"Exploiting Diana's death": Piers Morgan unleashes on Harry and Meghan

"Exploiting Diana's death": Piers Morgan unleashes on Harry and Meghan

British TV host Piers Morgan has gone on an extraordinary rant against Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, and claimed the pair are “exploiting Diana’s death to make millions form investment banks.”

The controversial critic took a swipe at the couple after hearing Prince Harry discuss mental health at the JPMorgan Chase’s Alternative Investment Summit.

During the speech, the Duke spoke openly to the high-profile guests about being in therapy for seven years in an attempt to emotionally deal with the intense trauma of losing his wife.

A source told The Sun: “He talked about how the events of his childhood affected him and he has been talking to a mental health professional.

“Harry also touched on Megxit, saying while it has been very difficult he does not regret their decision.”

The pair were seen for the first time together since fleeing the UK in attendance at the lavish event in Miami.

Writing in an explosive column for the Mail Online, he said: “There’s a big difference between talking about it to raise public awareness of grief-related mental health issues – and doing it privately for a big fat fee to a bunch of super-rich bankers, business tycoons, politicians and celebrities.

“By commercially exploiting his mother’s death to make vast pots of money like this, Harry is surely behaving in exactly the same way he professes to despise from the media?”

It is unknown if or how much the Duke was paid for the event at 1 Hotel South Beach.

However, the royal pair are understood to have been flown in a private jet, owned by JPMorgan Chase, from Vancouver for Palm Beach, Florida.

Morgan also took the time to point out the couple had previously been criticised for their high-flying ways – taking four private jet flights in just 11 days despite speaking on the importance of preserving our earth.
