It’s not been four hours since Meghan and Prince Harry’s sit down interview with Oprah Winfrey aired in the US and Piers Morgan, 55, has already called for this years Oscars ceremony to include the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in their list of nominees. The Good Morning Britain star is the pair’s most fiercest critic, and has come under fire a lot for his treatment of them.

“Is it too late for Oscar nominations? #meghan,” he penned online.
