On Saturday, legal representatives for the Duke of Sussex published a letter saying he intends to pursue legal action against the Home Office due to their refusal to allow him to pay for his own police protection.
Piers Morgan has now blasted the Duke, claiming the royal is “behaving like a shameless hypocrite” in a savage attack.
In an opinion piece, Mr Morgan said Harry is “behaving like a shameless, deluded, woefully entitled hypocrite” with his planned legal action.
Writing in The Sun, he said: “If he goes through with his threat, it will be the first time any royal has ever sued Her Majesty’s Government, and, of course, causes the Queen yet another massive headache at the worst possible time.”
Harry’s legal representative said in a statement on Saturday: “The UK will always be Prince Harry’s home and a country he wants his wife and children to be safe in. With the lack of police protection, comes too great a personal risk.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex personally fund a private security team for their family, yet that security cannot replicate the necessary police protection needed whilst in the UK.
“In the absence of such protection, Prince Harry and his family are unable to return to his home.”
