Piers Morgan’s wife Celia Walden has said Prince Harry needs to “pipe down” and “put a sock in it” after listening to his latest bombshell interview.
Journalist Celia wrote in her latest column that the 36-year-old Royal was obviously “confused” after he branded the First Amendment – which refers to the freedom of speech – as “bonkers"’ during a podcast interview with actor Dax Shepard.
In the same interview, Harry also compared his life to a cross between being in a zoo and being in the Truman Show.
He then went on to criticise his father and the rest of the monarchy for their parenting skills.
But the comment that received the swiftest backlash was his disapproval of the First Amendment, the right for a person to express themselves without punishment.
It is a part of the Constitution that Americans are fiercely and vehemently proud of.
In her column for the Daily Telegraph, Celia, 45, said: "Harry, stop talking. Pipe down. Quit chattering. Put a sock in it. Shush.
“After all, it was freedom of speech Harry was criticising when he made his own 'boob' on actor Dax Shepard's podcast last Thursday.
"Oh, and one of America's founding principles. But let's not get bogged down by any small print dating back to 1791."
Celia, who shares a nine-year-old child with Piers, also joked that slamming the First Amendment is akin to an American slating the Royal Family.
She added: “While Prince Harry's researching his adoptive country's founding principles, he might want to re-familiarise himself with it: the concept of national pride."
Among other things expressed during the interview, which was recorded in the States where he now lives, Harry said: "I've got so much I want to say about the First Amendment as I sort of understand it, but it is bonkers.
"I don't want to start going down the First Amendment route because that's a huge subject and one which I don't understand because I've only been here a short time.
"But, you can find a loophole in anything."
Among those to swipe back at him were Fox News presenter Sean Hannity who branded Harry a “royal pain in the a**”.
He added: "Harry, we really don't need you coming from England to give us lectures on the First Amendment.”
