In a recent interview with ‘Extra’ host Billy Bush, Piers Morgan said the royal family got in touch with him after he criticized Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s chat with Oprah Winfrey.
Morgan said the following:
“I’ve had some messages communicated to me on behalf of several members of the royal family.”
When the interviewer asked Morgan whether he had gotten support from “upper-level people,” he replied by saying:
“I’m not going to go into who it was. But what I would say is, gratitude that somebody was standing up.”

Morgan left his show “Good Morning Britain” after he was criticized for not believing Markle had suicidal thoughts.
When he was asked what he would say to her, Morgan said he’d like to ask her and Prince Harry to sit down for an interview similar to the Winfrey one, so he can ask them more difficult questions.
‘”If you hate the royal family that much, why do you keep your royal titles? Why do you keep calling yourselves the 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 frankly nauseating,”‘ he told Bush.
Morgan also talked about reports that Markle contacted ITV to make a complaint against him.
“Well I didn’t even know that Meghan Markle contacted my bosses at ITV. I didn’t find that out until I left,” he said. “It was certainly a very interesting revelation from where I sit because, clearly, she was trying to put huge pressure on my bosses to take action against me.”
His superiors allegedly asked him to make a live apology, but he refused to do so and simply quit.
In his interview with Bush, he stressed that his comments were not motivated by racial hatred.
“It’s not racist to disbelieve Meghan Markle. I don’t give a damn about her skin color,” he said. “I do care about the veracity of what she was saying.”
Morgan also told Tucker Carlson of Fox News that he has “universal support” from his fellow Brits, despite Ofcom, the United Kingdom’s TV regulator, receiving 57,000 complaints about him.
