What did Piers Morgan say about Meghan Markle?

And on Good Morning Britain today (Wednesday, November 25), presenter Piers joined his co-host Susanna Reid in sending love to the former senior royal as they reported on the announcement.

Susanna said she thought Meghan’s article would “provide some comfort” to others who have found themselves in a similar situation.

Speaking further, Susanna said it’s good when “somebody so high profile speaks out about something that is very difficult to talk about.”

A third put: “I’m not buying Piers’ fake concern.”

A fifth said: “Piers Morgan can [bleep] off sitting there talking about Meghan Markle and her miscarriage after his relentless campaign [against her].”

“[Is] Piers Morgan really talking about Meghan’s trauma?” said another, adding: “Really? The sheer nerve.”

Another said on Twitter: “@piersmorgan and @susannareid100 pretending to have sympathy for Meghan Markle after roasting her and Harry religiously on a daily basis, @GMB are a disgrace for allowing that much hypocritical content on their show.”
