The former Good Morning Britain host, 56, suggested the TV host was not concerned about the damage the interviews were doing to the mental health of those close to the Duke of Sussex.
It comes after Prince Harry accused the Royal Family of “total neglect” and said he “would not be bullied” by recalling traumatic memories of his childhood, including the death of his mother, the Princess Diana.
In the Duke’s mental health documentary series The Me You Can’t See, with Oprah, he opened up about his attempts to get help from his family for the attacks he and Meghan were receiving online.
He said, “Every request, demand, warning, whatever it is, to stop has encountered total silence or total neglect. “
Tackling Oprah, Piers furiously tweeted tonight: “How ‘problematic’ is Oprah’s hugely lucrative activation of Prince Harry’s constant unbalanced assaults on the Royal Family – and does she care? how much damage this could cause to the sanity of Harry’s parents, or don’t they count? ”
Earlier today, Oprah defended the Sussexes for speaking out against the Royal Family, despite moving to the United States to lead a more private life.
Appearing on the Today show, Oprah suggested that Harry and Meghan “deserve” to “not be intruded and invaded”.
She said, “You know, I ask for privacy, and I talk all the time. So I think being able to have a life where you’re not overrun by photographers, or people flying over your head or invading your life is what every person wants and deserves – not to be invaded and invaded.
“That’s what people lack. Privacy does not mean silence. “
