Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, and Piers Morgan, a controversial television presenter, have a complicated history. Morgan has been outspoken in his criticism of the royal family, and Harry has been a frequent target of his attacks.
Their feud began in earnest in 2015, when Morgan criticized Harry for his behavior during a trip to Las Vegas. Morgan called Harry a “spoiled brat” and accused him of embarrassing the royal family.
Harry responded to Morgan’s criticism in a 2016 interview, saying that he didn’t take Morgan seriously and that he was entitled to his opinion.
The Oprah Interview
Their feud came to a head in March 2021, when Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, sat down for an interview with Oprah Winfrey. During the interview, Harry and Meghan made several explosive claims about the royal family, including accusations of racism and neglect.
Morgan was quick to criticize Harry and Meghan’s claims, calling them “disgusting” and “untrue.” He also accused Meghan of lying and said that he didn’t believe her claims of suicidal thoughts.
After a heated exchange on live television, Morgan stormed off the set of his show, “Good Morning Britain,” and later resigned from the program.
The fallout from the Oprah interview and Morgan’s subsequent resignation has been intense. Supporters of Harry and Meghan have praised them for speaking out about their experiences, while critics have accused them of betraying the royal family.
Meanwhile, Morgan’s departure from “Good Morning Britain” has sparked a debate about freedom of speech and the role of the media in reporting on the royal family.
It’s unclear what the future holds for Harry and Morgan’s relationship. Some have speculated that Harry may try to reconcile with Morgan, while others believe that the two will remain at odds.
Regardless of their personal relationship, it’s clear that Harry and Morgan will continue to be public figures and subjects of media attention for years to come.
