Piers Morgan, 55, has hit out at Prince Harry, 36, following his comments about his financial concerns while speaking to Oprah Winfrey alongside his wife Meghan Markle, 39. The former Good Morning Britain host unleashed a furious rant aimed at the Duke of Sussex when he joined Tucker Carlson on FOX News to discuss the royal couple and his exit from the ITV show this evening.
Piers began by praising Harry for serving the Army for 10 years, but then questioned “what has happened” to him since his courageous efforts.
He fumed to host Tucker: “But what’s happened to that guy?
“He’s turned into a whiny brat.
“He’s in his mid-30s crying his dad won’t fund him financially.”

It comes after Harry told Oprah that he was “totally cut off financially” when he and Meghan decided to quit their roles as Senior Royals and move to America.
He said: “I was totally cut off financially.
“My family cut me off – if I didn’t have what my mum left me, we wouldn’t have been able to do this.
“All I wanted to do was keep my family safe.”

Harry also said: “We didn’t have a plan. [The Netflix deal] was suggested by somebody else by the point of where my family literally cut me off financially, and I had to afford security for us.
“[They cut me off] In the first quarter of 2020.”
It is believed Harry was left around £10million by Princess Diana, alongside her priceless jewellery collection.
This combined with around £7million from the Queen Mother and other inheritances, Harry is believed to be worth around £36million.
