Piers Morgan has labelled Prince Harry a “hypocrite” after the royal family were reportedly “furious” with the latest storylines in The Crown.

The Good Morning Britain host insists the dad-of-one should have known better than to sign a £75 million deal with Netflix after “exploiting and trashing his family” in the fourth series of the hit show.

He also stated Harry “can’t pretend to have been caught by surprise” by the show’s plot, which includes Prince Charles’ affair.

What did Piers Morgan say about Prince Harry?

Writing in his Mail Online column, Piers, 55, said: “He therefore knew exactly how Netflix had rubbished his family before he ever signed his deal.”

Piers also suggested that Harry had signed the deal to “offer a protective blanket against any future season of The Crown”.

He went on: “If Harry had any integrity left, he’d tear up his Netflix deal right now and apologise to his family for colluding with the enemy in such a distasteful manner.”

The GMB star later added: “Instead, Harry will keep the Netflix millions and by doing so, he is giving his own tacit royal seal of approval to the company exploiting and trashing his family.”
