Piers previously hit out at these comments, taking to Twitter where he wrote: “Prince Harry, from his Hollywood mansion, accusing the media of exaggerating the scale of this crisis in Britain is contemptible.”
Again, the host reiterated the media was reflecting the reality of the virus and the tragic consequences of COVID-19 on those fighting on the front line.
The Duke did offer his gratitude to those risking their lives, adding during his interview: “I want to say a huge thank you, as we all do, to all of the NHS workers and everybody that’s volunteering.
“Because up and down the UK, whether it’s from Dorset up to Staffordshire, there are literally hundreds of thousands of people volunteering.”
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
