Piers Morgan faces backlash after unbelievable swipe at Meghan Markle

Piers Morgan has been criticised for taking a swipe at Meghan Markle shortly before she and other royals arrived at Westminster Abbey for the Queen's funeral.

Former actress Meghan had been joined by Sophie, Countess of Wessex as they travelled to the Abbey for the state funeral of the late Queen, while Prince Harry walked behind her coffin.

Piers Morgan had been leading the coverage for US based Fox News from outside of Buckingham Palace, with the broadcaster having the perfect spot outside of the official royal residence.

However, the dad-of-four couldn't help but take a pop at Meghan, describing the Duchess of Sussex as a "lost cause".

Reflecting on Harry's upcoming memoir, which details his explosive life story, Piers suggested it could be "very damaging" for his dad, King Charles III.

He added that he hoped Harry would "wake up" before taking a swipe at Meghan.

Piers said: "We've all been following this soap opera drama, the bottom line is that it's hard to ignore them.

"When you have this renegade Royal Family, trying to have their royal cake and eat it.

"But there have been some moments this week where you could have some sympathy with Prince Harry over his treatment as opposed to his disgraced uncle Prince Andrew."

After discussing Harry's memoirs, Piers continued: "I hope something wakes up inside of him, I hope he pops the book.

"She's [Meghan] probably a lost cause in this because she just wants to be rich and famous."

This, however, didn't go down too well with royal enthusiasts with slammed Piers for the timing of his brutal swipe.

Taking to Twitter, one user said: "Piers is like a lover scorned, he just won't let it go & it's becoming a creepy obsession.

A second added: "Unbelievable on today of all days Piers want to take aim at Meghan. He seems to be suffering from a continued unhealthy obsessive disorder with Meghan."

"Give it rest and leave them alone you are so boring, so it’s time for you to keep quiet for once in your life nobody cares what you think or say," fumed a third.

While a fourth penned: "Even on the Queen’s funeral he still has to have a go. It’s time to just shut up Piers we're bored with you spouting the same old twaddle."

However, many fans of the Duchess were not taking this lying down as they praised her for remaining "composed and regal".
