Piers Morgan is willing to speak with Meghan Markle.
The 56-year-old television personality made headlines about a month ago when she offered intense criticism of Markle and Prince Harry’s claims against the royal family in her revealing interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Fallout from his criticism included his departure from the set of “Good Morning Britain” after being called out for his consistently negative view of the Duchess before it was announced that he would not be returning to the daytime show.
He was defended online by Sharon Osbourne, who subsequently left “The Talk” after receiving criticism for ultimately allowing her comments, which many have deemed racist.

As the drama surrounding the incident ends, Morgan has revealed what he would say to 39-year-old Markle if they spoke.
“I would say to Meghan Markle, ‘Look, sit down with me with your husband for an equally lengthy interview … and let me ask you more difficult questions about all of your claims,” she told Extra. But let me ask you a broader question, which is this: if you hate the royal family so much, why do you keep your royal titles? Why do you keep calling yourself the Duke and Duchess of Sussex? Why would you do that if it’s not just to make millions and millions of dollars? “
He added: “And playing the victim like you do is, frankly, nauseating.”
After the royal interview, Morgan said on the air that he did not believe the claims they made, including allegations of racism by the royal family and the revelation that Markle was facing suicidal thoughts due to intense media coverage.

Complaints were pressed on “Good Morning Britain” for his comments, with Markle reportedly being one of those who did so, apparently even calling an ITV executive to discuss the matter.
Morgan said she did not know that Markle had contacted her employer until after she left the program.
“It was certainly a very interesting revelation from where I’m sitting because clearly, she was trying to put enormous pressure on my bosses to take action against me,” he said.
In addition, he said that the complaints came from “an online mafia” which he accused of “abusing” his children and “threatening them with death.”

“The idea that my children had to be targeted by so-called liberals in a way that threatened them, abused and threatened them with death, etc. is completely disgusting,” Morgan said.
He also touched on the drama surrounding Osbourne, who clashed on-air with co-host Sheryl Underwood as she tried to explain why Morgan’s views could be seen as racist and why Osbourne’s support could be seen as enabling.
“Look what happened to Sharon on ‘The Talk’ for defending me and my right to have an opinion, even though she made it clear that she did not agree with everything I was saying,” he said. “She was then attacked by Sheryl Underwood on ‘The Talk,’ and she was accused of supporting someone who had said racist things.”
Morgan insisted that his disbeliever Markle is not a racist and that Underwood, not Osbourne, should be the co-host who lost his daytime show job “for falsely accusing [him] of racism “.

The media personality said he was “communicated” with messages from members of the royal family, thanking him for his support, but declined to reveal who offered his thanks and whether they were high-ranking members of the family.

“The only thing I would have done differently, I wouldn’t have come out in the middle of the show the way I did.” “I don’t think Americans realize it was only for a few minutes and I went back and did two more hours of the show.”
