This Morning fans have described ITV guest Matthew Wright as a “coward” after the broadcaster launched a scathing attack on the Queen, telling viewers of the “plus” outspoken views. his peace”.
The former host of The Wright Stuff, 56, couldn’t hold back when discussing the upcoming book from a close aide to Queen Elizabeth with This Morning hosts Josie Gibson and Vernon Kay, also like journalist Camilla Tominey.
When Matthew heard that Queen’s loyal aide Angela Kelly would be re-publishing her book, The Other Side of the Coin: The Queen, The Dresser, and the Wardrobe, he wasn’t impressed.
The book will be re-released with an additional segment on how the Royals are dealing with the lockdown as well as preparing for the Queen’s Platinum Year celebrations in June.
Matthew was particularly interested in the 95-year-old king’s shoes being chiseled by a tailor to make them more comfortable.
“We pay someone to walk a mile in the Queen’s shoes to make her feet more comfortable, while they languish in seven palaces filled with thousands of Ukrainians looking for a home,” he said.
“I’m sorry, I’m not some kind of feudal serf who’ll go away with a hat on. I am a republican and the Queen is of the opinion that someone must replace her. “
Guest Camilla then cut off a request for Matthew to “take it easy,” adding: “You’re making us even more depressed than we ever were.”
Matthew then exclaims: “Seven places! Seven! How many do you need?”
Camilla replied: “She works well after retirement, she hasn’t been doing well lately and she has mobility problems.”
However, Matthew was less impressed and told viewers they were getting a “gentle spin on how great the Royal Family is.”
He continued: “It’s the people in the ivory tower spending our tax dollars.”

Another tweeted: “And now he’s endorsing the Queen? Despicable pig Matthew Wright. ”
Another commented: “Damn Matthew. Seriously, it’s like a broken record.”
One then followed: “Okay, Matthew, you don’t like the royal we got it.”
