On March 7, 2021, Oprah Winfrey’s in-depth interview with Duchess Meghan, 39, and her husband Prince Harry, 36, aired. The pair opened up about the struggles they faced together as senior royals.

The CBS interview was aptly called “Oprah With Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special.” A day after the episode aired, “Good Morning Britain (GMB)” co-host Piers Morgan has given his outlook.

Morgan was one of Markle's biggest critics ever since she joined the Royal Family. He was remotely interviewed by Extra’s Billy Bush to hear his take on the TV special that has had tongues wagging.

In the YouTube clip, Bush began by asking Morgan if he agreed that the duchess had been terrific during the Winfrey interview. The co-host laughed and disagreed with Bush’s sentiments.

The Daily Mail editor-at-large explained that he thought Markle had been “completely disingenuous.” He also shared his thoughts on how the interview would affect the Sussexes, stating:

“I also think she's fired off a rocket here at the royal family and the monarchy and the Queen…”

Morgan said once the rocket was fired, it would be tough for the couple to take back their words because of the damage they’d caused. One of the claims the couple made was that their son’s race was discussed.

Harry and Meghan both claimed some Royal Family members spoke about Archie’s skin color when his mother was still pregnant with him. However, the Sussexes refused to name the people who’d brought up the topic.

Morgan felt the world deserved to know who the alleged person or people were who addressed Archie’s race. The co-host noted how the claim was quite damaging to the monarch and the Royal Family.

On Monday, Winfrey appeared on “CBS This Morning,” where she was interviewed about the CBS special by her best friend, Gayle King. She said Harry made it clear the person implicated wasn’t the Queen or Prince Philip.

Morgan also noted how the couple claimed a new rule was implemented to stop Archie from getting a royal title because of his skin color. He shared how the only person who could decide this was the Queen.

Therefore, the “GMB” host concluded that Harry and Markle were essentially calling the Queen a racist. He felt the duchess made up the allegations to further her racist claims against the family.

Morgan shared how Americans believed the claims made in the interview. He noted how Markle's acting past had allowed her to give an Oscar Award-winning performance for the special.

The editor-at-large thought the Duchess of Sussex was trying to show self-pity and pretend to be a victim in the midst of 2.5 million people dying from the coronavirus pandemic.

Morgan also lashed out at actor Patrick J. Adams for defending Markle, who was her former co-star on “Suits.” Two days before the interview aired, Adams tweeted a lengthy post standing up for the royal.

Someone who did get the better of Piers Morgan was Black activist Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu.

The “GMB” star responded by calling Markle “obscene” for attacking her husband’s family while Philip, 99, lay ill in hospital. The Queen’s husband has been in the hospital for more than 15 days after feeling unwell.

Someone who did get the better of Morgan was Black activist Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu. She went for him on his British talk show where he’d dismissed Markle's racism claims against the Royal Family.

The author and attorney got into a tense exchange with the television personality where she ended up calling him names. She also educated him about how the institution had been rooted in colonialism.
