Piers Morgan’s still perhaps best known stateside for his on-air temper tantrum over Meghan Markle, and he never sure seems to miss an opportunity to bash Prince Harry’s wife. The pro-monarchy braggadochio previously trashed her revelations about racially-charged bad vibes from the Royals, and amid all of his trolling, Piers also mentioned that Meghan was guilty of “ghosting” him after a pub date back in the day. He also lost it over her book, and it’s clear that (as the kids say) she lives in Piers’ head rent free.
People generally laugh at Piers when he rages over Meghan, and he’s living up to his reputation with his response to a very personal and emotional story. On Meghan’s new Spotify podcast (Archetypes), the Duchess of Sussex revealed that, while she and Prince Harry toured South Africa with their son, Archie, the heater in his bedroom sparked a fire. Despite the heaviness of that day and all of the tears that followed, Meghan was still required to make her scheduled royal appearance that evening, and she commented (via Newsweek) upon the whacked-out nature of those priorities:
“Someone happened to just smell smoke down the hallway, went in, fire extinguished. He was supposed to be sleeping in there.
“And we came back. And of course, as a mother, you go, Oh, my God, what? Everyone’s in tears, everyone’s shaken. And what do we have to do? Go out and do another official engagement? I said, ‘This doesn’t make any sense.’
“I was like, ‘Can you just tell people what happened?’ And so much, I think, optically, the focus ends up being on how it looks instead of how it feels.”
Piers saw the story circulating on Twitter, and four minutes after the initial link to an ITV News story, he was already criticizing Meghan. “Can you imagine the Queen whining about having to an an engagement in this circumstance?” Piers wrote. “Markle’s victimhood knows no bounds, nor does her thirst to trash the royals whilst making $$$ from them.” He further branded her “shameless & pathetic.”
He wasn’t even in the room & nobody was harmed. Can you imagine the Queen whining about having to an an engagement in this circumstance? Markle’s victimhood knows no bounds, nor does her thirst to trash the royals whilst making $$$ from them.
It’s shameless & pathetic. https://t.co/Gu8dWatmjZ

As one might expect, people hopped all over Piers for clearly obsessing and thirsting over Meghan to this very day.
It took you 3 minutes to reply to a tweet about Megan Markle. She lives in your head rent free mate

Piers give it a rest, she rejected you on a night out, it happens. The guy has been stalking her for years now

What’s shameless and pathetic is you going after her constantly

Attacking a woman verbally online is a sad thing to do @piersmorgan . Bit of a contradiction regarding thirst to trash, shameless and pathetic

Be honest, you probably Google Meghan Markle before you even brush your teeth every morning. Unhealthy.

I’m NOT Meghan’s biggest fan, however, this would be terrifying for any parent. Had they been honest and told people, engagements could have been moved, people would have understood. You are right, the Queen would still have gone, she has to, Meghan and Harry didn’t!

It’s upsetting because as a mother you realize what could have happened!
You’re shameless and pathetic.

And still, Meghan’s still living her best life in Montecito while Piers rages.
