Susanna Reid takes swipe at Prince Charles’ Greece trip days before travel ban

Susanna Reid appeared to make a dig at Prince Charles and Camila Parker Bowles during the latest edition of Good Morning Britain.

The 50-year-old presenter was back on the ITV breakfast show on Thursday morning alongside co-host Adil Ray.

She discussed the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall's trip to Greece amid new travel restrictions which could land Brit with a huge fine.

New rules that come into place on March 29 state that attempted to leave England to travel outside the UK without a reasonable excuse could be smacked with up to a £5,000 fine.

However, Prince Charles and Camila have recently jetted to Greece to celebrate the country's 20th anniversary of independence at the request of the UK Government.

The pair were invited to the event by the country's prime minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

Talking about their travels, Susanna said: "The royals are allowed to go to Greece.

"Right now, the Prince of Wales says he’s delighted to be back. He is paying tribute to the country where his father was born, as we all know almost 100 years ago.

"They are there on a two-day trip to celebrate the bicentenary of Greece’s independence. Lovely trip for them."

She continued: "They are doing their international duty, of course, masked and distanced but an interesting time to do it when the country has been told from Monday there will be a £5,000 fine if you go on holiday."

"One for rule them and one for others"

"Everyone else is being told summer holidays are unlikely."

Elsewhere in the episode, Susanna hit out at Shadow Business Secretary Ed Miliband during a debate about electric cars.

The politician was quizzed about his all-electric drive campaign.

However, when quizzed about owning an electric vehicle, Ed admitted that he is yet to buy one.

He said: "But it is only going to happen with bold government action and we are not seeing it at the moment.

"The government needs to step in."

Susanna, 50, asked: "I presume you have got one?"

"It is a work in progress," he said.

"What?" asked Adil, 46, before a stunned Susanna added: "Practice what you preach."

Shadow Business Secretary, Mr Miliband said: "I haven't yet. It is a work in progress.

"I have got an electric bike but I have not yet. I will do, let me assure you.

"We were on our way to buying one before the lockdown."

He continued: "It is going to happen, I promise you. I have bought an electric bike. It is on its way."

"You are pushing for everybody to have an electric car and you do not have one yourself?" asked Susanna.

Adil said: "You have not even experienced one…"

"It isn't accessible to you!" said Susanna, after Mr Miliband responded: "I am trying to make it accessible. I am pushing to make it accessible."
