CONTROVERSIAL royal author Lady Colin Campbell clashed with Phillip Schofield as she claimed Meghan Markle wants to "run for President" of the United States in a bizarre interview.

Outspoken Lady C is known for her books delving into the private lives of the royals and joined This Morning to discuss her newest publication on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

The author claims in her new book – Meghan and Harry: The Real Story – Meghan orchestrated their move to the United States to launch her political career – with the idea to run for President.

Speaking to hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby live from her home, Lady C said: "That is what she told people.

"She's told people her ultimate amibition is to run for President.

"And she announced last week that she is going into politics, notwithstanding the fact that no member of the British royal family is allowed to enter politics."

Philip clashed with Lady Colin Campbell on other points in the awkward interview about her tell-all book about Meghan and Harry, and she even labelled him "ignorant".

Dancing On Ice's Phillip called the book "tawdry and undignified", and said: "I’d be surprised any of the royals would want to get involved with more gossip after your Princess Diana book."

The aristocrat defended herself saying: "It's history in the making. That shows how ignorant you are if I may point out.

"My Diana biography was named the most believable by People Magazine and had it not been for that biography, Diana would have thrown Prince Charles to the wolves."

The interview turned fiery as Phillip asked if it was difficult that the bookwas "unverified" by the royals.

At one point, Lady C suggested she doesn't leak stories to the press, and Phillip labelled her a "gossip".

She says: "If you knew anything about their private life – which you don't, because I don't leak like a sieve. I'm not Harry, I'm not Meghan."

Phillip replied: "Well, hang on, but you are a gossip. You're a gossip."

Lady C said back: "Everybody's a gossip, gossip is history in the making. Or history that has already happened."

However, Phil wasn't letting it go, replying: "But only when it suits you."

Lady C added: "Not when it suits me, when it's the troops. If you have any respect for respect for the troops, you would be able to appreciate the people who actually stand up and are counted and are against the tide, understand the troops."

Phillip then said: "I think you'll find I've done that myself."

When Holly and Phil suggested she pay attention to the former royals' mental health, Lady C replied: "No, we cannot be mentally healthy if you don't have integrity or stand up for the truth."

At this point, Holly said she "didn't get" what Lady C said – much to their guest's exasperation.

When signing off the interview, Phillip ended with: "It's been fascinating, if a little patronising. Thank you for joining us today."

Lady C is notorious in royal spheres for her book Diana in Private: The Princess Nobody Knows.
