"It's hard to empathise with Harry and Meghan but I do feel like they're in a position where they're damned if they do, damned if they don't," Mitchell told Extra, per Express. "If they make a big fuss about coming over, they'll be accused of stealing the limelight. And if they keep their heads down then it's like, 'they don't care about the family.'"

Mitchell added, "They're going to have a tough week and it's going to be interesting to see how it plays out."
