Piers Morgan has claimed that several members of the royal family contacted him to thank him for publicly calling out Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after their Oprah Winfrey interview.

“I’ve had some messages communicated to me on behalf of several members of the royal family,” the television personality told Extra TV’s host Billy Bush, one of several US interviews he has given since quitting Good Morning Britain.

He added: “I’m not going to go into who it was but [it was] gratitude that somebody was standing up.”

Morgan’s comments come after he also took aim at the royal couple in an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, where the broadcaster slammed Meghan as the “delusional duchess” and accused her of “making hundreds of millions” off her association with the royals while “trashing” the family in public.

He said that he hopes that Harry recognises Meghan “has a track record of ditching everyone and everything when they cease to be of use to her”.
