Piers Morgan has predicted that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s first child will be “a gender-fluid vegan.”
During a discussion about the royal baby on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday (October 16), the host sarcastically told viewers: “Once she’s said she’s pregnant, there’s so much more to say about a woman who’s three months pregnant.”
Co-host Kate Garraway asked: “Could it be a girl, or could it be a boy?” which prompted Morgan to chime in, saying: “Or could it be gender-fluid?”
Morgan continued: “Will it eat meat or will it be a vegan?
“I’d imagine she’s going to put this little thing through the wringer, right — it’ll be vegan, no avocado, it’ll be gender-fluid, a gender-fluid vegan.”
Morgan has previously been critical of gender-fluid people on the ITV show, calling them “damaging to society” earlier this year,

Kensington Palace announced on Monday that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting their baby — who will be seventh in line to the throne — to be born in the spring of 2019.
Morgan has a history of mocking non-binary people and those who identify as gender-fluid — that is, someone who does not define their gender as fixed or binary.
Last year, he interviewed a gender-fluid, bisexual and polyamorous guest who goes by Tabitha or Tate Downs-King depending on where they feel they are on the gender spectrum that day.
Morgan called the 21-year-old “confused,” adding that “if you can identify as who the hell you like can I literally look at myself and say — and I’ve made this joke before — I’m an elephant today.”
Reacting to Church of England guidance designed to support children who want to wear stereotypically male clothing one day and classically female items the next, the presenter said: “We’re all going to be fluid. We’re all going to be giraffes.”
Writing last year in his Mail on Sunday column, he said: “My number one pet hate at the moment is the absurd ‘gender-fluid’ movement, driven by people who don’t wish to be defined as either male or female.”
LGBT+ charity Stonewall condemned his comments about non-binary people as “bigoted and transphobic” after he told trans, non-binary couple Fox Fisher and Owl that non-binary children were “a contagion” and identifying as non-binary was “a massive new fad.”
Morgan also told viewers that “two or three” trans kids had died from suicide in 2016, adding: “It’s incredibly small… Well, that’s just a stat I read; I don’t know if it’s true or not.”
A study published by researchers at the University of Arizona last month showed that 28 percent of teenagers questioning their gender identity had tried to die by suicide in the past year.
