Piers Morgan has shared how members of the Royal Family have got in touch with “messages of support” over his coverage of Meghan Markle.
On US television last night, the 56-year-old ex-Good Morning Britain star revealed all.
“I’ve had some messages communicated to me on behalf of several members of the royal family,” he told Extra.
“I’m not going to go into who it was. But what I would say is, gratitude that somebody was standing up.”
“I’m not a racist,” he later added.
“Nothing I’ve ever said about Meghan Markle is either racist or racially motivated. I’ve been very critical of Prince Harry and last time I checked he was white and so I find this narrative deeply offensive.”
Piers added: “There’s been an attempt to cancel me.
“There’ve been many attempts like this before, and somehow I remain resolutely uncancelled.
“In the end, I was required to apologise for disbelieving Meghan Markle, who I don’t believe – and I believe, which is ironic, that you should not believe somebody if you don’t want to.”
He continued: “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.
“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?
“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.”
