Reporter Pierce Morgan, who has long been the main critic of the Dukes of Sussex, could not ignore an important event in the life of the couple – on June 4, Megan and Harry had a daughter. She was named Lilibeth Diana Mountbatten-Windsor. This name became the object of the journalist’s ridicule.
On the Australia’s Today show, Pierce tartly commented on the fact that the girl was given the nickname of her great-grandmother as an official name. Lilibet – this is how Queen Elizabeth was called in childhood, the backstage name was not previously communicated to the general public. Pierce noted that this is extremely ironic.
“We have a couple who have been trashing the royal family and the monarchy over the past few months, accusing them of all sins, and now they have named the child after the queen. What an irony, ”said the journalist.
To those asking for my reaction to the new royal baby, I am respecting her parents' constant pleas for privacy and declining to comment.

Pierce also joked on Twitter that he would not write anything about the daughter of Harry and Megan, as the couple “extremely cares about privacy.” Of course, this is obvious sarcasm, since the spouse’s confidant Omid Scobie regularly sends press releases to all sources about what is happening in the mansion in Montecito.
Earlier, the organizers of the Good Morning Britain show asked host Piers Morgan to return. He left the program with a scandal in March due to the consequences of harsh criticism of Prince Harry’s wife Meghan Markle after an interview that the couple gave to Oprah Winfrey. In it, they talked about racism and prejudice in the royal family.
The presenter accused them of lying, and refused to apologize, preferring to quit. At the same time, Markle threatened Morgan to sue him for libel.
