Piers Morgan slams Meghan Markle and Prince Harry for list telling people to help families as Prince Philip in hospital

PIERS Morgan today slammed Meghan Markle and Prince Harry for telling people to help families while Prince Philip remains in hospital.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex yesterday sent out a "list of good deeds" for Brits to do in the lead up to International Women's Day, as the Duke of Edinburgh moved hospitals for further heart checks.

Meghan and Harry's list, posted on the Archewell website, offers suggestions for "real acts of compassion for the women in your life and in your community".

It includes a mixture of practical examples: "Pick up the phone and check in on a friend,""order from a woman-led restaurant" and "make a meal for a woman in your community".

One section also gives advice on 'Family care,' telling readers: "Achieve birth justice for all moms, not just some," and "help more families access basic necessities".


Hitting back, Piers blasted the "warning list," telling viewers: "We've got a little warning sheet sent out to all of us about what we need to do on that day to pay respect to women.

While Susanna Reid told her co-host the hints are "a list of positive actions to support women," Piers insisted: "You shouldn't need to be told how to treat women".

He added: "The Queen's a woman, she's 94 and her husband is 99 and he is seriously ill in hospital.

"Maybe rather than sending out sheets about how we should treat women, on International Women's Day which is on Monday, cancel your interview, Meghan.

"Maybe you should just cancel your interview which is obviously going to cause great distress to your mother-in-law and your father-in-law is seriously ill in hospital."

He went on to ask the Duke of Sussex: "Harry, what do you feel about this Harry? This little checklist of how to show people respect, check in and see how they are?

"How does that sit Harry with you? Mr Privacy, who's about to spill all the beans and whine away while his grandfather is seriously ill in hospital."

The presenter's comments came after Harry and Meghan were last night urged to think of poorly Prince Philip and delay their bombshell interview with Oprah, set to air this weekend.

Two trailers promising “shocking” royal revelations were released as the frail Duke, 99, moved hospital for heart checks.

Philip has been in hospital for a fortnight being treated for an infection.

He was moved to St Bartholomew’s, London, for testing and observation for a pre-existing heart condition, Buckingham Palace said.

At the same time, two preview clips of Meghan and Harry's Oprah interview have been released, with many calling out the 'bad timing'.

Penny Junor, who wrote Prince Harry, Brother, Soldier, Son, said: “It’s bad timing when they’re going to be saying ‘poor us’.”

Another senior royal source asked: “Why are they doing it?”

Of the explosive TV chat, Piers said this morning: "It's going to be a two hour whine-athon."

He added: "People know my views, I find it utterly nauseating. I think it's going to be extremely bad for this country, the way that she in particular will portray us. I think it's going to be fascinating to see how hard Oprah goes."

The “primetime special” with Meghan and Harry was initially set to last 90 minutes, but CBS have now reportedly extended that to two hours.
