Morrissey yesterday hinted the Duchess of Cambridge was to Blame for the suicide of hoax phone call nurse Jacintha Saldanha.
In a vile rant, the ex-Smiths frontman also accused the Royal Family of “staggering” arrogance over the tragedy.
And he questioned if Kate, 30, was really suffering from pregnancy sickness at all.
Morrissey, 53, told a New Zealand TV channel: “There is no blame so far placed at Kate Middleton, who was in the hospital, as far as I could see, for absolutely no reason. She feels no shame about the death of this woman. The arrogance of the British royals is staggering.”
He added: “Does she have a health condition? Is it anorexia or is it pregnancy? So much hoo-ha and then as soon as this woman dies she’s out of hospital? It doesn’t ring true.”
The result of a post mortem into the death of mum-of-two Mrs Saldanha, 46, is due at her inquest.
The Australian Communications and Media Authority, the country’s broadcating watchdog, last night launched an investigation into the 2Day FM radio station behind the hoax call.
