PIERS Morgan has launched a devastating attack on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry and has ordered them to stop playing about their decision to make private details about the baptism of their son Archie Harrison private.
The outspoken Good Morning Britain presenter said that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex should reveal details about their son’s baptism if they are happy to pay taxpayers for their home. Piers Morgan’s fiery tirade comes just a few hours after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have held a “private” baptism for their firstborn and will not reveal the identity of their son’s godparents.
The decision of the royal couple made furore just a few days after it came out £ 2.4 million taxpayers’ money was used to redecorate their new Windsor home, Frogmore Cottage.
Piers went on Twitter and said that Harry and Meghan should stop “playing this stupid cake and eat it.”
He tweeted: “” The godparents are not announced. “Why not?
Harry and Meghan have to stop playing these stupid cake-and-eat-it games with the media / audience.
“If you want your home expenses to be paid by the taxpayer, you give up this kind of information. That’s the deal.”
The ITV host has been an outspoken critic of Meghan Markle since she had the knot on Prince Harry at a spectacular royal wedding last year.
He tweeted earlier: “Individuals don’t get £ 2.4 million in home improvements paid by the taxpayer.
“This baptism must be public – or the public must get its money back.
She said: “We do not ask Archie to become a public property, but to share in the pleasure of his baptism, I think it is only fair to give the public that pleasure.
“Because although Archie himself will not become a working member of the royal family, as far as we can see he will be raised as a normal child, that is fine, but Harry is very much a part of the royal family as we have it in known over the years.
“People love him and they are very happy for him – he is married to Meghan and they have had the baby – and they want to share in the joy of that and I think this is a terrible shame and I think it is a mistake. “
Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, added: “The problem is that she and Meghan want it in every possible way.”
