Viewers will get to see what the Queen’s third cousin, Princess Olga Romanov, thinks of the Sussexes in a one-off ITV special called The Queen and her Cousins.

Hosted by none other than Alexander Armstrong, the documentary takes a closer look at some member of Her Royal Highness’s extended family. A colourful character to say the least, Princess Olga is not shy of giving her opinion and she makes it abundantly clear in the programme that her view on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to open up is “not great.”

Olga is the first of three cousins that Alexander meets on his journey and she agrees to be his travelling companion throughout the show.

As the Pointless presenter and the Russian princess are driving to meet Lord Ivar Mountbatten, Alexander asks, “Is there still a fairy story thing that attaches to royalty do you think?”

To which Olga responds: “Well yes and no. It all depends on how many times they tell you about their problems on television which I’m afraid I’m not very keen on.”

When Alexander proceeds to ask what her view of the Sussexes is, Olga simply shakes her head and says, “Not great.”

Olga continues: “I mean the Queen’s never sat there and said about anything that makes her miserable has she? She’s always got on with it.

“The most she ever did was that Annus Horribilis which I thought was wonderful. I think a bit of mystique and all that is a very good thing.”

The couple – who are currently expecting their second child – made waves with their recent Oprah interview which aired on ITV back in March.

A whopping 11.1 million people in the UK tuned in to watch the candid conversation between Meghan, Harry and Oprah in which the couple discussed Meghan’s mental health battle and the tumultuous months that resulted in them stepping back as senior Royals.

The controversy that arose in the weeks following the interview has reportedly caused a rift between Harry and his brother, Prince William.

As the Royal Family prepare for Prince Philip’s funeral on Saturday – the Duke of Edinburgh sadly passed away on the 9th April – it’s thought that the pair will put on a unified front.

Speaking to theTelegraph , a source said: "They know it is not about them on Saturday — it is about honouring their grandfather's memory and supporting their grandmother.

"I would be extremely surprised if that wasn't front and centre of both their minds. They will be keen to spend time together as a family, in the same time zone for once."

The Queen and her Cousins with Alexander Armstrong airs tonight at 9pm on ITV
