Since Meghan Markle played a part in Piers Morgan's recent downfall, he couldn't help but take a swipe at her as he celebrated the start of a new job.

In March, the TV personality stated on Good Morning Britain that he didn't believe the actress' claims of having suicidal thoughts.

He was bashed by his colleagues for his opinion, and it was revealed that Duchess of Sussex herself and thousands of viewers sent in complaints to the network, prompting him to quit.

However, it was announced earlier this week that Morgan would be starring in a program of his own for Rupert Murdoch's News Corp, and while he celebrated his new venture at London's Scarsdale Tavern — the very same spot he and the Suits star first met — he made sure to call out Meghan.

"I need to say a special thank you [to] Meghan. As we sit drinking now, it was five years ago I met her here," he shared as he raised his glass to the crowd, The Sun reported.

"And I bet she was sitting there celebrating my departure from Good Morning Britain, so this move will be the stuff of nightmares for her," he noted. "So cheers, Meghan!"

Morgan will now be leading a global 60-minute show on the new channel talkTV.

"It’s a big move, and a hugely exciting one," he told The Sun. "News Corp is a company that believes in free speech, and doesn’t sign up to cancel culture or pander to the woke brigade. Everyone there has tough skins and won’t succumb to pressure from Twitter or anything else."

The star's new deal also includes weekly columns for The Sun and the New York Post.

"Piers is a brilliant presenter, a talented journalist and says what people are thinking and feeling," Murdoch said of the new hire. "He has many passionate fans around the world and we look forward to expanding his audience in the U.K., at FOX Nation, Sky News Australia, The Sun and the New York Post."
