Piers Morgan, 56, quit his role on Good Morning Britain in March after he refused to apologise for comments he made about Meghan Markle, 40. The broadcaster has since reacted to BBC Two’s documentary The Princes and Press, which focuses on Prince Harry and Prince William’s relationship with the media.

The programme also charted the years leading up to and including the engagement and marriage of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Taking to Twitter today, Piers reacted to Meghan’s lawyer who addressed particular claims about the royals during the programme.

He retweeted an article that read: “Meghan’s lawyer denies the Duchess of Sussex ever bullied staff in bombshell BBC documentary,” in view of his 7.9 million followers.

During the programme, Schillings lawyer, Jenny Afia, told host Amol Rajan there were “massive inaccuracies” in the story, in regard to claims Meghan had bullied staff.

But the legal professional added she didn’t want to “negate other people’s personal experiences”.

Piers suggested that the same claim made was the reason behind him no longer being a part of GMB.

He tweeted: “Reminder: denying someone’s ‘lived experience’ of being mistreated was why I had to leave @GMB.”

Piers left the news programme following a row over comments he made about the Duchess of Sussex.

The broadcaster said he “didn’t believe a word” Meghan had said during her on-air interview with Oprah Winfrey.

It brought Piers’ time on the show to an end after six years working alongside his co-host Susanna Reid.

ITV announced the decision after Ofcom said it was investigating his comments after receiving 41,000 complaints.

A 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.”

Meanwhile, Ms Afia went into more detail about claims of bullying, which she adamantly denied.

She said: “Massive, massive inaccuracies in that story

“The overall allegation was that the Duchess of Sussex was guilty of bullying. Absolutely not.”

Ms Afia went on: “I think the first thing is, is to be really clear about what bullying is.

“What bullying actually means is improperly using power, repeatedly and deliberately to hurt someone physically or emotionally.

“The Duchess of Sussex has absolutely denied doing that, that said she wouldn’t want to negate anyone’s personal experiences.”

In part two of The Princes and Press, Amol – the BBC’s media editor – examined the period from 2018 to 2021, a tumultuous time for the royals that included the birth of Archie Mountbatten-Windsor and the royal tours of the Sussexes and the Cambridges.

He also looked at the circumstances surrounding the Sussexes’ decision to step down from senior royal roles.
