Nearly a month has passed since Meghan Marklespoke to Oprah Winfreyabout her and Prince Harry‘s departure from the royal family, and Piers Morgan is still hung up on the explosive claims made by the Duchess.
On Monday, April 5, the former Good Morning Britain co-host joined Fox Nation’s Tucker Carlson Today to air his grievances about the interview, calling Markle’s claims “impossible to believe.”
“Here we are a month later, and frankly—I’ve had plenty of time to think about this—I still don’t believe any of what they were saying,” he insisted. “Seventeen different claims by the pair of them have now been proven to be either completely untrue or massively exaggerated or unprovable. I don’t understand why I should have to believe people who are not telling the truth.”
He didn’t specify which of her claims were inaccurate.
In Markle’s sit-down, she alleged the royal family prevented her from defending herself against attacks from the U.K. tabloids, that the Palaces did not treat her and Harry with the same respect as they did Prince William and Kate Middleton, or other members of the family and that they expressly forbid her from seeking treatment.
Morgan added that if the accusations involving the royal family are true, Markle should give names so the issues can be properly confronted. He said, “If you’re going to accuse someone of racism, then you better put up some facts.”
The controversial figure then stated that he doesn’t doubt the severity of Markle’s mental health struggles, saying, “It’s not for me to say that she felt suicidal.”
However, he did say that he doesn’t believe the Duchess of Sussex actually spoke to anyone in the royal family or in the household about her mental health, describing how he finds it “impossible to believe” that anyone would tell a suicidal woman she’s “not allowed to get help.”
Additionally, he said if Markle was truly suicidal, then Prince Harry should share in the blame since he’s an outspoken advocate for mental health. As Morgan put it, “He makes no secret of his desire that everyone who feels depressed or anxious or has suicidal thoughts to get immediate help, and yet here was his wife who says she was feeling constantly suicidal, and Prince Harry never sought to get her help. And I find that very hard to believe frankly.”
Regarding the claims that an unidentified member of the royal family raised questions regarding Archie Harrison‘s skin tone, Morgan said viewers can’t know the truth without knowing the “context of that conversation.” He added, “We simply don’t know, and we don’t even know who supposed to have said this.”
Morgan said he was particularly angered by the insinuation that Archie wasn’t given a title because of his skin color, because from his perspective, it’s “completely untrue.”
