Piers Morgan slams Beckhams at Royal Wedding

He branded Victoria a "sourpuss"

Piers Morgan laid into David and Victoria Beckham on Monday’s Good Morning Britain for their antics at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding.

The presenter, 53, slammed the former footballer after he was caught on camera chewing gum at the nuptials on Saturday.

He also called fashion designer Victoria a “sourpuss” for failing to crack a smile as she arrived at the ceremony.

During a discussion about the famous faces who attended the wedding, Piers said: “[David] gets in church and what’s the one thing you don’t do in church?

“You’ve got an issue with him chewing gum,” Susanna Reid replied.

“I mean he goes into church and sits down next to Nicholas Soames, the pillar of the establishment and a man related to Winston Churchill.

“And what does old Golden Balls do? He chews gum.”

Piers and Susanna then pretended to chew gum to try and do an impression of David at the wedding.

Piers then mocked David’s accent, saying: “What time ya startin’ then luv?

“You don’t chew gum in church. If there’s something that will stop him getting a knighthood…”

But Piers didn’t stop his criticism of the Beckhams there.

He then moved on to David’s wife Victoria, calling her a “sourpuss.”

The mum-of-four was accused of being “miserable” by viewers watching the wedding on Saturday.

“You’re at the sunniest and happiest wedding in the world and you turn up looking like…” he said, as a clip of the Spice Girl arriving at the service was shown.

“Go on. Give us your most severe pout,” Piers added.

Defending Victoria, Susanna said: “She’s a little bit self-conscious about her smile.”

Piers interrupted: “Oh please. She thinks she’s the new Audrey Hepburn, no you’re not you’re the Audrey from the Rovers Return love.”

Many viewers agreed with Piers’ critique of David and Victoria and shared their thoughts on Twitter.

One person said: “Totally agree with Piers chewing gum in church is RUDE!” while another tweeted: “Piers talking about Victoria beckham, that’s made my morning.”
