Piers Morgan accuses Prince Harry of having ‘brass neck’ to claim he had ‘no choice’ but to quit and insists: ‘The Queen is always the biggest star of the royal family’
- Harry last night told private dinner that he has no choice but to step down
- Piers Morgan blasted him for claim, saying he wanted to have his cake and eat it
- Said that he and Meghan failed to convince the queen about their new roles
Piers Morgan has accused Prince Harry of having a ‘brass neck’ for claiming he had ‘no choice’ but to quit his royal duties and insisted: ‘The Queen is always the biggest star of the royal family.’
Today he railed against the Sussexes’ decision to step down as he accused them of trying to have their cake and eat it by carving out a new role for themselves.
It came after Harry last night broke his silence on Megxit during a private dinner for charity Sentebale, which he founded in 2006. The Duke of Sussex claimed that he and Meghan have no choice but to step down.
But Piers said on Good Morning Britain today that Harry and Meghan had tried and failed to convince the Queen of their vision for the future.
‘He wanted to call her bluff the queen took his progressive manifesto for the royals and she said no we’re not having it.
‘The Queen has turned round and gone, no, your’e not having your cake and eating it, you’re all in or you’re all out.’
He added: ‘The Queen is always the biggest star of the royal family.’
It comes after Harry said last night that the royal couple had hoped to continue serving the Queen, the Commonwealth and his military associations, without any public funding.
Insisting that the UK would always be his home, he maintained that his wife, Meghan, ‘upholds the same values as I do’ and was ‘excited’ and ‘hopeful’ about playing a full royal role after their wedding.
But he said now ‘there really was no other option’ but to step back – a decision which, he said, was ‘not one I made lightly’.
The duke paid a stirring tribute to his grandmother, calling her his ‘commander-in-chief’ and that he was ‘incredibly grateful’ to Her Majesty and the rest of his family for supporting him and Meghan.
