Meghan Markle‘s former Suits co-star has criticised the Sussexes for staging an interview while the world is in the ‘throes of death’.
Wendell Pierce, who worked with the Duchess for four years in his role as her character’s father, said the broadcast was ‘insignificant’ as COVID-19 death tolls continued to rise.
The 57-year-old told radio station LBC: ‘Today 3,000 people are going to die in America from COVID. A couple of hundred people are going to die, even this hour, in the UK.’
Pierce claimed the bombshell interview with Oprah evoked Shakespeare’s phrase ‘full of sound and fury signifying nothing’.
The actor, who said he had not spoken to the Duchess since 2019, added: ‘It was quite insensitive and offensive that we are all complicit in this sort of palace… gossip in the midst of so much death. I think it is insignificant.’
Asked who he included in this criticism, he said ‘everyone’ including Oprah, US network CBS, ITV, Prince Harry and Meghan, and the Palace.
As of Tuesday evening, more than 525,000 Americans have died from COVID-19, while 125,000 Britons have succumbed to the disease.

The actor -who previously appeared in the Emmy-winning HBO drama The Wire – revealed he and Meghan had not talked much about race as they filmed Suits, despite the topic featuring in their roles.
He said: ‘We didn’t have long discussions about it, besides what was in the script and what was happening in our personal lives.’
