British journalist Piers Morgan, an outspoken critic of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, has again spoken out against the couple. In a recent interview on Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News, Morgan launched another polemic against the two. He also advised them to “pipe down” as he believes that the public is “sick of their yapping”.
Piers Morgan says the public is fed up of Harry and Meghan
While talking to Hannity, Morgan said that watching their criticism of the British Royals is “sickening” to the British. He further said that, unlike the Queen, “Meghan and Harry don’t even understand the concept of duty”. Furthermore, the former GMB host emphasized that the couple should speak less, and learn from the Queen:
I think it’s time those two gave up their titles, stopped whining 24/7, and tried to take a leaf out of the book of the Queen. Take a little tip from the Queen: less is more. [And] if you want to be a royal, a member of the royal family, less is more. We are hearing too much of your yapping, too much of your whining, it’s time to pipe down.
Furthermore, Hannity mentioned if it was hypocritical of Harry and Meghan to trash the first amendment of the United States while using its protection to talk against the Royal Family. On this, Piers Morgan said:
I think it’s completely ridiculous. They want to have their royal cake and eat it, very happy to trade off their royal titles the Duke and Duchess when it comes to negotiating hundreds of millions of dollars off companies like Spotify and Netflix. But at the same time, they want the right to trash the royal family and the monarchy and therefore the Queen who is the head of the monarchy on global television.
About returning on air and his departure from Good Morning Britain
Asked if he would return on-air, Morgan said that there are some ongoing negotiations, saying
I’m definitely having some interesting conversations with a lot of people who wouldn’t mind a piece of the action of somebody who trebled the ratings on that morning show.
On his unceremonious departure from GMB, Piers Morgan said that he only had two options. Either apologize for his remarks or leave. He chose the latter, saying:
It was a weird and surreal kind of day on the day I left where, having reached a ratings high, normally you would get invited to a boardroom and presented with a carriage clock. But I got invited to either apologise to Meghan Markle for disbelieving her or leave the building, so I decided to leave the building.
Earlier this year, iTV fired Piers Morgan for his scathing remarks against the Duke and Duchess. They came after the couples’ bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, which stirred controversy on social media. The channel received 40,000 complaints from viewers, including Markle, asking for Morgan to be removed. Since then, Morgan has continued his criticism of the two, defending his right to free speech.
