Piers Morgan has slammed a former co-star of Meghan Markle after he criticised the Royal Family.
And now, ahead of the couple’s controversial Oprah Winfrey interview, he has bashed her former Suits co-star Patrick J Adams.
It’s OBSCENE that the Royal Family, who’s newest member is currently GROWING INSIDE OF HER, is promoting and amplifying accusations of “bullying” against a woman who herself was basically forced to flea the UK in order protect her family and her own mental health.

Why did Piers Morgan react to Patrick’s tweets about Meghan Markle?
Previously, 39-year-old Patrick had defended his friend in a lengthy Twitter rant.
He began: “Meghan Markle and I spent the better part of a decade working together on Suits.
“From day one she was an enthusiastic, kind, cooperative, giving, joyful and supportive member of our television family.
“It sickened me to read the endless racist, slanderous, clickbaiting vitriol spewed in her direction from all manner of media across the UK…
“…and the world but I also knew that Meghan was stronger than people realized or understood and they would regret underestimating her.”
He also said: “It’s OBSCENE that the Royal Family, whose newest member is currently GROWING INSIDE OF HER…
“…is promoting and amplifying accusations of ‘bullying’ against a woman who herself was basically forced to flee the UK in order to protect her family and her own mental health.”
Actually, what's 'OBSCENE' is your friend trashing her husband's family on global TV as the Queen's 99-yr-old husband lies in hospital. How dare you attack our Royal Family like this, you jumped-up little twerp. https://t.co/pYUuCLje3w
