Osbourne's remarks come after Thomas Markle's interview with 'Good Morning Britain', in which he requested Meghan to introduce him to Lilibet and Archie.
He said, "I still haven't seen my grandkids, and that's what this is about. I want to see my grandkids, and I think the king would like to see his grandkids as well."
He pleaded, "Put the past behind us, let me see my grandkids,In the state of California, I can actually sue to see them, but I don't want to do that. The other thing is that I’ve done nothing wrong. There is no excuse for her to treat me this way, no excuse to treat the King that way as well. It’s no excuse to treat grandparents that way."
Osbourne and Morgan's views of the Sussexes has had a detrimental effect on their careers.
After attacking Meghan after her 2021 appearance on Oprah Winfrey's talk show, Morgan publicly quit 'Good Morning Britain'. The commentator said, "I don’t believe a word she says, Meghan Markle. I wouldn’t believe her if she read me a weather report."
Osbourne defended Morgan in a 2021 episode of 'The Talk', despite the fact that Morgan had sparked controversy with his remarks about Meghan.
Cohost Sheryl Underwood said, "It appears that you give validation or safe haven to something that he has uttered that is racist."
Osbourne said, "I feel like even I'm going to be put in the electric chair because I have a friend who many people think is a racist so that makes me a racist, and for me at 68 years of age to have to turn around and say 'I ain't racist'... how can I be racist?"

Following her on-air tantrum, Osbourne was removed from the daytime show and apologized, as reported by OK Magazine.
She wrote in a statement, "To anyone of color that I offended and/or to anyone that feels confused or let down by what I said, I am truly sorry, I panicked, felt blindsided, got defensive and allowed my fear and horror of being accused of being racist take over."
The music manager added, "They said to me, 'You are on permanent suspension. We don’t think that you’re repentant enough. And we will decide whether you ever come back. And I said, 'Well, who’s going to make that decision?’ And they said, ‘We can’t tell you.'"
