Piers Morgan is still smarting over Meghan Markle’s rumoured ‘photo ban’ at Wimbledon, as he launched another rant about the Duchess of Sussex on Good Morning Britain today.
After suggesting she ‘go back to America’ if she doesn’t want to be a public figure, Piers warned that Meghan would ‘drive the public nuts’ by being fiercely private.
It came after Meghan and two of her friends were seated on Court One at Wimbledon last week to watch Serena Williams play.
Media consultant Sally Jones claimed in the Telegraph that she was snapping pictures of Serena when a member of the royal protection team asked her not to take photos as Meghan was attending the event in a ‘private capacity’.
Piers said on Wednesday’s episode: ‘I’m not a fan of the way Meghan and Harry seem to want their cake and eat it. It’s not a private visit, you’re there as a member of the royal family.
‘Meghan’s gotta learn she’s not a celeb anymore. With all the freebies that come your way as Duchess, we pay for that, you put all that together the deal is when you’re there you smile. People take a picture it’s part of the deal.

He added that the royal wanted to ‘have her cake and eat it’ and was ‘behaving like a Hollywood actress which she is’.
Surprisingly Piers clarified that he wanted Meghan to eventually be a ‘successful Duchess’.
‘But I don’t at the moment,’ he said. ‘This kind of behaviour will drive the media and the public nuts.
‘The publicity tap is here and the moment you turn it on to promote yourself, it’s very difficult to turn that tap back off as and when you feel like it.’
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
