MEGHAN MARKLE and Prince Harry’s recent statements about the “uncomfortable past” of the Commonwealth have sparked fury with ITV host Piers Morgan who lashed out at the couple for “attacking” the Queen.
Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, have called for the Commonwealth to “acknowledge the past” even if it is “uncomfortable”. Speaking via video-link to young leaders from the Queens Commonwealth Trust, the Duke and Duchess pointed to the Commonwealths past “of colonialism and the subjugation of peoples”. ITV Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan was furious at the comments, claiming that the couple were deliberately “picking a fight” with the Queen.
He said: “There’s a serious point to this which is that these two quit the Royal Family because they wanted to go and do their own thing in Hollywood.
“That’s fine. It’s their choice, it’s their life.
“But if they’re going to start attacking the Commonwealth, and the Queen is the head of the Commonwealth, then they’re picking a proper political fight.
“Therefore they put themselves back in the news agenda.”
