Piers Morgan admits he went 'too far' in criticism of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

Piers Morgan has admitted he's taken things "too far" when criticising Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in a new interview described as a major U-turn for the controversial broadcaster.

The 55-year-old opened up about his apparent regret in an interview with The Sunday Times.

Piers has regularly raged about Meghan and Harry, firing off insults including "pathetic", "ruthless", "whining", "ego-crazed", "super-woke celebrities" and asking "who the f**k do they think they are?".

But now he's apparently changing his tune.

"Have I taken things a bit too far? Probably," Piers told the Times.

"Do I think that will govern and temper how I talk about them going forward? Absolutely.

"It's probably not wise, if you're a columnist, to make things too personal."

The outspoken Good Morning Britain host went on to suggest it is "boredom" that's made him lash out so viciously at Meghan and Harry.

"It's times of relative peace, calm, quiet and - dare I say - boredom that might occasionally bring out the worst in me," Piers said

"Having squabbles with people who are never going to change their mind in a million years about stuff that no longer seems remotely important."

Meanwhile, the Duke of Sussex featured in a video published over the weekend to mark what would have been the opening of the Invictus Games, which has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
