Janet Street-Porter rips into 'peripheral royals' Princess Eugenie and Beatrice

Janet Street-Porter has laid into Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice, believing they shouldn’t be classed as members of the Royal Family.

Appearing on ITV’s Loose Women with Coleen Nolan, Brenda Edwards and Kelle Bryan, the panellist’s discussed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s spending £2.4 million of public money on their new home.

Speaking on the show, Janet wasn’t particularly against them spending so much on refurbishments of Frogmore Cottage, seeing it as a small drop in how much the Royal Family spend generally.

Addressing the topic, Janet said: ‘I don’t think it’s much money in the global scheme of running the Royal Family.

‘I’d like to see the Royal Family slimmed down so there wasn’t Beatrice and Eugenie and all these other ones, all the peripheral ones.’

Asked if she believes they don’t have the right to be called royal, Janet said: ‘No. Not really. No, they’re royal by bloodline.’

Princess Eugenie of York, 29, is the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew, Duke Of York, and Sarah, Duchess of York, and is tenth in line for the throne.

Princess Beatrice, 30, is their oldest daughter, and is ninth in line for the throne.

Janet is known for being vocal against the Royal Family, and recently criticised Prince Harry over claims he snubbed Donald Trump during his state visit.

‘I think he should grow up,’ Janet said. ‘Isn’t he 30 something? That’s the behaviour of a toddler really.

‘I feel with Prince Harry the tax payer contributes to his upkeep and he should have just been dignified.’

You can catch Loose Women weekdays on ITV at 12.30pm.
