Piers Morgan suggests Prince Harry is unhappy being married to 'self-serving social climber' Meghan Markle

PIERS MORGAN has questioned whether Prince Harry is happy in his marriage to Meghan Markle as he takes yet more swipes at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The TV presenter, who quit his role at Good Morning Britain after refusing to apologise for comments he made about Markle in the aftermath of her and her husband's explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this month, continued to stoke the flames of his feud with the couple while writing for the Daily Mail.

Morgan was highly critical of both Meghan and Harry for smearing the Royal Family with unsubstantiated accusations of racism, bullying and cruelty, during what must have been a particularly difficult time for the Queen - with her husband in hospital.

"I expected such disingenuous self-serving wrecking-ball stuff from a social-climbing Hollywood actress like Ms Markle," Morgan wrote, "but for Harry to publicly shred his family and the Monarchy like this, while Prince Philip was seriously ill in hospital, is so out of character for a man who once bravely served his Queen and country in war.

"He can't be happy doing this, surely?"

Piers also insisted that he isn't a racist, not are those who defend him, like his friend Sharon Osbourne - who like Morgan was forced to quit a TV presenter role because of comments she made about the situation.

"It appears that questioning Meghan's fork-tongued 'truth' is now a racist hate-crime," he added.

Osbourne, who defended Morgan on US chat show The Talk, asked her co-presenter Sheryl Underwood for proof of where Piers had said anything even remotely racist, but didn't get a straight answer.

"I don't understand," said a bemused Osbourne. "If Piers doesn't like someone, and they happen to be black, does that make him a racist?"

"No," said Underwood.

"Right, so why can't it be he just doesn't like her? Why does it have to be racist?"
