AceShowbiz - Piers Morgan still has some words to say to Meghan Markle. Months after calling out the Duchess of Sussex over her tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, the former "Good Morning Britain" anchor slammed her once again for her "downright lies."
The 56-year-old discussed his feud with Meghan in a sneak peek of an interview with Australia's "60 Minutes", which will air on Sunday, June 6. When addressing her claim that she and Prince Harry were secretly married three days before the official ceremony, he argued, "They were downright lies."
"I don't believe a word she says," the English broadcaster further told host Karl Stefanovic. "That [ceremony] would make the Archbishop of Canterbury a criminal."
During the chat, Piers couldn't help but laugh when Karl branded him "an angry old man." He then fired back to insist, "Freedom of speech is actually more important than the Meghan Markle debacle."
Viewers might find it odd that Piers sat down with Karl, who slammed him in 2018 for accusing Meghan of pretending to be in love with Harry. "I think that's disgraceful," Karl said of Piers' comment. "I think she is an amazing, amazing woman. I think she is doing her very best at the moment, and she's got a lot on her plate. She’s doing it so beautifully. She's such a great export for Great Britain."
"I mean, what is that guy on? He's lost the plot completely," the Nine Network presenter went on. "I don't know how his poor co-host puts up with it. Imagine putting up with a dude like that who is so up himself and so egotistical that he would assume to say those things about her?"
Piers himself left "Good Morning Britain" in March this year after he said he didn't believe Meghan's suicidal claims in her interview with Oprah. "I don't believe a word she says, Meghan Markle. I wouldn't believe her if she read me a weather report," he declared at that time.
