Good Morning Britain viewers weren't happy with Piers Morgan on today's show, as he voiced his views on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle 's lifestyle.
Piers and co-presenter Susanna Reid were joined by royal protection officer Ken Wharfe and journalist Ateh Jewel on the show, as the conversation turned to the couple's recent travel plans.
Meghan and Harry have been travelling recently, though their young son Archie reportedly stayed in Canada while they jetted abroad.
Questioning their decision to leave the baby on Vancouver Island, Piers said: "Susanna and Charlotte, on this issue of if Archie doesn't come on this trip – and we don't know for sure, maybe he will come – if he doesn't come… isn't it a bit odd?
"I mean, I've had four kids and the rule was always both parents wouldn't be out of the country at the same time when my kids were that young. I'm very surprised."

Taking to Twitter, viewers complained about Piers' reaction to their lifestyle, suggesting his point of view was unfair to new mum Meghan.
One said: "I think it's smart that Meghan and Harry keep their baby safe with all the coronavirus knocking about! Wouldn't any responsible parent do that?!"
A second added: "Piers now using baby Archie to bang Meghan around the head with. Can you go any lower Piers?"

And a third chimed: "Seriously…Another Harry & Meghan segment again?! Just leave them ALONE. Plenty other news so just move on."
Susanna agreed with Piers, saying: "For my 40th we were supposed to go away without the children and I literally, physically couldn't get on the plane with my children's dad, who I was together with at the time, because I couldn't bear the thought that something might happen to us and we'd left the children at home."
Piers chimed: "I've always had a rule with all my kids that you can't be in a different country, both parents, away from a young child – I don't think. I'm surprised!"
Ateh countered the two and defended Meghan's decision to travel solo, pointing out that it could be safer for Archie to stay at home.
She said: "She's a young mother, all bets are off. Maybe she thinks it's safer to be on an isolated island in Vancouver than in London. So maybe she's thinking of it in a very primal [way]."
