Controversial former British morning show host Piers Morgan has revealed which royal family member supported him during his most recent attacks against Meghan Markle.
Morgan, 55, revealed that Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, sent a text message of support after he was forced to resign from his position as co-host of Good Morning Britain on ITV.
His comments following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s television interview with Oprah Winfrey were what forced him into resigning.
Morgan wrote in his column for the Mail on Sunday that several royal family members contacted him after he left the show, including the Duchess.
“Not all Royal duchesses were as thrilled as Meghan ‘Pinocchio’ Markle to see me leave GMB,” he wrote.”People have said how much they miss your morning joy and humour.”
He said Ferguson texted for him to “Get back out there!”
He went on to joke that he and Ferguson could start their own show called “Morgy and Fergie in the Morning”.
He repeated the claim on US TV show Extra: “I’ve had some messages communicated to me on behalf of several members of the royal family.
“I’m not going to go into who it was but [it was] gratitude that somebody was standing up.”
Piers Morgan slammed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex during their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.
He targeted their claim that a senior royal had made racist comments about the colour of Archie’s skin before his birth.
Morgan has since demanded the couple name that senior royal.
He also said he was doubtful that Meghan was telling the truth when she said employees at The Firm refused to provide her with mental health support when she was pregnant with Archie.
Morgan told Fox Nation he wanted to know who the alleged racist royal was.
“As a British taxpayer, who helps pay for the royal family, I would like to know, actually, if there is a real racist inside the palace,” he said.
The controversial critic ended up storming off the set of GMB during a discussion about the Oprah interview.
While he quickly resigned from his position on the program, he remains adamant that Harry and Meghan should name the senior royal they have accused of racism.
