Piers Morgan has taken a fresh swipe at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry as he spoke out on what he believed Prince Philip would have thought about their Oprah Winfrey interview.

The former Good Morning Britain presenter, who recently ventured out to the salon to get a haircut as lockdown was eased, took to his column in MailOnline to comment on the events of the last few months.

The 56 year old explained that he believes the late Prince Philip, who sadly died at the age of 99 on Friday 9 April, had a 10-point guide to surviving and thriving as a member of the Royal Family.

Included in this guide was Royal biographer Gyles Brandreth's claims that the Duke of Edinburgh believed a Royal should never think it's "all about them".

Piers listed that they shouldn't "whine", they should "work hard, read, avoid scandal," and "stay off Oprah".

"'Give TV interviews, by all means,' Philip said. 'But don't talk about yourself.'," Piers recounted.

He then referenced Royal expert Gyles Brandreth's claims that Prince Philip thought Meghan, 39, and her 36 year old husband Prince Harry's bombshell interview with the talk show host was "madness" and "no good would come of it".

Piers said that the Queen's husband "apparently thought the same about all other big royal TV confessions", which included "Diana and Charles opining on their broken marriage in the 1990s".

Elsewhere in his column, Piers wrote: "Many of the younger royals that followed them have behaved very differently – emoting on television, playing the victim, wallowing in self-pity, complaining about their regally gilded lives, and getting themselves into all manner of lurid scrapes that have damaged the family's reputation."

The TV presenter ended his list by claiming Prince Philip believed the best thing to do was to "just get on with it".

It comes after Prince Harry recently paid an emotional tribute to his late grandfather as he released a statement through his non-profit foundation Archewell.

"My grandfather was a man of service, honour and great humour. He was authentically himself, with a seriously sharp wit, and could hold the attention of any room due to his charm – and also because you never knew what he might say next," he wrote.

"He will be remembered as the longest reigning consort to the Monarch, a decorated serviceman, a Prince and a Duke. But to me, like many of you who have lost a loved one or a grandparent over the pain of this past year, he was my grandpa: master of the barbecue, legend of banter, and cheeky right 'til the end."

Harry, who is expected to walk with his brother Prince William behind their grandfather's coffin, continued: "He has been a rock for Her Majesty The Queen with unparalleled devotion, by her side for 73 years of marriage, and while I could go on, I know that right now he would say to all of us, beer in hand, 'Oh do get on with it!'

"So, on that note, Grandpa, thank you for your service, your dedication to Granny, and for always being yourself. You will be sorely missed, but always remembered – by the nation and the world. Meghan, Archie, and I (as well as your future great-granddaughter) will always hold a special place for you in our hearts."

"'Per Mare, Per Terram,'" Harry added, which is Latin for "By Sea, By Land".
