Following Meghan Markle’s bombshell interview with Oprah, Piers Morgan didn’t hold back in vocalizing his views on some of her more eyebrow-raising claims.
During the interview, Markle told Oprah that certain royals were worried about how dark her son Archie’s skin would be–but would not reveal who said that. She also complained that the royal family would not let Archie become a prince, implying that it was because of his race.
She said, “And growing up as a woman of color, as a little girl of color, I know how important representation is. I know how you want to see someone who looks like you in certain positions. And I could never understand how it wouldn’t be seen as an added benefit — and a reflection of the world today. At all times, but especially right now, to go — how inclusive is that, that you can see someone who looks like you in this family, much less one who’s born into it?”
Morgan joined Fox & Friends on Monday morning, and called the accusation “despicable,” calling her a liar.
“I wouldn’t believe Meghan Markle if she gave me a weather report, honestly,” Morgan said. “I think it was the acting performance of her life, it was designed to portray her the ultimate victim. She even at one stage says that being imprisoned in a palace was somehow similar to what people are experiencing in the pandemic lockdown. Well, tell that to people living at the top of high rise buildings with three kids, trying to home school them with no job to pay for food on the table.”
He continued, “The inferences in this interview, that the royal family is harboring racists, and in particular that one of them may be the Queen because Megan Markle lies, frankly, there is no other word for it. It’s an absolutely outrageous lie and the only person that decides titles like princes is the Queen. So she is directly inferring the Queen is a racist.”
The interview can be viewed in full on the Fox News website.
