Katie Price has said she can "relate" to Meghan Markle's comments on wanting to maintain privacy while being in the public eye.

In a clip that wasn't shown in the main broadcast of Oprah Winfrey's interview with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Meghan said she thought "everyone has a basic right to privacy".

"But I do believe, because I have this as well, that when you're at home you should be allowed privacy at home.

In the unaired clip, Markle said: "I think everyone has a basic right to privacy. Basic. We're not talking about anything that anybody else wouldn't expect."

She added: "There's no one who's on Instagram or social media that would say, 'Because I shared this one picture, that entitles you to have my entire camera roll. Go ahead and look through it. No one would want that."
