Renowned British media personality, Piers Morgan has in a recent interview indicated that some members of the Royal Family have expressed gratitude to him for “standing up for them” amidst the bombshell interview between Oprah Winfrey, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in the US.
In the wake of their jaw-dropping interview with Oprah Winfrey about the Royal Family, Piers Morgan became one of the biggest critics of the couple as he expressed disgust at their accusations of the family.
Speaking in an interview with Extra, Piers Morgan revealed that he “had a lot of support privately from a lot of people” including some member of the Royal Family whom he vigorously defended throughout the wake of the interview that sparked widespread allegations in the UK.
“I’ve had some messages communicated to me on behalf of several members of the royal family who were grateful … that somebody was standing up for them,” the 56-year-old former Good Morning Britain show host said.
Unperturbed by the online trolls, Mr Morgan said he would also love to have his own follow-up interview with Meghan and Harry to confront them about their most damaging claims to Oprah Winfrey.
“I would say to Meghan Markle, ‘Look, sit down with me with your husband for an equally long interview, and let me ask you more difficult questions about all your claims,’” Morgan told Billy Bush.
“‘But let me ask you a wider question, which is this: If you hate the royal family that much… why do you keep your royal titles?’” he quizzed the couple who are still holding the title of Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
“Why would you do that if it’s just not to make millions and millions of dollars? And playing the victim, as you do, is nauseating,” he said.
On allegations of he been a racist over his consecutive backlash at Meghan, Morgan noted that he was equally critical of Prince Harry. “And last time I checked he was white. So I find this narrative deeply offensive,” he said.
