Piers Morgan has laid into Meghan Markle and Prince Harry over their new Netflix documentary, saying he "retched" when he saw the trailer.

The duo are giving people a peek behind the scenes at their lives in the six-part series and the teaser, which was unveiled this week, showed a series of candid photos as well as Meghan looking tense and tearful.

"When the stakes were this high, doesn't it make more sense to hear our story from us?" she asks.

Harry says: "No one sees what's happening behind closed doors."

However, Morgan, who has made his feelings about the pair clear on many occasions, was unimpressed.

"It was so ghastly, so repugnant, so dripping in sanctimony and fake hammy 'woe-is-us' acting, that I felt my intestines physically recoil in abject disgust," he said in The Sun.

The TV star, 57, criticised the couple for “trashing” their family and said they had been “bleating constantly about privacy” but then had gone and made a reality show.

“It’s obvious what this series will be attempting to do: paint this pair of shameful millionaire grifters as poor little victims horribly abused by the beastly Royals and the vile media,” he said.

He also took issue with Markle talking about people hearing the couple's story from them, saying that they had shared their story many times.

Morgan said that in his opinion King Charles should “strip them of all remaining titles”.

The presenter has never been shy when it comes to sharing his thoughts on the royals.
