Speaking via video-link to young leaders from the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, the Duke and Duchess pointed to the Commonwealth’s past “of colonialism and the subjugation of peoples”.
ITV Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan was furious at the comments, claiming that the couple were deliberately “picking a fight” with the Queen.
He said: “There’s a serious point to this which is that these two quit the Royal Family because they wanted to go and do their own thing in Hollywood.
“That’s fine. It’s their choice, it’s their life.
“But if they’re going to start attacking the Commonwealth, and the Queen is the head of the Commonwealth, then they’re picking a proper political fight.
“Therefore they put themselves back in the news agenda.”
