Piers Morgan has hit out at Prince Harry for “yapping” about his personal life.

The former Good Morning Britain presenter spoke out after Harry likened his royal life to 1998 film The Truman Show, which sees Jim Carrey play a man under constant scrutiny as the unwitting star of a reality show.

"It's a mixture between The Truman Show and being in a zoo," the Duke of Sussex said on the Armchair Expert podcast.

Sharing a link to a story about Harry’s comments, Morgan tweeted: “For a guy who craves privacy, Prince Harry sure is yapping a lot about his private life...”

The broadcaster also took issue with the Duke’s remarks about parenting during his interview with Dax Shepard on the podcast.

Harry – who has a two-year-old son with wife Meghan Markle and a baby girl on the way – said: "I don't think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anybody.

"But certainly when it comes to parenting, if I've experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father or my parents had suffered, I'm going to make sure I break that cycle."

"It's a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway so we as parents should be doing the most we can to try and say, 'You know what, that happened to me, I'm going to make sure that doesn't happen to you'," he said.

“How many more times is this spoiled brat going to publicly trash the Dad who's bankrolled him his entire life?” Morgan tweeted.
