Today host Karl Stefanovic LAUGHS at Meghan Markle's 'fire scare' with son Archie


Karl Stefanovic scoffed at Meghan Markle on Wednesday while discussing the Duchess of Sussex’s new claims about a ‘fire scare’ in her son Archie’s bedroom.

The Today show host, who has never been shy to criticise Meghan, was wholly unsympathetic after listening to her describe the distressing incident on her new Archetypes podcast for Spotify.

Meghan said she was left shaken after her then-newborn son’s nursery caught on fire during the Sussexes’ tour of South Africa in 2019.

The baby wasn’t in the room at the time, but Meghan said she was so rattled that she struggled to attend a royal engagement later that day. 

Stefanovic chuckled as he tried to make sense of Meghan’s reaction, facetiously asking his co-host Allison Langdon: ‘So, just to get this right, the baby’s, what, not even there?’   

‘No… the nanny had taken the baby from the room before the fire ignited,’ Langdon replied.

‘But… so then, the baby’s not there when the fire catches, right? And because the baby wasn’t there, she was going to have difficulties going to a function? Oh, my god,’ Stefanovic said, rolling his eyes.

Langdon attempted to show some compassion for Meghan, reminding Stefanovic the duchess must have felt vulnerable as a new mother living in a strange country. 

Stefanovic burst into laughter before calling out Langdon for faking sympathy.

‘That is not you talking. You are a woman who says ‘grow a set’. That’s what you would say normally,’ he exclaimed. 

Smiling sheepishly, Langdon nodded in agreement. 

‘[Yes], in regards to Meghan…’ she conceded.

Elsewhere in the segment, Langdon admitted that while she ‘tries to like’ Meghan there’s ‘something’ about the royal that rubs her up the wrong way. 

‘I really try to like Meghan Markle, I think some of the arguments she makes about ambition are very true, but there’s just something, you know?’ 

In her podcast, Meghan complained of a misconception ‘that if you’re an ambitious woman you have an agenda, you must be calculating or selfish or aggressive, or a climber’.

She also said that ‘the notion of ambition comes with many judgements and nuances – especially for women’.

In her podcast, Meghan relived the moment Archie narrowly escaped a fire in his bedroom during the Sussexes’ tour of South Africa – and spoke of her frustration that she immediately had to do another official engagement.

The drama unfolded when a heater in Archie’s bedroom caught fire, setting the nursery alight – though fortunately four-and-a-half month old Archie was downstairs with his nanny, who had gone ‘to get a snack.’

But Meghan spoke of the stress the ordeal had on her as a new mother, telling the podcast: ‘In that amount of time that [the nanny] went downstairs, the heater in the nursery caught on fire. There was no smoke detector. 

‘There was this moment where I’m standing on a tree stump and I’m giving this speech to women and girls, and we finish the engagement, we get in the car and they say there’s been a fire at the residence. What? There’s been a fire in the baby’s room,’ Meghan said. 

‘We came back. And, of course, as a mother, you go, ”Oh, my God, what?” Everyone’s in tears, everyone’s shaken. And what do we have to do? Go out and do another official engagement? I said, ‘this doesn’t make any sense’.’
