Dame Joan Collins rips into Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Christmas card

Dame Joan Collins ripped into Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Christmas card picture.

The legendary actress, 85, made a hilarious comparison when she discussed the festive card on today’s Good Morning Britain .

The Dynasty star said: "Well it looks like something they put in one of those silver frames they sell in Selfridges."

"Yes it does," Susanna Reid agreed. "It’s a very arty card."

Piers Morgan couldn’t help but laugh, but it quickly turned into a coughing fit, with Joan following behind him.

As she coughed, she blamed Piers for giving her the "lurgy".

Dame Joan also spoke about how Dynasty made her the highest paid woman on TV, and the drawback that came along with it.

She said she was so highly paid that bosses told her they couldn’t afford to have her in every episode of the show, and that her appearances were cut back to just 10 episodes.

She was also asked by Piers what she made of the bombshell interview with Meghan’s father Thomas Markle, that had aired earlier on the show.

But she said she was mostly unaware of what was going on between them, as everyone in America is staying out of it.

Earlier on the show, Thomas revealed the real reason behind his rift with his daughter and her husband.

He said: "The only thing I can actually think of is that they’re reading all of the things in the tabloids and what people are saying I’m saying and I’ve only done five interviews and out of those interviews hundreds of other people come and say I’ve said these things and I haven’t said these things but they’re believing it and I’m being shunned.

"I read comments every day that these are things I’ve apparently said. I can’t give you a particular quote right now but people are letting me know."

Piers said that Thomas had been "completely blanked by his daughter since the wedding".

The presenter said Thomas had been trying desperately to reach out to his daughter to no avail, and Susanna said she hoped they could change that in the run up to Christmas.

Thomas added: "She’s always been very polite to everyone, she’s never been rude to anyone. I don’t really know what’s happening right now.

"There were some questions about my heart attack and so forth. The unfortunate thing about Harry and my daughter is that they believe everything they read in the papers.

"They told me not to believe everything I read and now they’re doing that and think I’m saying a lot of things that I’m not."
