Piers Morgan ― who on Monday in his latest in a long line of attacks on Meghan Markle dismissed her allegations of racist treatment at the hands of the British royal family ― stormed off the set of his own show, “Good Morning Britain,” on Tuesday after being called out by colleague Alex Beresford for his relentless criticism of the Duchess of Sussex.
“OK. I’m done with this. Sorry. No. Sorry. You can trash me mate but not on my own show,” Morgan told Beresford as he walked away.
Beresford, commenting on the bombshell revelations from Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey and criticizing Morgan’s subsequent attacks on the couple, had noted how the couple had dealt with “an overwhelming amount of negative press” in recent years that had been “incredibly damaging” to their mental health.
“I hear Piers say William has gone through the same thing but do you know what, siblings experience tragedy in their life and one will be absolutely fine and brush it off and the other will not be able to deal with it so strongly and that is clearly what has happened with Prince Harry in this situation,” said the “GMB” weather forecaster.
“He walked behind his mother’s coffin at a tender, tender age in front of the globe. That is going to shape a young boy for the rest of his life,” continued Beresford. “So I think that we all need to take a step back.”
