“I’ve got so much I want to say about the First Amendment as I sort of understand it, but it is bonkers,” Prince Harry said. “I don’t want to start going down the First Amendment route because that’s a huge subject and one which I don’t understand because I’ve only been here a short time. But, you can find a loophole in anything. You can capitalize or exploit what’s not said rather than uphold what is said.”
Morgan went on to point out Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s ongoing fight with the British media. The couple has previously won multiple lawsuits against different British media outlets.
“Though we can safely assume that he just hates anything which affords any protection to journalists to say things he doesn’t like because that has been a familiar theme from the indignant media-loathing Prince for the last few years,” Morgan wrote in his op-ed. “It’s the same mindset that makes Meghan think she can complain to the bosses of TV networks when presenters like me refuse to believe her lies — and have them removed from their jobs if we don’t apologize for our impertinence.”
“All that Americans will take away from Harry’s outburst about the First Amendment is a posh, privileged British royal slamming their Constitution and their inalienable rights to freedom of speech and expression,” Morgan continued. “It takes an extraordinary amount of entitled arrogance to mock the most revered building block of your adopted country’s history.”
