Meghan Markle and Piers Morgan’s complicated relationship


Morgan’s departure from “Good Morning Britain” on Tuesday was the culmination of a five-year saga.

Monarchists in the United Kingdom are, naturally, up in arms at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s explosive appearance with Oprah Winfrey.

During the conversation, Markle said that she had suicide thoughts and was denied medical care from the palace. Most startlingly, the couple said that the royal family had “conversations” and “concerns” about the skin tone of their children.

Piers Morgan continued his criticism of the Duchess of Sussex on ITV’s Good Morning Britain.

Morgan departed the program on Tuesday, claiming that he “didn’t believe a word” Meghan said in an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

But it hasn’t always been hostile — Morgan’s relationship with Markle began civilly enough in 2015, when the then-actress supposedly messaged Morgan after he had followed her and several of her “Suits” co-stars. In January of this year, Morgan tweeted an image of the 6-year-old text, writing, “think it’s fair to say she’s probably not such a ‘big fan’ of mine now.”


After Harry and Meghan announced their intention to step down as senior royals, one of Morgan’s columns called them “grasping, selfish, scheming Kardashian wannabes,” while another called them “the world’s most tone-deaf, hypocritical, narcissistic, deluded, whiny brats” and “appallingly bitter, staggeringly self-obsessed, utterly deluded, and woefully tone-deaf laughing stocks.”

“We’ve now seen dozens of other people say they too got ghosted, we all got frozen out. She had reached a loftier place and there was no room for people like us,” Morgan said, according to Metro. “It raises a few alarm bells that she was prepared to just cut people. She did it to her ex-husband, she’s done it to almost all of her family.”

Morgan appeared to be especially devastated by Markle’s “ghosting” since, in his perspective, he was responsible for placing her in the car that would drive her to meet her future husband. Morgan revisited his memories of Markle in a 2018 appearance with “The Late Late Show,” labeling her a “social climber.”

Morgan remarked in a tweet as the show began on Wednesday: “On Monday, I said I didn’t believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview. I’ve had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don’t.”

He continued, saying: “Freedom of speech is a hill I’m happy to die on. Thanks for all the love, and hate. I’m off to spend more time with my opinions.” His message was accompanied by a photo of Winston Churchill with a quote about free speech.

Later, outside his London home, he described his departure as “amicable” adding, “I had a good chat with ITV and we agreed to disagree.”

He elaborated: “I believe in freedom of speech, I believe in the right to be allowed to have an opinion. If people want to believe Meghan Markle, that’s entirely their right.

“I don’t believe almost anything that comes out of her mouth and I think the damage she’s done to the British monarchy and to the Queen at a time when Prince Philip is lying in hospital is enormous and frankly contemptible.

“If I have to fall on my sword for expressing an honestly held opinion about Meghan Markle and that diatribe of bilge that she came out with in that interview, so be it.”
