Lorraine Kelly, 61, quizzed Meghan Markle’s first boyfriend Joshua Silverstein, 39, about his friendship with the Duchess of Sussex, 39, and his thoughts on her bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview. Despite the pair both now being happily married, the host said she believes he’s the “one that got away”.
Meghan and Joshua dated aged 13 and split up before they went to high school, but he has since remained friends with her and her mum Doria.
In response to Lorraine’s comment, the guest said: “I think Meghan and Harry make an amazing couple.
“I could not have found anyone more perfect than my wife Cynthia.
“Meghan is happily married to Harry and they are about to have two children, and it’s a big thing to raise children in this current climate.
“A lot of people are looking to her as a role model and the fact she is a mother and this pop culture figure, she has a lot on her hands.”
On finding out she was marrying Prince Harry, Meghan’s ex said he just hoped she’d be happy.
Joshua went on to defend Meghan for speaking out about her time in the Royal Family.
During her chat with Oprah, she claimed an unnamed member of “the firm” had expressed concerns about their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor’s skin colour.
Lorraine’s guest added: “The fact Meghan was able to get on television and bravely talk about that is awesome and whenever people of colour speak out against oppression and racism, generally there is a huge backlash.
“The fact Meghan got up and spoke about that, even knowing it could create a lot of tension between her and her family.
“I thought that was really amazing and courageous on her part.”
Lorraine’s comment caught the attention of viewers, who expressed their thoughts on Twitter.

One wrote: “Wtf is wrong with Lorraine Kelly? How she going to tell Joshua, Meghan’s boyfriend she had when she was young teenager, that he was the one that got away.(sic)
“The dude is happily married with kids as is Meghan. #Lorraine.”
Another commented: “She tried it, he was like… nope”
A third added: “Why did the guy agree to go on the interview? He is stupid for doing that.”
Meghan tied the knot with the Duke of Sussex in 2018 and will celebrate their third wedding anniversary tomorrow.
The Royal pair are expecting their second child together, a baby girl.
They welcomed their son Archie, in 2019.
The former Suits star is believed to have met Harry through a mutual friend before they started dating.
She was married previously to Trevor Engelson from 2011 for two years.
