Sky News Australia host, Piers Morgan, has added more fuel to the fiery feud between himself and Prince Harry after urging the 38-year-old prince to “stick with the Invictus Games” and to “stop trashing his family and the monarchy”.

The comments were made while Morgan was interviewing author and former tutor to Princes William and Harry, Rory Stewart.

Morgan questioned Stewart about the difficult relationship between the two brothers and Prince Harry’s return to the Invictus Games, a Paralympic-style sports event established to aid the rehabilitation of service members and veterans by giving them the challenge of competing.

“When I watch Harry do his Invictus Games thing, I think good on you,” Morgan began.

“When I think about his service to his country, I think good on him.

“When I see the other half of him running around the world, trashing his family and the monarchy and everything – I can’t stand it.”

Morgan has taken a strong position against Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle since they controversially stepped down as senior royals early in 2020. His comments have continued unabated even when the Prince alluded to the trauma caused fbyhis mother, Princess Diana’s, death in 1997. 

Morgan’s comments about Prince Harry received mixed reactions from the public.

Meanwhile in Dusseldorf, Prince Harry and Meghan appeared all smiles as they sat amongst Aussie supporters as Australia competed against Ukraine in the wheelchair basketball. This is despite rumours that all is not well between the pair.

The Australian Invictus Games team even presented Prince Harry with a pair of tiny Budgie Smugglers, as has become tradition, emblazoned with the flags of the world. Meghan reportedly laughed delightedly at her royal husband’s tiny swimming trunks.

Meghan arrived late at the Invictus Games, which kicked off on September 9, saying she had to get her children, Archie and Lilibet, settled at home.

Together at the games they handed out medals to children, posed for photographs, and appeared on stage with the Duchess describing the Invictus Games as an “amazing event”.
