PIERS Morgan has blasted Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's "vain-glorious celebrity bulls***" in a post on Instragram.

The GMB host posted a recent picture of Prince William and Kate Middleton waiting at a train on their way to pay tribute to NHS workers.

He captioned it: "Great photo. As the Sussexes do their vain-glorious celebrity bulls*** thing in California, the Cambridges quietly go up and down the UK on a train, paying tribute to our pandemic heroes."

"My admiration for these two has grown hugely this year," he added.

His comments come as royal biographer Angela Levin blasted Meghan Markle and Prince Harry as 'banal and pathetic' after the pair reportedly planned their own version of the Queen's 'honours list'.

Levin slammed the move while speaking to talkRADIO's Mike Graham.

    PRINCE HARRY SUGGESTS COVID WAS 'PUNISHMENT FROM MOTHER NATURE'

    Last week, Prince Harry suggested Covid is punishment from Mother Nature as he urged everyone to "be a raindrop" and repair the Earth.

    The Duke of Sussex made the claim as he launched a new Netflix-style streaming platform for climate documentaries – adding that he'd also questioned having children as the world will be "on fire" when they grow up.

    "Somebody said to me at the beginning of the pandemic, it's almost as though Mother Nature has sent us to our rooms for bad behaviour to really take a moment and think about what we've done," he said.

    "It's certainly reminded me about how interconnected we all are, not just as people but through nature.

    "We take so much from her and we rarely give a lot back."

    WELSH HEALTH MINISTER CRITICISES WILLIAM AND KATE'S VISIT TO WALES

    The Welsh Health Minister has criticised William and Kate's decision to travel to Wales as Covid cases rise, saying he would prefer it if "no-one was having unnecessary visits".

    Vaughan Gething said he was not "particularly bothered or interested" when asked if he thought the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge should still travel to Wales.

    He said William and Kate's visit, part of a national tour by royal train, should not be used by people as an "excuse" to say they are "confused" about coronavirus regulations.

    Gething told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "I'd rather that no-one was having unnecessary visits, and people always have divisive views about the monarchy, but their visit isn't an excuse for people to say that they are confused about what they are being asked to do."

    WHICH ROYALS WILL BE IN THE QUEEN'S CHRISTMAS BUBBLE?

    Under a relaxation of the coronavirus rules, three households can mix from December 23 to 27, but the bubble must be exclusive over the five-day period, meaning people cannot shift from one group to another.

    The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, however, have a large family of four children and eight grandchildren, who are all nearly grown up, along with eight great-grandchildren.

    It is understood the decision on where and with whom the Queen will spend the Christmas period will not be made for another few weeks.

    The royals will also have to decide whether it is wise to visit the 94-year-old monarch and 99-year-old Philip.

    PRINCE HARRY LAUNCHES LIBEL ACTION AGAINST MAIL ON SUNDAY PUBLISHER

    Harry is suing Associated Newspapers over a story claiming he has fallen out of touch with the Royal Marines.

    It is understood the action relates to a story published in October which claimed Prince Harry had not been in contact with the Marines since stepping back from being a working royal in March.

    Law firm Schillings filed the suit at the end of November.

    ELLEN DEGENERES TO BE NEIGHBOURS WITH SUSSEXES

    The talk show host, 62, is believed to have snapped up a $49 million mansion in California's exclusive Montecito area.

    Ellen bought the sprawling estate from SNL alum Dennis Miller, 67, and his wife, former model, Carolyn Espley-Miller, 55, in late September, according to The Wall Street Journal.

    The deal reportedly makes the property one of the most expensive compounds sold in the Santa Barbara County area.

    Ellen and her wife, Portia de Rossi, could be rubbing shoulders with former royals Meghan and Harry, who bought a $14.7 million Italian-style villa in Montecito this summer.

    HARRY & MEG SLAMMED AS 'BANAL & PATHETIC'

    Biographer Angela Levin has blasted Meghan Markle and Prince Harry as ‘banal and pathetic’ after the pair reportedly planned their own version of the Queen’s ‘honours list’.

    Levin slammed the move while speaking to talkRADIO’s Mike Graham.

