LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM: Piers Morgan has been called out online after he decided to bring in late Princess Diana while proving why King Charles is the perfect one to rule the UK as the new monarch. Writing an opinion piece for The Sun, the English reporter said, “None of us can even begin to imagine what King Charles III has been going through since the Queen died last Thursday, either on a personal or professional level.”

In the essay titled — ‘Charles is a man wrestling with the weight of history and winning. He’s proving all the doubters wrong… even Diana’ — Morgan mentioned that “although Charles had a very, very long time to prepare for this moment, the longest apprenticeship for any job in recorded employment history, nothing can adequately prepare anyone for the sudden, dramatic propulsion from Monarch-in-waiting to King.”

He then went on to admire the 73-year-old King by writing, “Yet look how magnificently he’s handled it. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a single public figure rise to momentous occasion with such astonishing poise, sure-footedness, class and clarity. From the moment we first saw our new King following his mother’s passing, he has hit the pitch-perfect note time and again.”

But the 57-year-old broadcaster did not stop there as he also involved Diana into it. First, Morgan referred to Charles’ address to the nation as His Majesty in in Westminster Hall, which he claimed to be “a powerful, beautifully crafted speech that was humble, sincere, heartfelt, human and profoundly inspiring.”

The writer then pointed to the infamous Panorama interview of the late Princess of Wales. He noted: “It reflected many concerns about whether Charles, once he finally got the chance to be King, would be any good at it. The sceptics included his own ex-wife Princess Diana who said in that now infamous Panorama interview that she thought Charles would struggle. ‘Because I know the character, I would think that the top job, as I call it, would bring enormous limitations to him, and I don't know whether he could adapt to that.’”

Morgan declared in his piece for The Sun, “Diana was wrong. All the doubters were wrong. The more I’ve seen of King Charles III in the past few days, the more impressive he has been, from his stirring address to Parliament to his supremely dignified vigil by the Queen’s coffin in Scotland,” before adding: “This is a man wrestling with the weight of history - and winning. And the public agree with me.”

Despite Morgan’s insistence that “the public agree with” him, people online appeared to not be happy with his analysis. A user Tweeted, “Please keep Diana out of this, bottom of Diana shoe is worth more than the whole royal family put together.” The second user questioned, “Sir, why do you rush in where angels fear to tread? Why this craving to speak ill of these great women who won't answer you?” The third one wrote: “Diana has been dead for 25 years what’s he proving to her? Maybe he’s the reason she’s dead.” “Your meant to be a Royalist Piers. The queen wouldn’t appreciate you dragging up Diana during a time of mourning,” the fourth user added.

A Tweet read, “I am not British, but to mention Princess Diana in how good will be King Charles III, makes nonsense. People change and maybe when Princess Diana said this, prince Charles was not ready to be a king. Let's see what time will show. Until then good luck to King Charles III!” Another Tweet stated: “Um, being that Charles ended up marrying his mistress, it doesn't seem like Diana was wrong about him at all, Piers - best not to open that old wound at this particulate moment.”
