Meghan replies: “I don’t know how they could expect that, after all of this time, we would still just be silent if there is an active role that the firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us.”

Piers Morgan hits out at Meghan

Meanwhile, following Meghan’s comments, Piers Morgan has shared his thoughts.

He wrote on Twitter: “Let’s be very clear: the new clip from Oprah’s whine-athon with the Sussexes shows Meghan Markle directly calling the Queen & Prince Philip liars.

“They are the heads of ‘The Firm’. And she’s done this as Philip lies seriously ill in hospital. It’s an absolute disgrace.”

Meanwhile, the interview will air on CBS in the United States this Sunday (March 7).

Meanwhile, UK viewers will get to watch the tell-all chat the following day on March 8.

ITV recently confirmed it won rights to air the interview.

Elsewhere, earlier this week, the first preview clip of the interview sparked reaction.

In it, the Duke of Sussex admitted their split from the royal family has been “unbelievably tough” for himself and Meghan.

He also referenced his mother, Princess Diana, who went through the same process.

In addition, he said: “You know for me, I’m just really relieved and happy to be sitting here, talking to you, with my wife by my side.

“Because I can’t begin to imagine what it must have been like for her [Princess Diana], going through this process by herself. All those years ago.”

Oprah with Meghan and Harry will air on ITV, Monday, March 8, at 9pm.
