Piers Morgan blasts Meghan Markle's 'disgraceful race slur' and says she's 'effectively branded the Queen a racist'

PIERS Morgan has claimed that Meghan Markle ‘effectively branded the Queen a racist’ with a “disgraceful slur” during her bombshell Oprah interview.  

The GMB presenter, 55, took aim at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex following their explosive chat with Oprah Winfrey, which aired in the US last night.

Meghan made a series of astonishing revelations about her life before stepping down as a working royal in the two-hour CBS broadcast.

During the interview, Meghan said there had been conversations with Prince Harry and a "family" member about their unborn son and what colour his skin would be – and "what that would mean or look like".

Reacting to the allegations, furious Piers wrote in MailOnline: “No name was given for the appalling racist at the Palace responsible for such a disgusting discriminatory decision.

“But, as Meghan and Harry both know, the only person who has final say over titles is the Queen.

“So, in making this astonishing, unproven claim, they’re effectively branding her Majesty, Harry’s grandmother, a racist.

“It's hard to think of a more disgraceful slur to make against a woman who has devoted her whole life to the service of her country and the Commonwealth.

“The Queen is not a racist and has never been a racist.”

It comes as…

  • Meghan broke down as she revealed 'I didn't want to live anymore'
  • Meghan claimed Kate made HER cry in row over flower girl dress
  • Harry and Meghan married three days before their wedding at Windsor Castle
  • Pregnant Meghan revealed she is expecting a GIRL
  • The 39-year-old told Oprah the Queen was 'always wonderful to me'
  • Prince Harry said his brother is 'trapped' in the Royal Family
  • A body language expert revealed Harry 'suppressed anger' when talking about being hurt by his family
  • Meghan was apparently left gutted when the Queen would not let her and Harry live in a wing at Windsor Castle
  • Archie's favourite word is 'hydrate' the proud parents revealed

It came after the ITV star unleashed a furious rant on GMB this morning, saying he was “sickened” by the interview. 

Piers added: “This is a two-hour 'trashathon' of our Royal Family, the monarchy and everything the Queen has worked hard for, done while Prince Philip lies in hospital.

“They basically make out they are a bunch of white supremacists by dropping a racist bombshell.”

Oprah Winfrey confirmed to CBS This Morning that it was not the Queen or the Duke of Edinburgh who made the alleged racist comment – according to Harry.

She said: "He did not share the identity with me but he wanted to make sure I knew, and if I had an opportunity to share it, that it was not his grandmother or grandfather that were part of those conversations.

"He did not tell me who was a part of those conversations."  

During the bombshell interview, Meghan broke down in tears as she revealed she told Prince Harry she "didn’t want to be alive anymore".

The Duchess said she begged for help from the Firm after struggling with her mental health – saying it was her husband who "saved" her.

Meghan told Oprah she had contemplated taking her own life at the height of her crisis with the monarchy.

The interview has divided opinion, with a string of celebrities and politicians leaping to the couple's defence.

Serena Williams hailed her pal Meghan as “selfless” after she revealed the “pain and cruelty” of her experiences.

She wrote: “Meghan Markle, my selfless friend, lives her life – and leads by example – with empathy and compassion."

Poet Amanda Gorman, who performed at Joe Biden's inauguration, wrote: "This isn't Meghan's princess 'happy' ending.

"But sometimes change, the decisions that bring us the most hurt, aren't about happiness, but healing."

The bombshell revelations come amid fears Meghan may never return to Britain after the chat.
