Piers Morgan threw yet another tantrum after Prince Harry called him out

Last Friday, we learned that Mirror Group and Prince Harry had settled the rest of the outstanding hacking claims and illegal newsgathering claims. Harry won his limited case last December, but there were more than a hundred hacking claims (just from Harry) left to be adjudicated. Harry publicly promised to see the case through to the end, to continue testifying against the Mirror, unless the Mirror agreed to his terms. The Mirror’s lawyers put up a minor fight for a month or so, then capitulated. We only know that the Mirror has to pay what is essentially a down payment on the settlement, with an immediate payment of £400K.

Harry’s lawyer, David Sherborne, was in court on Friday for all of the paperwork, and to inform the court that a settlement had been reached. Inside and outside of the court, Sherborne delivered Harry’s statement, in which Harry not only called out the illegality of the Mirror’s editors and journalists, but name-checked Piers Morgan specifically. Harry said (through Sherborne): “We call again for the authorities to uphold the rule of law and to prove that no one is above it. That includes Mr Morgan, who as editor, knew perfectly well what was going on, as the Judge held. Even his own employer realized it simply could not call him as a witness of truth. His contempt for the Court’s ruling and his continued attacks ever since demonstrate why it was so important to obtain a clear and detailed judgment.” After being name-checked once again by Harry, Piers Morgan promptly wet himself and threw a shaky tantrum:

“I think that invading the privacy of the royal family is utterly reprehensible and on that I share Prince Harry’s opinion. I just wish he’d stop doing it.” Piers literally hacked and blagged the Windsors for years and now he’s some moral agent when it comes to privacy?? I guess this is all he has though – “Harry is invading his own privacy!!” GTFO.

Also: Deadline points out that around the same time as the settlement, the NY Post published a piece by Piers in which he was crying about Harry’s quick visit to the UK last week. Piers wrote that Prince William “would rather shoot himself than be in the same room as someone he now views as a despicable traitor.” Well… that’s a vivid image.

    Seems that Piers is pretty close to being Dan Woottoned.

    ETA, just looked it up: wait, Wootton has his job back? Disappointing.

  2. equality says:

    Prince Harry’s statement is intelligent. Contrast that with anything PM says. Or with statements put out by the palaces (that they doubtless think are clever). The police and courts need to do their job and start prosecuting some of this.

    • Jais says:

      There’s nothing to stop the police from investigating PM so why aren’t they? I wana see him criminally investigated fr.

    • Yes Harry is calling out Morgan and I hope he continues to do so. Morgan has no job so is on to YouTube. My wish for him is that the karma bus continues to hit him.

    • Darkwing Duck says:

      Harry is very well advised but I cannot see that a criminal prosecution will be launched off the back of this , there are multiple reasons for that in my opinion but 2 I will mention. The first are the very different standards of proof in civil and criminal trials and the second is that I’m fairly sure that the decision to prosecute would have to be taken by the Crown Prosecution Sevice and the current head of that, the Director of Public Prosections, is a man who previously represented Rebekah Brooks in these exact matters!

      With that being said, wider public and political disapproval might be enough to turn the tide. To me, it’s only in the case against Associated, with a high profile ‘civilian’ victim Baroness Lawrence, that I could see triggering high level action, but that would take for us to have a new PM who is not afraid of the British newspapers and I’m skeptical Kier Starmer (though he was DPP himself during the previous hacking prosecutions) is that guy…

    Piers invoking William does not make William look good to say the least

      This

    • Cessily says:

      My thoughts exactly… I also think this ruling is part of the reason that Peggy went into hiding using whatever is going on with his spouse’s mysterious illness/incident as the reason. This man hates to loose and piers is one of his frontline men.. like every coward in history he ran to hide knowing that frontline is crumbling. He is not a leader that will ever go down with the ship, he will be in the lifeboat in a full flotation body suit observing and learning while being incandescent with rage. Such a joke when they act like he is actually going to do something or anything. If this man could keep the duchy accounts and still receive his government income and abdicate he would ditch that job in a heartbeat.

