Meghan and Harry 'gleefully milking royal titles' despite leaving Firm – Piers in new rant


The former Good Morning Britain host – who quit his role when he refused to apologise for accusing the Duchess of lying during her Oprah Winfrey interview – gave a brutal assessment of the couple in his latest MailOnline column. He accused them of “hypocrisy” for saying they stepped back as senior royals last January to seek privacy before “gleefully milking their royal titles”.

The outspoken journalist ranted: “Meghan and Harry have their noses permanently rammed in the regal trough, and it’s obvious that they now intend to keep them there until they’ve made themselves repulsively rich and famous.

“In this regard, they’re the royal version of the Kardashians – people with no discernible talent other than for pimping themselves out to the highest bidders and a craven desire to air their dirty family linen in public for financial gain.

“But at least the Kardashians’ mission to be billionaire TMI merchants is founded on a basic honesty: they don’t pretend to be talented or saving the planet.

“By contrast, at the heart of the Sussexes’ stated campaign to ‘uplift and unite’ us all with their searing compassion – unless you’re related to them, then you can go **** yourself – lies outrageous two-faced deceit.”

Mr Morgan went on to say that his “biggest concern” about the Sussexes was the “ongoing damage they are doing to the Royal Family and monarchy”.

He claimed they are trying to create a rival to the Royal Family in America.

He added: “(It is) one that’s not based on the kind of quiet, admirable, stoic, modest, duty-led majesty of the Queen, but on a cheap, tacky, noisy, toxic, Kardashian-style 24/7 invasion of our senses that’s specifically intended to fleece royal status for maximum personal commercial benefit.

“Meghan Markle’s incendiary but still-unproven claims of racism and callousness against the royals during her Oprah whineathon back in March have already caused very real harm to the Monarchy, especially in parts of the Commonwealth.”

Mr Morgan claimed that he was initially friends with Meghan when he connected with the then Suits actress on social media in 2015.

This led to them exchanging emails, messages and arranging to meet up for drinks.

They later spent a cosy night together in his favourite pub in 2016, discussing a manner of personal topics, but it was the last time he ever heard from the Duchess of Sussex.

He claims that after meeting Prince Harry she “went cold” and “ghosted” him – prompting him to throw increasingly bitter insults at the former Hollywood actress.

Things came to a head in March when – sitting alongside co-host Susanna Reid – Mr Morgan said he “didn’t believe a word” of Meghan’s claims about being suicidal during the Sussexes’ explosive Oprah interview.

Ofcom received more than 50,000 complaints – a record amount – about the programme in March, including from the Duchess of Sussex herself.

Earlier this month, the regulator cleared Good Morning Britain over his controversial comments.

It said that Mr Morgan’s statements about suicide and mental health had the potential to be highly offensive but concluded that the programme “contained sufficient challenge to provide adequate protection and context to viewers”.

Reacting to Ofcom’s decision, the TV personality tweeted: “@Ofcom⁩ rejects all complaints against me over Meghan Markle furore that led to my exit from ⁦@GMB⁩.

“Verdict says I was entitled to disbelieve her & Prince Harry & to restrict my right to do so would be a ‘chilling restriction on freedom of expression’.”
