Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's interview with Oprah Winfrey on Sunday, March 7, has sparked reactions from all over the world. During the conversation, the couple dropped several bombshell revelations.

However, Meghan's allegations of racism against some members of the royal family regarding Archie's skin color have made headlines and were intensely discussed on Monday's episode of the hit show "Good Morning Britain."

The ITV show, which has Piers Morgan as a co-host, featured guest panelists to dissect the matter, leading to a heated exchange. A segment of the show saw Morgan and TV presenter Trish Goddard clash over the topic.

While Goddard explained that asking for Archie's skin color before he was born came off as a racist remark, Morgan believed that it was an innocent and curious question asked by a royal family member.

Goddard, however, clapped back, urging Morgan not to behave like an authority on racism. At some point, Morgan and his co-host Susanna Reid got into it when Reid accused him of shutting down her opinions.

In the CBS special with Winfrey, Harry and Meghan shared several shocking revelations about their time as royals.

Another section of the show saw activist Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu as a panelist. She and Morgan got into an on-air shouting fit as she labeled the monarchy as an institution rooted in white supremacy and racism.

However, Morgan wasn't having it and called her comments disgusting, and Mos-Shogbamimu hit back, calling him also disgusting. Before the interview with Winfrey aired, Morgan wrote a column on Daily Mail blasting Harry and Meghan.

The 55-year-old accused the royal couple of being selfish and described them as narcissistic as they planned to go on national television, not minding that Prince Philip was battling severe health issues.

He also claimed that although Meghan always advocated for privacy from the media, she ran back to the media to garner attention. In the CBS special with Winfrey, Harry and Meghan shared several shocking revelations about their time as royals.

Apart from the topic of racism, Meghan disclosed that she endured mental struggles and felt suicidal. She also revealed that she and Prince Harry had a secret intimate wedding three days before the public ceremony at St. George's Chapel.

When Harry joined the conversation, he shared that he was cut off financially by the royal family in the first quarter of 2020 and could only survive on the money left for him by his late mother, Princess Diana.
