It has not been an easy news day for the Royals, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle, after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their intention to step back from their duties as “senior members” of the Royal family.
This news comes after the constant backlash from the media, especially, towards Meghan Markle. Some times last year, the Prince made a move to sue the media for “bullying” his wife.
This seems not to be the end of it all, yesterday, after the announcement, Piers Morgan decided to criticize Meghan Markle for the decision the couple made in respect to their stepping down from royal duties.
People say I’m too critical of Meghan Markle – but she ditched her family, ditched her Dad, ditched most of her old friends, split Harry from William & has now split him from the Royal Family.
I rest my case. pic.twitter.com/xgKLTt2Y0Z

This did not go down well for the journalist as many of his followers were quite disappointed at his train of thoughts.
Yes, it’s weird how Piers Morgan is more critical of HRH Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex than Prince Andrew…can’t think why…🤔 pic.twitter.com/zG4iKLG6KW

Why haven’t you been this vocal about Prince Andrew?

You’re obsessed with her and it’s fucking weird.

Would have to disagree with you on this one Piers. They have made the decision as a “family”. It’s not like she has a gun to his head. He wants to protect his wife and his son. I can personally only applaud their choice.

You’ve led a pack of baying wolves who have hounded her at every turn & made her life miserable. And then now you blame her for her husband wanting to protect her?
This is vile Piers. Truly vile

Oh, I don’t know. Why WOULD she want to stick around after enduring (racially motivated) abuse at the hands of the press and British public? Isn’t this what you wanted? She and Harry will no longer be living off tax dollars. They’re financially independent. Why the complaints? 🌚
