It's safe to say Piers Morgan has had enough of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. The TV personality quit Good Morning Britain earlier this year after he didn't apologize for saying he didn't believe the former actress was suicidal while living in the U.K. — a decision he still stands by.
"In relation to the [Oprah Winfrey] interview, we now know that there were at least 17 things that came out of Meghan Markle's mouth, which have now been proven to be untrue, so I don't know at what point I'm allowed to not have to apologize for disbelieving somebody who is palpably a liar," he said on Fox News.
"It is a farcical situation, and of course with all these situations at the minute, with the cancel culture, the Twitter mob come for you and say, 'Well if you don't believe Meghan Markle you are a racist,'" he continued. "To which I say, I've never said a racist thing about Meghan Markle or anybody else, it has nothing to do with the color of her skin and everything to do with her inability to tell the truth and her rank hypocrisy."
Ultimately, Morgan wants the couple — who left the royal family in 2020 — to stop talking smack about their brood.
"I think it's about time those two gave up their titles, stop whining 24/7 and try to take a leaf out of the book of the Queen, whose nickname, Lilibet, they've hijacked for their daughter," he fumed. "Take a little tip from the Queen, less is more, and if you want to be a royal, a member of the royal family, less is more. We're hearing too much of your yapping, too much of your whining, it's time to pipe down."
Morgan has made it clear that is not a fan of Harry and Meghan, but he noted that while on TV in Britain, he has to refrain from making certain types of comments.
"It's very difficult. We are government regulated," he explained. "There is a regulatory body called Ofcom whose only job it is to basically boss around people on the airwaves and tell us what we can and can't say. Very different to what happens in the United States — you're covered by the first amendment. The same first amendment that Prince Harry can't stomach because he only wants the right for the media to say nice things about him — not to hold him to account."
Despite leaving the television show, it seems like Morgan is still in demand. "Well, I'm definitely having some very interesting conversations Sean, as you can probably imagine," he said. "There are lots of people that wouldn't mind a piece of the action with somebody who trebled the ratings on that morning show in five years, which is what we did."