      • “He is not a leader that will ever go down with the ship, he will be in the lifeboat in a full flotation body suit observing and learning while being incandescent with rage.”

        That should be in the first paragraph of his bio

      • Carrie says:

        @Cessily
        So agree. AND if he could have the title of King, well that would be just the icing for him.

    • WiththeAmerican says:

      I’m so sick of william’s endless raging tantrums and Piers echoing them.

      If William wants to shoot himself, I’m sorry for him, but That sounds like a mental health crisis for which he should seek immediate help.

      And he should stop raging crying about his violence in public it’s starting to be really disturbing. Is he going to end up in jail? What would it take for a Prince to end up in jail?

      • MinorityReport says:

        What would it take? Well, Andrew is roaming free after being charged* with rape and human trafficking. And plenty of people don’t believe Diana’s death was an accident, so murder probably wouldn’t do it, either.

        ETA: I guess he wasn’t charged. He was credibly accused.

  4. Tessa says:

    Serves piers right.

  5. Brassy Rebel says:

    Harry wrote a memoir which is legal. PM oversaw “journalists” hacking which is illegal.
    Morgan: Harry did what I did!

    • WiththeAmerican says:

      I mean, piers’ claim is so stupid that it’s insulting. Harry’s wrote about HIS life. Piers also writes about Harry’s life. Only one of them has ownership of the story and it’s not Piers. And as you say, Piers violated the law to do his stories, ffs. These people.

  6. Brit says:

    Harry and Meghan and the karma surrounding them when it comes to their critics has been fascinating to watch. People have lost jobs, reputation and their sanity. Piers doing all this was literally in vain because he’s had a slow downfall and that family didn’t help him. Going from CNN, GMB, Talent Shows to a YouTuber. lol.

    • Lady D says:

      My introduction to PM was Britain’s Got Talent and the incredibly talented Susan Boyle. It was the sneer on his face when Susan walked onstage that made me instantly dislike him. He had nothing but contempt for her until she started singing. Also, going on and on about how incredible it was that ‘she’ could sing like that, afterwards. He’s a garbage human being and he proves it on sight.

  7. Lady Digby says:

    PM boasted about listening to Paul Macca singing We can work it out on Heather Mill’s phone. How is that not an admission of guilt regarding phone hacking? Will Cams continue to be chummy with him in the wake of the verdict?

    • roooth says:

      A marriage was falling apart, a couple was trying to save it, and assh*le adulterer Morgan was eavesdropping and laughing at the people going through one of life’s biggest stresses, along with the people around him, partying at the misfortune of others

  8. Beverley says:

    At this point, the only thing that makes sense is that the police are corrupt, perhaps even taking bribes from Piss Moron to ignore the allegations. Too many instances of indifference to criminal acts by people in high places contributes to the assumption that the cops are bought off.

    The judge clearly ascertained PM’s legal culpability and confirmed the validity of Omid Scobie’s testimony against Morgan, so what are the corrupt police waiting for?

    • Beverley – you are right, the police are corrupt and it has been proven that some of them were even on the payroll to illegally obtain info for the BM.

      If the Met prosecutes, they are afraid Pee Man will expose their involvement.

      I hold out 0 hope that the police bring charges.

      My question is, can Harry sue Pee Man for criminal acts when it is obvious the Met won’t do it?

      • Beverley says:

        Pinniped and Poodle, I wish I knew. I’m not familiar with UK legal proceedings. In the US, a person may make a citizen’s arrest – that is, detain a person until police arrive. But the final decision for bringing formal charges rests with the district attorney’s office.

        Harry’s case has highlighted Piers Morgan’s criminal acts. It seems like an open&shut case. But like you, I won’t hold my breath for the police to do their jobs.

      • I mean sue him like E. Jean Carroll sued Trump for raping her. Like Ron Goldman’s family sued OJ.

