Piers Morgan slams Meghan Markle’s ‘self-promoting’ tribute to victims of Texas school shooting following Netflix rumors

Sky News Australia host Piers Morgan says he would find it “unbelievably distasteful” if Meghan Markle had flown all the way to Texas to pay tribute to the victims of the tragic school shooting – only for it to be filmed for Netflix.

Piers Morgan has hit out at Meghan Markle for her “self-promoting” visit to Texas to pay respects to victims of the tragic school shooting that left 19 children and two teachers dead.

The Sky News Australia host says he would find it “unbelievably distasteful” if she had flown all the way from California to pay tribute – only for this to be filmed by Netflix.

His comments come after Page Six last week broke the news that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are working on an “at-home” style docuseries on Netflix.

“Meghan Markle, for reasons I find completely baffling, has turned up at the scene of the mass shooting in America to put flowers down,” Morgan said.

“I don’t know what she’s doing there, other than it seems self promoting.

“And if the Netflix cameras are following her to do something like this, I would find that unbelievably distasteful.”

Conservative commentator Esther Krakue agreed with Morgan, but said she would “like to give her the benefit of the doubt” as the shooting is a “tragedy” that has moved everyone.

“Listen, I would like to give her the benefit of the doubt just because this is a tragedy that has moved everyone, that she’s not doing this as a form of self-promotion,” she told Morgan.

“However, if there are Netflix cameras then clearly she is.”

Royal author Angela Levin was also quick to attack the Duchess after pictures of Markle paying a visit to the memorial site emerged.

“Can you imagine getting a photographer plus a bodyguard to take a picture of you laying roses in memory of the most hideous attack on a school in Texas,” she tweeted.

“Or did the parents or teachers ask her to come? We’ll know when the Netflix filming is released.”

The Duchess of Sussex had flown to Texas from California to pay tribute to the 21 lives lost during the tragic shooting at Robb Elementary School on Tuesday.

Markle, who kept a low-profile, wore a gray t-shirt, blue jeans, sneakers and a dark baseball cap, was filmed leaving a bouquet of white roses in front of a makeshift memorial outside the Uvalde County Courthouse.

A spokesperson for Markle confirmed the visit and said it was important for her, as a mother herself, to extend her condolences and support to the community.

The Duchess also visited a community center hosting a blood drive, where she dropped off two crates full of sandwiches, drinks and desserts for the blood donors, according to Buzzfeed News.
