Piers Morgan has spoken out over the events of the last month after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s tell all Oprah Winfrey interview lead to his resignation from Good Morning Britain.
The former ITV host came under fire for his rants about the Duchess of Sussex’s claims about the Royal Family after the 39 year old said she was “denied help” by one the “most senior” people with her suicidal thoughts. Prince Harry’s pregnant wife claimed she was told “it wouldn’t be good for the institution.”
Now, speaking to Fox Nation’s Tucker Carlson, 51, Piers has said he still finds her allegations to be “impossible”.

Addressing Meghan directly, the 56 year old said: “You’re making these incendiary claims. You’re accusing two 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? Did you tell a suicidal woman, who told you she was suicidal, she was not allowed to get help?'”
Piers, who recently wore a flower crown and wished peace to all his “haters”, added: “Because I find that impossible to believe.”
Meghan also claimed there were “concerns” over how dark her son Archie’s skin might be “when he’s born” and went further to add that ‘they didn’t want him to be a prince or princess”.
During his chat with Tucker, the TV personality said Meghan was “accusing the Queen and the Monarchy and the institution of being racist,” before adding: “That’s really what was going down here.”
He went on to state that if the question around the skin colour of their child was like somebody saying “given Meghan’s father is white, her mother’s black, what colour would the baby be,” that, he believes, would be an “innocent question”.

Piers admitted, however, that if the question were “loaded with a sense of derogatory tone or concern, then it becomes racism.”
He added that “we don’t know the context, we don’t know what was said.”
He also said Meghan’s claims around the institution not wanting Archie to be a prince is untrue as the one year old isn’t entitled to be a prince until his grandfather Prince Charles becomes king.
He said: “That boy was never going to be a prince until Prince Charles, Harry’s father, becomes king on the death of the Queen.
“And that’s gonna happen whatever the skin colour of Archie’s mother, that’s set-in-stone – it’s been the case for 100 years.”
