PIERS Morgan has slammed “hypocrite” Meghan Markle for her kids’ book on the bond between a father and son – as he says she “ruined the ties between Charles and Harry”.
The TV firebrand – a long-time critic of the royal couple – hit out after it was revealed yesterday the Duchess of Sussex is writing her first book, The Bench.

The tale was inspired by a poem she wrote from Archie for Harry’s first Father’s Day.
Now Piers, who stepped down from his role at Good Morning Britain after refusing to apologise to Meghan for comments made about her after the Oprah interview, said he “laughed out loud” after learning of the book.
And in his column for the Daily Mail, he said the news is
“The whole notion of Meghan Markle dishing out advice to anyone about the relationship between fathers and children is absolutely ridiculous given the appalling relationships she and her husband have with their own fathers,” he said.
“This new book about father-children relationships is just another example of Meghan Markle’s never-ending penchant for preaching what she never practices.
Piers claims ’17 lies’ were told during the chat with Oprah[/caption]
“If she really cared about father-child relationships, she’d take a chauffeur-driven limousine on the hour-long trip to see her own father who’s never even met either Harry or Archie.
“And if she really cared about father-child relationships, she would never have trashed Harry’s family on global TV in the horrible way that she did, causing yet more damage, possibly irreparably, to Harry’s relationship with his father.”
The fall-out from Meghan and Harry’s interview with Oprah continues almost two months on, with the Queen said to be “disappointed” by the chat.
During the interview, Harry accused his family of “cutting him off” when he stepped back as a senior royal – forcing him to sign deals with Netflix and Spotify to pay for security.
And Piers has previously accused Meghan of 17 “lies” he alleges she told during the interview – calling her the “Delusional Duchess” and “Princess Pinocchio”.
