Piers Morgan has slammed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as “money-grabbing celebrities” after the royal couple reached a huge deal with Netflix to make a range of documentaries.
Following the royal couple’s TV news, Good Morning Britain host, Piers Morgan launched a scathing attack on the pair, citing that their royal titles have boosted the profile of the streaming giant.
Piers said in his column for Dailymail: “The world’s most successful streaming giants hired them because they’re royal, titled, and therefore, as we’ve seen since the announcement yesterday, can generate spectacular global media attention just by breaking wind in public.”
“How could anyone possibly feel ‘inspired’ by Meghan and Harry’s ‘authenticity, optimism and leadership’ or ‘resilience’ given that they’ve spent the past two years whining, quitting, living off rich people and preaching about equality from their position of supreme elitism?”
Piers added: “This is the same Meghan and Harry who’ve gutlessly run away from royal duty, and disconnected themselves from everyone and everything, to become shameless money-grabbing celebrities – right?”
Piers called the move for the couple “beyond parody” and playfully mocked what programmes they would be creating.
Piers added that he “can imagine the kind of hyper-woke, self-serving productions” the duo will make, including “Around the World in 80 Private Jets, How to Have Your Royal Cake and Eat It, and Woke me Up Before You Go Go.”
