SELF-PITYING members of the Royal Family should stop whinging and follow Prince Philip’s example, Piers Morgan has said.
Without naming any names, the former GMB presenter urged younger royals to “park the ego, don’t whine, work hard, shun Oprah and remember you owe your fame to the job and public support”.
Citing Prince Philip’s 10-point guide to royal duty, Piers compared the Duke to the Queen Mother, his mother-in-law, as somebody who held passionate views in private but never demanded to speak “their truth” in public.
It comes as Prince Harry returned to Frogmore Cottage while in the UK for Prince Philip’s funeral – but without his wife Meghan Markle.
The Duke of Sussex is due to attend his grandfather’s funeral on Saturday, while his pregnant wife Meghan stays in California on doctors orders.
It will be the first time Prince Harry comes face to face with other members of his family following the bombshell tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired last month.
But royal biographer Tom Bower wrote in the Sun that Harry must not appear unapologetic for recent events when he arrives back in the UK.
“Now, Harry faces a moment of reckoning,” Bower wrote.
“The negotiations for his return to Britain for the funeral are certain to be fraught.
“The tension will not be helped by the small number of mourners allowed at the funeral — just 30 because of Covid restrictions.
“Much will depend on whether Charles and William are willing to seek reconciliation.
