Piers Morgan has called for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to be stripped of their titles.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they would be stepping back from their roles as senior royals in an unexpected Instagram statement on Wednesday.
Sparking furious backlash, the scathing presenter launched a stinging attack on the couple as he barked their choice should be punished.
The GMB star branded the married lovebirds “deluded clowns” for trying to lay down the law for the Queen and the UK.
In The Daily Mail column , he wrote: “Indeed, if I were Her Majesty the Queen, I would unceremoniously strip Harry and Meghan of all their titles with immediate effect and despatch them back into civilian life.
“These two deluded clowns announced yesterday they were quitting life as senior royals.
“In a series of staggeringly pompous statements on their gleaming new Hollywood-style website, they laid down the law to the Queen and to the rest of us about exactly how things are supposedly going to work from this moment on.”
Spurred on by anger, the outspoken star launched a vicious campaign when he turned on Harry and Meghan in a series of tweets.
In an explosive tweet, the presenter pointed out the ironic contradiction in their front page mission statement and their latest decision to “split” from the Royal family.
The front page statement on Meghan and Harry’s website read: “The goal is to focus on what connects us, rather than what divides us.”
The Good Morning Britain star claimed the pair were seeking to live like the “new Kardashians” and he insisted the tax payer shouldn’t pay for their “duty-free celebrity” lifestyle.
He added: “The taxpayer should not be paying a single penny to support Meghan & Harry’s new life as duty-free celebrities. Not. One. Penny.”
Meghan and Harry made their plans to bow out of the limelight public in an unexpected statement on Wednesday.
The statement read: “We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen.”
