Piers Morgan Criticizes Royal Family Over American Outlet’s Photo of Convalescing Princess Kate

Piers Morgan, a well-known royal commentator, recently expressed his discontent with the royal family following the release of a photograph by an American media outlet showcasing Princess Kate during her period of convalescence.

Morgan took to the social media platform X, previously known as Twitter, to share his thoughts. He suggested that if the Princess of Wales is in good enough health to be seen out and about in a car, which is indeed wonderful news, then it might be wise for her to release a photograph herself. This move, he implied, could potentially diminish the market for paparazzi photos.

This commentary came in the wake of TMZ publishing an exclusive photo of Catherine on March 2, amidst growing speculation and rumors concerning her health. The photograph in question depicted the future Queen seated in the passenger side of a vehicle, with her mother, Carole Middleton, behind the wheel.

The location was identified as Windsor Castle, adding a layer of royal significance to the captured moment. It’s important to highlight that Kate Middleton had undergone a ‘planned abdominal surgery’ in January 2024. The surgery was a significant event, given her prominent position within the British royal family and her role as a mother of three. Following the procedure, the Princess of Wales has been in recovery at her family residence in Windsor.

Piers added: “Bit absurd that the rest of the world is seeing the TMZ photo, but Brits whose taxes pay for the Royals can’t.” Kate has been away from public life since Christmas after she underwent planned abdominal surgery in January, and was last seen on Christmas Day with her three children at the annual Sandringham church service.

The release of the photograph and Morgan’s subsequent remarks underscore the constant public and media scrutiny faced by members of the royal family. Their health, personal lives, and even their recovery periods from medical procedures become subjects of public interest and discussion. Morgan’s suggestion to release an official photograph could be seen as a strategy to manage this intense scrutiny, offering a controlled glimpse into the Princess’s condition and thereby potentially reducing the demand for unauthorized, invasive photographs by the paparazzi.

This incident also sheds light on the broader conversation about privacy, media ethics, and the relationship between public figures and the press. The delicate balance between public interest and personal privacy becomes especially pronounced in the case of royal figures, who occupy unique positions within both the public sphere and their private lives. As the royal family navigates these challenges, incidents like these serve as poignant reminders of the complexities inherent in living a life under constant public observation.
