Piers Morgan slams 'hypocritical' Meghan, highlights how she skipped Trump's visit but found time to guest-edit Vogue during maternity leave
'Good Morning Britain' host Piers Morgan called out Meghan Markle for her editing of Vogue's September issue and accused her of caring only about promoting 'brand Meghan'
'Good Morning Britain' presenter Piers Morgan has slammed Meghan Markle, 37, for having edited the September issue of Vogue despite her recent "diva" demand for privacy.
In his column for the DailyMail, Morgan pointed out that Meghan had avoided meeting POTUS Donald Trump on his state visit to the UK as she was on maternity leave but managed to find time to edit Vogue's issue.
Last month, Morgan had called the new mother "shameful" for neither attending the state banquet or D-Day commemorations during Trump's visit.
According to Morgan, Meghan is "being about as political as any royal has ever been" by snubbing Trump and then choosing "15 female trailblazers who promote equality and open-mindedness" for the magazine cover.
"Being a royal means you stay out of politics," Morgan added.
He also took an issue with Meghan's choice of "radical, liberal" stars on the cover and said that her main job was to promote Britain like all other members of the royal family. "That's why they get the taxpayer-funded palaces, servants and gilded lifestyle," he shared.
The cover features the likes of teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg and New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern.
The magazine also contains a conversation between Meghan and former first lady of the United States, Michelle Obama.
Morgan noted how only five women on the list were British.
He accused the Duchess of Sussex of caring more about promoting "brand Meghan" than being a royal. "She constantly bleats about privacy but also wants to edit magazines to promote herself and tell us how to lead our lives," he added.
Earlier this month, Meghan had sparked outrage at Wimbledon after fans were not allowed to take photos of her because she was there in a "private capacity" to watch her friend Serena Williams play.
New parents Prince Harry and Meghan had chosen to keep their son Archie's christening private and did not reveal the godparents—a blunder in the eye of the British public.
Recently, the Duchess of Sussex had hinted that life in the public eye "isn't easy" when she opened up to rapper Pharrell Williams at the 'Lion King' premiere in London.
