Piers Morgan claims CBS 'will exploit' Prince Philip's illness in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's explosive interview

PIERS Morgan claimed CBS "will exploit" Prince Philip's illness in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's explosive interview – as he demands they cancel it.

The Good Morning Britain presenter raged again on Tuesday against the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for their upcoming interview with Oprah.

Piers urged Prince Harry and Meghan cancel the chat out of respect for his ill grandfather.

This comes as the Royal Family were left "united in prayers" after Prince Philip was moved to a specialist hospital for treatment for an infection and heart condition.

Piers said: "CBS, I bet they won't move it, whatever happens.

"In fact, if something God forbid does happen with Prince Phillip, CBS will want to exploit it. Of course they will, it's an American network, they'll want to exploit it for ratings.

"The question is, what's Prince Harry going to do in that situation? If the Duke [of Edinburgh] takes a turn for the worst. What's he going to do?

"Is he going to allow his whining about what a tough life he hasfrom his LA mansion to go out on prime time TV?

"It's going to be a two hour whine-a-thon. Even the two second clip is about how tough his life is from his mansion in Santa Barbra in the middle of pandemic that's killed two and a half million people and left tens of millions of people destitute and penniless."

Harry and Meghan were urged on Sunday to delay their Oprah TV chat.


Two trailers promising “shocking” royal revelations were released as the frail Duke, 99, moved hospital for heart checks.

Senior royal sources said the family was “pretty appalled” by the idea of the recorded chat with Oprah Winfrey being broadcast while Philip lies in hospital.

In the trailers, Harry says he believed Meghan would suffer the same fate as his mother Diana and feared “history repeating itself”.

Meghan is asked why she felt her time as a duchess was “almost unsurvivable”.

The famous talk-show host also wanted to make it "clear to everybody there is no subject that is off limits".

The Duke will undergo testing for his heart problem at the hospital, which is one of the country’s leading specialist cardiac centres.

The Palace said: "The Duke of Edinburgh was transferred from King Edward VII’s Hospital to St Bartholomew’s Hospital where doctors will continue to treat him for an infection, as well as undertake testing and observation for a pre-existing heart condition. 

"The Duke remains comfortable and is responding to treatment but is expected to remain in hospital until at least the end of the week."
