Piers Morgan as labeled Prince Harry a “shameless, deluded, woefully entitled hypocrite” over a lawsuit filed against the British government.
The Duke of Sussex is seeking a “judicial review” challenging the Home Office decision to deny him police protection during visits to Britain.
Harry says he and Meghan cannot come to the U.K. unless they are granted a Metropolitan Police protection detail and has offered to fund the team himself.
The lawsuit triggered a backlash in the British media with regular critic Morgan using his new column in The Sun to criticize the decision.
“There are now three cast-iron certainties in life: death, taxes, and Prince Harry behaving like a shameless, deluded, woefully entitled hypocrite. There was a wearisome inevitability that just when the Queen least needed her renegade royal grandson to pipe up whining again from his Californian mansion, he would do exactly that.”
“The petulant prince is threatening legal action—is there ever a time when he isn’t?—unless the Home Office caves and restores the royal security he enjoyed before his dramatic flounce to America. If he goes through with his threat, it will be the first time any royal has ever sued Her Majesty’s Government, and, of course, causes the Queen yet another massive headache at the worst possible time.”
