Piers Morgan blasts Meghan Markle and ‘puppet’ Prince Harry held ‘hostage’ in the US

The Good Morning Britain host got fired up yet again about the Sussexes. Mr Morgan claimed Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, has “some robotic mechanism” she uses to control Prince Harry.

He said: “The endless videos where he sits or stands by her side looking slightly vacant-eyed remind me of hostage videos each time they appear – she does most of the talking and he’s like a nodding puppet.

“It’s almost like she’s got some robotic mechanism which makes his mouth move but the whole thing is just very sad.”

Mr Morgan said his views towards the Duchess of Sussex soured after she was “quite rude” to him.

The TV host claimed that the Duchess ignored him after he gave her some media advice.

He told Australia’s Daily Telegraph: “I was giving her media advice and another member of the cast of Suits and she asked if she could come and have a drink with me at my local pub and we met up and we had a really good time, and I thought she was really nice actually.

“And then I literally put her in a cab to a dinner that she was going to and she met Harry at that dinner, and I never heard from her again. I thought that was quite rude.”

Mr Morgan’s most recent jab at the couple came after he said the pair should be stripped of their royal titles.

He made the remarks following the Sussexes’ appearance on a video where they urged US citizens to vote in the presidential election.

During the video, the Duchess said: “We’re just six weeks out from Election Day and today is National Voter Registration Day.

“Every four years we are told the same thing, that this is the most important election of our lifetime. But this one is.”

She added: “When we vote, our values are put into action and our voices are heard.

“Your voice is a reminder that you matter, because you do, and you deserve to be heard.”

Mr Morgan blasted the couple and said the video implied they were suggesting viewers should vote for Donald Trump’s election competitor, Joe Biden.

Writing in the Daily Mail, he said: “Although they never mentioned Biden’s name, it is crystal clear whose side they’re on and it’s not the guy sitting in the White House tweeting hateful disingenuous rhetoric 24/7.

“By expressing themselves in such a brazenly partisan manner, they’ve crossed a massive line which should now have serious consequences for the couple who specialise in wanting their royal cake and the freedom to eat it.

“The Royals don’t do politics. Not publicly, anyway.”

He added: “It’s one of the cast-iron rules of being a member of the Royal Family – that you don’t spout off your own political opinions for public consumption because it would damage the integrity of the Monarchy.”

Mr Morgan claimed that the Queen must strip the couple of their royal titles.

He wrote: “So, Meghan and Harry have now left the Queen with no choice: she must strip them of their titles before they do even further damage.

“The integrity and neutrality of the Monarchy demands it.”

The Sussexes stepped down as senior members of the Royal Family earlier this year.

But the couple still have a number of official titles despite their exit from royal life.
