Piers Morgan insists 17 of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's claims from Oprah interview were lies

Piers Morgan has continued his attack against Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, insisting that 17 claims made from the couple in their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey were lies. 

Speaking to Tucker Carlson for FOX Nation , Morgan said he "still didn't believe" anything Meghan said during the special - including revelations she was refused help when suicidal and had been subjected to racist questions about her son's skin colour by the Royal Family. 

Morgan's assertion that the Duchess of Sussex was a "contemptible" liar who "he wouldn't believe if she was reading the weather report" saw him leave his role on ITV's Good Morning Britain after he refused to apologise. 

"I went on air on Monday morning with full bells on and said quite clearly that I didn't believe what Meghan Markle was saying. Here we are a month later and frankly, I've had plenty of time to think about this - I still don't believe any of what they were saying," Morgan told Carlson. 

"Seventeen different claims by the pair of them have now been proven to be either completely untrue, or massively exaggerated, or unprovable. I don't understand why I should have to believe people who are not telling the truth." 

Morgan called Harry and Meghan's interview "the most extraordinarily disingenuous smear, hit job, on the Royal family, on the Queen, on the monarchy, and frankly on Britain". 

Elsewhere in the interview, Morgan dubbed Meghan a "delusional duchess who wants to make millions off the royals while trashing the family", and complained that the backlash his comments received was an impingement on his freedom of speech. 

'What happened to me is happening all over Britain and America - I can take it, but there are many people who don't have our platform who are being wiped out, lives destroyed, careers ended over the most ridiculous things."

'It's got to stop."
