Piers Morgan calls Meghan and Harry greedy hypocrites in brutal dig at baby snap

Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan has taken another brutal swipe at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after they announced they're set to welcome their second child.

Harry and Meghan confirmed the happy news with a monochrome snap taken of them in California, with Meghan showing off her blossoming baby bump.

But whilst many celebrities and fans have shared their congratulations for the happy couple, Piers has had a few words for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

He branded the pair "hypocrites" after the pair stepped back from public life and announced they weren't going to engage with four major British tabloids anymore.

Piers wrote in his Daily Mail column: "For this is yet another example of Meghan and Harry's brazen hypocrisy, and further evidence that they don't have any real desire for privacy.

"They just want the right to use the media to promote themselves when it suits them, and trash and ban them when it doesn't.

"In fact, it's quite clear that the pair of them crave attention and publicity like ravenous jackals gorging on the carcass of a freshly slain gazelle."

Piers also compared Meghan and Harry to reality TV family the Kardashians, saying "publicity is key to their success and bank balance".

He added: "In this regard, they're no different to reality TV celebrities like the Kardashians who don't actually do anything for a living other than sell their 'brand' to the highest bidder.

"It's a self-promotional hustle and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have proven to as effective at it as Kim and her sisters."

Piers continued: "I just find it contemptible that they continue to exploit their royal titles in such a ruthless greedy way without doing any of the hard graft that other royals back home in the UK have to do to earn their keep.

"As I've said many times, they want to have their royal cake and eat it, and they shouldn't be allowed to trade off their royal connections like this."

Piers has no secret of his contempt for the couple, as he branded the pregnancy announcement "cheesy" in a savage tweet as the news was confirmed.

He posted on his social media page: "Harry & Meghan have announced they’re pregnant and released this cheesy photo of themselves to ensure the media gives the story about their private life more prominence – in their latest courageous effort to stop the same media focusing on their private life."

GMB continues tomorrow at 6am on ITV.
