On Tuesday morning, Piers Morgan walked off the set of Good Morning Britain, following a row with his co-star, Alex Beresford.
The pair had been discussing the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s interview with Oprah, when Alex explained: “I understand that you don’t like Meghan Markle, you’ve made it so clear a number of times on this programme.
“And I understand that you’ve got a personal relationship with Meghan Markle, or had one before she cut you off, she’s entitled to cut you off if she wants to. Has she said anything about you since then? I don’t think she has, but you continue to trash her.”
Piers abruptly stood up and walked off, following this statement.
Piers said, “I’m done with this, sorry,” as Alex told him: “You know what, that’s pathetic… This is diabolical behaviour. I’m sorry but Piers spouts off on a regular basis and we all have to sit here and listen. [Yesterday’s episode] was incredibly hard to watch.”
Alex and Piers had been discussing Meghan’s revelation to Oprah that a royal member had discussed the colour of Archie’s skin, with the TV personality asking: “Do you know how much courage it takes to speak about racism to call this out?”
He added: “I’ve been in situations where I haven’t called out every bit of racism that has happened to me… you’re worried about a backlash. There will be people who will treat Harry and Meghan differently because they have spoken out. We’ve got to get comfortable with the uncomfortable.”
