Piers Morgan calls Meghan Markle's sister a 'vulture'

Meghan Markle's dad will miss his daughter's wedding to Prince Harry, as he is due to undergo heart surgery this week.

UK TV personality Piers Morgan didn't hold back when he interviewed Meghan Markle's half-sister Samantha Grant on Good Morning Britain today, accusing her of playing the victim and saying she has treated her sister "in a shabby way".

He and co-host Susanna Reid, 47, had a live link to Samantha, 53, to talk about the sisters' relationship and why she's not invited to the wedding.

When Piers began to interview Sam, he questioned why she'd said so many nasty things about her own sister.

"I spoke to him early in the morning yesterday and he was quite depressed over an unbelievable series of events involving the media", she said. But clearly the priority should be whether or not it's safe for him to do that.

He continued: "You've spent the last two years criticizing her, you called her a narcissist, selfish, that Hollywood changed her and that Prince Harry shouldn't marry her, yet you have the gall to blame media vultures". "We all have these kinds of relatives tucked away somewhere in our families but those dramas are not dished up for public consumption".

His guest explained that her family, particularly her father Thomas, has been "suffering" at the hands of the media.

CNN has reached out to Thomas Markle for comment by phone and over email but has not yet received a response.

It is looking increasingly likely Thomas will not be attending Saturday's nuptials after admitting to setting up paparazzi shots in the press.

In an unusual move, Kensington Palace issued a statement on Monday night, describing the situation as a "deeply personal moment for Ms Markle in the days before the wedding". Harry has yet to meet his fiance's father.

But Morgan did not back down and said it was the Markle family who was disappointing Meghan.

It has also been revealed that the couple will spend their final night before the wedding at separate luxury hotels near Windsor.

Then he asked 'how much money have you made from trashing Meghan Markle?'
