Piers Morgan is on Team Meghan Markle.
Or, to be more accurate perhaps, Piers Morgan is on Team Anyone But Samantha Markle.
The soon-to-be half-sister-in-law of Prince Harry has been making waves for several months, taking advantage of her estranged sibling’s engagement to drag Meghan left and right.
With a book on the way titled “The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister,” Samantha has been appearing on any media outlet that will accept her as a guest and using her air time to insult her half-sister as a fraud and a phony and a generally terrible person.
On Tuesday, that outlet was Good Morning Britain.
And the topic at hand was the reported absence of Samantha and Megan’s father from Meghan’s upcoming wedding.
(Samantha and Meghan share the same dad, but different mothers. The former was grown up and out of the house when the latter was a child; they barely know each other.)
As of this writing, Thomas Markle doesn’t plan on attending the Royal Nuptials, partially due to a recent heart attack… but mostly due to embarrassment over the reveal that he’s been paying paparazzi photographers to stage his photo ops.
“The goal of those photographs was basically because he’s feeling defenseless,” Samantha explained in defense of her dad, adding:
“A person has the right to say, ‘Enough is enough.'”
She then shamed “media vultures” for allegedly “taking advantage” of him.
And this is when Morgan stepped in.
“Here’s the problem with all this,” said the co-host.
“In the last few weeks, the British media have been bombarded with letters from Kensington Palace saying he wants to be left alone.
“And now, it turns out he was actively invading his own privacy. I now feel sorry for his own daughter, who doesn’t have her father at the wedding because he has been caught up posing for paparazzi photos.”
As for the comment that journalists are vultures who have targeted her loved ones?
“It’s pretty rich coming from you, Samantha, to accuse media of being vultures,” Morgan said, adding in anger:
“There’s no bigger media vulture with this wedding than you, is there? How do you have the gall to come on here and talk about media vultures? You’re doing a book called The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister.
“You have been trashing her for two years, you little vulture!”
