AN excitable Alsatian gatecrashed the royal biographer's live TV interview as she discussed Harry and Meghan's "extraordinary" decision to quit as senior royals.
Penny Junor was interrupted by her dog as she talked to Sky news presenter Mark Austin following the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's bombshell announcement.
Appearing via a live video link from her Bristol home, Ms Junor was asked for her take on the revelation, to which she started to say: "It is the most extraordinary story."
However, she was quickly distracted by her inquisitive pet, whose head appeared right in front of the camera.
Slightly flustered, Ms Junor looked to a person off-camera and said: "Sorry…no, no, sorry leave the dog."
She then apologised to Austin, who laughed and said: "That's quite an extraordinary start as well!"
Ms Junor, also laughing, replied: "Well, you’re in my home and so is my dog."
Austin later shared the fun clip on Twitter, writing: "First rule of TV. Don't work with children…or Penny Junor's dog."
In the interview Ms Junor branded Harry and Meghan's decision "extraordinary" and warned it had not been properly thought through.
Harry and Meghan said they will continue to "fully support" the Queen, and work to become financially independent.
It is understood Harry and Meghan had just begun talks with the Queen and Charles about their future roles when they made their decision to go public.
Their decision left the Queen "deeply upset" and Charles and William "incandescent with rage".
Ms Junor said: "The problem is that they are not working for themselves, they are working for a family firm and to be making announcements of this sort without consulting is beyond bizarre.
"I can't quite see how it's going to work. I don't think it's been properly thought through."
The entertaining live news interruption mirrors one from nearly three years ago, when an American academic was gatecrashed by his two children – and his wife – during a live interview with BBC World News.
Professor Robert Kelly was discussing the impeachment of South Korea’s president Park Geun-hye in March 2017 when his daughter Marion, then four, and son James, then one, burst into the room.
The BBC's hilarious video on Twitter of the incident now has over three million views.
