Piers Morgan has had a thinly-veiled dig at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle by criticising their statement on Russia.

The outspoken TV star has never been shy when it comes to sharing his thoughts on the royals, and took aim again after they commented on Russia invading the Ukraine.

Harry and Meghan said in a statement on their Archewell website that they “stand with the people of Ukraine against this breach of international and humanitarian law and encourage the global community and its leaders to do the same”.

Morgan, 56, shared their comment on Twitter and teased: “This will really rattle Putin."

The presenter quit Good Morning Britain last year after refusing to apologise for saying he didn’t believe some of the things the Duchess of Sussex said in her sensational interview with US chat show host Oprah Winfrey.

His remarks sparked more than 57,000 complaints — including one from the royal couple — but he was later cleared by broadcasting watchdog Ofcom.

Morgan has also taken several swipes at the royals on Twitter and in his newspaper columns.

He is now set to launch his new TalkTV show and has said he would like Markle to be the first guest because they have "a bit of unfinished business".

Talking to Sky News Australia, he said: "If Meghan Markle’s watching – I’m sure she is – if you want to be my first guest, we have a bit of unfinished business.”

“I’m available,” he added.
