Joan Collins: We don’t need to give Harry and Meghan ‘more oxygen’

Joan Collins is throwing some shade at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle amid their first return to the UK since June.

During a guest appearance on Monday’s “Good Morning Britain,” the actress – who was promoting her new musical film, “Tomorrow Morning” – was asked if she had any thoughts about “other Duchesses” right now.

“Who could that be? I have no idea,” Collins, 89, joked, seemingly referencing the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

“Do we need to give any of them more oxygen?”

The interview was conducted as Harry, 37, and Markle, 41, traveled to the UK, where the “Suits” alum gave a speech about gender equality at the One Young World 2022 Summit in Manchester.

“We often hear people say, ‘The time is now,’ but I’m going to double down on that, by saying your time is now,” Markle told the audience on Monday.

“The important work can’t wait for tomorrow, and this week the world is watching as you cement your place in history by showcasing the good that you are doing today.”

“Good Morning Britain” co-host Susanna Reid later suggested that Markle was “over at the moment” because she “took exception to being called a diva by Mariah Carey” on her “Archetypes” podcast.

“Oh, really?” Collins responded. “I think it’s rather nice to be called a diva, now and again. I mean, it’s supposed to be a compliment.”

In the episode, Markle told Carey, 53, that she does not personally “connect to” the “diva … persona,” to which she responded, “You give us diva moments sometimes, Meghan. Don’t act like [you don’t].”

“What kind of diva moments did I give you?” the actress asked.

Carey then clarified that she was referring to Markle’s “visual[s]” and not her personality, noting she “didn’t mean” anything by the remark.

The “We Belong Together” singer doubled down on her explanation, later tweeting thatshe meant the comment in an “empowering” way.

“Yes! I called her a diva, in the most fabulous, gorgeous, and empowering meaning of the word!!!” Carey wrote.
