Piers Morgan sat down with Fox host Tucker Carlson on Monday (5 April), in his first on-camera interview since leaving Good Morning Britain (GMB), following a row over comments he made about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.

“I still don’t believe what they were saying, and in particular, I don’t believe what Meghan Markle was saying,” Mr Morgan said in the interview, which aired on Fox Nation, Fox News’ subscription-based streaming service. “17 different claims by the pair of them have now been proven to be either completely untrue, or massively exaggerated, or unprovable.”

He added: “I didn’t believe Meghan Markle. A huge fury erupted through the day. I was in outrage. I wasn’t allowed to have an opinion that I didn’t believe what she was saying, even though it was clear to me in real time as I was watching the interview that there were a number of things that couldn’t be true.”

Mr Morgan also told Carlson that he was told to believe Markle’s side, “and if you don’t believe what she’s saying, then you’re a racist”.

“I just find that impossible to believe that you would have two people in the palace who would be that callous to a woman telling them that she was suicidal,” he continued.

Morgan noted that “there’s the position of Prince Harry in all this. He is attached to many of the biggest mental health charities in Britain. He makes no secret of his desire that everyone who feels depressed or anxious or has suicidal thoughts to get immediate help, and yet here was his wife who says she was feeling constantly suicidal, and Prince Harry never sought to get her help. And I find that very hard to believe frankly.”

The embattled TV personality also lashed out at the Duchess of Sussex for her accusations in her and Prince Harry’s Oprah interview, and urged her to name names.

“You’re accusing … 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,” he said.

“So for Meghan Markle to try and create a story that says that the decision to not make Archie the title of prince was based on his skin color is a lie.”

Mr Morgan stormed off GMB’s set last month after he was criticised by a colleague for questioning the validity of some of the claims made by the couple in their talk with Ms Winfrey.

The former Daily Mirror editor dismissed remarks by the Duchess of Sussex describing her mental health struggles and suicidal thoughts.

His comments generated nearly 60,000 complaints to the British television regulator, Ofcom. On 9 March Mr Morgan said he “didn’t believe” a word the duchess said in the interview. He left the programme hours later.

In a clip to promote the interview, Mr Carlson claimed that Mr Morgan was “banished” from UK television for “asking a simple question”.

“How is it that the most privileged people in our society get away with posing as the most oppressed?” Mr Calrson said of his interviewee’s comments on Harry and Meghan.
