Prince Harry ditched his family for Meghan's movie career, says Piers Morgan: 'They want to be royal Kardashians'
Piers Morgan has once again spoken out his mind about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's decision to step away from royal duties, stating they were aiming to be "royal Kardashians" and that they had "ditched it all for the big bucks."
Harry recently spoke out for the first time following his and Meghan's shocking announcement regarding their status in the royal family, telling supporters at a dinner at the Sentebale Charity in London that he had "no other option" but to quit.
He asked those gathered to disregard what they had seen, heard, or read from the media, insisting "the UK is home and a place that I love" and how "that will never change" before adding that he and Meghan "still share the same values and feelings towards the people of the UK."
Harry spoke about the excitement he and Meghan felt when they began their journey together but also a "great sadness" he felt at the situation becoming so dire. He seemed to pin the blame on the UK's media and tabloids by claiming they were a "powerful force."
However, Morgan was having none of it, and in a column for the Daily Mail, he defended the media and said they were only doing their job by pointing out Harry's and Meghan's blatant hypocrisy. "We shamefully refused to let them lecture us about the environment AND use private jets like taxis!" he wrote. "And we had the audacity to think a $500,000 star-studded, baby-shower party in New York was a tad inappropriate given that Harry and Meghan were busy urging us on Twitter that same week to pay more attention to poor people."
Meanwhile, Harry had further added saying, "What I want to make clear is, we're not walking away, and we certainly aren't walking away from you," he affirmed. "I will continue to be the same man who holds his country dear and dedicates his life to supporting the causes, charities and military communities that are so important to me."
Not settling for the Duke of Sussex's claims, Morgan said, "Oh, and we shockingly suggested that if you’re going to have the taxpayers fork out $3 million on refurbishing your home, you should probably not hide photos and details of your son's birth or stop the public taking your picture at Wimbledon," he added.
He rubbished the idea that the media had been racist towards Meghan and said they all "fell over ourselves for 18 months to say how fantastic it was to have a bi-racial woman enter the Royal Family," before sarcastically apologizing for "holding these two rich, privileged public figures to any kind of accountability."
Morgan said the Sussexes were "a pair of spoiled, entitled, hypocritical brats who decided to hold the Queen and Monarchy to ransom so they could have their royal cake and eat it" and praised the Queen for not letting them succeed with their "half-in, half-out scenario."
The 'Good Morning Britain' host said the couple wanted to flog themselves to the highest bidders like "grubby tiara-clad second-hand car salesmen" and that they were aiming to be "royal Kardashians."
He slammed Harry for abandoning "the Queen, the Monarchy, the military, and his country" before concluding with, "Spare me all your crocodile patriotic dutiful tears, Harry. You’ve ditched it all for the big bucks and your wife's movie career."
