Piers Morgan slates Meghan and Harry for ‘royal rule break’ during TV appearance

Piers Morgan has let rip at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after they appeared in a video urging US citizens to vote in the upcoming presidential election.

The Good Morning Britain star claims "it's very obvious" that the Sussex Royals want Donald Trump out of the White House, and Joe Biden in, although they have not said as such.

Members of the Royal Family are not supposed to publicly support or go against political parties, instead having to remain neutral.

As a UK citizen, Harry can't vote anyway – and is unable to vote over here due to his royal status.

But Piers, 55, claims the video goes against royal protocol and that the only option is to remove the couple's titles.

In his column with the Daily Mail, he writes: "The bottom line is this: if they don't want to play by the royal rules, then they should give up all their royal titles."

He goes on: "So, Meghan and Harry have now left the Queen with no choice: she must strip them of their titles before they do even further damage.

"The integrity and neutrality of the Monarchy demands it."

Still a prince of the UK, Harry's official titles are His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales, the Duke of Sussex, the Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel.

Meanwhile, Meghan is a princess of the UK, Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Sussex, Countess of Dumbarton and Baroness Kilkeel.

They still use the titles Duke and Duchess of Sussex on their website, sussexroyal.com.

In the video, Meghan, who is a US citizen, says: "We're just six weeks out from Election Day and today is National Voter Registration Day. Every four years we are told the same thing, that this is the most important election of our lifetime. But this one is."

She continues: "When we vote, our values are put into action and our voices are heard. Your voice is a reminder that you matter, because you do, and you deserve to be heard."

Meanwhile, Harry adds: "As we approach this November, it's vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity.

"When the bad outweighs the good, for many, whether we realise it or not, it erodes our ability to have compassion and our ability to put ourselves in someone else's shoes, because when one person buys into negativity online, the effects are felt exponentially.

"It's time to not only reflect, but act."

Piers notes that Meghan has previously spoken out against Trump, calling him "divisive" and a "misogynist".

He writes: "Although they never mentioned Biden's name, it is crystal clear whose side they're on and it's not the guy sitting in the White House tweeting hateful disingenuous rhetoric 24/7."
