Piers Morgan slammed by GMB viewers over remark about Meghan

He suggested she should move back to America

Piers Morgan has been criticised by Good Morning Britain viewers over his latest remarks about the Duchess of Sussex.

On Tuesday's show, the presenter, 54, ranted about Meghan and husband Harry's decision to have a private christening for their son Archie Harrison.

He even suggested Meghan should "go back to America" if she wanted to lead a private life.

He said: "You’re public people, all of you! In that moment [Royal christening], you’re public people. Stop your squealing about privacy, we don’t want to hear it.

"If you want to be private, go back to America and live privately, it’s pretty straight forward."

His co-star Susanna Reid hit back: "They don’t have to go back to America by the way."

But Piers ranted: "She does, she’s American!" to which Susanna said: "They don’t have to go back. She’s [Meghan] married an Englishman!"

Piers continued: "She doesn’t want to be a British public figure in the Royal family, go back to America."

Susanna said: "She wants to live here!" to which Piers argued: "It’s a joke."

Viewers were quick to share their thoughts on Twitter, with many slamming Piers' comments.

One person said: "It is so stressful to watch you in the morning @piersmorgan. This is your opinion but not everyone has to hear you go on and on. Just let it please go."

Another wrote: "He’s unhealthily obsessed about her. It’s off putting and not entertaining at all."

A third commented: "Why are you always soooooo rude to Meghan give it a rest now please."

However, others agreed with Piers.

One person tweeted: "Agree Meghan needs a return flight to US. It will happen sometime anyway so go back now!!"

Another wrote: "I agree with you @piersmorgan for once 😳 #publicPeople #PublicPurse."

A third added: "This is my point too!!! She basically wants her cake and eat it! She wants all the benefits of being a royal but on her terms!

"She basically thinks she's clever all the time like a power play. I think @piersmorgan is spot on. He just says what everyone is too scared to say."
