“She tried to avoid them, didn’t she?” A tragic life, ”she added.
Morgan then asked: “What do you think of what’s going on now with the British royal family, with Meghan, Harry, the feud with William, Charles? “
Collins mimed a zipper closing on his lips. “My lips are sealed on this subject,” she said.
“I just don’t want to go on national television and say what I think about Meghan and Harry, because look what happened to you,” she joked.
Morgan laughed. “Well, exactly, thank you! ” he said.
