Piers Morgan has stated that he was right not to believe Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in their all-telling interview with Oprah Winfrey last month, as 17 of their claims have since proven false, exaggerated, or unverifiable.

Morgan, a columnist editor in general for DailyMail.com, sat down for his own tell-all with Fox News presenter Tucker Carlson that aired Monday, where he pledged to reveal ‘MY truth’ about the controversy surrounding his criticism of Meghan and Harry which led to his departure from Good Morning Britain.

Morgan sparked a firestorm on social media the day after the Oprah interview on March 7 when he said he ‘didn’t believe a word’ of what Meghan said about experiencing racism within the royal family and feeling suicidal while pregnant with son Archie.

Speaking to Carlson on Monday on his Fox Nation show, Morgan doubled down on his original comments.

“What I witnessed was the most extraordinarily insincere slander, hit job, about the royal family, about the queen, about the monarchy, and frankly about Britain, my country,” he said.

I went into the air with full bubbles on Monday morning and said very clearly that I didn’t believe what Meghan Markle said. Here we are a month later and frankly, I’ve had plenty of time to think about this – I still don’t believe what they said.

Seventeen different claims from the two are now either completely untrue, or hugely exaggerated, or unprovable.

“I don’t understand why I have to believe people who aren’t telling the truth.”

Piers confirmed the news of his interview with Carlson on his Twitter account on Saturday, writing, ‘Time for America to hear MY truth …’

In another update shared on Friday night, Piers poked fun at Meghan, 39, as he referred to the moment when Oprah, 67, asked if she was “ quiet or silenced? ” to which the wife of Prince Harry, 36, accused the royal establishment of silencing her.

Piers once again cast doubt on the authenticity of her allegations and used Oprah’s demand to highlight his departure from GMB.

He joked: ‘UPDATE: On Monday I give my first interview since leaving Good Morning Britain to @TuckerCarlson on his new @ foxnation show, with highlights that night on his @ FoxNews show.

Was I silent or was I silenced? (crying laughing emoji). ‘

Carlson, 51, also confirmed the news on social media when he shared an exclusive excerpt from the interview, saying, “ So, Piers Morgan was banned from television for asking a simple question: How do the most privileged people in our society get away? with posing as the most oppressed?

Because they asked him if they were crushing him, they took his job away. On Monday we speak with Piers Morgan for his first in-depth interview on camera since he was canceled. ‘

Morgan resigned from GMB on March 9 – a day after storming the set during an on-air feud with weatherman Alex Beresford, who criticized him for “ continuing to destroy ” the Duchess of Sussex.

More than 41,000 complaints were received by Ofcom, the UK communications regulator, including one from Meghan herself after the collision.

The Duchess would have expressed concern at ITV about the effect Morgan’s comments may have on the issue of mental health in general and those trying to solve their own problems.

But Morgan later reiterated his condemnation of her interview the next day when he told reporters outside his West London home, ‘If I have to fall on my sword for expressing a heartfelt opinion about Meghan Markle and that rant she came out with in that interview, so be it. ‘

Shortly after, he announced his resignation and tweeted his thanks to the GMB team, praising them for their “ hard work and dedication ” that led to them beating their main breakfast TV rival.

After his departure, at least three petitions calling for Morgan’s reassignment to GMB have collected more than 240,000 signatures.

Last month, Morgan announced he had quit GMB after co-star Alex Beresford (right) disputed his comments about Meghan.

Morgan ruled out a return to the show, but called the petitions a “ pleasant surprise ” in a March 13 Instagram statement.

‘I’m not going back, but I want to thank everyone who signed these petitions. Normally people start petitions to have me fired or deported, so this is a pleasant surprise, ” he wrote.

“Those of you who know me well know that, despite my many mistakes, I am always ready to stand up for the things I think matter most.

My staunch opposition to the Iraq War led to my downfall from the Daily Mirror. My outspoken opinion of the madness of the US gun laws led to the end of my time at CNN.

“And now I’ve lost my job at Good Morning Britain for choosing to apologize for not believing Meghan Markle’s claims in her interview with Oprah Winfrey.”

He added: “So I became the latest ‘victim’ of the cancellation culture pervading our country, every minute, every hour, every day. But of course I don’t consider myself a victim, nor as canceled.

“However, I do believe that defending freedom of expression and the right to express genuine opinions is the most important issue of my career and the most important issue in British society.”

ITV sources have said Morgan will “ continue making programs for the channel, ” it said iNews

This likely includes his popular celebrity interview program, Life Stories, which has been on the air since 2009.

Since Piers’ departure from the show, he has received messages from several stars, citing Jeremy Clarkson and Bear Grylls, saying he had the ‘right’ to voice his opinion.

Sharon Osbourne also expressed support for Piers during a performance on The Talk, although she has since retired from the CBS show.
