PIERS Morgan has branded Meghan Markle and Prince Harry "deluded clowns" and urged The Queen to "strip them of their royal titles."
The Good Morning Britain host shared his immediate reaction to Megxit in an excerpt of his new book Wake Up: Why The World Has Gone Nuts which appeared in The Mail on Sunday today.
When the news broke that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were "stepping down" as senior working royals in January, Piers took issue with the statement on their "glitzy new" Sussex Royal website.
In the statement, the Duke and Duchess said they wanted to carve out a "progressive" role within the monarchy - but Piers claims this was just a way out to get out of "tedious" royal engagements.
He raged: "In other words, they want to be super-woke Royals (with all the ‘do as we say not as we do’ hectoring hypocrisy they’ve already brought to that status) who get to keep all the trappings of Royal life without any of the hard, boring bits.
"I’ve seen some disgraceful Royal antics in my time, but for pure arrogance, entitlement, greed, and wilful disrespect, nothing has quite matched this nonsense."
Urging Her Majesty to strip Harry and Meghan of their royal status, he continued: "If I were the Queen, I would unceremoniously strip these deluded clowns of all their titles with immediate effect and despatch them back into civilian life."
Although the couple have kept their HRH titles, they are not allowed to use them because they no longer formally represent The Queen.
What's more, Prince Harry was stripped of all his military titles as part of the deal - which Meghan allegedly told a friend was "so unnecessary".
In return for not using their HRH, the couple are free to make any commercial deals they want - and signed a £112m deal with Netflix earlier this year.
In his new book, Piers hits back at critics who said he's "obsessed" with Meghan.
He continued: "My criticisms have been centred around their hypocrisy:
"Meghan having a $500,000 celebrity-fuelled baby-shower party in New York, including a lift on George’s Clooney jet, on the same day she and Harry tweeted a plea for people to think of the poor; the ridiculous lengths they went to hide basic details of their baby Archie’s birth from the public that pays for much of their lavish lives; and the way they used Sir Elton John’s private jet like a taxi service after repeatedly lecturing us all about the importance of watching our carbon footprint."
Last week, Piers blasted Harry for "poking his woke nose into the US election" after the Duke and Duchess told voters to "reject hate speech and online negativity" in a video for TIME.
