Meghan Markle fans SLAM Good Morning Britain’s Piers Morgan for ‘vulgar’ comments about Prince Harry’s girlfriend
Piers Morgan has come under fire from Good Morning Britain viewers for a comment he made about Meghan Markle.
Furious fans have branded the host “vulgar” after he was seen discussing Prince Harry’s girlfriend on the show.
On Good Morning Britain on Monday, Piers Morgan and co-host Susanna Reid spoke about Meghan Markle’s appearance at the Invictus Games in Toronto.
The occasion marked the first time the Suits actress has been seen in public at the same event as her royal beau.
The pair weren’t pictured together, however, and instead were seen sitting eighteen rows away from each other.
Speaking about their decision to sit separately, Piers said: “All he’s done is cause a massive distraction. I wish I could advise the royals. Harry, this is what you should have done, mate. Two days ago, when you got to Toronto, you should have taken Meghan out for dinner and posed for pictures. You should have given them what they want.
“It looks ridiculous to not have your girlfriend sitting next to you because some bloke at the Palace said you shouldn’t.”
Piers continued: “It’s just common sense really isn’t it? When have you ever been to any important event where you are literally 50 metres away from the woman you’re having s*x with? It’s ridiculous!”
The comment cause Susanna to step in, asking Piers: “How did get to 12 minutes past seven, and you’re saying that?
“Couldn’t you have put that it a nicer way? Couldn’t you have said they’re just sharing a room together? Or that they’re intimate?”
“I am just very aware that there are children watching! All I can say, Piers, is that you will never get a job advising the Royal Family!” the furious host added.
Viewers at home seemed to agree with Susanna as they rushed to social media to slam Piers for his words.
Taking to Twitter, one wrote: “@GMB Piers your mouth can be real vulgar. Think before you speak. At this time of the morning. Children!”
While another posted: “#GMB A bit wrong saying that Piers! Seriously should have sat together though.”
“@GMB @piersmorgan @susannareid100 Piers Morgan out of order this morning for dissing royals #noneed,” added a third.
Good Morning Britain continues weekdays at 6am on ITV.
