The senior royal's message was shared just hours after grandson Prince Harry ranted from LA about the Press.
Harry and Meghan yesterday revealed their decision to “refuse” to deal with newspapers including The Sun following their move to LA.
Speaking this morning, Piers praised Prince Philip, who retired from public duties in 2017, for sharing the tribute to vital workers, saying: "That's a man who understands what the common man and woman, the non royals go through, and empathises."
He added: "Comparing the class of Prince Philip, which has been mirrored by his wife the Queen, by the Cambridges, by the others, with these whiny little brats in Hollywood.
"They think now is a good time to go ahead with the legal action and drag all the mud out.
"Not a single part of them thought maybe this wouldn't be a good time."
The 55-year-old went onto wish the Queen a happy birthday as she celebrates turning 94 today – paying tribute to her "continued extraordinary service".
But he then refused to continue the royal coverage as it turned to discussing Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
He said: "There was a bit about Harry and Meghan as well but I can't be bothered."
Crossing to GMB reporter Nick Dixon, he said: "Let's not talk about Meghan and Harry, I can't be a**ed to be honest."
Give now to The Sun's NHS appeal
BRITAIN’s four million NHS staff are on the frontline in the battle against coronavirus.
But while they are helping save lives, who is there to help them?
The Sun has launched an appeal to raise £1MILLION for NHS workers.
The Who Cares Wins Appeal aims to get vital support to staff in their hour of need.
We have teamed up with NHS Charities Together in their urgent Covid-19 Appeal to ensure the money gets to exactly who needs it.
The Sun is donating £50,000 and we would like YOU to help us raise a million pounds, to help THEM.
No matter how little you can spare, please donate today here
He said: "Let's focus on the fact that it's the Queen's birthday today.
"Let's forget about the ones in Hollywood whining about their miserable poor lives.
"They make me puke."
And when fellow GMB host Susanna Reid suggested "stop talking about them", the outspoken presenter agreed.
He said: "They have banned a number of newspapers.
"Today, we are banning Meghan and Harry from Good Morning Britain for the foreseeable future."
The Sussexes yesterday said there would be “zero co-operation” with any newspapers other than their favoured media organisations.
Sources said their statement — sent from an official “Sussex Royal” email — had also caused “private dismay” within the family, who are working hard to tackle issues surrounding the pandemic.
Join our George Cross campaign for NHS staff
We are urging Sun readers to sign a petition calling for our NHS staff to be awarded the George Cross.
We are backing a proposal by Lord Ashcroft to honour our health heroes with the gallantry gong given for acts of bravery that did not take place in battle.
A No10 spokesman said: “The NHS is doing a fantastic job and the nation will want to find a way to say thank you when we have defeated this virus.”
SAS hero Andy McNab added: “The award of a George Cross would show an emotional appreciation.”
We are asking our readers to please sign the petition below.
