The outspoken GMB host, 55, has been a fervent critic of Prince Harry and Meghan.

And now, ahead of the couple’s controversial Oprah Winfrey interview, he has bashed her former Suits co-star Patrick J Adams.

How did Piers respond?

It didn’t take long for Piers to respond.

He subsequently bit back, saying: “Actually, what’s ‘OBSCENE’ is your friend trashing her husband’s family on global TV as the Queen’s 99-tear-old husband lies in hospital.

“How dare you attack our Royal Family like this, you jumped-little twerp.”
