Piers Morgan

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle 'only interested in making money', says Piers Morgan

Piers Morgan has taken a fresh swipe at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

 
 
 

 

In his latest column, the former Good Morning Britain host, 56, claims that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex 'have proven themselves to be only interested in making money' since stepping down as senior royals.

The TV star focuses on the pair - who are parents to son Archie and daughter Lilibet - wanting police protection when they visit the UK from America.

Ignoring that they have told they're happy to front the costs of the protection, he went on to blast them as "Hollywood celebrities on the make."

Writing in The Sun, he fumed: "Since they quit Britain, Harry and Meghan have proven themselves to be only interested in one thing: making as much money as fast as possible by ruthlessly exploiting their royal status."

He went on to vent that the couple are "laughably hypocritical" before adding: "Harry and Meghan aren’t real royals anymore, they’re just another pair of Hollywood celebrities on the make.

"And like any other celebrities, they can sort their own protection when they come here, just as they do in America."

Piers has been vocal about Prince Harry and Meghan wanting security when visiting the UK

He made several jibes at them when appearing on Sophie Raworth on BBC's Sunday Morning.

Sharing his thoughts on Meghan and Prince Harry, he said: "It was absolutely chillingly inevitable that these two would pop their heads up again right when the Queen least wants them to.

"I feel so sorry for the Queen right now - it’s her Platinum Jubilee coming!

"The timing of it is so appalling as well - she’s lost her husband, she’s got this awful situation with Andrew, and now her grandson, who has been baiting the Royal Family all year, has now popped up from his mansion in California to say that when he comes back to the UK, he wants to have the British police protect him."

Making it clear that he didn't agree, Piers said: "Well sorry mate, that’s not how this works!"

Sophie pointed out that Prince Harry has offered to pay for the police protection, which Piers had no interest in hearing.

He said: "I don’t give a damn!"
