Piers Morgan makes savage dig at Meghan Markle ahead of new interview

Piers Morgan has taken another savage dig at Meghan Markle ahead of the Duchess of Sussex’s upcoming interview later today.

The former Good Morning Britain presenter spoke before Meghan’s interview about her children’s book The Bench, making clear that ITV didn’t get rid of him after his exit and calling Meghan ‘Princess Pinocchio’.

Piers said that he left the show because he refused to apologise for saying he didn’t believe Meghan’s mental health revelations about her mental health.

The TV presenter quit Good Morning Britain after receiving record levels of complaints for doubting the Duchess of Sussex’s revelation that she considered suicide at the height of racist abuse.

Responding to a fan on Twitter, Piers said: ‘ITV didn’t get rid of me. I left GMB because I declined to apologise for disbelieving Princess Pinocchio.’

Referencing his interview with Dame Joan Collins, he added: ‘But I still work for ITV, as you’ll see tomorrow when my Life Stories show with @Joancollinsdbe airs at 9pm.’

The response came after a follower wrote: ‘But you’re not being urged to “be gotten rid of” the guy was referencing when ITV got rid of you…which they did! And you go on about virtue signalling!! Give me strength.’

Meghan is to give her first interview since giving birth to her daughter Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor on US radio show NPR Weekend later today. It’ll be the first time her fans get to hear from her since she gave birth to her second child on June 4.

The chat with host Samantha Balaban will be the only interview Meghan does about the book, according to friend Omid Scobie.

The book, inspired by a poem Meghan wrote for husband Prince Harry on father’s day, has been selling well in the US and topped the New York Times Bestsellers List for children’s picture books.

It has been less popular in the UK and only sold 3,212 copies in its first week after being published on June 8.
