Members of the royal family have sent private messages to Piers Morgan, thanking him for “defending” them after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle told it all on television, the former television host revealed.
Morgan quickly became one of the couple’s most outspoken critics, even quitting his job hosting “Good Morning Britain” instead of apologizing.
Since then, he has “had a lot of private support from a lot of people,” including royalty that he has vigorously defended, Morgan told “Extra.”
“I got some messages on behalf of various members of the royal family who were grateful … that someone stood up for them,” said the 56-year-old former “America’s Got Talent” judge.
However, he remained coy when asked if he included messages from “higher-level people”, saying, “Well, I’m not going to go into who he was.”
The support also extended to his own family, even when his children received death threats from “so-called liberals” who were “propelled by an online mafia.”
“My wife has always been very supportive of me in this, but she hates online abuse,” he said, calling the threats to her children “completely disgusting.”
Boasting that it remains “resolutely uncanceled,” Morgan said she’d also love to have her own follow-up interview with Meghan and Harry to confront them about their most damaging claims about Oprah Winfrey.
“I was saying to Meghan Markle, ‘Look, sit down with me with your husband for an equally long interview and let me ask you more difficult questions about all of your claims,'” Morgan told Billy Bush.
“‘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?'” He said of the couple who are still known as the Duke and Duchess. from Sussex. .
“Why would you do that if not to make millions and millions of dollars? And playing the victim, like you do, is nauseating, “he said.
Morgan angrily defended himself against accusations that his attacks on Markle are racist, noting that he is just as critical of Harry “and last time I checked he was white.”
“So I find this narrative deeply offensive,” he said.
