Piers Morgan today branded the Duchess of Sussex a ‘piece of work’ and claimed she ‘ghosted him when she met someone more important.’
The Good Morning Britain presenter launched a scathing tirade amid a myriad of reports about the 37-year-old’s alleged behaviour towards palace staff.
Delivering his damning indictment, Piers said Meghan ‘social climbed her way out of his orbit’, and, ‘seized her chance and acted her way to the top’.

Piers added: ‘I’ve had my own experience with her, which was not great to be honest. I knew her for about a year and a half.
‘I got on really well with her and then ‘bang’ she met someone more important and immediately ghosted.
‘I never heard from her ever again and the old slippery slope ladder had gone up and she social climbed her way out of my orbit.
‘So my experience wasn’t great, I’ve got to be honest with you. And everything I’ve seen since does slightly smack of an actress, a Hollywood actress, seizing her chance and acting her way to the top.’
Earlier this week it had emerged that the former Suits star had allegedly ‘thrown a hissy fit’ prior to her marriage to Prince Harry because she was ‘unhappy with the musty smell’ in St George’s Chapel.
It was alleged that she had demanded air fresheners in Windsor Castle, but courtiers had rebuked her.
It has also been claimed that Meghan can be rather demanding of staff, and it has been rumoured that she emails requests to staff in the early hours of the morning.
Journalist Radhika Sanghani labelled Piers’ comments ‘absolutely ridiculous’, adding Meghan and Harry were a ‘great married couple’.

But Piers went on to compare Meghan with her sister-in-law, adding: ‘Kate Middleton is very ‘home counties’ and safe, almost groomed for the role – it’s much easier for everybody to have that kind of person.
‘Meghan is from a very different background, a TV star, and probably finds the Palace system very suffocating and annoying.
‘And the people around her like the formality of it and probably equally find her annoying.’
Piers added: ‘She didn’t inspire me, she sacked me like a sack of spuds. Take people as I find them, and I wasn’t impressed.
‘If you’re watching Meghan – I’m not happy.’
