The new Netflix documentary from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has finally been released after months of speculation as to what it might entail.
Harry & Meghan premiered on Netflix just today with its first 3 episodes, and has given the public the opportunity to see their side of the story, including how the couple actually met over Instagram. The second half of the 6-part series will come out in a week’s time on December 15.
However, to no one’s surprise, one of the pair’s biggest critics, Piers Morgan, has already come out fists-first to slam the docuseries, calling it a “nauseatingly self-serving narcissistic rehashed whine-a-thon”.
The British journalist has a long history of bashing the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Most notably, the fifty-seven-year-old quit the breakfast show Good Morning Britain last year, where he had been a presenter since 2015. This came after he was heavily criticized for his comments regarding Markle specifically.
Morgan also had something to say when the teaser trailer for the new series came out last week, as it was discovered that his voice had been used over the collection of clips.
“BREAKING: Princess Pinocchio & Prince Hypocrite use my voice to flog their ghastly new series. I’m traumatised by this exploitation,” he tweeted.
He can be heard in the trailer calling the Duchess a “royal rockstar”.
However, the plot has once again thickened with the actual release of the series.
“This is worse than Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” he said of the new show. “Something I didn’t think was humanly possible.”
In another tweet, he proclaimed; “God, they’re so boring!”
“Disgusting how they’re repeatedly trying to brand Britain a racist country,” he said. “Most tolerant place in Europe, as all the coverage of their engagement/wedding showed.”
Morgan also went after the way the pair discussed Markle’s father in the documentary.
“Markle now trashing her own father, who is still recovering from a massive stroke. Ms Compassion hasn’t even called him,” he said in one tweet.
In another, he wrote: “‘She doesn’t have a father’. Wow. Shocking thing for Harry to say about Thomas Markle, the man he has never met. She does have a father, and he brought her up on his own for years. Where is that in the documentary?”
Morgan also had something to say about Markle’s discussion of her wedding invite list: “Markle explaining why she uninvited her distraught niece to her wedding is hilarious. Ms Compassion literally binned off her own family for the likes of George Clooney, Oprah & David Beckham.”
The journalist’s prolific dissection of the show has naturally gained a lot of traction on the internet.
One person responded: “Honestly Piers, stop comparing this drivel to the Kardashians who are amazing business people and are overall authentic, this is drivel!”
Another joked: “I’d pay a decent chunk of money to watch your reaction whilst watching this, it could be a Netflix show in itself.”
A third said candidly: “Nobody is forcing you to watch it and you are doing a great job promoting it.”
