Piers Morgan says he believes more Royal secrets will be revealed in the coming months from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry despite the pair claiming to crave privacy and a quiet life in Southern California.
Morgan, DailyMail.com’s editor-at-large, said that the only way the couple are likely to stay in the news going forward is to essentially cash in on their titles whether it be through deals with Netflix or podcasts with Spotify.
Morgan made the predictions during his own tell-all with Fox News host Tucker Carlson which aired on Monday.

‘Prince Harry is useful to Meghan because he has a royal title and she has been ruthlessly exploiting that title to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.
‘Good luck to them if they can get away with it but I think Americans should be on to this now. How much money would they be making if they weren’t the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for their anodyne views on a podcast to Spotify? Zero! Right?’ Morgan asked.
‘Would they be getting a two hour interview with Oprah if they weren’t Royal? Of course they wouldn’t. Would they be on an open top bus going through Hollywood with James Corden if they weren’t Royal? No! So their entire existence is now being financed by their Royal connection, the same Royal connection which they spent nearly two hours lambasting and saying how much they hated.’
Morgan accused the couple of displaying both inconsistent, hypocritical and ultimately shameful behavior.

‘I wonder what the game plan is for Harry and Megan? Do they carry on plummeting to the bottom in terms of spewing ever more lurid details?’ Morgan questioned.
‘We know that within several 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 this to the American people.’
Morgan said that the revealing of details of private family phone conversations, which had ultimately not been constructive, was an act that could only be categorized as ‘extremely disrespectful’.
‘To do it to your own family, I don’t know how you can trust them again?’ Morgan said. ‘It’s complete hypocrisy all to keep the pot boiling and making themselves talked about which ultimately is their only currency because, you know, they’re not making all this money through talent.’

Morgan continued to ponder what the plan might be for the couple going forward and how they might be able to make millions despite the pair claiming to long for a life out of the limelight.
‘Meghan was an ok actress on a show that not many people watched. I happened to like it. What has Prince Harry done? He went to war and my brother-in-law taught him at Sandhurst Military Academy and said he was a fine young soldier and very courageous man. What’s happened to that guy? He’s turned into this whiney brat in his mid-30s who’s complaining his dad isn’t still financing everything that he does. Complaining he was cut off by daddy and his millions. Actually that wasn’t true either. It turns out Prince Charles had carried on financing him,’ Morgan explained.
‘Remember Harry inherited millions when his mother died. I knew Princess Diana well and I think she’d be horrified by the split between Harry and his brother, by the schism now between Harry and Royal Family generally and by the appalling smearing of the Queen which is already causing damage in some of the commonwealth countries who are buying into this outrageous lie that the Queen is somehow presiding over this racist institution.
‘Im afraid I predict we’ll going to be hearing a lot more from them and we’ll be hearing a more royal secrets from them because that’s their currency and without that they’re just another couple of celebrities now on the huckster trail.’
Morgan said he thought the couple had ‘displayed both inconsistent, hypocritical and ultimately shameful behavior’ including the ‘prince of privacy, riding around on an open-top bus in Beverly Hills with James Corden’ pictured
