Piers Morgan is back in the headlines again for making comments about Meghan Markle. First, he criticized the Duchess of Sussex’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey. And now, he’s coming for her next work project.
Markle announced on May 4 that she’s writing her first children’s book, titled The Bench, due out in early June. “The Bench started as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father’s Day, the month after Archie was born,” she said in the book’s press release. “That poem became this story.”
Morgan, because of course he did, took issue with this book and aired his grievances in a Daily Mail column.
“I wonder how much these touching sentiments will resonate with her own family, or her husband’s?” he wrote. “Lest we forget, Ms. Markle has ruthlessly disowned her father, Thomas, and refuses to have anything to do with him despite the fact they now live just 70 miles from each other. She is also reported to have disowned every other Markle, none of whom were invited to her wedding.” (Markle hasn’t explicitly talked about her relationship with her father in quite some time, so take all this with a grain of salt.)
Morgan also took aim at Prince Harry’s reportedly strained relationship with his father, Prince Charles. “He trashed his father Prince Charles in the same [Oprah Winfrey] interview, moaning about how daddy had stopped taking his calls,” Morgan wrote.
It didn’t take long for people on Twitter to come for Morgan. “Can we have a universal ‘Block Piers Morgan Day’?? I will start,” one person tweeted.
Another added, “Anyone else noticed that the only thing keeping Piers Morgan relevant is his unhinged obsession with Meghan and his insatiable desire in whipping up hatred toward her? It’s beyond creepy now. Makes me really uncomfortable.”
