NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA: An Australian liberal senator, Hollie Hughes, described Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as “awful, revolting people” on the eve of the Queen Elizabeth II's funeral. However, the New South Wales senator’s shocking outburst on live TV has given birth to several debates online with some social media users complaining about why the senator criticized the couple when she didn't even know them personally.

Senator Hollie Hughes, who has never met the couple, was speaking on Sky News as Prince Harry was preparing to attend the funeral of his grandmother. She largely blamed the former actress Meghan Markle for the couple’s estrangement from the royal family.

The whole world had their eyes on the royals every since the Queen’s death on September 8. During the funeral, Meghan and Harry walked behind Prince William and Kate, and Princess Charlotte and Prince George down the aisle as they got into Westminster Abbey after the Queen’s coffin.

Speaking on Sky News on September 19, she said, “I am sick of both of them. I sort of long for the day where I hope Harry rolls over one day, takes one look and thinks, ‘What have I done?’ and comes to his senses and moves back across the pond. I think he’s made an awful error. And I think she’s well, I think she’s had a terrible influence over him."

The politician went on to add, "She’s a horrible human. It’s absolutely disgraceful. And I don’t know what’s happening with the book that he’s done. Her podcasts apparently they’re going through them now trying to take out parts where she said not particularly kind things about the Queen. They’re awful, revolting, revolting people and I absolutely think they shouldn’t be invited to this and I hope they’re not invited to a lot of other things." Senator Hughes then speculated about Harry and Meghan getting divorced.

Netizens were quick to take note of the inflammatory TV interview and slammed the politician. A user tweeted, "Even though Harry has said publicly that Meghan Markle's mental health is impacted by the constant media negativity, he fears for her life & it brings back painful memories of his mother's death, Australian Senator Hollie Hughes piles on with more hatred. #auspol." Another tweeted, "Hollie Hughes is a very strange woman. She speaks as if she has intimate knowledge of Megan Markel even though she hasn’t met her. These sort of women who bear false witness about other women do so much damage. And they don’t care." Another tweet read, "Never heard of Hollie Hughes till today and already know she is a stain on Australian politics. What a horrid human to focus her hate on someone she’s never met when the queen is being remembered. How embarrassing for us Aussies and the people she claims to represent."

It doesn't end there. Another person, disgusted with the politician's remarks, wrote, "Liberal Senator Hollie Hughes' vile attack on Meghan Markle reminds me that the Liberal Party has become just as hateful, bigoted and racist as Pauline Hanson's One Nation. #auspol #NoRoomForRacism #HarryandMeghan." Another chimed in, saying, "It's like I need a shower every time I see this repeated. Hollie Hughes's vicious & unprovoked attack on Meghan Markle is soiled & vile. I don't understand from where her cruel verbal derangement's come from or why she'd think to be so loathsome could pass for reasonable comment." Another commented, "Wow. Meghan Markle so needs another person with a platform who doesn't even know her to join the vile pile on. Disgusting. Hollie Hughes shows that SHE is a horrible human"
