Piers Morgan has launched a scathing attack on Oprah Winfrey, accusing her on enabling an “unhinged” Prince Harry.
The former Good Morning Britain host, 56, suggested that the TV host didn’t care about the damage the interviews were doing to the mental health of the Duke of Sussex’s relatives.
This comes after Prince Harry accused the royal family of “total neglect” and declared that he would “not be bullied” as he recalled the traumatic memories of his childhood, including the death of his mother, Princess Diana.
In the duke’s mental health docuseries, The Me You Can’t See, with Oprah, he opened up about his attempts to get assistance from his family over attacks he and Meghan were receiving online.
He said: “Every single ask, request, warning, whatever it is, to stop just got met with total silence or total neglect.”
Lashing out at Oprah, Piers furiously tweeted this evening: “At what point does Oprah’s hugely lucrative enabling of unhinged Prince Harry’s constant assaults on the Royal Family become ‘problematic’ – and does she care about the damage it may be doing to the mental health of Harry’s relatives, or don’t they count?”
Earlier today, Oprah defended the Sussexes for speaking out against the royals, despite moving to the US to lead a more private life.
Appearing on the Today show, Oprah suggested that Harry and Meghan “deserve” to “not be intruded and invaded upon”.
She said: “You know, I ask for privacy, and I’m talking all the time. So I think being able to have a life that you are not intruded upon by photographers, or people flying overhead, or invading your life, is what every person wants and deserves — to not to be intruded and invaded upon.
“That’s what people are missing. Privacy doesn’t mean silence.”
