Piers Morgan has hit out at Meghan Markle by congratulating her for being voted ‘Top Social Climber’ by Tatler magazine.

The Good Morning Britain presenter, who has infamously made his dislike towards the duchess publicly known, irritably said that he feels that Meghan has ‘worked hard’ for the title of ‘Top Social Climber’.

‘She’s worked hard for that,’ he said. ‘I think we should just take it at face value.

‘She has worked very hard for that honour and I congratulate her,’ he continued. ‘Great social climbing. The climbing littered with the carcasses of those who once knew you, littered around.’

‘I think you work very hard for that award,’ he told the Britain’s Got Talent judge. ‘There have been two honours in the last week that I think have been thoroughly deserved with the amount of work put in to getting them.

‘You with Rear of the Year because I don’t think a minute goes by without seeing your delightful posterior on the social media airwaves,’ he continued. ‘And the other one is Meghan Markle who has today been voted social climber of the year by Tatler magazine.

‘And no one could have put more work in to winning that award than Ms Markle, so I think both of you deserve our congratulations.’

She replied: ‘We like Meghan on this show, so if you’re bored of Piers switch over to Heart Breakfast.’
