Piers Morgan berates 'pathetic' Prince Harry in rant over 'exploiting the Royals’ most personal secrets'

Piers Morgan has returned to Twitter to give his verdict on Prince Harry after the 38-year-old's bombshell new TV interview was shown.

Harry sat down with Tom Bradbury to discuss his new autobiography Spare - which is set to launch worldwide on Tuesday. He then followed up his ITV interview with a stateside chat with CBS' Anderson Cooper.

And Piers - who has continually criticised the Duke of Sussex and his wife, Meghan Markle since their decision to emigrate to the United States of America - couldn't bite his tongue on the new talks.

Following the first programme, the 57-year-old former Good Morning Britain presenter, wrote: "Never seen an unhappier ‘happy man’ in my life. Prince Harry’s a bitter, delusional, paranoid, family-trashing halfwit exposing & exploiting the Royals’ most personal secrets for gazillions whilst wanging on with jaw-dropping hypocrisy about media intrusion."

Capping off his tweet, Piers penned: "He’s pathetic."

His words came after the prince opened up to Tom about some of his most personal thoughts and memories, including the aftermath of his mother Princess Diana's death. Harry discussed his PTSD due to the traumatic loss when he was aged just 12.

Speaking to Tom, Harry admitted he had kept his emotions bottled up for a number of years following Diana's fatal car crash in Paris in 1997. He explained how he "lost a lot of memories" of his late mother - something he thinks was a "defence mechanism" and a way to deal with his loss.

And he also said he felt as though he had seen her in his dreams in the years that followed. Elsewhere in the candid discussion, Harry said he did not accuse the royals of racism in the explosive Oprah Winfrey interview two years ago.

Despite the perception of his comments at the time, Harry said "the British press said that", adding: "The difference between racism and unconscious bias, the two things are different."

Harry also opened up on his hope that one day he can reconcile with his brother and father, while slamming the royals for not responding to his latest comments.
