Meghan Markle and Prince Harry continue to receive hate and condemnations even after they stepped down from their roles as senior royals in January 2020. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex cited their desire to become financially independent from the firm as one of their motivations behind their infamous “Megxit.”
The Sussexes have been living away from the royal family for more than two years now as they continue trying to stand on their own feet. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have also demanded the public to respect their privacy, especially when it comes to the details of the new chapter of their lives and their doting kids – Archie and Lilibet.
Recently, avid followers of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry lambasted Piers Morgan after he promised to take swift vengeance on the former Suits actress after she allegedly tried to cancel the broadcaster. Keep on reading to know more.
Piers Morgan Breathing Revenge After Meghan Markle Reportedly Canceled Him
Express UK reported that Piers Morgan is preparing for brutal revenge against Meghan Markle after he alleged she tried to cancel him. Netizens were quick to defend Prince Harry’s wife after he made threats against the duchess and suggested that she is in for a “nasty surprise.”
The 56-year-old broadcaster was also canceled from Good Morning Britain after he dubbed the Duchess of Sussex a liar following her interview with Oprah Winfrey. In his new column in The Sun, Piers Morgan penned:
“The column is called Uncensored because it does what it says on the tin. Effectively I was censored at my previous job and told to apologize to Meghan Markle for an honestly held opinion, which obviously I wasn’t going to do. Pushy little Princess Pinocchio tried her utmost to cancel me, and she will be in for a very unpleasant surprise when I emerge, like Lazarus, from my den. It was a pretty bruising experience on Good Morning Britain but I’m now working somewhere where I’m free to express my opinions.”
Piers Morgan and Meghan Markle used to be friends before the wife of Prince Harry reportedly “ghosted” the broadcaster after one meeting. Since then, Piers has been criticizing the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in everything that they do.
As per usual, devoted followers of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry defended them from Piers Morgan. One netizen, as per Express UK, wrote:
“He is a joke. Remember the comments about Meghan Markle.”
Another netizen said:
“Listen Piers, you have far far faaaar more haters than people liking you, that’s a fact. You’re hated as much as Tony Blair.”
A third Twitter user tackled Piers Morgan’s “immaturity” by writing:
“It’s hard to take you seriously as a man ever since Meghan Markle ghosted you and you acted like a hurt little boy lol Grow a pair Piers and stop. Just stop.”
Another netizen shared:
“For somebody who doesn’t agree with people being cancelled Piers Morgan is very quick to block anybody on Twitter.”
To recall, Piers Morgan quit Good Morning Britain amid a row and a furious backlash over his coverage of Meghan Markle and her Oprah Winfrey interview, alongside Prince Harry. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have yet to comment on the broadcaster’s latest statements against them.
Meghan Markle’s Lawyer Debunked Bullying Allegations Shrouding Prince Harry’s Wife
Meanwhile, solicitor Jenny Afia has defended Meghan Markle amid the reports that her client bullied several royal staff members before her shocking departure from the royal family. Celebeat reported the attorney from libel law firm Schillings said that the wife of Prince Harry never mistreated anyone in her life.
Jenny Afia said of Meghan Markle’s bullying allegations:
“I think that first thing is to be really clear about what bullying is because the term gets used very, very casually. My daughter called me a bully last week when I asked her to brush her teeth — she’s seven years old. So the term is used very freely and it’s a very, very damaging term as we know, particularly I think for career women.”
The solicitor furthered that:
“What bullying actually means is improperly using power repeatedly and deliberately hurt someone, physically or emotionally. The Duchess of Sussex absolutely denies ever doing that. Knowing her as I do, I can’t believe she would ever do that. I wasn’t there at the time but it doesn’t match my experience of her at all and I’ve seen her at very, very stressful times. That story is absolutely untrue that she is a bully. That said she wouldn’t want to negate anyone’s personal experiences.”
A spokesperson for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry previously labeled the bullying accusations as a “calculated smear campaign.” Janina Gavankar, a close friend of the Duchess of Sussex, also came to her rescue and stated:
“They didn’t hide that fact. It was without doubt done intentionally to discredit the duchess. I have known Meghan for 17 years, and I have seen the way she regards people around her and the people she works with, and I can say she is not a bully.”
Buckingham Palace has already been investigating the claims that Meghan Markle did bully a number of royal staff members. However, in June, it was made known that the results of the inquiries were being delayed.
