathetic.”

During the episode in question, Dickie said: “[Prince] Harry has been rubbishing the family since he walked out in 2020.” He went on to mention the memoir Spare, released last year, and various TV interviews.

Denise questioned: “Do you not think there is a reason why [he] did such a thing?”

Denise continued to say: “Then he has a wife who is continually trashed by the media, including your good self, if I may say – when she is on a world stage, doing a lot of good for a lot of people.”

Dickie, as previously reported, said that he was “not going to argue” with her and went on to suggest that Denise that she had read “too many tabloid stories”.

But Denise retorted with the fact that she reads a lot and finished with: “it’s a disgrace, the way she’s [Meghan] treated.”
