According to Piers Morgan, Meghan Markle was perfectly nice: In a recent interview, Piers Morgan shared his thoughts on Meghan Markle and his departure from Good Morning Britain in 2021. The whole situation revolves around his comments on Meghan’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Looking back after three years, Morgan spoke about Meghan as a “perfectly nice” person and praised her performance in Suits. He recalled, “I got on well with Meghan before she met Harry. I thought she was nice. I liked Suits; she was good in it.”
During a recent interview with Charlamagne The God and DJ Envy, Morgan was playfully asked if he still watches Suits. He responded with enthusiasm, saying, “Yes, I love Suits.”

Morgan clarified that his criticism of Meghan wasn’t about her background or skin color. Instead, he believed her claims about the Firm dismissing her mental health struggles had harmed the Royal Family’s reputation.
In 2021, Morgan expressed skepticism about Meghan’s statements on experiencing suicidal thoughts while in the UK. This sparked controversy and drew attention from mental health charities and Ofcom.
When asked to apologize by senior executives, Morgan chose to leave the morning show after six years. ITV confirmed his departure, stating, “Piers Morgan has decided to leave Good Morning Britain. ITV respects this decision.”
Meghan lodged a complaint with ITV, contacting CEO Carolyn McCall. Morgan later revealed that had he known about Meghan’s complaint, he might not have resigned from GMB.
Responding to social media accusations of being “obsessed” with Meghan, Morgan clarified in 2022, “All the trolls saying I criticize Meghan because I ‘fancied’ her and got upset when she ghosted me… have reminded me that I forgot to wish my wife Celia a happy birthday yesterday. (And yes, she knows she lucked out….”
Last year, Morgan expressed his desire for an interview with both Meghan and Harry.
