Piers Morgan accused Meghan Markle of “downright lies” as he spoke about their feud in a new television interview.
Despite his insistence that he isn’t obsessed with the Duchess of Sussex, the former Good Morning Britain star is set to appear on Australian television to talk about the row which saw him step down from his role on the ITV show.
Piers famously left the daytime programme after refusing to apologise for his comments about Meghan and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Most notably, he said he didn’t believe her when she said she had struggled with suicidal thoughts while she was pregnant with baby Archie.
Some have accused him of being obsessed with Meghan, and some have suggested that he’s simply bitter that they were once friends but drifted apart after she met Prince Harry.
Piers, who denies all those things, says his problem with Meghan is the “downright lies” she’s told.
In a trailer for 60 Minutes, which sees him interviewed by host Karl Stefanovic, Piers took aim at Meghan’s comment about her and Harry secretly marrying days before their multi-million pound public wedding.
Of course, her claim was later proven to be inaccurate, with the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby confirming that no official documents were signed.
In his new TV appearance, Piers says: “They were downright lies.
“I don’t believe a word she says. That [ceremony] would make the Archbishop of Canterbury a criminal.”
