The ex-GMB presenter, 56, has claimed that Harry is on “very dangerous territory” by bashing the US Constitution while living in America.
Harry has faced a huge fallout after his comments, with some furious Americans telling the royal to “get the hell out”
Blasting Harry, 36, Piers said: “Like so much of the absurd Meghan-inspired psychobabble that spews out of his mouth, none of this makes any sense, and he clearly doesn't understand what he's saying either.
“Though we can safely assume that he just hates anything which affords any protection to journalists to say things he doesn't like, because that has been a familiar theme from the indignant media-loathing Prince for the last few years.
“It's the same mindset that makes Meghan think she can complain to the bosses of TV networks when presenters like me refuse to believe her lies - and have them removed from their jobs if we don't apologise for our impertinence.
“But all that Americans will take away from Harry's outburst about the First Amendment is a posh, privileged British royal slamming their Constitution and their unalienable rights to freedom of speech and expression.
“It takes an extraordinary amount of entitled arrogance to mock the most revered building block of your adopted country's history.”
Talking about life in LA, his family and future plans on Dax Shepard's Armchair Expert, 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. You can capitalise or exploit what's not said rather than uphold what is said."
Dubbing him as the “Prince of Compassion” the presenter lashed out at the Duke calling him a “spineless whiny cry baby.”
Writing on MailOnline Piers added: “It’s hard to imagine a less compassionate pair of ruthless, heartless, selfish, shameless little grifters than the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
“Harry's gone from being a courageous war hero to a spineless whiny cry baby who blames his family for all his supposed woes and who like his wife, shamelessly and cynically weaponises issues like mental health and racism to silence critics.
“Neither he nor Meghan shows an ounce of the compassion they love to preach about to those closest to them.
“Nor do they seem to appreciate just how chronically unself-aware they sound constantly bleating about their poor oppressed lives from the comfort of their $11 million Californian mansion, while much of the world reels from a deadly pandemic.
“Harry has lost his country, his dignity and now seems to be losing his mind too as he condemns everything from his grieving grandmother to free speech.
“It's time His Royal Hypocrite stopped abusing his family, stopped moaning about everything all the bloody time, stopped exploiting his royal titles for huge financial gain, stopped trashing America's constitution - and grew a pair.”
In the same podcast chat, Harry blasted dad Charles’s parenting and said he moved to California to “break the cycle” of pain for wife Meghan and their kids.
In a sweary podcast chat, he described royal life as a mixture of The Truman Show film and being in a zoo.
The royal also revealed he wanted to quit royal duty when he was in his twenties, saying: “I didn’t want this job.”
The Duke opened up about his mental health struggles in a brutally frank, and profanity-laden, chat with US podcast host Dax Shepard.
Harry claimed his father, 72, “suffered” due to his upbringing by the Queen and Philip, then “treated me the way he was treated”.
Piers branded Harry’s outburst as “shameful” and berated him for “publicly hammering his father in public”
He added: “But for him to implicitly criticise the Queen and Prince Philip for the 'genetic pain and suffering' they supposedly inflicted on Charles which then got inflicted on him is beneath contempt.
“Does it get any less compassionate, or more disgusting than condemning your grandparents just weeks after one of them died?
"Or, any more reprehensible than to compound the mourning Queen's misery by making her feel even worse?
“How terribly hurt she must have felt when she heard what her grandson had said about her.
“It takes a rare degree of self-obsessed uncaring narcissism to do that to a grieving woman of 95, yet the most shocking about Harry's outburst is that it wasn't really shocking at all.
“The British public has grown increasingly angry at Harry's behaviour, as can be seen in recent polls showing support for him and his grasping wife plummeting to record negative depths.
“And now the American public is turning on him too, incensed that he is belittling their right to free speech whilst reserving the right to spew off about anything he likes.
“But I doubt he either comprehends the damage he is doing, or cares.”
Harry hailed mum Diana’s “immense impact” but said he didn’t cope with her death until Meghan suggested therapy.
Following Harry's "disgraceful" swipe at Charles’ and Philip’s parenting skills, royal aides reportedly want the Prince and Meghan to give up their titles.
