GOOD MORNING BRITAIN hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid were debating the royal christening today. Those tuning in were not impressed when Piers suggested Meghan Markle return to America.
Good Morning Britain returned to ITV this morning with Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid back presenting. It wasn’t long before Piers went on a rant about the private christening of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, which took place on Saturday.
It came as two official photographs were released by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to the public, after they had decided to have a private ceremony with no press.
Piers slammed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s decision and suggested Meghan “go back to America” if she wanted to lead a private life.
However, those watching the popular TV show slammed the presenter for his opinion and insisted he is “obsessed” with the Duchess.
“You’re public people, all of you!” Piers began hitting out at the royal couple. “In that moment [Royal christening], you’re public people. Stop your squealing about privacy, we don’t want to hear it.
“If you want to be private, go back to America and live privately, it’s pretty straight forward.”
Interjecting, co-star Susanna defended: “They don’t have to go back to America by the way.”
“She does, she’s American!” The journalist argued.
Susanna reiterated: “They don’t have to go back. She’s [Meghan] married an Englishman!”
But Piers continued to rant: “She doesn’t want to be a British public figure in the Royal family, go back to America.”
“She wants to live here!” Susanna added but Piers argued: “It’s a joke.”

Taking to Twitter to discuss Piers’ tirade, viewers slammed the presenter over his furious tirade about Meghan and Prince Harry.
One viewer said: “He’s unhealthily obsessed about her. It’s off putting and not entertaining at all. #GMB.”
“He’s bloody obsessed with her!! @piersmorgan just leave her alone – YAWN #gmb,” someone else remarked.
A third added: “I’m so bored hearing about Meghan and Harry #gmb,” while another said: “It is so stressful to watching you in the morning @piersmorgan. This is your opinion but not everyone has to hear you go on and on. Just let it please go.”
While others agreed with the controversial presenter, with someone writing: “@gmb @piersmorgan I love Piers hahahaha awesome.”
“@GMB @piersmorgan You’re right this time,” another viewer remarked.