    • SarahCS says:

      Based on what I was reading yesterday from a recent report the met are too busy ignoring missing children and referring to underage girls who have been abused as ‘promiscuous’ so they clearly don’t have any time to get involved in this.

  9. Maddy says:

    Piers is a vile sack of _ _ _ _.

    I randomly came across a somewhat recent picture of Piers with Beatrice and Eugenie, that once again reminded me how messed up that whole entire family is. Zero loyalty. Everyone out for their own gain.

  10. Jay says:

    I have seen Harry labeled a “traitor” from Morgan and some of his most deranged followers and it always makes me think that they really mean “race traitor”.

  11. Amy Bee says:

    Whatever Piers. Byline is estimating that Harry will get £2 million plus legal fees.

  12. Nanea says:

    P!ss Moron *really* must know where the bodies are buried*, otherwise he’d have been kicked to the curb long ago.

    (* Not only the BRF’s, but also those of the Murdoch family and friends, those of British politicians, high-ranking Met Police officers etc etc.)

    Instead he gets 50 million for three years, no idea if £ or $, from Murdoch to be a YouTuber because no one cared for PM unhinged and unwatchable. Because otherwise he’d cost Murdoch billions.

    But it’s about time the Brits – journalists, law, police, politics – cut their losses and go after him.

    The only thing he reliably does right now is incite hatred and lie about… nearly everything.

    • WiththeAmerican says:

      He obviously has hacked people high up to protect himself, he had that habit at work so of course he did it to police, PM, House of Lords, royal family, and is using that to control them.

      It seems there is no authority that has oversight over all of those people, so piers is free to YouTube his way into more lawsuits.

      • Pinkosaurus says:

        Here’s a question for the lawyers, if PM defames Harry on YouTube, can Harry sue under US laws? He’s been constrained in his lawsuits to the British court system so far. I don’t think PM will be able to constrain himself on YT and I’d love to see an E Jean Carroll style serial court beat down for PM’s constant false and defamatory attacks on H&M.

    • Athena says:

      At this point it’s not just Piers and Andrew, we all know where the bodies are buried.

  13. Macky says:

    Piers had a good run. He is lucky he got so many chances. I don’t know if he ever got a HUGE payday but the cnn gig should’ve been nice money. He owns some Bars with his brothers.

    Its time for him to retire or find something else to do. It’s obvious that he has been kicked out of British entertainment and social news. He only has the royal family to talk about. That’s is ridiculous. Piers has been in the gossip business for like 30 years. It seems to me he has burnt a lot of bridges. He writes about Harry and Megan like they owe him. It’s not that it’s just he doesn’t have any real news.

    He should’ve been able to parley his tabloid days into either politics or studio news. No one seems to be speaking to him.

    • Cessily says:

      His last contract was for £50m.. if the man doesn’t have enough money for retirement by now that is on him. If he was smart he would go off grid and remain silent and pray the Tory’s and BRF protect him, but this is Piers and I don’t think he is that smart.

    • 1969tlm says:

      @Macky, except for Sharon Osborn and that gremlin of a daughter of hers. Of course no one likes either of them either. Ozzy seems okay, but Sharon is vile.

  14. aquarius64 says:

    Message to all royal reporters and BM: if you choose to ride or die for the Crown the Crown will lose your contact information if you may face the dock.

  15. Just Jade says:

    It’s time for this POS sewage Rat to go away. He spent 5 years trying to intimidate Harry by harassing his wife and when that did not work he started to use the royal family name to see if they would come to his rescue. I hope he gets everything he wishes for the Sussexes and all his victims. Reap what you sow loser!

  16. bisynaptic says:

    Remember when Piers Morgan sounded sane?

    • Teagirl says:

      No but I do remember when his fly was open.
      That’s how I picture him.

    • Harla A Brazen Hussy says:

      I remember watching WandK’s wedding, Piers was one of the tv commentators along with Anderson Cooper and yeah, he seemed completely sane and not overly fawning about the royals. I also recall him saying before Harry and Meghan’s wedding that ( I am paraphrasing), “does Meghan know that she’s marrying into a family with a very dodgy record on race?”.

