Piers Morgan calls Harry and Meghan 'ego-crazed, deluded leeches,' asks Queen to strip them of titles
Morgan said they wanted 'the glitz, the glamour, the splendor and the stupendous wealth' without earning it and 'want to live off Harry's dad's money.'
'Good Morning Britain' host Piers Morgan has urged the Queen to strip Prince Harry and Meghan Markle of their titles after their decision to "step down" from their royal duties.
In a column for the Daily Mail, Morgan said the Sussex's actions reeked of "pure arrogance, greed, and willful disrespect" and called for the Queen to "unceremoniously strip Harry and Meghan of all their titles with immediate effect and dispatch them to civilian life."
Harry and Meghan shocked Kensington Palace, as well as the world, when they announced on January 8 that, after "many months of reflection and internal discussion," they would take a step back as "senior members of the royal family."
They further said they wanted to work to become "financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty the Queen," something Morgan said was akin to the couple wanting to have their cake and eat it too.
He pointed out that while they said they wanted to become a "progressive force" within the monarchy, they just wanted to be "super-woke celebrities who get to keep all the trappings of royal life without any of the hard, boring bits."
Morgan said they wanted "the glitz, the glamour, the splendor and the stupendous wealth" without earning it and "want to live off Harry's dad's money."
Indeed, while Harry and Meghan have said they plan to move out to North America, they intend to continue living in Frogmore Cottage, which was gifted to them by the Queen and was refurbished to their specifications at a cost of millions of taxpayer dollars, when in the UK.
Furthermore, they also will continue to make use of royal protection and VIP royal travel. They have also said that, in the future, they will get rid of the Royal Rota system in favor of certain journalists who they approve of, something Morgan said "even Vladimir Putin" wouldn't do.
The 'Good Morning Britain' host slammed the couple's decision to make their announcement to the press without notifying anyone in the royal family as well, stating the Queen has "had to suffer the repulsively rude indignity of being treated like a piece of insignificant dirt by her own spoiled brat grandson and his scheming, selfish D-list actress wife."
He said what they were doing was "an earthquake that will shake the very foundations of the Royal Family to the core" and pinned the blame on Meghan, who he said discards people when they are "either no longer of use to her or might be 'problematic' to the bigger prize."
"To put it bluntly, she's an unsavory manipulative social-climbing piece of work who has inveigled her way into Prince Harry's heart and used his blind love as a platform to now destroy everything he once held so dear," he wrote.
"She's caused a tremendous rift between Harry and William," he continued. "She's ruined Harry's reputation with the public as a hugely popular fun, carefree soul, turning him into a miserable-looking, virtue-signaling laughing stock."
He ended the column by once again urging the Queen to "get rid of these whining, ego-crazed, deluded leeches" before it's too late.
