Rock icon Noel Gallagher called out Prince Harry, branding him a "f***ing woke snowflake" for taking potshots at the royal family. He was later commended for his comments by former British broadcaster Piers Morgan, who was forced to quit his TV gig over his criticism of Meghan Markle earlier this year. 

Recalling his own feud with Liam Gallagher, his younger brother, Noel Gallagher, the former Oasis vocalist, said he sympathized with Prince William for having a younger brother "shooting his f***ing mouth off with s**t that is just so unnecessary. I'd like to think I was always the William." He added, "Prince William. I feel that f***ing lad's pain," the Sun noted.

Noel was subjected to a number of verbal shots from his younger brother after Oasis disbanded in 2009. He added, "Prince Harry is coming across like a typical f***ing woke snowflake, f***ing a***hole. Just don’t be f***ing dissing your family because there’s no need for it," telling Harry to "shut up." Taking a jibe at Harry's wife, Meghan Markle, he added, “This is what happens when you get involved with Americans. As simple as that.”

Piers Morgan praises Noel's take

Morgan, who parted ways with 'Good Morning Britain' after receiving backlash over his comments on Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, following the controversial Oprah Winfrey interview in March, loved Noel's take. "I've always thought @NoelGallagher had his finger on the pulse of the nation's thoughts," he wrote in a tweet. Morgan also tweeted that Noel's interview with the Sun was "brilliant" and added "thank God there are still stars like @NoelGallagher who speak their mind, don't care who gets 'offended' & never whine about how awful their pampered privileged lives are. More please."



Many other social media users pointed out the irony behind Noel slamming Prince Harry. "Imagine Noel Gallagher criticising Prince Harry for distancing himself from a family for being racist to his wife when Noel hasn't spoken to his brother for 12 years because of a broken guitar. Now imagine that being printed in a national newspaper. Welcome to Britain," one of them said, while another noted, "The insincerity - or is it just stupidity - of this headline is white something. When did @NoelGallagher go to war? He guy’s a songwriter. Prince Harry fought for his country. The only snowflake is loudmouth Gallagher."

Another tweet said: "The last person Prince Harry should take comments on family relationships from is Noel Gallagher." A commenter wrote, "Noel Gallagher will call Prince Harry a 'woke fucking snowflake' in one breathe (sic) and then be in tears because his brother existed at the same time as him." Another added, "Think certain celebrities now just jump on the bandwagon when it comes to Harry and Meghan name to be noticed. And using the word woke now because it's fashionable to say. Noel Gallagher criticizing Harry but has no shame in using Harry name for publicity for whatever his doing."






The 'Lilibet' drama

Noel's comments came in during the feud between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the royal family that is heating up again over the name of Harry and Meghan Markle's newborn daughter, Lilibet Diana. While the couple insisted that they had taken the Queen's permission to use ner nickname, Lilibet, for their daughter, BBC published a report where a "palace source" apparently said that no such permission was sought from the monarch before the use of the name. In the aftermath of the report, which sparked a backlash against Harry and Meghan, a legal representative for the Sussexes sent notice to the BBC and several other outlets denying the report, calling it "false" and "defamatory."

"The Duke spoke with his family in advance of the announcement, in fact, his grandmother was the first family member he called," the Susexes' spokesperson said in a statement. "During that conversation, he shared their hope of naming their daughter Lilibet in her honor. Had she not been supportive, they would not have used the name.” Buckingham Palace has not commented on Lilibet's name. Omid Scobie, ABC News royal contributor, said Queen Elizabeth was "very aware" of Lili's name before it was made public.

"I think what we have here is the press struggling to understand what the conversation was between Harry and the queen," the author of "Finding Freedom," said on 'Good Morning America.' "When we actually speak to those closest to the queen, they do say she was very aware of the decision that was made before the announcement. There is no protocol to follow. But what they did do is let [Queen Elizabeth] know and wait for her response before making any concrete decisions to announce that to the world."
