Piers Morgan has shown an attraction to Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, and their affairs that is akin to that of a moth to a flame. Except Morgan is confident enough to argue that in the case of the retired senior royals and himself, he is the flame. Although many have called out the journalist for his vitriolic reporting of the Sussexes, it was different when the virtuoso Sinéad O’Connor did it.

As the Irish maestro parts the world too soon and celebrities pour in to pay tributes, Piers Morgan sprinkling in “uncompromising,” in his, holds more weight than the rest. Especially after they made quite the entirety of Twitter chortle tea out of their nose.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s shift to the United States is often described as a leap across the pond. Their supporters and critics who have always been opined are worlds apart. And while the complexity of it all is often hard to sum up, Sinéad O’Connor as the mental health police and Piers Morgan as the overbearing TV host, in a tea-chortling Twitter spat in 2022, did it perfectly.

In her rejection of his request to appear on his show since her son’s death in 2022, Sinéad O’Connor did not mince, chop, or slice her views on Morgan’s obsession in the guise of reporting about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

The Irish singer highlighted the importance of mental health and its drastic effects, calling Piers Morgan’s humiliation of Meghan Markle’s struggles with mental health blasphemous.
