Piers Morgan in U-turn as he calls Harry and Williams vigil reunion heart-rending

Piers Morgan is known to be outspoken on his views about Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, however, he's done something of a U-turn after describing Harry and his brother Prince William's vigil reunion 'heart-rending'.

The two brothers joined with their six cousins on Saturday evening to stand beside the coffin of their late grandmother the Queen in a silent vigil at Westminster Hall.

Prince Harry, 38, was given "special permission" by the Palace to wear his military uniform during the vigil, after he was stripped of his military titles when he left the royal family in 2020.

He and a uniform-wearing Prince William, 40, joined their cousins Peter Phillips, Zara Tindall, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Lady Louise Windsor, and James, Viscount Severn in the vigil.

Piers, 57, who hosts Talk TV and used to front GMB, shared a picture of the vigil to Twitter as he wrote: "Of all the many incredibly moving images in the past week, this one of the Queen’s grandchildren standing guard by her coffin, flanked by the silent, respectful British public, is the most heart-rending."

Piers' comments about the grandchildren of the Queen come after he claimed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's "truce" with William and Kate was "all for show".

In a recent column, Pier's wrote: "Don’t be misled by the scenes of supposed hatchet-burying between William and his brother over the weekend,"

"That was a show of forced unity to wrestle media attention away from their rift to their grandmother in the run-up to her state funeral next Monday.

"All you need to know about how deep their split goes is that when Harry went to Balmoral as the Queen died, and stayed until the following morning, he reportedly had no contact with William the entire time despite them being in the same building."

He went on to say he was "not fooled" by the apparent "truce" between the two brothers after the Queen's death, including a walkabout at Windsor with their wives, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.

Piers said: "I applaud their temporary truce as a mark of respect for their grandmother, which is something she would have desperately wanted, but I’m not fooled by it.

"The depth of ill feeling between them, and their wives, runs very deep," he suggested.

Never one to praise Harry and Meghan, Piers called the couple "whiny money-grabbers", writing: "Queen Elizabeth II espoused values of honesty, integrity, decency, stoicism, resilience, duty, service, humility and selfless devotion to her country.

"How does any of that compare to the selfish, whiny, money-grabbing and damaging way Harry and Meghan have conducted themselves since then?"
