After spending a lot of 2021 issuing pops at Meghan Markle, Piers Morgan has again taken to social media to have another dig following Kate Middleton’s Royal Carols triumph
Piers Morgan is ending the year like he spent most of it – having little pot shots at Meghan Markle.
He has appeared to throw shade at the Duchess of Sussex once more as he lavished praise on Kate Middleton.
After she played the piano in a televised concert for the very first time, on ITV programme Royal Carols: Together at Christmas, Piers liked what he saw.
Taking to twitter, he uploaded a photo of the Duchess of Cambridge in action at Westminster Abbey.
He simply captioned the shot: “A proper Duchess.”
Following her performance, the former Good Morning Britain presenter Piers called her “very cool” and “ballsy” for taking to the stage in front of millions.

He may not have mentioned her by name, but it was a clear dig across the Atlantic.
His earlier poke at Meghan – who he famously dubbed Princes Pinocchio – would come as no surprise to his followers.
A row over his comments earlier this year was one of TV’s most dramatic moments in 2021.
Piers quit GMB earlier this year following complaints regarding his reaction to Meghan’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.
She spoke about her mental health and announced she suffering from suicidal thoughts.
Piers said he didn’t believe the accusations the Duchess of Sussex was making, and poured cold water over her accusations of racist remarks within the Royal Family.
He called the Oprah chat “vile destructive self-serving nonsense”.
Later in the year, he ranted: “These two want to have their royal cake and eat it. They’re very happy to trade off their royal titles, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, when it comes to negotiating hundreds of millions of dollars with companies like Spotify and Netflix.
“But at the same time they want the right to trash the Royal Family and the monarchy, and therefore the Queen who’s the head of the monarchy, on global television repeatedly now. They keep doing this.
The pair were once close but their friendship broke down spectacularly.
Piers claiming he was ‘ghosted” by Meghan after she went to meet Prince Harry following their pub meet up.
But when news of their engagement was announced in November 2017, Piers was one of the first people to congratulate them.
Joking about his friendship with Meghan disappearing, Piers wrote: “Hearty congratulations, Harry, you picked a real keeper (even if your romance did destroy my beautiful friendship with the amazing Meghan Markle ).”
