The book isn’t officially released since Tuesday (10 January) but extracts have been revealed which saw Harry claim that Prince William pushed him to the ground during a confrontation over Harry’s wife Meghan Markle in 2019.

Harry sat down with ITV on Sunday, but one person who definitely wasn’t impressed by the whole thing was Morgan.

Morgan commented after Harry said he was "very happy" and "in a better place than I've ever been… I think that probably angers some people, infuriates others, because just by the nature of me leaving.”

The broadcaster and long-term critic of the Sussexes, wrote: “Never seen an unhappier ‘happy man’ in my life.”

He added: “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. He’s pathetic.”

Harry spoke to Bradby about his current relationship with the royal family and his upcoming book release on Sunday.

When asked whether he was ‘looking back too much’, Harry replied: “We always knew that these two projects, both the Netflix documentary and the book - one being our story and one very much being my story - they were look-back projects.”

He added: “They were necessary, they were essential for historical fact and significance. I don't want my kids or other people of that age growing up thinking 'Oh wow, this is what happens', like no that's not what happened. This is what happened.”
