Piers Morgan Criticizes Royal Family Over Kate Middleton Photo Leak

In a recent twist to the ongoing saga surrounding Princess Kate’s recovery period, British journalist and royal commentator Piers Morgan has voiced his discontent with the royal family. This comes after an American media outlet, TMZ, captured and released a photo of Princess Kate during her mysterious recovery period.

Taking to the digital platform X, formerly known as Twitter, Morgan expressed his frustration, stating, “If the Princess of Wales is now well enough to be out and about in a car – which is great news – she should kill the paparazzi market by releasing a picture.” He went on to highlight the irony, pointing out, “Bit absurd that the rest of the world is seeing the TMZ photo, but Brits whose taxes pay for the Royals can’t.”

The exclusive photo shared by TMZ on March 2nd depicted Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, seated in a car driven by her mother, Carole Middleton, at Windsor Castle. The release of this image comes amidst growing speculation regarding Kate Middleton’s medical condition.

It’s worth noting that Kate Middleton underwent ‘planned abdominal surgery’ in January 2024 and is currently recuperating at her family home in Windsor. However, the circumstances surrounding her health and recovery have been shrouded in secrecy, fueling speculation and curiosity among the public.

Morgan’s critique sheds light on the disparity in information accessibility between the British public and the rest of the world. Despite the British taxpayers funding the royal family, they find themselves excluded from crucial updates regarding the Duchess’s health and wellbeing.
