Good Morning Britain’s Piers Morgan has revealed that his mum warned him not to say anything controversial about the new royal baby.

Piers explained that his mother Gabrielle sent him a text, worrying about what he might say live on air following the latest royal arrival.

It comes after Piers joked that Prince Harry and Meghan’s little one might be raised as a “gender-fluid vegan” on Twitter.

The 54-year-old presenter read out the message his mum sent him live on GMB today.

The text said: “Piers, I’m really worried about you knocking Harry and Meghan about his baby. Please don’t. It doesn’t seem appropriate.

“I’ll be worrying all night about what you might say.”

Piers then broke into laughter, as his co-host Susanna Reid added: “She’s had a sleepless night.”
