PIERS Morgan stroked Susanna Reid with a plastic hand after they rowed over Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on Good Morning Britain today.
The Duke of Sussex and wife Meghan Markle returned for first time home since announcing they were quitting as royals and moving to Canada part-time.
And William and Kate were reportedly “incandescent with rage” when they found out the Sussexes planned to leave – after the news had been shared with the public.
Meghan’s biggest critic Piers, 54, went on another rant today and claimed Meghan “splits people up” and that they had been “parading in front of the media” upon their return.
But besotted Susanna branded them “rock stars” and clapped back: “You are relentless in your criticism.”
Turning on Susanna, Piers raged: “My position is I think she’s caused some damage to the Queen and I am allowed to stay that.
“You are allowed your opinion because you are infatuated by them, I should be allowed to because I am not. I don’t see why your views are more valid than mine.”
Piers then shared a tweet from Arsenal ladies footballer Lianne Sanderson who told him to “leave them alone” on Twitter.
He replied: “They don’t want to be left alone, they’ve just spent days parading in front of the media. I just said it’s a bit odd for new parents to both be 1000s of miles away from their baby for 4/5 days.”
Looking around at Susanna and Charlotte Hawkins, he added: “We discussed this before the show. None of us have ever done it.”
His comments came after the 93-year-old Queen reportedly revealed her “worst fear” is not seeing Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor again – worrying they won’t have a “relationship” as he grows up away from the Royal Family.
Piers tried to thaw the ice after an advert break by whipping out a pair of plastic arms in the wake of the deadly coronavirus.
