It didn’t take Piers Morgan long to make his feelings known about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s pregnancy announcement.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed they were expecting their second child on Sunday, releasing a new black and white photograph to celebrate the news.

A spokesperson for the couple said: “We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child.”

Shortly after the big announcement, Piers, a long time critic of the couple, took to Twitter, labelling the photo “cheesy” and accusing the couple of hypocrisy,

“BREAKING: Harry & Meghan have announced they’re pregnant and released this cheesy photo of themselves to ensure the media gives the story about their private life more prominence – in their latest courageous effort to stop the same media focusing on their private life,” he tweeted.https://platform.twitter.com/embed/Tweet.html?dnt=false&embedId=twitter-widget-0&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1361038036700696580&lang=en-gb&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fuk.yahoo.com%2Fnews%2Fpiers-morgan-meghan-markle-prince-harry-pregnancy-photograph-twitter-072343148.html&theme=light&widgetsVersion=889aa01%3A1612811843556&width=550px

When Piers’ rival, BBC Breakfast’s Dan Walker congratulated the couple on Twitter, Piers responded with “Arise, Sir Poodle”.

The Good Morning Britain presenter also told journalist Keir Simmons to “get a grip” after he tweeted the couple his best wishes.https://platform.twitter.com/embed/Tweet.html?dnt=false&embedId=twitter-widget-1&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1361054818832437251&lang=en-gb&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fuk.yahoo.com%2Fnews%2Fpiers-morgan-meghan-markle-prince-harry-pregnancy-photograph-twitter-072343148.html&theme=light&widgetsVersion=889aa01%3A1612811843556&width=550pxhttps://platform.twitter.com/embed/Tweet.html?dnt=false&embedId=twitter-widget-2&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1361058448616656900&lang=en-gb&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fuk.yahoo.com%2Fnews%2Fpiers-morgan-meghan-markle-prince-harry-pregnancy-photograph-twitter-072343148.html&theme=light&widgetsVersion=889aa01%3A1612811843556&width=550pxhttps://platform.twitter.com/embed/Tweet.html?dnt=false&embedId=twitter-widget-3&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1361203595144757248&lang=en-gb&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fuk.yahoo.com%2Fnews%2Fpiers-morgan-meghan-markle-prince-harry-pregnancy-photograph-twitter-072343148.html&theme=light&widgetsVersion=889aa01%3A1612811843556&width=550px

The Duke and Duchess, who live in Los Angeles with their son Archie, have made it clear that want to keep their private lives out of the spotlight since stepping back from their royal duties.

Last year, Piers vowed he’d no longer be talking about Harry and Meghan on Good Morning Britain “for the foreseeable future”.

His comments came after the pair sent a letter to four UK tabloids, saying there’d be no further “corroboration” and “zero engagement” between them and the tabloids in question.

Their statement emphasised “this is not in any way a blanket policy for all media,” but the couple will no longer “offer themselves up as currency for an economy of click bait and distortion”.

Piers had previously branded Harry and Meghan “repulsive, deluded narcissistic tools” on Twitter for making the announcement while millions around the world have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
