Prince Harry, alongside his U.S.-born wife Meghan Markle, trashed his own royal family in an interview with Oprah Winfrey on Sunday - and it really upset British commentator Piers Morgan.
In the interview, Prince Harry and Markle claimed that they departed their royal duties because a member(s) of the royal family voiced concern about the darkness of their son Archie’s skin complexion and allegedly denied him the title of “Prince” for that reason. The couple neglected to name a specific source of the alleged prejudice, raising concerns over the legitimacy of the allegations.
Following the interview, Good Morning Britain Host Piers Morgan took to Twitter to slam Harry for letting his wife “take down his family.”
This interview is an absolutely disgraceful betrayal of the Queen and the Royal Family. I expect all this vile destructive self-serving nonsense from Meghan Markle - but for Harry to let her take down his family and the Monarchy like this is shameful. #OprahMeghanHarry pic.twitter.com/F2QDxELSsr— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 8, 2021
Morgan also alleged Harry agreed to the interview because he wants “America and the rest of the world to hate his own family.”

I suggest everyone waits for the victims of his wife’s rampage to have their say on her outlandish claims before they do so.
On Good Morning Britain, Morgan continued to trash the interview, saying, “I’m angry to the point of boiling over. I’m sickened by what I’ve just seen. This is a two hour trashathon of our monarchy and Royal Family. They trash everybody! They basically make out everybody in the Royal Family is a white supremacist. I just don’t think that’s acceptable.”
“Never have I watched a more repulsively disingenuous interview," Morgan added in a UK Daily Mail column.
The controversial interview comes during a troubling time in the royal family as Harry’s grandfather, 99-year-old Prince Philip, has been hospitalized for three weeks due to heart troubles.
In 1961, Queen Elizabeth famously danced with African liberation leader Kwame Nkrumah in an attempt to disparage racism - but the royal family's legacy may be in peril following the former royals' latest accusations.
