Sunrise hosts divide viewers with ‘childish’ Prince Harry skit poking fun at his new autobiography Spare: ‘Give it a rest’

Sunrise has drawn mixed feedback from viewers after airing a ‘childish’ skit about Prince Harry’s best-selling memoir Spare on Wednesday.

During the ‘story time’-themed segment, host Matt Doran read aloud an extract from Spare while his colleagues pretended to listen intently.

Fellow anchor Monique Wright lay on the couch with her head on newsreader Mylee Hogan’s lap, while sportscaster Mark Beretta rested on his elbow.

‘Soon after we returned to Britain, the Palace announced that Willy [Prince William] was going to marry,’ Doran read, as easy-listening music played in the background.

‘And then what?’ Wright asked in mock excitement.

‘He calls him Willy, interesting!’ Doran remarked, dripping with sarcasm, as Beretta agreed: ‘Yeah, that’s new!’

Wrapping up the show, Wright joked: ‘See you tomorrow, everyone. We’ll still be here!’

Some viewers were unimpressed by the light-hearted segment, branding it ‘childish’ and requesting they scrap any discussions about Harry in the future.

‘I hate this show. So dumb and childish’, one wrote on Facebook.

Another added: ‘How childish you lot are, get a life. Give Harry a rest for God’s sake. Sick of hearing all the bashing of him.’

However, there were plenty of positive responses too, with one fan commenting: ‘You guys are awesome. Enjoyed the laughs. Mon, you crack us up.’ 

‘Should have taken your shoes off, Mon, then you would have been much more relaxed! Love your story-telling, Matt, read so eloquently!’ another said.

It also includes claims the Prince of Wales physically attacked Harry and teased him about his panic attacks, and that the King put his own interests above Harry’s and was jealous of the Duchess of Sussex and the Princess of Wales.

Harry, who was known as ‘Captain Wales’ in the military, also wrote that he killed 25 Taliban fighters during his second tour of duty in Afghanistan. 

He said did not think of those killed ‘as people’ but instead ‘chess pieces’ he had taken off the board.
