Piers Morgan news – Star slams Meghan Markle's BFF Gayle King for helping to spread couple's 'lies' about Royal Family

PIERS Morgan has blasted Gayle King for “acting” as Meghan and Harry’s “PR mouthpiece” – and said she should ask the couple about the “lies” they told Oprah. 

The former GMB presenter, 55, took aim at the broadcaster after she criticised the Royal family earlier this week.

During the Oprah interview, Meghan claimed an unnamed royal had raised “concerns” about the skin colour of her and Harry’s children and alleged the Palace had denied her mental health support.  

Speaking after the bombshell chat, Gayle King backed Meghan and said the Royal Family “has to acknowledge” its issue with race.

She added: “Right now, no one has acknowledged, Houston we have a problem here.”

It comes as Piers' GMB Meghan Markle rant became the most complained abut moment in Ofcom history after the host's sensational on screen exit.

Morgan, who had been on GMB since 2015, stormed off the set last week after becoming engaged in a row with co-star Alex Beresford.

His rant and row with Alex Beresford during the show on March 8 has now received 57,121 Ofcom complaints – the most ever.

    Celia, 45, has spoken out, writing in her Telegraph column: "Apparently Piers’ stance can be boiled down to his ‘unrequited love’ for Me-gain, ever since she contacted him in 2016 and, clearly thinking he could be of use to her, asked him out for a drink before ghosting him when she moved on to bigger and better things."

    Retweeting an article about his departure from GMB, Ana wrote: "If no other change comes out of the #OprahMeghanHarry interview, that it lead to @piersmorgan getting fired again from yet another job, seems like a good outcome for the benefit of humanity."

    Piers hit back: "Hi Ana, I wasn't fired by ITV (I'm still working for them) just as I wasn't fired by CNN (I was offered a new 2-year deal – ask Jeff). But great to see you're just as big a treacherous little back-stabber now as you were when I worked at CNN."

    Piers later revealed: “We had two hours in the pub, she had a couple of dirty martinis and pints – we got on brilliantly. Then I put her in a cab, and it turns out it was the cab that took her to a party where she met Prince Harry.

    “The next night they had a solo dinner and that was the last I ever heard from Meghan Markle. I never heard from her again – Meghan Markle ghosted me.”

    Piers said he was “ditched like a sack of spuds!”

    He wrote to Twitter: "Memo to all high-profile, insufferably woke, unctuously virtue-signalling, shamefully race-baiting hypocrites: I'm watching, and I will retaliate."

    "Meghan Markle herself put in a formal complaint to Piers Morgan," McCain told the chat show.

    "The only thing I have to say about that is Meghan Markle said in her interview, the only thing that I questioned, she said she didn’t read her press.

    "She’s clearly paying attention to her publicity if she’s putting in a formal complaint."

    The British broadcaster ITV confirmed that more than 57,000 complaints had been received regarding his controversial comments.

    Markle herself formally complained about the shocking remark, although Morgan has maintained: "Freedom of speech is a hill I'm happy to die on."

    Responding to the claims, Piers tweeted: “Hi @GayleKing – rather than acting as your Sussex friends’ PR mouthpiece to facilitate their ongoing public trashing of our Royal Family, how about doing your job as a journalist and ask them about all the lies they told in @Oprah’s interview?"

    “America should hear THE truth.”

    King also this week revealed Prince Harry had an “unproductive phone call” with Prince William – their first chat since the bombshell Oprah interview. 

    But sources told Vanity Fair that Wills was “worried” that private conversations with his brother could end up “plastered over American TV” following the revelation.
