The former Good Morning Britain host ‘Piers Morgan’ was covering Queen Elizabeth’s funeral on Monday night for US Fox News with Sharon Osbourne, and the pair soon started discussing the royal family split.
“We’ve all been following this soap opera drama,” Morgan said, according to the Mirror. “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.”
“Of course, they’re not a racist family, and I think that Meghan Markle, by saying that, endorsed by Harry, managed to smear the entire royal family,” Morgan said, reporting for Fox News. “I find it quite hard to forgive that, given she did that right after Prince Philip was taken into hospital knowing that none of them were able to respond because they don’t respond to this kind of thing.”
“The last two years of the queen’s life were constantly having to deal with these two going public, attacking the royal family and the monarchy, which of course is an institution which she headed and which affords them the ability to make all this money,” he continued. “So I think, you know, I find it, when I see them, particularly Meghan Markle, when I see her at all these events this week, I think a lot of British people find it very hard to stomach because they think, ‘Well, you made the Queen’s life so difficult the last two years of her life.”
Sharon Osbourne went on to say that she sees Prince Harry’s sadness over being apart from his family, only to return for his grandmother’s death.
“I get very sad, and part of this, my sadness, is looking at Harry looking so sad and really being where he belongs with the rest of the royal family. He’s sort of made himself the black sheep,” she said. “For me, it’s heartbreaking because he belongs beside his brother, and the country adored him. And they did Meghan, too. And I just don’t know how you give up your country for celebrity. He said he wanted an ordinary life, but he’s become a celebrity, and, you know, mixes with all the big celebrities, and it’s just such a different life. I don’t really understand it. Everything they do is talk about the royal family.”
Sharon said she hopes Prince Harry and Meghan will stop talking about the Royal family.
