Two white supremacists are on trial

A jury heard how Christopher allegedly said Harry should be “prosecuted and killed for treason,” while his co-host used Harry and Meghan as an example when slandering mixed-race couples.

The two white supremacists are currently facing trial and have been charged with “encouraging acts of extreme right-wing terrorism” on their podcast from 2019 -2020

State prosecutor, Anne Whyte QC told the jury: “They are men who hold extreme right-wing views. They are dedicated and unapologetic white supremacists.”

She added: “They reserve particular hatred for mixed race relationships, and they use Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s marriage and children as prime examples of this.

“Christopher Gibbons referred to his views that the Sussex’s baby was an abomination that should be put down and Prince Harry should be prosecuted and found guilty and judicially killed for treason,” she concluded.
