What did Prince Harry say about the pandemic?

Meanwhile, the dad-of-one, also said he’d even wondered what the ‘point’ of having children was.

Why is Piers Morgan so angry at the Duke of Sussex?

“I don’t mind being a raindrop if it makes you feel better, I’ll be a raindrop.

“I would just take the raindrop lectures better if they didn’t come from somebody who uses private planes like a taxi service.

“That’s just my point. That’s something that just really grates with me. Seriously, 16 bathrooms, private jet taxis.

“Stop using private planes, private planes are one of the biggest guzzlers of the carbon footprint imaginable.

“They use them like taxis, stop using private planes. Actually be the raindrop you want to be. Seriously, be a raindrop yourself.

“Shut down some of the baths. Stop using the private planes. What you’ve got to do mate, you’ve got to practice what you preach.

“It’s no good preaching to people. I want him to practice what he preaches.”

However, his co-host Susanna Reid, 49, told Piers he was being “ridiculous.”

She also argued that is unlikely he uses all 16 of his mansion’s bathrooms.

Finally, an exasperated Susanna said: “What do you want him to do? Go and live in a yurt? Not shower at all?”
