Piers Morgan Reignites Feud With Meghan and Harry | 22 Words

Piers Morgan has, quite predictably, reignited his feud with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle...

And has viciously slammed them for trying to frame the royal family as a bunch of "heartless racists."

Yikes. Scroll on to hear what the journalist had to say...

Now, we all know where this started, don't we?

Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, sat down on March 7th for an explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey to tell their side of the story and to explain their reasonings behind stepping down from the royal family.

The claims that both Meghan and Harry came out with were mind-blowing, to say the least.

​Ranging from racism accusations to a huge lack of mental health support when Meghan was reportedly feeling suicidal, the royal family was portrayed in a very bad light.

The seventeen million people who tuned in to watch the exclusive interview worldwide just haven't been sure what to believe...

And there's been quite the divide in opinions online.

Of course, millions have rallied behind the couple...

And people have been expressing their sympathy for Harry and Meghan over what they've have had to endure in the last 5 years.

But of course, many others haven't been as sympathetic...

And Piers Morgan is one of those people.

Now, we all know that the British journalist has had a personal vendetta against Meghan for quite some time...

And it all seemingly started back in 2016, just weeks before Meghan went public with Harry.

The pair went out for a drink together while Meghan was in London...

And it was clear that Piers was charmed by the Suits actress... and this tweet is solid proof of that fact!

He later wrote a column about his conversation with Meghan, saying he wasn't "surprised he's [Prince Harry] fallen for her, or that he's so ferociously protecting their relationship."

"Meghan Markle is perfect princess material. Just put any proposal in writing."

But it wasn't until Harry and Meghan's engagement when things started to go a little pear-shaped on the Piers Morgan front.

The journalist wasn't invited to the wedding, despite him repeatedly bugging "his friend" Meghan on Twitter for an invite.

This is when Meghan supposedly "ghosted" him...

And Piers hasn't heard anything from Meghan since... something that's clearly touched a nerve.

Just days after Harry and Meghan tied the knot in 2018, Piers angrily penned his first of many abusive columns against the pair, accusing Meghan of "scripting" the perfect day for her wedding and turning in "an Oscar-winning performance."

The broadcaster even went on to admit his feelings were hurt from not being invited to the wedding.

"She ghosted me, Ryan!" when host Ryan Tubridy asked him what happened on The Late Late Show in September 2018.

"Meghan Markle ghosted me. I really liked her — this is why it hurts. She's just a slight social climber, I'm afraid."

Well, this is when things really started to get out of hand...

And over the last 3 years, Piers' clear obsession with Meghan grew beyond belief, with his bitterness over her snubbing of him escalating into anger.

Alongside Twitter, Piers would use his position as co-host of Good Morning Britain - ​one of the most-watched breakfast shows in the U.K - to make his opinion of the Sussexes very apparent.

He even invited Meghan's estranged father, Thomas Markle, on the show numerous times to try and tarnish her name even further.

Piers' obsession was becoming concerning...

And it was starting to become a form of bullying - something that most definitely contributed to Harry and Meghan stepping down from the royal family after being relentlessly attacked by the press and public figures like Piers.

And just when people thought his obsession couldn't get any worse...

Harry and Meghan's interview with Oprah aired on March 7th, which sent their critics - including Piers - into a media frenzy.

Piers was furious over what he heard in the interview...

And he viciously attacked Meghan on both Twitter and Good Morning Britain in a manner he had never before.

From referring to her suicidal thoughts as a way of "attention-seeking" to laying into her for the way she dressed during the interview...

Piers did not hold back, which resulted in many accused him of bullying the former senior royal, even after knowing the torment she underwent by the press (who he is still an editor for, may I add!)

His remarks were also criticized by his co-presenters and on social media, with ITV being called "hypocritical" for allowing him to do so while simultaneously running a mental health campaign.

People began arguing back and defending the Sussexes...

Which resulted in Piers storming off the set of GMB after weatherman Alex Beresford called him out for relentlessly attacking Meghan for "cutting him out."

People weren't impressed by what they were hearing...

And within a matter of days, more than 41,000 official complaints were made against Piers for his behavior on GMB... including, as it was later revealed, one made by Meghan herself!

This resulted in Piers being advised to step down from his role as co-host of GMB.

But in typical Piers Morgan fashion, he wasn't going to go quietly or without an apology!

"On Monday, I said I didn't believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview. I've had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don't. If you did, OK. Freedom of speech is a hill I'm happy to die on. Thanks for all the love, and hate. I'm off to spend more time with my opinions," he tweeted upon the news of his resignation along with a picture of former Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

Piers has been keeping a relatively low profile since leaving GMB...

And has been using his social media platforms to promote his best-selling book, Wake Up, rather than spew abuse at Harry and Meghan.

But now, he's broken his silence...

And his latest tweet is, sadly, everything we could have imagined from the seething journalist.

He has, yet again, attacked Harry and Meghan over their racism claims against the royal family.

Penning an angry tweet along with a picture of Queen Elizabeth, Piers wrote:

"There's a very deliberate & malicious campaign being perpetrated by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to smear, defame and trash Britain, our Monarchy & the Royal Family as a bunch of heartless racists. It's disgusting. Time to stand up for our Queen."

Here's the tweet:

What do you think? Do you think Piers is correct about the British monarchy being tarnished by the interview? Or do you think his obsession with Meghan has simply gotten the better of him?
