Piers Morgan admits he's taken Meghan Markle comments 'too far'
Piers Morgan revealed he has ‘probably’ taken his comments on Meghan Markle ‘too far’.
The Good Morning Britain host has made his feelings about the Duchess of Sussex more than clear in scathing rants on the ITV series, as well as on social media.
Just last month, the 55-year-old branded the Suits actress and Prince Harry ‘whiny little brats’ for their decision to adopt a ‘zero engagement’ policy with four UK newspaper groups.
However, he touched on his behaviour in a candid interview, explaining he might change how he discusses the Royal couple in the future.
When asked if he would have ‘dialled’ his criticisms against the 38-year-old ‘down’ in hindsight – after claiming she ghosted their former friendship – he replied: ‘Yeah, probably.
‘It’s probably not wise, if you’re a columnist, to make things too personal.
‘Have I taken things a bit too far? Probably,’ he added to the Sunday Times. ‘Do I think that will govern and temper how I talk about them going forward? Absolutely.’
Piers has previously been accused of having a ‘personal vendetta’ against Meghan, whom he previously enjoyed a brief friendship with.
He has had many debates over her relationship with Prince Harry, as well as their decision to leave the UK for Canada, before heading to the US.
‘I think what they did to The Queen is disgusting, I really do,’ the journalist fumed on an instalment of GMB at the beginning of the year.
‘I’m even more disgusted that The Queen has felt compelled to roll over and accept this.
‘They’re now going to have a half in half out, where they probably won’t even live in this country most of the time, but they’re still going to want to have the protection of the royal protection officers at the cost of the taxpayer.’
However, Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu locked horns with Piers over his thoughts during one episode.
‘Let me tell you what’s so offensive about this Piers, especially with you,’ she hit back.
‘You are a man, privileged to have power and influence and you are using your platform so irresponsibly to spout out this personal vendetta with nasty and vile comments knowing fully well that your words are containing bigotry, misogyny, sexism and racism.
‘You don’t take responsibility for how you have contributed to the so-called royal crisis.’
