Piers Morgan jokes Archbishop of Canterbury must be DENIED unless he apologizes for ‘not believing Meghan Markle’s secret marriage claim’
- Justin Welby said the couple had married in Windsor, not three days earlier
- Meghan had claimed to Oprah that they had a secret ceremony for the big day
- Piers left GMB after declining to apologize for disbelieving Meghan’s other claims
Piers Morgan joked that the Archbishop of Canterbury should be fired after saying that Meghan and Harry were not married three days before their wedding – contradicting the Duchess’s claim in their bombshell Oprah interview.
The senior pastor rejected their on-screen insistence that he had married them in a secret ceremony before their wedding at Windsor Castle.
Justin Welby broke his silence, saying he signed Harry and Meghan’s marriage certificate on the day millions saw them get married.
Piers, who quit his job at Good Morning Britain after declining to apologize for saying he didn’t believe parts of Meghan’s interview, joked on Twitter this morning.
He said, “The Archbishop of Canterbury must either apologize for not believing Meghan Markle’s secret marital claims – or he must lose his job.”
Mr. Welby’s explanation of what happened does not match Meghan and Harry’s claim that they have a secret marriage to Oprah.

Justin Welby broke his silence on what the couple told Oprah Winfrey three weeks ago, saying he signed Harry and Meghan’s marriage certificate the day millions saw them get married.
The ironic joke was made on Piers’s Twitter feed this morning after the interview
Their legal marriage was at St George’s Chapel on Saturday, May 19, 2018, he said.
In her interview, Meghan raised eyebrows when she told Miss Winfrey that she and Harry were married “the two of us in our backyard with the Archbishop of Canterbury.”
But the 65-year-old priest told an Italian newspaper yesterday, “The legal wedding was on Saturday.”
He was asked ‘what happened to Meghan and Harry? Were you really married to them three days before the official wedding? ‘

But then he added, “I had a number of private and pastoral gatherings with the Duke and Duchess before the wedding.
The legal marriage was on Saturday. I signed the marriage certificate, which is a legal document, and I would have committed a serious crime if I signed it knowing it was false.
‘So that you can turn it into what you like. But the legal wedding was on Saturday. But I will not say what happened at other meetings. ‘
Harry and Meghan, who have now been completely relieved of their royal duties, returned to their claim to the private ceremony in a statement last week.
It had aroused serious suspicion, partly because legal marriage in the UK requires two witnesses.
A spokesman for the couple told US website The Daily Beast, “The couple exchanged personal vows a few days before their official / legal wedding on May 19.”
A backyard exchange of vows is not a marriage. Despite this, Harry came in during the Oprah interview, adding that it was “ the three of us. ”
Yesterday’s comments by the Archbishop do not categorically deny a private ceremony, but dispel any doubts about where and when the couple legally tied the knot.
Earlier, he had declined to speak out because the pressure on him increased to debunk the allegation.
