Piers Morgan causes outcry as he lays into Meghan and Harry during Queen’s final journey

September 19, 2022

Piers Morgan caused outcry among TV viewers earlier today after criticisingPrince Harry andMeghan Markle during the coverage ofthe state funeral of the late Queen Elizabeth II.

Despite makingsomewhat of a surprising U-turn last week when he called Prince William and Prince Harry’s reunion “heart-rendering”, the outspoken presenter has ruffled feathers once again while discussing the division between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the royal family.

The formerGood Morning Britain presenter, 57, was covering Her Majesty’s funeral for US TV station Fox News, when he told viewers that it was “hard to forgive” Harry and Meghan following their interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021.

While speaking about the Sussexes with fellow TV personality Sharon Osbourne, Piers claimed that 38 year old Harry and Meghan, 41, had made the late monarch’s life “difficult” in recent years.

During the discussion, Sharon explained that she didn’t know why Harry gave up his “country for celebrity” and opened up about her opinions on Prince Harry’s highly anticipated memoir.

“My sadness is looking at Harry and looking at where he belongs,” Sharon said. “He's made himself the black sheep… the country adored him and Meghan too. I don't know how you give up your country for celebrity.”

She added: “It's such a different life and I don't really understand it. Everything they do is talk about the royal family. If you wanted to leave, why is it you just talk about the royal family? If I was him, I'd give back the money I earned from the books.”

Meanwhile, TalkTV star Piers claimed that the Duke of Sussex wanted to “settle scores” for his late mother Princess Diana, who died in 1997 when he was just 12 years old.

“I think he still feels like he has to settle his scores for his mother, but I don't think his mother would want this,” Piers said. “The more he attacks the monarchy, the more estranged he'll be.”

Speaking of the infamous Oprah interview, he added: “It was just after Philip got taken ill,” continuing that, “I think, 'You made the Queen's life so difficult for the last two years of her life'.”

Piers’ latest comments come afterthe broadcaster praised Princess Anne for her selflessness following the tragic death of her mother, the late Her Majesty, on 8 September.
