Over the previous several months, there has been no love lost between Piers Morgan and royal couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and now the vocal celebrity has spoken out once more.

Piers Morgan has slammed Meghan Markle and Prince Harry for allegedly “hijacking” the Queen’s moniker for their daughter.

He advised Harry and Meghan to follow the queen’s example and “pipe down” about their personal or family issues.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their second child, Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, into the world earlier this month.

“She’s a remarkable person who puts duty first,” Morgan said of Queen Elizabeth, “and it seems to me that Meghan and Harry don’t even understand the concept of duty.”

He called Meghan “someone who is palpably a liar” while addressing their explosive appearance with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year.

“I think it’s time those two [Meghan and Harry] gave up their titles, stopped whining 24/7 and try and take a leaf out of the book of the Queen, whose nickname Lilibet they’ve hijacked for their daughter,” Piers told Sean Hannity’s American show on Fox News.

“Take a little tip from the Queen, less is more.

“If you want to be a royal, less is more. We’re hearing too much of your yapping, too much of your whining, it’s time to pipe down.”

Morgan left Good Morning Britain after Meghan claimed that members of the Royal family were racist towards her and her unborn child while she was pregnant in an interview.

Morgan received a strong public backlash, with many accusing him of racism.

Piers justified his criticism of Meghan, 39, explaining: “Cancel culture, Twitter mobs come for you and say, ‘If you don’t believe Meghan Markle, you are a racist.

“To which I say, ‘I’ve never said a racist thing about Meghan Markle or anybody else’.

“It has nothing to do with her skin colour and everything to do her inability to tell the truth and her rank hypocrisy.”

Piers said he “didn’t believe a word” Meghan said about feeling suicidal during her pregnancy with Archie and being ignored by the palace.
