Piers Morgan Opens up About How the Royal Family Expressed Their Gratitude After He Defended Them
Piers Morgan reveals the Royal Family has reached out to him to express their gratitude for his loyalty to them amid Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Piers Morgan has been fiercely defensive of the Royal Family in the past couple of months, and it even came with a price. The British personality exited his show "Good Morning Britain" after he was called out for his blatant attacks on Meghan Markle.
While he has been criticizing the Duchess of Sussex for months now, his statements have gotten a lot more controversial in the wake of hers and Prince Harry's interview with Oprah Winfrey. While he lost his job, his loyalty seems to have paid off after he revealed that messages from the Royal Family had reached him.
Morgan revealed that several members of the monarchy were grateful for standing up for them. He refused to name who these members were.
"I've had some messages communicated to me on behalf of several members of the Royal Family. They were grateful that somebody was standing up for them."
Following the revelation, he shared a selfie of himself on Instagram, announcing his unwavering loyalty to the crown in the process. He took a picture in front of Kensington Palace's black and gold gate, stating he was "#TeamPalace."
The TV host demanded that the duchess reveal who the royals who denied her mental health support were.
Following Markle's interview with Winfrey, Morgan has not stopped defending the Royal Family. In fact, even after the "Good Morning Britain" episode where he and Alex Beresford argued on-air, which led to his removal from the show, he still expresses his thoughts freely.
Most recently, the TV host demanded that the duchess reveal who the royals who denied her mental health support were to see if there was any truth to her accusations. To the 56-year-old, there's no truth to what she said unless she could actually name these royal family members.
After watching the viral interview, Morgan suggested that a total of 17 claims made by the royal couple were already proven untrue or exaggerated. He went on to say that he still does not believe anything that Markle said at the time.
