Piers Morgan has reacted to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s bombshell Netflix docuseries – and he’s not happy.
The first episodes of Harry & Meghan dropped tonight and the royal couple’s expolsive show has already attracted negative reaction.
Taking to Twitter, Morgan wrote: “This is worse than Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Something I didn’t think was humanly possible.
“God, they’re so boring!
“Disgusting how they’re repeatedly trying to brand Britain a racist country. Most tolerant place in Europe, as all the coverage of their engagement/wedding showed.”
The Sky News host poked fun at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex writing: “We’ve never been allowed to tell our story until now’ ”
The journalist then criticised Meghan was uninviting her niece to her 2018 weeding.
“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,” he wrote.

The broadcaster is not the only TV personality to comment on the Sussexes’ show.
GB News presenter Dan Wootton took a swipe at the docuseries on Twitter, slamming the couple’s over their previous complaints about having their privacy invaded.
“For a couple who claim they care about their privacy, in less than half an hour Harry and Meghan have already shared with the world ‘private’ text message exchanges, ‘private’ photos from their dates, ‘private’ video diaries and ‘private’ clips of their son,” Wootton tweeted.
“First of many shots fired. Harry is using clips in his reality show of the Princess Diana Panorama interview William has tried so hard to get banned. He admits his mother was deceived into giving interview, but adds: ‘She spoke the truth of her experience.’
“Obvious and very cruel dig at William and Kate by Harry…
‘For so many people in the family, especially the men, there can be a temptation or an urge to marry someone who would fit the mould as opposed to somebody who you are perhaps destined to be with.’
“I wonder if Meghan has ever told “H” about how she used to set up her own paparazzi shots in London through her PR team while trying to raise her profile?”
Talk TV presenter Julia Hartley-Brewer tweeted: “Watching the #HarryandMeghanonNetflix docuseries. If I wasn’t already feeling sick, this would have done the trick.
“Porn stars do a better job of protecting their privacy than these two. Selling their self-pitying souls to the highest bidder. Yuck.
“Just got to the bit where of course we’re all racist and so is Brexit. So unpredictable. #HarryandMeghanNetflix”
Other users agreed that Harry & Meghan was “boring.”
“Watched five minutes of the #HarryandMeghanNetflix and switched it off again because it was so boring. The outrage brigade might find this is nothing more than a damp squib. And it’s not as if we don’t know the story already,” one person wrote.
“So… anyone else feeling like #HarryandMeghanNetflix is sounding a bit boring? Same old stuff being recycled with new words and shiny pictures?,” another said.
“So much for those “explosive” trailers ”
“#HarryandMeghanNetflix by idiots, about idiots, for idiots,” a third wrote.
“It’s the world’s longest, most boring wedding toast,” a fourth said.
Not everyone shared the same views about Harry & Meghan.
“Harry & Meghan is actually quite a hoot to watch,” one person wrote.
“5 mins in and already love them more…#HarryandMeghanNetflix,” another said.
“Loving #HarryandMeghanNetflix even more,” a third wrote.
The six-part documentary takes an in-depth look into the Sussex’s early courtship and the challenges that led to them feeling forced to step back from their full-time roles in the institution.
According to the program’s bio, “Harry & Meghan is a never-before-seen look at one of the most-discussed couples in history.”
