Piers Morgan has taken a fresh swipe at Meghan Markle, explaining he still doesn't believe her claims from her tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey in March.

The Duchess of Sussex, 39, and her 36 year old husband Prince Harry joined the famed talk show host to speak about everything from their exit from the Royal Family to expecting their second child – a baby girl – together.

During the chat, Meghan claimed a senior member of the Royal Family raised "concerns" over the colour of their two year old son Archie's skin.

The former Suits actress also said she had suicidal thoughts and went to "the institution" to get help over her struggles, but she wasn't allowed to. As she broke down in tears, she told Oprah: "I just didn't see a solution. I didn't want to be alive anymore."


At the time, 56 year old Piers said he didn't believe many of her claims as he said: "On Monday, I said I didn’t believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview. I’ve had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don’t. If you did, OK."

Piers has since taken to his Twitter account to mark the start of Mental Health Awareness Week as he wrote: "To mark #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek, a quote I’ve always found helpful in tough times."

He then quoted Rocky Balboa as he wrote: "Going in one more round when you don’t think you can – that’s what makes all the difference in your life."

His support towards mental health and raising awareness around different illnesses that can affect people led one follower to ask him: "So now you believe in mental health?

"You thought it was all made up when Meghan Markle mentioned she struggled with hers [thinking emoji] B*****d".

To which Piers immediately quipped: "I believe in mental illness, I just don’t believe Meghan Markle. ps Please don’t call me “B*****d” – it’s bad for my mental health."

Piers' comment comes after he recently hit out at Meghan as she announced the release of a new children's book, The Bench, which was inspired by Prince Harry's bond with their son.

Writing in his latest Daily Mail column, Piers penned: "The whole notion of Meghan Markle dishing out advice to anyone about the relationship between fathers and children is absolutely ridiculous given the appalling relationships she and her husband have with their own fathers.

"Yet her brazen decision to do it anyway is so sadly typical of a woman whose tendency for staggering hypocrisy is only matched by her extraordinary tone-deafness.

The outspoken star continued: "If she really cared about father-child relationships, she’d take a chauffeur-driven limousine on the hour-long trip to see her own father who’s never even met either Harry or Archie.

"And if she really cared about father-child relationships, she would never have trashed Harry’s family on global TV in the horrible way that she did, causing yet more damage, possibly irreparably, to Harry’s relationship with his father."