      It should be a college class, following the trajectory of Piers’ mental decline and descent into hate filled misogyny. He and so many other men have declined in such a similar way, that there must be something in the water.

      • Beverley says:

        He wanted Meghan so bad, probably still does. When it became clear that she only has eyes for Harry, he began to lust-hate her. He acts like a spurned incel. His wife should be mortified!

        Piers has it bad for the Black Duchess and apparently feels some type of way about his obsession.

  17. ElleE says:

    Wow. PM was such a sucker for the ballrooms, the palaces, the art, the noble history, the food and the luxury that being royal-adjacent afforded him and now he’s realizing he has none of the protection or the wealth that goes along with that and he was used.

    Should’ve studied his own country’s history better!

  18. sevenblue says:

    I don’t understand how it is legal that Piers has been on TV talking sh*t about H&M for years now, even when they were living in UK. He knew that Harry didn’t do any settlement and can come after the crimes committed against him and basically all his performance at GMB was witness intimidation, as far as I can see. The media relationships are tight in UK as we saw what they did to Omid since he didn’t stick to the official RF narrative. So, there is no doubt GMB producers knew why Piers was going after H&M almost every day. How is any of this legal?

    • Good question, the closest US comparison I can find is Fox News (murdoch) and Hillary Clinton.

      Pizzagate was a thing. Thanks to Fox news some of our lesser endowed citizens still think Hillary was running a child prostitution ring out of a pizza store…

      • roooth says:

        And HIllary ran that ring out of the pizzaria’s basement – which didn’t exist – but people were still killed when a FOX watching nutbag took a gun to the pizzaria to save the children.

  19. Over it says:

    Cry harder you little man baby B-th. I love misery for piss the trash heap Morgan

  20. kelleybelle says:

    The POS hacked phones and knew about the hacked phones for years … and he thinks it’s reprehensible now? Keep screaming into the void, Piers, you vile, tantrumy idiot. Go cry in your beer with Will.

  21. Saucy&Sassy says:

    What is quite interesting is when P!ss was done with his statement and someone asked: What about you? Do you wish you hadn’t done it? And P!ss didn’t respond. Perfect end.

    Prince Freaking Harry is doing what he has committed doing by putting these tabloids in Court to answer for what they’ve done. He wants to make it their illegalities stop because instead of giving them money it is costing them money. It is also showing the world exactly how these tabloids in the UK work. IMO, their international reputations have taken hit after hit. Journalists in other countries are watching. The Murdoch (and his ilk) who own media in the US are going to be tainted by association if they don’t start being more careful about what they put out there. There are enough people who know which of the media are owned by the fascist right-wing. This is the part that is so satisfying about these lawsuits. Now, if they could get it through their heads that their reach is greatly diminished from the empire days, there could be change. That’s up to the owners of that media.

  22. Mary Pester says:

    Psst mighty mouth Morgan, Harry doesn’t invade his family’s privacy, incase you hadn’t realised, he IS PART OF THE ROYAL FAMILY,. Now I know that for several years camzilla has had her hand up your arse working your lips, but have you tried phoning her since this settlement. Her answerphone has a new message, it says “sorry, the Queen can’t come to the phone right now, but if you would like to leave your name and number she will get one of her servants to phone you back, unless of course your name is Clarkson or Morgan, goodbye.
    Your out peirce, but not for long because the karma bus has a new route and ends in perjury! Lovely little town just waiting for your visit and by the way, you really, really shouldn’t have shit on so many people on your way up, especially when the have diaries 😂😉

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      Mary Pester, I hope he truly is on the outside now. It gives me hope that we’re going to see more on the outside by the time Harry gets finished with his lawsuits.

  23. Me the queen says:

    Old queen needs to shut

  24. Jenn Jameson says:

    He thinks he is so clever. I dislike this person so much that I worry for my soul. He makes excrement smell like lavender and vanilla. I prey rot on his being and that the hounds of hell take him home.
