A CNN reporter was censured for making a “disrespectful” jibe at Prince William and Kate Middleton.
After referring to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle by name while dismissing Prince William and Kate Middleton as “the other two royals,” CNN is receiving harsh criticism.
Scott McLean made the error Saturday as the brothers and their wives rejoined to thank the throng who had arrived to show support and to observe the mountains of bouquets and balloons left by well-wishers. They were outside Windsor Castle.
He added that the first person to leave was Harry, followed by Meghan and the other two royals.
However, irritated viewers promptly criticised the rudeness on social media.
The agenda of CNN has been clear for months. For Harry and Meghan, they’re all in. Pathetic. The future king and queen are the “other two royals,” Daily Mail columnist Dan Wootton tweeted.
Another critic fumed, “The other two royals, being the heir to the throne and his bride the Princess of Wales, who will be Queen.”
Another just said, “Disrespectful.”
Additionally, the left-leaning network was criticised for its “biassed” reporting.
The other two royals,” the viewer remarked, “showing your apparent partiality there. “Whatever happened to objective reporting? Shocking.”
The walkabout was the first time the couples had been spotted together in public since Commonwealth Day on March 9.

Two days after he allegedly barred his difficult daughter-in-law from the queen’s deathbed and just hours after their father, King Charles III, was officially crowned as Great Britain’s new monarch during a rare meeting of the nation’s Accession Council, the family formed a united front.
Prince William is now the next in line to the throne following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II and Charles’ subsequent acclamation to the throne.
The new King gave his eldest son William and his wife Kate the titles of Prince and Princess of Wales on Friday as one of his first official acts as the new monarch. Charles and his late wife Diana previously held these titles.
The new Prince and Princess of Wales will, he predicted, “continue to inspire and lead our national dialogues, helping to bring the marginal to the centre ground where essential help can be delivered,” with Catherine (Kate) by his side.
