Piers Morgan, 56, has taken to Twitter to insist that he “still” doesn’t believe what Meghan Markle, 40, says following his explosive exit from Good Morning Britain earlier this year over a row about the Duchess of Sussex’s Oprah Winfrey interview. The presenter shared several newspaper clippings from today addressing reports that Meghan has now apologised for “misleading” the courts over her recollection of information given by her aides to the writer of an unauthorised biography, Finding Freedom, which is based on her and her husband Prince Harry, 37.

Alongside the newspaper front pages, Piers wrote in view of his 7.9 million followers this morning: “I’ve now had 8 months to carefully reflect on my statement that I don’t believe a word Meghan Markle says…. 

“…. and I still don’t.”

Twitter users took to the comments section of Piers’ post after he doubled down on his initial statement, which was issued following his decision to quit his role on GMB.

Twitter user Tickety Boo wrote: “Kudos to you Piers! This has validated everything you and others have said about her.”

Sharon added: “And after this breaking news, no-one else will.”

Darren Watts commented: “I think it is time to start a campaign for ‘Misleading Meg’ to make a public apology to @piersmorgan.”

However, others disagreed with Piers’ comments, with UnitedboyIndia writing: “You are obsessed mate.”

Benedict Cole agreed: “This is not a good look Piers.”

 

Joe Little commented: “Oh God here we go again this man is dangerously obsessed with this lady!”

It comes after Meghan admitted in a written apology that her PR chief was told to brief Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, who wrote Finding Freedom, despite issuing a public statement last summer that claimed she and Prince Harry “did not contribute” to the book. 

Meghan claimed in court submissions on Wednesday that the oversight was an accident.

The court heard that the former Suits star had previously emailed Jason Knauf, her former communications secretary, a detailed note on December 10, 2018, which included some “helpful” background “reminders” about her estranged family.
