Piers Morgan has insisted that Meghan Markle’s claims about her experiences with the royal family are ‘impossible to believe’.
In an interview with Fox News, his first since quitting Good Morning Britain last month, the presenter said he doesn’t ‘understand why I should have to believe people who are not telling the truth.’
He went on: ‘Seventeen different claims by the pair of them have now been proven to be either completely untrue or massively exaggerated or unprovable.
‘I don’t understand why I should have to believe people who are not telling the truth.’
He told presenter Tucker Carlson he was sceptical about the Duchess’ claims as he didn’t think she would have been told she was ‘not allowed to get help’ when she was struggling.
Piers added that her husband Prince Harry would have stepped in as he has been so outspoken about mental health.

‘He makes no secret of his desire that everyone who feels depressed or anxious or has suicidal thoughts to get immediate help, and yet here was his wife who says she was feeling constantly suicidal, and Prince Harry never sought to get her help. And I find that very hard to believe frankly,’ he said.
In the same interview he claimed that he ‘wasn’t allowed an opinion’ on the royal couple.
The Life Stories host shared: ‘I didn’t believe Meghan Markle. A huge furore erupted throughout the day. I was an outrage.
‘I wasn’t allowed to have an opinion that I didn’t believe what she was saying, even though it was clear to me in real-time, as I was watching the interview that there were a number of things which just couldn’t be true.’
Piers comments about Meghan on Good Morning Britain sparked a record number of Ofcom complaints and led to an on-air clash with weather presenter Alex Beresford, that ended with the host storming off set – something he now regrets.
