Piers Morgan beat back the critics of Prince Charles after the Prince of Wales visited his “seriously ill” father Prince Philip in hospital yesterday (February 20).
Philip has been in the hospital since Tuesday (February 16) after the hospital announced that visitors would only be allowed in “exceptional circumstances”.
Prince Charles visited yesterday (February 19) – and that divided the British.
Some voiced “concerns” about the elderly Duke’s health, while others said it was not fair that he should be allowed into hospital when so many other inpatients were not.
And now Good Morning’s British host Piers Morgan has taken the floor.
What did Piers Morgan say about Prince Charles’ hospital visit?
Piers used social media to express his frustration with those who criticized the heir to the throne.

In an explosive chatter, he said, “What an incredibly sad picture. A tearful son after seeing his seriously ill 99-year-old father in the hospital.
“If your first instinct is to spit abuse or anger at Prince Charles visiting Prince Philip today, shut those down [bleep] above.”
How did Piers supporters react?
It is safe to say that Piers supporters were divided on this matter.
Many British grieving showed that they could no longer see loved ones after they were hospitalized.
For those who say double standards, hospitals allow visitors when it comes to end-of-life care. It is likely that this is the case with Prince Philip, so I think it is right that Prince Charles can visit him.
One said, “My mother died on January 18th. Saw her walking in the ambulance, never saw her alive again!
“Why didn’t thousands of others or I see our loved ones when they were seriously ill?”

Another added: “My mother had to receive news that she had terminal cancer and only had weeks to live on her own.
“She had to do a biopsy, scans, tests, and interview with professionals. She was told that she would die on her own. I love the royals but that makes me mad! “
A third commented, “I’m sorry, but what’s the difference between this picture and all the other sons, daughters, etc. who couldn’t see their loved ones when they were seriously ill ?!”
“I see a broken man worried about his father.”
However, many others expressed concern about the elderly Duke of Edinburgh.
“Whether it is allowed or not, when my family / friends are on their deathbed, I visit them,” said one.
Another added: “For those who say double standards, hospitals allow visitors when it comes to end-of-life care.
“It is likely that this is the case with Prince Philip, so I think it is right that Prince Charles can visit him. When that time comes for people, the title and story go. It’s just a father and his son. “
A third said: “Some hospitals allow visits to COVID wards when patients are seriously ill, regardless of who they are.
“I see a broken man worried about his father, not a prince. If people can’t show compassion, what have we become? “
