Piers Morgan says Harry and Meghan will cash in on their titles or they’ll be a celebrity pair again
Piers Morgan says he believes more royal secrets will be revealed from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in the coming months, despite the couple claiming to crave privacy and a quiet life in Southern California.
Morgan, the editor-in-chief of DailyMail.com, said the only way the pair is likely to stay in the news in the future is by cashing in on their titles, be it deals with Netflix or podcasts with Spotify.
Morgan made the predictions during his own tell-all with Fox news host Tucker Carlson that aired Monday.

Meghan Markle married into one of the richest, most privileged families in the world, and has returned to her California home within a few years, living in an $ 11 million mansion. Do all kinds of huge deals with Netflix, Spotify, you name it, they take the checks; hundreds of millions, we read. And how do they get it? They get them because they are the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. They take them off their royal titles.
These are royal titles bestowed on them by the institution they say in that interview with Oprah Winfrey that they cannot stand and choke and set them up, and so on. Well, you can’t have it both ways. If you really believe that about the royal family and the monarchy, give up your titles, ”Morgan explained.
Prince Harry is useful to Meghan because he has a royal title and she has ruthlessly exploited that title for hundreds of millions of dollars.
Good luck if they can get away with it, but I think Americans should get into this now. How much money would they make if they weren’t the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for their anodic take on a podcast on Spotify? Zero! Turn right?’ Morgan asked.
Would they get a two-hour interview with Oprah if they weren’t Royal? Of course not. Would they ride an open-top bus through Hollywood with James Corden if they weren’t Royal? No! So their entire existence is now being funded by their royal connection, the same royal connection they spent nearly two hours complaining and saying how much they hated. ‘
Morgan sparked a firestorm on social media the day after the Oprah interview on March 7 when he said he “ didn’t believe a word ” of what Meghan said.
During Monday’s interview with Carlson, Morgan accused the couple of displaying inconsistent, hypocritical, and ultimately shameful behavior.
Morgan, the editor-in-chief of DailyMail.com, said he believed the pair were using their royal titles to strike deals with Netflix and a podcast with Spotify.
I wonder what the game plan is for Harry and Megan? Do they keep dropping to the bottom in terms of spitting out more and more lurid detail? Morgan asked.
We know that within days of the Oprah interview, Prince Charles and Prince William both called Prince Harry to discuss the interview. And the reason we know that incredibly private information is because the first thing they did was tell Gayle King, Oprah’s best friend who hosts the CBS morning show, who then broadcast it to the American people. ‘
Morgan said that disclosing details of private family phone calls, which had not been constructive in the end, was an act that could only be categorized as “ extremely disrespectful. ”
“To do it to your own family, I don’t know how to trust them again?” Morgan said. “It’s all complete hypocrisy to keep the pot boiling and let themselves talk about what is ultimately their only currency, because you know, they don’t make all this money with talent.”
Morgan suggested the couple wouldn’t have had a two-hour interview with Oprah Winfrey if it wasn’t for their royal connections.

Morgan kept thinking about what the plan might be for the couple in the future and how they could make millions, despite the couple claiming to long for a life out of the spotlight.
Meghan was a fine actress on a show that not many people watched. I happened to like it. What has Prince Harry done? He went to battle and my brother-in-law taught him at the Sandhurst Military Academy and said he was a fine young soldier and a very brave man. What happened to that guy? He’s turned into a nagging brat in his mid-thirties who complains that his dad still isn’t funding everything he does. Complaining that he was cut off by Dad and his millions. Actually, that was not true either. It turns out Prince Charles had continued to fund him, ”Morgan explained.
Remember that Harry inherited millions when his mother died. I knew Princess Diana well and I think she would be shocked at the split between Harry and his brother, at the schism now between Harry and the Royal Family in general and at the horrible smearing of the Queen that is already doing damage in some of the commonwealth countries that believe this scandalous lie that the queen somehow presides over this racist institution.
‘I’m afraid I predict we’ll hear a lot more from them and we’ll hear more royal secrets from them because that’s their currency and without it they’re just another few celebrities on the trail right now. ‘
Morgan said he thought the couple had “ exhibited both inconsistent, hypocritical and ultimately embarrassing behavior, ” including the “ prince of privacy, riding an open-top bus in Beverly Hills with James Corden ” in the photo.
Morgan resigned from Good Morning Britan on March 9 – a day after storming off the set during an on-air feud with weather forecaster Alex Beresford, who criticized him for “ continuing to destroy ” the Duchess of Sussex.
More than 41,000 complaints were received by Ofcom, the UK communications regulator, including one from Meghan herself after the collision.
The Duchess would have expressed concern at ITV about the effect Morgan’s comments may have on the issue of mental health in general and those trying to solve their own problems.
But Morgan later reiterated his condemnation of her interview the next day when he told reporters outside his West London home, ‘If I have to fall on my sword for expressing a heartfelt opinion about Meghan Markle and that rant she came out with in that interview, so be it. ‘
Shortly after, he announced his resignation and tweeted his thanks to the GMB team, praising them for their “ hard work and dedication ” that led to them beating their main breakfast TV rival.
After his departure, at least three petitions calling for Morgan’s reassignment to GMB have collected more than 240,000 signatures.
Last month, Morgan announced he had quit GMB after co-star Alex Beresford (right) disputed his comments about Meghan.
Morgan ruled out a return to the show, but called the petitions a “ pleasant surprise ” in a March 13 Instagram statement.
‘I’m not going back, but I want to thank everyone who signed these petitions. Normally people start petitions to have me fired or deported, so this is a pleasant surprise, ” he wrote.
“Those of you who know me well know that, despite my many mistakes, I am always ready to stand up for the things I think matter most.
My staunch opposition to the Iraq War led to my downfall from the Daily Mirror. My outspoken opinion of the madness of the US gun laws led to the end of my time at CNN.
“And now I’ve lost my job at Good Morning Britain for choosing not to apologize for not believing Meghan Markle’s claims in her interview with Oprah Winfrey.”
He added: “So I became the latest ‘victim’ of the cancellation culture pervading our country, every minute, every hour, every day. But of course I don’t consider myself a victim, nor as canceled.
“However, I do believe that defending freedom of expression and the right to express genuine opinions is the most important issue of my career, and the most important issue in British society.”
