Piers Morgan has publicly celebrated his wife's birthday a day late – after getting caught up once again in debates over Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

Sharing photos of his wife Celia Walden on a glamour shoot on Twitter, proud husband Morgan wrote: "All the trolls raging that I only criticise Meghan Markle because I ‘fancied’ her & then got upset when she ghosted me… have reminded me that I forgot to publicly wish my wife Celia a happy birthday yesterday. (And yes, she knows she lucked out….)"

The photos show Walden, herself a celebrated journalist, posing in 1996 for a black-and-white glam shoot where she straddles a bed, with her buttoned shirt undone, and then shirtless.

The first three episodes of Harry and Meghan, dropped yesterday, sparking massive commentary across the world as they spoke about life inside the monarchy and the press invasion that entails.

Morgan has been a long-time critic of the couple, even quitting Good Morning Britain in March 2021 after refusing to apologise for saying he didn’t believe the Duchess of Sussex when she said in an interview Oprah Winfrey she "felt suicidal and had mental health issues" after becoming attached to the monarchy.

Naturally, he also laid into the new series, declaring it a "whine-a-thon" that's "boring".
