In a recent episode of his talk show, Piers Morgan, the UK's famously outspoken TV presenter, once again drew attention with his characteristic blend of humor and criticism, this time targeting Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Known for his unfiltered opinions, Morgan couldn't resist a jab at the couple, ironically dubbing them his "favourite people" while simultaneously scrutinizing their actions regarding their daughter Lilibet's name. Morgan's comments came in light of revelations from a new book by author Robert Hardman, which delves into the inner workings of the British Royal Family, especially the late Queen Elizabeth II.
Hardman's book suggests that the Queen was less than pleased with Harry and Meghan's decision to name their daughter Lilibet, a personal nickname of the Queen, historically shared only among her closest family members. "The irony in Morgan's tone was unmistakable as he dissected the claims about the royal family's reaction to the naming of Harry and Meghan's daughter," said Morgan on his show.
"Lilibet, the Queen's private nickname, cherished and exclusive, became a topic of public discourse, fueling yet another controversy for the Suss-xes."
Morgan Accuses Royal Couple
Joining the discussion, guest commentator Kat Timpf echoed Morgan's sentiments, focusing on the couple's strained familial relationships.
Timpf criticized Harry and Meghan for exploiting family secrets for personal gain, implying that their actions have tarnished the traditional values of trust and confidentiality typically upheld in family dynamics. In response, Morgan did not hold back, accusing Harry and Meghan of fabricating stories.
"They lied about it, I mean repeatedly. Most of this stuff seems to be untrue," he stated, reflecting a common criticism of the couple's public narratives. Hardman's book further intensifies the debate by including accounts from palace staff, one of whom claimed to have seen the Queen "as angry as I'd ever seen her." This stark contrast to the Suss-xes' claim that the Queen had blessed the name Lilibet adds another layer of complexity to the ongoing saga of Harry and Meghan's relationship with the Royal Family.
