She was quickly inundated with sweet messages – bar a few exceptions, including one person who wrote in response: "Does every thought and sentiment need to be on Twitter?" Joy then chose to reply to the comment, writing: "Apparently."

It's by no means the first time the ladies have fallen out. Meghan spoke about their tense relationship in her memoir, Bad Republican, in which she spoke about one particularly tense exchange that happened two days after she returned from maternity leave.

Meghan decided to leave The View in July 2021

Joy had snapped at Meghan for interrupting her to which Meghan replied: "You missed me so much Joy! You missed me while I was away on maternity leave, you missed me so much. You missed fighting with me!" In response, Joy told her: "I did not. I did not miss you. Zero."

"Joy seemed to smell that vulnerability like a shark smells blood in the water, and she took after it," Meghan wrote. "When we broke for commercial I burst into tears - not just like tearing up - uncontrollable sobbing.

"Until that moment it hadn't even occurred to me that Joy hadn't missed me. She texted me to see a baby picture of Liberty and she had seemed happy for me. We chatted in a friendly way. I believe that despite all our differences, deep down we had a mutual understanding of respect for each other."
