When asked if he had paid a visit to Harry and Meg's mansion in Montecito, James, whose children are Max, 11, Carey, seven and Charlotte, four, told The Sun, "It was more a sort of playdate scenario."

Prince Harry and Meghan moved to the USA after stepping back from their royal duties at the start of 2020, leaving The Firm to become financially independent and giving up their ties to the royal family.

"I’m a huge fan of both of them. Obviously I know Harry better than I know Meghan but I think it’s really hard to judge, or be judgmental," James said of the couple, confirming his support for them.

Praising Harry, the Late Late Show host continued, "I have a huge amount of respect and admiration for Harry, and anyone who has been around him and spent time with him would feel exactly the same way.

"I think he is a devoted and loving husband and father and I think what they have done is incredibly brave and I’ll always be in their corner."
