Who knew they were besties? Piers Morgan says that the British Royal Family has apparently reached out to him to personally thank him for standing up for them after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle seemingly threw the royals under the bus in their explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey last month. Here’s what you need to know.
Even though Piers has gotten the boot from his job at Good Morning Britain for refusing to apologize to Meghan Markle for not believing any of her mental health claims, he says that he’s gotten a lot of support, from places far and wide, big and small.
Piers Morgan Says The Royal Family Personally Thanked Him For Standing Up For Them
Piers says he “had a lot of support privately from a lot of people” — including the royals he has vigorously defended, he told Extra.
“I’ve had some messages communicated to me on behalf of several members of the royal family who were grateful … that somebody was standing up for them,” the 56-year-old former “America’s Got Talent” judge said.
When asked if they included messages from “upper-level people,” saying, “Well, I’m not going to go into who it was.”
Meanwhile, Piers also said that a troll threatened to murder him over his comments about Meghan Markle.
In a lengthy piece for the Mail on Sunday, Piers – who was forced to walk away from his job at Good Morning Britain – says that a sick troll threated to murder him in front of his three sons after he accused Meghan Markle of lying during her interview with Oprah earlier this month.
However, Piers believes that the threats were part of a “clearly orchestrated social media pile-on.”
“One troll vowed to murder me in front of them, and added: ‘When your dad dies, the world will have a party,’” he recalled.
