Piers Morgan: it's 'odd' for Meghan Markle to leave Archie in Canada

Piers Morgan today picked apart Harry and Meghan's decision to leave baby Archie in Canada while they jet to the UK for their final round of royal engagements.  

Since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex relocated to Canada, the pair have travelled to various events overseas, but never with their nine-month-old son who was born in Britain.

The couple will fly from Vancouver Island back to the UK on March 5 for Family duties before peeling away from the front line indefinitely.    

But the Good Morning Britain presenter questioned why the recent parents would leave their infant for a period of time and not take him with them.  

Speaking on the show as panelists discussed whether or not UK tax payers should foot the bill for the family's security, he said: 'It's a bit odd, I've had four kids and the rule was always that both parents wouldn't be out of the country at the same time as the kids when they were that young, I'm very surprised.

'We don't know for sure if Archie is coming on this trip, but it struck me as slightly odd I have to say, that both parents would be in London and this little eight/nine-month-old baby is left back in Canada'.  

Social media users hit back at Piers and said he needs to 'talk about something else' and claimed he needs to 'leave Meghan and Harry alone'.

One user said: 'I need to let you all know that #BettyFromBuckingham aka the queen left her children, for 6 months and went on a royal tour. So please leave #HarryandMeghan alone when it comes to THEIR SON #Archie.'

Many agreed and another user said that Kate and William had left baby George with a nanny for their second honeymoon, accusing Piers of bullying Meghan.
