Trevor Noah jokes Meghan Markle was not present at the Sandringham summit with the queen because “nothing good happens when white people invite you into the country,” because the late hosts toast the royal couple
- Late night TV hosts Harry and Meghan decided to leave the UK
- Trevor Noah compared the Sandringham summit with film Get Out and said Meghan didn’t go because ‘nothing good happens when white people invite you to the country’
- Colbert’s crazy couple are leaving the UK “but staying on the Queen’s Verizon plan”
- Kimmel said he did not understand the anger because it is “every parent’s dream not to let their 35-year-old child live with them.”
Trevor Noah, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel focused on Harry and Meghan on Monday evening while enjoying the departure of the royal couple from the UK.
Harry’s Sandringham Summit with the Queen took the highest bill for The Daily Show when Noah pointed out Meghan was not present because she is with Archie in Canada.
“I don’t blame Meghan for not going,” he joked, “because nothing good happens when white people invite you to the countryside.

“We all know. We have seen Get Out, we know how this *** ends! ”
Noah also had a doll with the queen herself after she was filmed while driving away from the top in a Range Rover “as if she were in a hip-hop video from the nineties.”
Meanwhile, Stephen Colbert of the Late Show also opened his show with the news, saying: “The world is still on the verge of escalating tensions between rival foreign powers that can erupt into a complete war at any moment.
“And everyone asks the same moving question: can Harry and Meghan really leave the royal family?”
He then joked that, like many millennials leaving the parental home, “they will stick to the plan of the Queen Verizon.”

In Los Angeles, Jimmy Kimmel made a similar joke when he threw Meghan and Harry into the end of a news segment that focused largely on Trump and Iran.
“The royal family is upset that Harry and Meghan want to move and become financially independent,” he said. ‘Isn’t that every parent’s dream?
“Not to let their 35-year-old child live with them?”
After hours of talks, the queen issued a statement on Monday evening saying that a “transition period” would come because Harry and Meghan would create a new life for themselves between the UK and Canada.
“Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time members of the royal family, we respect and understand their desire to live a more independent life,” she wrote.
Jimmy Kimmel said he did not understand the anger of the queen on Harry who wanted to leave and added: “Surely it is the dream of every parent not to let you live with you 35 year old?”
Monday night was not the first time that late night hosts had a doll with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
As news about their departure last week, Seth Meyers spread a segment in his show under the headline ‘Meghan kidnaps Harry’.
Jimmy Fallon also had the Sussexes in his sights when he joked that the queen was starting to refer to Kate as “the one still in the will.”
Harry and Meghan will now divide their time between the UK and Canada after they have reached an agreement with the rest of the family to retire as senior royals.
Although the Queen noted in her statement that there are still “complex cases” that need to be resolved, she said she expects that a “final decision” will be made “in the coming days.”
