Kate Middleton gives a subtle nod to Prince Harry & Meg as the royal family reunite for Her Majesty

Deborah James hits back at criticism of Meghan

LADY Deborah James hit back at grumbling critics after she joked she couldn’t die on the anniversary weekend because Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would steal her thunder.

The Sun writer was still able to manage a smile on Saturday despite being treated for end-of-life treatment for terminal colon cancer.

The 40-year-old told The Sun she was “determined not to die over the anniversary weekend,” adding, “I don’t want Meghan to steal my thunder.”

But critics quickly hit back, and some seemed to miss the joke. Deborah, who recently celebrated her brother’s engagement, later took to the platform to defend the anniversary fun – explaining it was “a joke”.

The mother-of-two wrote: “Meghan’s comment is a joke.

She added: “The rest isn’t. Is dying the last taboo of all? I thought poo talk would be difficult but navigating end of life care makes it easy to check your poo by comparing DNR chat and respecting docs!”

Meanwhile, fans were quick to show their support, with one person commenting: “Of course it was a joke. It’s black humor and how many of us made a joke in the GP operation etc.

“Unfortunately there are a lot of people who just don’t get that humor and take everything literally, then you have to explain everything and it’s so annoying.”

Another said: “I thought it would be a funny comment and I love that you are being so honest with all of us.

“It shows that it’s okay to talk about poop, about death, and about your personal desires. Love your sense of humor, please don’t change.”
