Piers Morgan Claims Sarah Ferguson Texted Him To 'Get Back Out There' After He Quit 'Good Morning Britain'
Controversial TV personality Piers Morgan claims Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York reached out to him after he quit Good Morning Britain last month.
The star has been sharing updates of his life in a column for the Daily Mail, and in April 9th's note, he touched on his departure from the gig.
"Not all Royal duchesses were as thrilled as Meghan ‘Pinocchio’ Markle to see me leave GMB," he wrote. "People have said how much they miss your morning joy and humour,’ texted Sarah, Duchess of York, ‘get back out there!’"
"Perhaps we should start a new breakfast show together… ‘Morgy and Fergie in the Morning,' anyone?" he quipped.
Morgan left the morning show after he revealed that he didn't believe Meghan Markle when she stated she experienced suicidal thoughts. He was criticized by his coanchors for his words, and the public sent in over 50,000 complaints to the network. It was reported that the actress herself also made a complaint.
This isn't the first time that Morgan has publicized having a close relationship with the royal family. Less than a week ago, he declared members of the brood thanked him for all of the support he's given them amid the Meghan drama.

"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," he shared on Extra.
"Well, I’m not going to go into who it was," he replied when asked if "upper level people" were the ones to reach out. "But what I can say is gratitude for someone who was standing up for me."

Following the death of Prince Philip, Morgan posted a tribute to him on social media.
"RIP Prince Philip, 99. A truly great Briton who dedicated his life to selfless public duty & was an absolute rock of devoted support to Her Majesty, The Queen, as the longest-serving royal consort to any British sovereign," he tweeted. "A very sad day for our country. Thank you, Sir."
