Egg on their face?

Others commented that any such knighthood would result in metaphorical egg on the faces of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who Piers has long-running beef with.

Others said a knighthood would serve as “the best revenge” following his fall out with the couple.

“OMG that would be the best Meghan and Harry revenge if they gave you a knighthood!!” one Piers fan declared.

“Imagine the look on their faces,” said another.
