Piers Morgan, one of Britain’s harshest critics of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, resigned as co-host of “Good Morning Britain” television show, ITV announced Tuesday, following a flood of complaints to a British media watchdog.
On Monday morning’s broadcast, Morgan said he “didn’t believe a word” Meghan told Oprah Winfrey in her interview alleging mistreatment by Buckingham Palace, specifically her assertion that she felt suicidal and was offered no help.
Morgan also questioned whether the comments made about the skin color of biracial Meghan’s unborn child were necessarily racist.
He stormed off the set Tuesday — and quickly returned — after a colleague challenged Morgan over why he seemed to always “trash” Meghan.
An ITV spokesperson said: “Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain. ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add.”
