Piers Morgan Implies Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Got Him Fired

Piers Morgan has suggested Prince Harry and Meghan Markle used mental health claims to get him fired from Good Morning Britain.

The British broadcaster stormed off the set of the ITV breakfast show in March after saying he did not believe the claims made by the Duchess of Sussex in her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

He has since vocalized his support for the royal family on a number of occasions.

In his column for U.K newspaper the Daily Mail, Morgan criticized tennis champion Naomi Osaka for withdrawing from all media interactions because of her mental health.

Osaka said she felt there was "no regard for athlete's mental health," adding that she did not wish to subject herself to "people who doubt me."

Morgan hit out at the sports star claiming that Osaka's only issue was with negative criticism regardless of how "reasonably and fact-based" the comments may be.

He claimed the move had been previously used by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

"This is straight out of the Meghan and Harry playbook of wanting to have the world's largest cake and eating it, by exploiting the media for ruthlessly commercial self-promotion but using mental health to silence any media criticism," he slammed.

The television personality then said mental health is frequently being used as an excuse for "deplorable behavior," citing the couple as an example of this.

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex use it constantly as a protective shield to launch savage attacks on the royal family, and to get journalists like me who don't believe them fired," he wrote.

Newsweek has contacted representatives of Piers Morgan and the Archewell Foundation for comment.

The comments are not the first time Morgan has blasted Prince Harry online.

He previously accused the Duke of Sussex of "constantly abusing" the royal family.

Morgan tweeted his remarks after the Duke of Sussex's candid conversation with Oprah Winfrey in his new docuseries The Me You Can't See.

In the series, Prince Harry claimed his pleas for help to deal with the negative media coverage of his relationship with Meghan were met with "total silence or neglect."

The journalist then shared a story from the Daily Mail, which had the headline: "Harry says royals forcing him to go to Nepal and constant jet-setting became 'hectic to the point of exhaustion.'"

Responding to the news, Morgan wrote: "Oh FFS. Is there no end to Prince Privacy's victimhood tour? Constantly abusing his family, knowing they can't respond, is so pathetic & cowardly. Man up, Harry - and shut up."

After a Twitter user questioned Morgan's "lack of understanding and empathy," he proceeded to brand Prince Harry's behavior "outrageously hypocritical."

Newsweek contacted the Archewell Foundation for comment at the time. They did not respond.
