No matter what Prince Harry and Meghan Markle do, Piers Morgan will never be pleased with the couple. Earlier this week, Time magazine announced the pair had made the outlet's Most Influential People list and even graced the cover.
"'In a world where everyone has an opinion about people they don’t know, the duke and duchess have compassion for the people they don’t know. They don’t just opine. They run toward the struggle,'" writes @chefjoseandres #TIME100," the publication tweeted on September 15.
In response, Morgan posted eight laughing emojis.
Others agreed with the TV personality, including royal biographer Angela Levin.
"Sure they did some good things, absolutely," she said. "But if you're saying they are the world's most influential people, you have to take into account the negative. I don’t see how you can crown someone as influential when they are so bitter and angry with her in-laws and his own family, while spouting out criticism which has often been found out to be a lie. It’s absolutely baffling."
She continued, "The lies, the disrespect they have shown to a woman of 95 — one of the most respected women in the world, who recently lost her husband - just because they don't like some of the things she's said and done. It’s absolutely appalling. The world’s most influential people? Surely not on the values of family."
Meghan and Harry were also called out on social media for their over the top cover photo.
One person said, “This photo looks photoshopped. Also, the way they are positioned is very revealing: it’s the Meghan show and Harry is just the supporting actor," while another added, “Not only does it look like Harry was photoshopped in, this is the most airbrushed photo I have ever seen.”
Another person wrote, “This is the weirdest photo. They look powerful but I thought it was fake, the editing is really bad.”
A fourth person said, “Genuine question: are Time 100 trying to embarrass Harry and Meghan?” while another commented, “Their skin looks too good to be true, it’s so smooth. Also, Harry’s eyes are not that bright, definitely some retouching gone on there.”
