The Duchess of Sussex is set to release a children’s book called The Bench, which is inspired by the relationship between her husband Prince Harry and their son Archie. However, her latest venture was quickly mocked by the former Good Morning Britain host, who quit his presenting role in March for refusing to apologise over his comments about her Oprah interview. Mr Morgan posted a meme about Meghan thinking about Bill Gates following his divorce announcement this week, which was accompanied by money emojis.
But his followers did not appear to see the funny side of his joke as they warned he seemed to be “obsessed” with Meghan.
One Twitter user wrote: “She lives in your head rent-free.”
Another person said: “Gosh, do you spend every waking hour thinking about her? #obsessed.”
A third person added: “Personally I’m not particularly interested in her or the Royal Family, but I am perplexed by your obsession!”
A fourth user simply responded: “Leave Meghan and Harry alone!”
Mr Morgan also wrote his latest Mail Online column about Meghan’s new book, while taking a swipe at her relationship with her estranged father.
He wrote: “Lest we forget, Ms Markle has ruthlessly disowned her father Thomas and refuses to have anything to do with him despite the fact they now live just 70 miles from each other.
“She is also reported to have disowned every other Markle, none of whom were invited to her wedding.

“This doesn’t seem like someone overly keen to operate ‘an inclusive lens’ to me. In fact, it seems a singularly EX-clusive lens.”
Mr Morgan then went on to claim that during Harry and Meghan’s interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, Harry “trashed his father, Prince Charles”.
He added he did not think Harry came across well by “moaning about how Daddy had stopped taking his calls or giving him cash, sounding like some needy spoiled brat teenager rather than a 36-year-old multi-millionaire doormat who ditched his family, country and duty because his chillingly controlling and ambitious wife wanted him to.”
Back in March, Mr Morgan said ITV bosses gave him an “ultimatum”, which was to either apologise for saying he did not believe Meghan Markle or quit his job as presenter.

The 55-year-old chose the latter option.
He said: “ITV executives suggested to me that I should now issue an apology to calm things down. But I don’t believe Meghan, so why would I apologise?”
A day earlier, he had walked off the show after disagreeing with the other presenters about the tell-all interview.
The programme also received over 40,000 complaints to regulator Ofcom after Mr Morgan said he “didn’t believe a word” of the Duchess of Sussex’s claims that she had issues with her mental health.
Meanwhile, Meghan, who is expecting a daughter in the summer, said in a statement yesterday that she was inspired to write after Archie was born in 2019.
She said: “The Bench started as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father’s Day, the month after Archie was born.”
“That poem became this story. Christian layered in beautiful and ethereal watercolour illustrations that capture the warmth, joy and comfort of the relationship between fathers and sons from all walks of life; this representation was particularly important to me and Christian and I worked closely to depict this special bond through an inclusive lens.
“My hope is that The Bench resonates with every family, no matter the make-up, as much as it does with mine.”
