Ann Widdecombe has labelled Prince Harry as a “professional whinger” in brutal new swipe at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Speaking to the Express, she said that Harry was “very damaging” to the royal family and said that his actions must be “hurtful” to the Queen.
Ann said: “And I think they should keep quiet, I mean they are privileged beyond belief and they moan that they were cut off financially.
"They are privileged, they are professional victims, they are professional whingers and having said that they wanted privacy they've done nothing except publicise every last detail of life.”
She concluded that in the end many people will simply "laugh" at the couple.
When asked about her thoughts on the Ofcom decision to clear Piers Morgan on his rant on disbelieving Meghan Markle, Ann said she was “positively cheering”.
"I think it is high time Meghan was cut down to size, I think she's had the most dreadful influence on Harry,” she added.

"If ever I made a prediction that was true it was the one that I made on Big Brother and was reviled for the time when I said she could be trouble. Well, I don't think anybody's wondering why I said that.”
Ofcom declared Piers had not breached the broadcasting code, stating: “Under our rules, broadcasters can include controversial opinions as part of legitimate debate in the public interest, and the strong challenge to Mr Morgan from other contributors provided important context for viewers.

“The Code allows for individuals to express strongly held and robustly argued views, including those that are potentially harmful or highly offensive, and for broadcasters to include these in their programming.
“The restriction of such views would, in our view, be an unwarranted and chilling restriction on freedom of expression both of the broadcaster and the audience.’
Piers Morgan hailed the decision as a “landmark ruling” saying: “This is Ofcom saying I and any other broadcaster is entitled to say to a public figure, 'I don't believe you’.
"Because if they had gone the other way and said I had to believe Meghan Markle even when she was lying, where does that leave us with Government ministers who I was challenging during the pandemic?”
