The hosts on "Fox & Friends" Monday morning discussed Oprah's bombshell interview with the Duchess of Sussex, Megan Markle and the Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, by ignoring the heart-wrenching accusations of racism, revelation of mental health issues, and deep emotional pain the couple say they have experienced because of the British Monarchy.

Co-host Brian Kilmeade attacked the couple, saying "it's kind of interesting they want to be out of the spotlight, they want their lives back, yet they do James Corden's show, they do Oprah, and they've got this big podcast deal and Netflix deal."

But it was co-host Ainsley Earhardt who managed to boil everything down to money.

"I'll just say if I got a castle, and I got the jewels and a crown, I wouldn't be leaving! I would not leave!"


On social media many were furious at the "tone deaf" attitude and "white privilege" the co-hosts displayed.
