Piers Morgan has launched a vicious tirade at Omid Scobie, the co-author of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s biography Finding Freedom. Scobie had criticised photos of Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton during their trip to the Caribbean.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Kingston in Jamaica, where photos showed them greeting local children who were reaching through a wire gate, and posing next to a statue of Bob Marley.
The snaps have been branded “tone-deaf” and “awkward” given the British Empire’s history of colonialism and slavery.
Scobie wrote on Twitter, where he has 79.9k followers: “I do wonder what the hell palace organisers were thinking with some of yesterday’s photo moments.
“The planning and recon that goes into every step of these engagements is next level, so how did no one think to avoid certain imagery?
This need calling out and for more in the media to pick it up.”
@peterfarman1 added: “Well said piers”. (sic)
Piers also took aim at Harry yesterday, branding him a “little twerp” for “bleating” about his problems while the war rages in Ukraine.
The Duke of Sussex has claimed he suffered “substantial hurt, embarrassment and distress” after a Mail on Sunday report about one of his other court cases.
