Piers Morgan is upset Meghan Markle ‘ghosted’ him and now calls her a ‘ruthless social climber’

Cape Town - British talk-show host Piers Morgan has taken swipes at Meghan Markle (37) again, accusing her of acting her way to the top and breaking off contact with him after she started dating Prince Harry (34), Daily Mail reports.

The 53-year-old, who never shies away from controversy, let rip at Meghan on Tuesday’s Good Morning Britain, claiming the former actress is interested only in fame and fortune, USA Today reports.

"I’ve had my own experience with her, which wasn’t great to be honest. I knew her for about a year-and-a-half," Piers said.

"I got on really well with her and then bang, she met someone more important and immediately ghosted me," he added.

He asserted that Meghan had chased after Harry, claiming that he put her in a cab with the prince to begin with.

"Meghan Markle is a ruthless social climbing actress who’s landed the role of her life and is determined to milk it for all she can – and that’s why the palace is beginning to turn on her."

Piers also noted that the duchess should expect to be in the public eye, considering her position in the monarchy.

"You can’t set your sights on a prince to this country who’s in line to the throne and expect to have a normal private life afterwards," he said.

"It’s part of the deal. To live in palaces at our expense you get to be in the papers. Good, bad and ugly."