    Speaking on the show she said: “I actually think that to try and compete with Her Majesty the Queen on her honours list is like tiny children playing mummies and daddies.”

    She later added: “It’s just banal and pathetic, I’m afraid."

    MEG HAD TO LEARN TO DRINK TEA BEFORE MEETING THE QUEEN

    Before moving to London, the Duchess of Sussex is said to have taken a two-hour lesson including how to hold a cup and saucer and how to use a knife and fork.

    The etiquette class was led by Edmund Fry, who runs the Rose Tree Cottage tea room in Pasadena, California.

    “She is an amazing young lady, so very in control herself and very nice with people,” Edmund told Fabulous Digital.

    "She was very nice, not loud, very gentle, beautiful to look at, beautifully dressed, really well put out."

    THIS IS MEG'S FAVOURITE LONDON HAUNT

    When just a tourist to the UK back in 2014, the Duchess of Sussex revealed that she liked to head to a famous "sweaty, grungy" Soho club filled with "red-lipped tough birds" that was where you came to "dance, not to be seen or to people watch".

    In a post on her now-defunct blog The Tig titled 'Insiders Guide To London', Meghan, 39, recommended a particular night held at the club St Moritz on Wardour Street every Thursday – Gaz's Rockin' Blues – for a fun night out.

    The then-Suits actress wrote: "The oldest ongoing club in London, this place is sweaty, grungy and happening every Thursday night, late night.

    "They play a mix of rock’a’billy, reggae and ska. You come here to dance, not to be seen or to people watch.

    "The crowd is a mix of regulars in their zoot suits, teenagers channelling Jim Morrison, red lipped tough birds in tight corsets and other randoms that pepper the evening with strange encounters and lots of laughs. Don’t wear heels."

    THE £20 TIGHTS MEG SWEARS BY

    The Duchess of Sussex is said to be a huge fan of Heist tights – and although they are £21, they're worth the hefty price tag.

    The nude designs are available in seven different shades and feature a mega comfy waistband that doesn't dig or roll as well as a stronger, eco-friendly yarn.

    They're "gravity defining" with no gusset – and therefore no sagging – as well as being seamless, soft and hand-sewn.

    The brand also sell a range of other tights, but it's thought to be the nude style Meghan wears, thanks to their mega natural look.

    MEGHAN'S FAVOURITE FOOD IS CHIPS & GRAVY

    When it comes to favourite foods, Meghan Markle has proven herself to be a down to earth gal, claiming her favourite dish is a vegan version of poutine – essentially a portion of loaded chips.

    According to Reader's Digest, Meghan tries to eat a vegan diet in the week, and was thrilled when By Chloe, a vegan restaurant in Covent Garden, created a vegan take on the dish in the run up to the Royal Wedding.

    By Chloe is one of the Duchess of Sussex's favourite restaurants, according to Metro, and the vegan poutine was available via Deliveroo.

    By Chloe’s vegan version is probably healthier but no less delicious than the original – theirs is made with chips, seitan 'chorizo', cashew nut cheese and vegan gravy.

    SOMETHING IN COMMON

    Meghan’s son Archie and Princess Eugenie’s baby could have something in common when the tot arrives next year.

    If Eugenie decides to give birth in the same hospital that she was born in back in 1990, then the new royal baby and Archie Harrison will immediately share a similar story.

    Meghan welcomed Archie, one, in London's The Portland Hospital back in May 2019.

    Meanwhile, Eugenie and her sister, Princess Beatrice, were also born in the American-owned hospital.

    In fact, when Sarah Ferguson gave birth to eldest daughter Beatrice in August 1988, it made her the first member of the royal family to give birth in a non-NHS hospital.

    MEGHAN’S SNACKING HABITS REVEALED

    Meghan has spoken a fair bit about her diet in the past, and confirmed that one of her go-to healthy snacks is watermelon.

    In a past interview, she said: “On set and at home, I try to always have a container of watermelon sprinkled with cinnamon because it elevates the flavour just a notch, and makes it feel special."

    The mum-of-one also prefers a healthy drink to gorging on takeaways.

    Speaking of her fast food choices, she told The Chalkboard in a past chat: "A green juice. That’s fast. And it’s food. It’s been many moons since I went through a drive thru."
