Piers Morgan wasted no time in raging at Meghan Markle and the royal family as he returned to Good Morning Britain with Susanna Reid.
The no-nonsense presenter called out the Duke and Duchess for their use of private jets despite campaigning for climate change as well as commenting on Meghan’s relationship with her estranged father, Thomas.
Joined by royal correspondent Robert Jobson and journalist Angela Levin, Piers began: ‘While we were away there was this whole hypocrisy issue of “we want to save the planet, every footprint counts” and it turns out their footprints are on endless private jets.
‘Secondly, there’s this new interview with Meghan’s father, apparently she’s now washed her hands of him completely. He’s never met the baby, he’s never met Harry,’ he continued.
‘On the first point, this attempt by them to be “woke” royals, playing the political card about big issues, it’s not going to fly is it because the royal lifestyle by definition should render itself hypocritical to all that stuff.

‘I have no problem with them having private jets, but I’m not telling everyone to watch their every footprint.’
‘I think they made a mistake when they started lecturing people on climate change, which is very emotive and then jumping on a private jet all over the summer,’ Robert chimed.

Piers then started ranting about Meghan’s relationship with her estranged father Thomas, and continued: ‘This thing with the father seems such a running sore and sadness to me.
‘The idea that the guy who helped bring her up is now no longer a part of her life… Harry’s never even bothered to meet him.’
He continued: ‘I would be more sympathetic to Meghan Markle if I hadn’t also had the experience… I fear she has this thing in her when she chops anyone when they become potentially a bit of a problem.

‘They didn’t even go and see him when he had a heart attack.
‘I still think they should get on one of their private jets, maybe borrow Elton John’s, and go out and see the poor guy.
‘He’s living on his own out there, doesn’t know what’s hit him, he no longer speaks to his daughter, hasn’t met his grandchild.’
