Piers Morgan’s comments come in response to a report which claimed the married pair’s popularity had declined in UK opinion polls, since they stepped down as senior royals. According to Ipsos Mori, Prince Harry’s approval rating from Britons had dropped by 50 points, compared to when he announced his engagement to Meghan Markle in 2017.
The decline happened following their announcement that they would no longer serve as senior members of the Royal Family.
Meghan’s popularity with Britons has also slumped from 55 per cent in October 2019 to 32 per cent now.
The rating comparison was shared on Twitter by royal correspondent Jack Royston.
Reacting to the report, Piers wrote: “Surprise surprise… the British public see right through this shameless pair of trash-talking chancers.”
Many of the presenter’s 7.9 million followers flocked to his post to share their thoughts.
One wrote: “It’s about time you got over these 2.”
A second commented: “It baffles me that anyone cares about this.”
“And yet here you are, still talking about them,” a third penned.
The father-of-four is no stranger to ranting about the couple, particularly Meghan.
His issue with the Suits star is said to have started after she allegedly ghosted him in 2016.
He previously claimed that he didn’t hear from the ex actress after she met her now husband Prince Harry.
Piers was particularly vocal about Meghan following the pair’s interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year.

At first, the Duchess of Sussex shared her version of events from her time in the Royal Family.
She told Oprah she suffered with her mental health and felt suicidal during her first pregnancy.
Meghan claimed that when she asked the Palace for help, her request was declined.
The couple later alleged that an unnamed member of the family had “concerns” about the colour of their son Archie’s skin.
Piers ranted about the pair’s interview on Good Morning Morning the following day, sparking over 57,000 Ofcom complaints.
The backlash cost him his job as he later revealed he was asked to apologise, but refused.
He has since said he still doesn’t believe a word the duo said in what was deemed a bombshell interview.
