Piers Morgan Hits Out At 'Good Friend' Meghan Markle On Twitter

Despite defending bride-to-be Meghan Markle on numerous occasions during the run up to her wedding with Prince Harry, Piers Morgan has now questioned why the former Suits actress hasn't rushed to be with her father.

Thomas Markle Snr is said to have suffered a heart attack, leaving him needing emergency surgery and unable to fly to Britain to walk his daughter down the aisle this Saturday.

And now, the outspoken Good Morning Britain host has hit out at his 'good friend' Meghan on Twitter.

"Pretty ironic that after repeatedly urging us all to take care of people with mental health issues, Harry & Meghan have left Thomas Markle on his own to undergo heart surgery brought on by anxiety/stress over their wedding," he tweeted.

Piers then added: "I still like Meghan, notwithstanding her disconcerting tendency to 'ghost' people when they've served their purpose.

"But if my father was having heart surgery 8000 miles away, I probably wouldn't stay in London working out what songs I want Elton to play at my party."

Thomas, 73, has pulled out of the nuptials, telling TMZ that he didn't want to 'embarrass' his daughter on her big day, following reports that he had 'staged' paparazzi pictures and had a heart attack.

Following a week of will-he-won't-he attend the royal wedding, Meghan issued an official statement via Kensington Palace, announcing that Thomas would not be present as she weds Prince Harry.

The statement read: "Sadly my father will not be attending our wedding. I have always cared for my father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health."

She added: "I would like to thank everyone who has offered generous messages of support. Please know much Harry and I look forward to spending our special day with you on Saturday."

Piers' comments come after reports that Meghan's half sister, Samantha Markle, was 'rushed to hospital' after being involved in a car crash.

Her boyfriend, Mark, told TMZ that he was driving and apparently trying to avoid a photographer who had come out in front of them.
