Alex Beresford took a swipe at Prince Harry on Friday's Good Morning Britain as the show played a clip of his interview with James Corden.

Prince Harry, 36, appeared on The Late Late Show in America overnight, which saw him on an open bus tour of Los Angeles with host James, 42.

The pair stopped off at the house used to film The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, even rapping the show's iconic theme tune.

While they were there, Harry received a FaceTime call from his pregnant wife Meghan Markle, 39, where she revealed that her affectionate nickname for her husband was "Haz".

  • Prince William and Kate Middleton 'appalled' by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's interview with Oprah Winfrey

As hosts of the ITV breakfast show Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard discussed the sweet moment and discussed the nickname, weatherman Alex, 40, was heard hitting out at the royal.

Ben turned to Alex and said: "Haz, Alex, Haz!" to which the former Dancing On Ice contestant replied: "Has been."

The remark was ignored by the show's host, with Kate continuing: "When you're rapping The Fresh Prince of Bel Air you're called Haz, aren't you?"

Alex then took to Twitter to write: "Prince Haz will be trending today," alongside an emoji of a monkey covering it's eyes.

He later returned to defend Harry to his 68,000 followers, writing: "Prince Harry says he stepped back, he didn't step down.

"Ya'll still won’t be happy with that though. He can't win!"

Alex's remark comes one week after it was announced that Harry and Meghan had lost their royal patronages after stepping down as working members of The Firm.

A statement issued by the Royal family read: "Following conversations with The Duke, The Queen has written confirming that in stepping away from the work of The Royal Family it is not possible to continue with the responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service.

"The honorary military appointments and Royal patronages held by The Duke and Duchess will therefore be returned to Her Majesty, before being redistributed among working members of The Royal Family."
