Piers Morgan calls Meghan Markle a 'piece of work', says she 'behaves like a Kardashian, not a member of the royal family'
The 52-year-old host's comments came in light of reports about the cost of the renovation of Meghan and Prince Harry's five-bedroom residence, Frogmore Cottage
Piers Morgan, who is admittedly not a fan of Meghan Markle, has gone on another one of his trademark rants—this time calling the Duchess of Sussex a "piece of work" and comparing her with the Kardashians.
In an interview with LBC Radio, the 54-year-old Morgan, host of ITV Breakfast program 'Good Morning Britain,' did not mince his words as he made his feelings about Meghan abundantly clear.
His comments came in light of reports about the cost of the renovation of Meghan and Prince Harry's five-bedroom residence, Frogmore Cottage. The renovation has reportedly far exceeded original estimates and burned a $3 million-sized hole in taxpayers' pockets.
"Maybe we'll be back here in 20 years and she's turned out to be a fantastic member of the royal family, but there are a lot of worrying signs," he said, according to the Sun. "Not least doing up their house, £2.5m ($3.17m) cost to taxpayers."
"That's the behavior of a Kardashian, not a member of the royal family," he exclaimed. "They've got to be careful."
Morgan wasn't quite done yet. He got a bit more personal and branded Meghan a "piece of work" for "dropping" people without any regard.
"I just think she’s a... I’m afraid she’s a bit of work... [She] drops people as soon she gets someone more important in her life and it’s just my experience," he said.
"I look at the way she treats her family, none of whom were at the wedding," he continued. "Dumps her father. Dumps her first husband. Dumps everyone who is no longer of use to her. It's not a good look."
Morgan's "experience" was one he had previously detailed to the Mirror, stating that the Duchess was a "social climber" who "ghosted" him after having dinner with him, just a day before she met Prince Harry.
"I was friendly with Meghan but she ghosted me," he had said. "I am not impressed. There seems to be a pattern of her doing that to people, it’s a bit worrying. From my personal experience, she is someone I thought I was pretty matey with and 'bang,' she met somebody more important and that was it."
"It is rather poor social climbing. The moment she met Harry she cut everybody off who she thought might be no longer desirable in her friend and family circle," he added. "It is extraordinary behavior, we will see how it all plays out."
He addressed the incident once again on LBC and was adamant that he would never meet her now even if she reached out to him. "I loved 'Suits', got to know her and the other guy on 'Suits', he came on Good Morning Britain, Rick Hoffman, who played Louis Littman on 'Suits'. He dumped me like a sack of spuds too, at her behest, the moment she meets Harry," he said.
"I put her in the cab to meet Harry, never heard from her again. She met somebody more important and that was it, gone, bang, ghosted. I thought it was all a bit pathetic, really. It was a bit of a warning sign because she does it to everyone."
