Did Piers Morgan Call Meghan Markle a Cunt?

Written by Mike Rickard II

Did BBC news personality and journalist Piers Morgan call Meghan Markle a cunt? That’s the question I’m trying to find the answer to after the latest criticism of Morgan concerning his recent comments on Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah.

In case you missed it, Meghan gave tense testimony about what she endured when she was living in the UK with her husband Harry, including a claim that there were concerns indirectly related to her by the Royals about what color her baby Archie would be.

During the March 8, 2021 episode of Good Morning Britain, Piers commented on Ms. Markle’s interview. According to an online article from Good Morning America

The episode in question featured Morgan saying “I’m sorry, I don’t believe a word she said” after a clip aired of the duchess discussing her mental health struggles — including suicidal thoughts — with Winfrey. He added, “I wouldn’t believe it if she read me a weather report.”

This led to Piers’ co-host Alex Beresford calling Morgan out, with TMZ reporting:

Beresford made the point that aside from their wedding day, Meg and Harry haven’t much good press at all in the UK — and he suggested Piers played a big part in that.

That was just the warm-up for Beresford’s apparent coup-de-grace:

Then came the crucial blow that forced Piers’ hand — Beresford seemed to spill some insider info … saying he knew Piers had been pals with Meghan once upon a time, but that at one point or another … she cut him off. Beresford implies that’s why Piers is always trashing her.

Here’s video of Piers taking a powder:

ITV issued a statement concerning Morgan’s status with Good Morning Britain.

Morgan tweeted a response about the incident on Wednesday:

Looking at the story, there’s no evidence that Piers Morgan called Meghan Markle a cunt on-air (or even whispered it under his breath). While there’s clearly some animosity towards her, it’s unknown if it’s due to personal reasons such as Alex Beresford seemed to imply or because Piers thinks Meghan has the credibility of a con artist. This is one situation that doesn’t seem to be going away soon. Will Morgan become the latest victim of cancel culture and if he does, should he go all in and call Ms. Markle the dreaded c-word? Be sure to leave your comments for me.
