Olivia Colman has labelled the press treatment of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as "evil".

The actress, who plays Queen Elizabeth in the third series of Netflix's The Crown, told LBC that newspapers have been very mean towards the young royals.

She said: "It's just evil. They're mean to them.

"I don't know why they are so mean to a fellow human being. It always strikes me as being odd."

"Everyone wants to have Christmas on their own every now and then. It's alright."
