Piers Morgan has faced a lot of backlash lately for taking a stand against Meghan Markle but if his claims are to be believed, the backlashes were public and the support was private.
Few days after storming out of the Good Morning Britain studio, Morgan claimed he received messages on behalf of the royal family thanking him for “standing up” to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
And now he is making fresh claims that Prince Andrew’s ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, sent him a message of support when he resigned from “Good Morning Britain” over his comments about Meghan Markle, that some find inappropriate.
The former ITV host wrote in a column that the Duchess of York told him to “get back out there” in a text a month after he refused to apologize to the Duchess of Sussex.
Morgan, 56, has claimed that “several members of the royal family” had reached out to him after he called out Markle and Prince Harry for their bombshell claims in their sit-down with Oprah Winfrey, the US Sun reported.
In his column for the Mail on Sunday, Morgan said Ferguson, who also is known as Fergie, was among the royals who supported him.
“Not all Royal duchesses were as thrilled as Meghan ‘Pinocchio’ Markle to see me leave GMB,” he wrote. “‘People have said how much they miss your morning joy and humour,’ texted Sarah, Duchess of York, ‘get back out there!'”
Morgan also joked about possibly teaming up with Fergie to host a new show together.
“Perhaps we should start a new breakfast show together… ‘Morgy and Fergie in the Morning’, anyone?” he wrote.
Markle has filed a formal complaint about the TV firebrand over his outbursts on hosting “Good Morning Britain.”
He stormed off the set in March after his co-star Alex Beresford called him out for continuing to “trash” Markle following her interview with husband Prince Harry hosted by Oprah Winfrey.
According to sources, Meghan is not backing off and they are working to use a strong legal team against Piers Morgan and his rant day after the Oprah Meghan interview that went viral.
