Piers Morgan, 56, left his post at GMB after six years over comments about Meghan Markle in the wake of her interview with Oprah Winfrey. Now, the famously outspoken presenter has aired his feelings about the row to Fox News’s Tucker Carlson.

So what did he say?

In the hour-long interview, Piers said he had the support of Britain, criticised Meghan and Prince Harry further, brought Princess Diana into the row, and stood by his initial claims that the Duchess was a liar.

He told Tucker Carlson: “The British people have seen through this.

“Old, young, black, white, it didn’t matter. They’ve been coming up to me in their droves all day every day.”

He described Meghan Markle as a “delusional duchess who is on the make” and accused her and her husband of “complete hypocrisy”.

The former Daily Mirror editor also criticised the couple for their commercial deals with Spotify and Netflix and referred to Meghan’s acting career and the legal drama Suits.

He said: “They’re not making all this money through talent – Meghan was an OK actress on a show not many people watched.”

Piers added: “Would they be getting the Oprah Winfrey, two-hour whine-a-thon slot if they weren’t royal? No.

“Their entire existence is now being financed by their royal connection.

“The same royal connection which they spent nearly two hours lambasting on global television and saying how much they hate it.

“It’s not just inconsistent, it’s not just hypocritical, it’s actually shameful.

“And to do this to the Queen, who has barely put a foot wrong in 68 years of dutiful service to my country… she is a respected woman because she’s earned that respect.”

On Harry, he said he had “turned into a whiny brat in his mid-30s complaining his dad isn’t still financing everything he does”.

He said the Oprah interview was “tacky, tasteless, disingenuous” and the pair told “so many ridiculous whoppers” when making accusations of racism and a lack of welfare support.

The Life Stories host also said he fell victim to the “woke mob” because he “stood up and said no” after the interview.

Piers claimed the late Princess Diana would be “horrified” at Meghan’s allegations of royal family racism.

He said: “I knew Princess Diana well. I think she would be horrified by the split between Harry and his brother, by the schism now between Harry and the royal family generally, by the appalling smearing of the Queen, which is already causing damage in some of the Commonwealth countries, who are buying into this outrageous lie that the Queen is somehow racist, presiding over a racist institution.”

Shortly after the Oprah interview, Piers said he “didn’t believe a word” Meghan said about having suicidal feelings during her time in the Royal Family.

Co-host Alex Beresford said his behaviour was “absolutely diabolical” and ITV announced Piers’s departure shortly after.

Speaking to Tucker Carlson, Piers said: “I’ve had plenty of time to analyse all the analysis of what she was saying and what Prince Harry was saying, and I still don’t believe what they were saying, and in particular I don’t believe what Meghan Markle said.

“I didn’t believe Meghan Markle, a huge furore erupted through the day. I was an outrage.

“I wasn’t allowed to have an opinion that I didn’t believe what she was saying even though it was clear to me in real-time as I was watching the interview that there were a number of things which just couldn’t be true.”

He added: “I just find that impossible to believe that you would have two people in the palace who would be that callous to a woman telling them that she was suicidal.

“You’re accusing two people in the palace of being unspeakably cruel simply to protect the brand of the royal family.

“If that is true, let’s have the names of these people and let’s go to them and ask them, ‘Is this true? Did you tell a suicidal woman who told you she was suicidal she was not allowed to get help?’ Because I just find that impossible to believe.”

And he added later in the interview: “I’m not a racist. I just don’t believe her.”
