1. “One of the most ruthless social climbers.” Someone let Piers Morgan go off on a tangent about Meghan Markle again.
British journalist Piers Morgan has once again taken the opportunity to rant about Meghan Markle, this time, calling her “one of the most ruthless social climbers” he’s ever met in his “entire life”.
During Fox’s one-hour special Harry & Meghan: The Royals in Crisis, Morgan said, “The moment Meghan Markle no longer perceives you to be useful, it doesn’t matter how close a family member, or friend, you are, you get chopped.
“She’s done it to almost all her old friends. She’s now acquired new friends – Oprah, George Clooney, David Beckham, Elton John – and she’s done it to her ex-husband, she’s done it to most of her family, 99% of them,” he said.
And of course, he didn’t stop there.
Morgan went on to scrutinise Harry and Meghan’s decision to move to Canada which they announced earlier this month, before comparing the Duchess of Sussex to a mini Kim Kardashian.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. 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. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
“They’ve gone off to be the big stars of the family, and it’s incredibly sad,” said Morgan. “I think it’s very damaging, I think it will end in tears, and I fear it will end in Harry’s tears.”
“If Meghan Markle thinks she’s gonna emerge from this as some kind of Princess Diana figure, she needs to think again. She’s going to end up like a mini royal Kim Kardashian, with all the ignominy that goes with that title.”
