Piers Morgan slams Harry as ‘whiny brat in his mid-30s crying dad won't fund him’ in Tucker Carlson interview
Morgan appeared on Fox Nation with Tucker Carlson to discuss the Sussexes and his departure from ‘Good Morning Britain’
It seems Piers Morgan is still not done with Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle as he again slammed the Duke of Sussex by calling him a “whiny brat”. The 56-year-old journalist appeared on Fox Nation -- Fox News' streaming service -- to discuss the Sussexes and his departure from ‘Good Morning Britain’ with Tucker Carlson. Though Morgan started out by saying nice things about Harry, he changed his tone when he was asked, “what has happened” to Harry after he bravely served the Army for a decade.
He told Carlson, “But what's happened to that guy? He's turned into a whiny brat. He's in his mid-30s crying his dad won't fund him financially.” Morgan was referring to the 36-year-old’s remarks made in Oprah Winfrey’s interview, where he claimed, “I was totally cut off financially. My family cut me off – if I didn’t have what my mum left me, we wouldn’t have been able to do this. All I wanted to do was keep my family safe.”

In the explosive March 7 tell-all, Harry also said, “We didn’t have a plan. [The Netflix deal] was suggested by somebody else by the point of where my family literally cut me off financially, and I had to afford security for us. [They cut me off] In the first quarter of 2020.” However, as per reports, Harry’s financial condition was not so bad as he inherited around $13 million (£10 million) and priceless pieces of jewelry from his late mother, Lady Diana. The soon-to-be-father of a baby girl also reportedly received nearly $9 million (£7million) from the Queen and other inheritances, which in total makes him worth $49 million (£36 million). Not just that, the royal couple has also signed huge deals with Netflix and Spotify after stepping down from their senior royal duties.
Meanwhile, during the interview with Carlson, Morgan also spoke about his exit from the ITV show after he received a huge backlash from people for criticizing Meghan’s claim of being depressed while serving the Palace. The former actress also claimed that she felt suicidal while being pregnant with Archie, which Morgan disbelieved. The broadcaster stated, “I was hired by ITV to do the morning show because they were struggling with the ratings, they wanted me to shake things up… I was a highly opinionated person and they knew that. Over five years we trebled the ratings and the last day ironically was the first day we beat the BBC. Instead I was corralled into a position that ‘You've got to apologize… or your position is untenable.'”
Several people on Twitter have reacted to Morgan’s interview with Carlson as one user tweeted, “It should come as a surprise to NO ONE that Piers Morgan will be doing his first interview (since getting sh*t-canned by Good Morning Britain) with the one and only Tucker Carlson. Racists gotta stick together, apparently.” Another person said, “Tucker Carlson talks with Piers Morgan, A cunning Fox diversity plan, Should get new viewers, Who like truth skewers, Right wing fan interviews right wing man.” “Omg...
