Piers Morgan was left stunned after being called “a petty, fragile-man baby” by a Good Morning Britain guest during a debate about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu, a lawyer and activist, clashed with the presenter during a debate about Harry and Meghan’s upcoming interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Meghan and Harry last week announced they would not be returning to the royal family and had filmed an interview with Winfrey for US network CBS.

Morgan asked Mos-Shogbamimu: “Did you in your blind adulation shudder when you heard that this privacy-minded couple had decided to spill their guts on Oprah for 90 minutes of primetime American telly for gazillions, but also that they chose to film it on the very day that the Duke of Edinburgh was taken into hospital?”
