“ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add. Following the interview, Piers did not mince his words, choosing to lash into the duchess and Prince Harry for attacking the monarchy“, for saying Queen Elizabeth II was racist and that Meghan was lying about her revealing that she was suicidal.

“I’m sorry, I don’t believe a word she said, Meghan Markle. I wouldn’t believe it if she read me a weather report,” he said in response to the interview on ”Good Morning Britain
Following his departure, Sharon tweeted that Piers was just speaking his truth and that she supported him. “@piersmorgan I am with you. I stand by you. People forget that you’re paid for your opinion and that you’re just speaking your truth,” she wrote.
