Someone else continued: “I am surprised Susannah and Kate aren’t in more muted colours, not necessarily black, but the bright purple confuses me. Only because of the 8 days of national mourning and the male newscasters have to wear black ties. Just surprised to see bright purple #gmb.”
“Why are @kategarraway and @susannareid100 not wearing black on @gmb? I’m rather disappointed that they are not as a sign of respect! All other guests appear to be! #gmb,” a sixth viewer wrote online.
However, someone else commented: “Why should the presenters be wearing black? The old boy passed last week and as much as it’s sad for the family and those who really knew him, life goes on for the rest of us and I think after the last year we’ve all done enough mourning of our own don’t you? #GMB.”
Throughout the show, the presenters spoke to those who had met or interacted with the Prince.
Royal Commentator Dick Arbiter was asked by Susanna: “What was he like when you were with him?”
