Piers Morgan jokes 'awks' after watching Prince Harry give surprise speech at GQ awards following Ofcom victory

PIERS Morgan today took a swipe at Prince Harry after watching him give a surprise speech at the GQ awards.

The TV presenter, 56, was in the audience for Harry's rant just hours after he won his Ofcom complaint against him and Meghan Markle.

He shared a story on his Twitter this morning about him watching the royal's speech, saying: "#awks".

Piers sensationally quit Good Morning Britain in March following a heated debate about Meghan's mental health.

It comes as…

  • Piers Morgan hails ‘watershed moment’ for free speech over Meghan Markle GMB row & insists: ‘I still don’t believe her’
  • Piers Morgan WON’T appear on Good Morning Britain today but sends his wife Celia Walden instead – to promote her book
  • The presenter brands Meghan a ‘whiny fork-tongued actress’ and ‘demonstrable liar’ after Ofcom win
  • Piers asks ‘Do I get my job back?’ over ‘Princess Pinocchio’ Meghan Markle’s ‘chilling’ attack on free speech
  • Meghan will be ‘absolutely livid’ as Piers wins Ofcom ruling over ‘liar’ blast and ‘will speak to lawyers’
  • Piers' ex-GMB colleague Susanna Reid breaks her silence on his Ofcom win over Meghan

He accused the Duchess of Sussex, 39, lying to Oprah Winfrey when she said she had previously felt suicidal.

Both Harry and Meghan personally lodged a complaint against Piers to ITV and Ofcom about his outburst.

But yesterday the media watchdog declared Piers was within his rights to share his thoughts on TV.

The regulator said he was "entitled" to say he didn't believe the Sussex's claims, and restricting his strong views would be an "unwarranted and chilling restriction on freedom of expression".

Harry last night made a surprise appearance at the award show in London via videolink from the US.

He presented a prize to Professor Dame Sarah Gilbert, Professor Catherine Green and the team behind the Oxford/AstraZeneca jab.

And the royal blasted anti-vaxxers who “peddle lies and fear”, warning: "Until every community can access the vaccine and until every community is connected to trustworthy information about the vaccine, then we are all at risk."

Harry also said people were being "overwhelmed by masses of misinformation," leading to hesitancy over the jab.

He added: “As people sit in the room with you tonight, more than a third of the global population has received at least one dose of the vaccine. That's more than five billion shots given around the world so far.

"It sounds like a major accomplishment and in many ways it is, but there is a huge disparity between who can and cannot access the vaccine”
