Harry and Meghan have just concluded their very successful tour of Africa and are on their way back to the UK where less happy things await them.
Harry came out in support of his wife with a moving letter that details his concern for her safety and his unhappiness surrounding how the press has handled their relationship.
You’d think that all considered, The Daily Mail would lay low for a while and avoid any negative Meghan and Harry stories. Instead, they gave the floor to human dumpster fire, Piers Morgan.
Piers starts off by saying that he intended to write a positive column about Meghan and Harry and their recent tour of South Africa, but he just couldn’t get past the court case and Harry’s letter, or as he puts it, the “hysterically over-the-top statement that the Sussexes decided to release to accompany their lawsuit”.
It is honestly one of the most extraordinary rants I’ve ever read from anyone in the Royal Family, and one of the most inexplicable.
Why would they do this right when they have enjoyed a week of universal acclaim? Why declare war on the press who’ve just spent seven days saying great things about them?
Why petrol-bomb glowingly positive end-of-tour reports with a furnace of negative fury?
Okay, the first thing you need to know is that the letter, which you can read here, is in no way hysterical. It’s quite formal.
Piers goes on to repeat his prior rants about the royals, including his accusations that they’re being hypocritical with their stance on global warming, and that they refused to share pictures of the baby just after it was born. In his words:
They see themselves as poor, downtrodden, massively misunderstood victims of horrible press ‘bullies’.
…Oh please. Give me a bloody break, your royal highness!
The old Prince Harry, the courageous soldier and fun-loving party boy, would never have spewed such sanctimonious guff.
But sadly, he’s been Meghan-ed and that means when he’s not pontificating piously about progressive woke issues, he’s playing the victim card.
And thus Piers proved the ‘bullying press’ thing he was trying to disprove. But by all means, continue:
I understand why Harry dislikes the press after what happened to his mother, truly I do. Her death must have been incredibly hard for him to take as a 12-year-old boy.
But let’s be very clear – the press didn’t kill Diana, a speeding drunk-driver killed Diana.
And if she hadn’t recklessly abandoned her usual royal protection officers and drivers, she’d probably still be alive today.
So you’re now blaming Diana for her own death? That’s not going to go down well.
Look, when Piers goes off like this it can usually be traced to a single event – that time Meghan ghosted him. He’s really cut up about that and if you look at his last few rants about her, which you can read here, here and here, you’ll notice that he brings it up again and again (and again).
So let’s see if it comes up yet again.
As I’ve often said, I have little time for Meghan after she ghosted me as a friend the moment she first met Harry. It signified a worrying social-climbing character trait that has seen her ditch many friends and almost all her family if she feels they may threaten her ferociously ambitious rise up the celebrity ladder.
Aaaaand there it is – the real reason Piers rushes home to his laptop at every opportunity to offload on the royal couple.
You can read the rest of his long, rambling diatribe here.
As I’ve often said, Piers – let it go.
