Piers Morgan Erupts: Demands Queen Strip Harry And Meghan Of Their Royal Titles For ‘Using’ Baby Archie
Piers Morgan polled viewers on whether the Queen should strip Harry and Meghan of their royal titles for "using" Archie in a fiery segment.
On Monday, fiery British television personality Piers Morgan erupted on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for “using” their 1 year-old son Archie on their podcast. The explosive “Good Morning Britain” segment ended with a call for Queen Elizabeth to strip the Duke and Duchess of their Royal titles.

Piers Morgan Calls Out Harry And Meghan For Their Hypocrisy
Morgan called out Harry and Meghan, who he has dubbed “Ginge and Cringe,” on their hypocrisy, pointing out on his show “Good Morning Britain” that they’d fled to Hollywood last year claiming that they wanted “privacy” for Archie.
“They quit the country for privacy and they’ve hardly shut up since. They particularly wanted to protect their little boy who is the star of their new podcast. It is all complete hogwash,” Morgan said in his rant.
“When Ginge and Cringe did their new podcast – that’s their new nicknames, because he’s got ginger hair and she makes me cringe – and little Archie was brought in to flog it, did that not make you [cringe]?” he added. “After all that saying ‘we had to leave the country to protect his privacy. but now the moment we’ve signed a big-money deal we’re going to use him to flog our podcast.'”

‘Good Morning Britain’ Cohost Susanna Reid Jumps In
Morgan’s cohost Susanna Reid tried to argue with him, saying, “Archie is a part of their family and if they want to include him, then why not?”
Morgan, however, was not having any of it.
“It all comes down to the same thing, would Spotify have given them two quid for this podcast if they weren’t the Duke and Duchess of Sussex? They wouldn’t have the profile if they weren’t members of the Royal Family,” he said.
“They are fleecing the Royal Family for money,” Morgan added. “Let them go and do their thing as Meghan and Harry, but stop using the Queen. It is completely inappropriate for members of the Royal Family to fleece commercial entities in this way.”
“Spotify, Netflix, coffee companies.. they’re out there,” he said. “Meghan clearly wants to make them fabulously rich, not a problem. She’s come in, taken the prince, and is now making millions. Why don’t we see how popular they are when they are just good old Megs and Harry, Ginge and Cringe. They are making a mockery of the Royal Family system.”
Piers Morgan Polls ‘Good Morning Britain’ Viewers About Stripping Harry And Meghan’s Titles
Not stopping there, Morgan proceeded to suggest a poll to see if his viewers agreed with him.
“Our viewers aren’t stupid,” he said. “Let’s do a poll; should the Queen strip Meghan and Harry of their Royal titles that they are so shamelessly using to make hundreds of millions of dollars?”
The Sun reported that in the end, 74 percent of viewers agreed with Morgan that Harry and Meghan should be stripped of their titles.
We have to agree with Morgan here. It’s become nearly impossible to believe that Harry and Meghan actually want privacy, given the fact that they continually thrust themselves into the spotlight at every turn.
If the people of the United Kingdom are as tired of Harry and Meghan as the above poll suggests, perhaps the Queen really should consider stripping them of their titles.
