At the beginning of the week, an interview conducted by Oprah Winfrey with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, was released. In this interview, the couple shared their experiences of mistreatment by the British Royal Family. This conversation sparked a wave of public support for the Duke and Duchess while also intensifying the scrutiny on the Royal Family. However, a certain British TV personality held the view that Markle’s account was exaggerated or fabricated and stood firm in his stance.

During the Monday broadcast of ITV’s “Good Morning Britain,” presenter Piers Morgan cast doubt on Markle’s narrative, particularly her assertion that the Royal Family’s treatment had led her to contemplate suicide. This stance immediately triggered a strong negative reaction from audiences, especially mental health organizations and advocates. The next day, Morgan was rebuked for his remarks on air by his co-host, Alex Beresford.

“I comprehend that you [Morgan] harbor animosity towards Meghan Markle, you’ve made that abundantly clear on numerous occasions during this program,” Beresford stated. “I’m aware that there might have been a personal connection between you and Meghan Markle, but she decided to cut ties,” he continued.

“Has she made any comments about you since breaking off contact? I don’t think she has, yet you persist in denigrating her,” Beresford remarked.

In response, Morgan abruptly rose from his seat and departed the set, saying, “Alright, I’m finished with this, I’m sorry, no, sorry… see you later, sorry, can’t continue with this.”

Shortly following his abrupt exit, ITV disclosed that Morgan had chosen to resign from his role. “After deliberations with ITV, Piers Morgan has opted to step down from Good Morning Britain at this time,” the network conveyed. “ITV acknowledges this verdict and has no additional comments to offer.”

Subsequently, Morgan took to his personal Twitter account to reiterate his skepticism towards Markle’s testimonial, asserting that “Defending freedom of expression is a principle I strongly adhere to.”
