Piers Morgan admitted he was in “agony” as he attempted to escape Prince Harry’s speech at the GQ Awards 2021 which was held on Wednesday night. The ex-Good Morning Britain presenter revealed he did not want to stick around for the Duke of Sussex’s candid speech.
The 56-year-old attended the award ceremony alongside his wife Celia Walden, 45, before the pair decided to make an early exit.
The Duke of Sussex made a surprise appearance at the GQ Awards just hours after complaints about Piers’ controversial comments about Meghan Markle were rejected by Ofcom.
The former GMB host said in his latest column that he felt “exhilarated” after claiming victory for free speech following Ofcom’s ruling.
The broadcaster explained the feeling was short-lived after he suffered an injury at the event.
Piers explained that as he made his exit, he accidentally smashed into a window leaving him slightly bruised.
The TV personality revealed that he had been tipped off that Prince Harry would be making an appearance via video link from California.
Piers began: “So it seemed a good time to go home.
“As I left, I could hear Harry lecturing the audience about the danger of ‘misinformation’ and ‘peddling lies’, without a shred of self-awareness.”
The ITV presenter added he chuckled as he took out of his phone to check the headlines about his “victory”.
“I felt a sudden rush of exhilaration at the end of what had been a tumultuous but ultimately very satisfying day,” he recalled, in his column for MailOnline.
“Then, as I reached the exit, still staring proudly at my phone, I walked straight into a large plate-glass window, banging my head so hard and loudly against it that concerned security guards rushed over to check I was OK.”
Piers explained he felt a wave of “agony” after the broadcaster suffered a brutal injury.

“I reeled back in agony, semi-concussed and with a cut opening above my right eye, only to see Harry’s massive head filling a nearby screen,” he added.
“He was smirking right at me.”
The broadcaster later urged Britons to vote for him at the National Television Awards after being nominated for the Best Presenter of Year award.
Piers claimed it “could possibly annoy Meghan Markle more” than the Ofcom ruling was “being crowned King of Television in front of millions of viewers”.
He recently took to micro-blogging site and revealed a message had been left on the windshield of his “filthy” car.
The note left on his car simply read: “Well done.”
Piers claimed it was left in response to his Ofcom victory adding the British public had “common sense”.
He tweeted: “Just found this on my (filthy!) car windscreen. Whoever put it there – thanks! The British public are a wonderful common sense bunch.
Piers added: “#OFCOM,” followed by a flex muscled emoji.
