After the tell-all interview of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry aired in over 70 countries, many celebrities gave their opinions about the royal couple's truth, including Piers Morgan.

According to the British television personality, Meghan Markle's accusations and stories behind palace walls were not true, including her suicidal thoughts.

"THE TALK" ON HOLD

Morgan's friend, Sharon Osbourne, revealed her support for him in public, causing a heated argument between her and Sheryl Underwood as they hosted Wednesday's episode of "The View."

With everything that happened on-air and behind-the-scenes, CBS put the talk show on hiatus for two days, Monday, March 15, and Tuesday, March 16, as they investigated the matter. According to CBS' statement:

"We are committed to a diverse, inclusive, and respectful workplace. All matters related to the Wednesday episode of 'The Talk' are currently under internal review."

OSBOURNE LOSES CONTROL

During Wednesday's episode, "The Osbournes" star lashed out on Underwood while talking about her support for Morgan's freedom of speech. Although she made it clear that she disagreed with him, Osbourne's statement somehow propagated racism.

According to Markle, the institution shut down her request to seek help from medical professionals.

Underwood remained calm while talking to her co-host and signaled for a commercial when things were getting heated up. However, the 68-year-old remained defensive and cut off her co-host several times.

OSBOURNE'S APOLOGY

Osbourne has since issued a public apology on Instagram for her behavior and comment. According to the star, she had always received kindness and support from the black community. She added:

"[...] I am truly sorry. I panicked, felt blindsided, got defensive & allowed my fear & my horror of being accused of being racist to take over."

The British talk show host ended her lengthy post by hoping others can learn from her mistake and that she takes full accountability for her actions.

MARKLE AND HARRY'S INTERVIEW

Among the things that Markle revealed in her interview, which Morgan did not believe, are the racist comments the royal family made towards her firstborn.

He also disregarded the former "Suits" star's suicidal thoughts that stemmed from her difficult life inside the palace. According to Markle, the institution shut down her request to seek help from medical professionals.

Instead, she and her husband fled the United Kingdom and relocated to Montecito, California, where they now live with their son Archie and unborn daughter.
