Meghan Markle latest news – Duchess and Harry lied SEVENTEEN times during Oprah interview, Piers Morgan claims

MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry lied or exaggerated 17 times during their bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview, Piers Morgan has claimed.

The former Good Morning Britain host insisted he was right not to believe the Duchess of Sussex in her Oprah interview, alleging that 17 of her claims in the chat have proved incorrect.

Piers, 56, was booted from his ITV morning show last month after expressing doubts over her bombshell allegations during the Oprah sit-down with Prince Harry.

In the interview Meghan, 39, had claimed that she was denied access to mental health care when she was feeling suicidal because she was told it “wouldn't look good for the institution”.

She also alleged that racist comments had been made by a senior royal about Archie's skin colour before his birth.

Now in his own interview with Fox News' Tucker Carlson last night, Piers demanded Meghan Markle reveal who specifically rejected her pleas for help over her mental health, before she quit as a frontline royal.

He also accused Harry and Meghan of "complete hypocrisy" with the interview and insisted he has the "universal support" of the British public.

In his first TV interview since he departed Good Morning Britain, Morgan told to American news personality he stood by his comments, blasting the couple for the "most extraordinarily disingenuous smear, hit job".

    PIERS MORGAN DEMANDS MEGHAN MARKLE REVEAL NAMES OF PEOPLE WHO WOULDN’T HELP HER

    Just six minutes into the hour-long bombshell interview, Tucker Carlson asked Piers Morgan about Meghan’s claims of suicidal thoughts.

    “You’re accusing two people in the palace of being unspeakably cruel simply to protect the brand of the Royal family, if that is true let’s have the names of these people and let’s go to them and ask them is this true,” Piers told Carlson.

    “‘Did you tell a suicidal woman, who told you she was suicidal, not to get help?’ – because I find that impossible to believe.”

    He added that Markle was “accusing the Queen and the Monarchy and the institution as being racist,” adding “that’s really what was going down here.”

    Piers said that if the question was as “innocent” as somebody saying “given Meghan’s father is white, her mother’s black, what color would the baby be” that he believes this would be an “innocent question.”

    PIERS SPEAKS

    Piers Morgan accused the Duke and Duchess of Sussex of "complete hypocrisy" over their interview with Oprah Winfrey and said he has the "universal support" of the British public.

    Morgan left his job on Good Morning Britain last month after saying he did not believe what Meghan had told Winfrey.

    The duchess said she was ignored when raising concerns about her mental health and that racist comments had been made before the birth of her son, Archie.

    In his first TV interview since he departed Good Morning Britain, Morgan spoke to US conservative news personality Tucker Carlson and stood by his comments, accusing the couple of the "most extraordinarily disingenuous smear, hit job" on the royal family.
