Susanna Reid hit back at Piers Morgan as he took a swipe at the Duchess of Sussex.
Piers jokingly suggested that the couple should call their son after him as he believes “Prince Piers” has a “ring to it”.
The presenter, 54, was given odds of 100/1 that Baby Sussex will be called Piers.
He joked: “100/1, I like that. That might be [Meghan’s] way of making up to me for ghosting me. Prince Piers has got a certain ring to it.”
Susanna sat there shaking her head, before hitting back: “Can we just let go of the fact that just because you went out for a drink with her, she didn’t have to become your best friend.
“You just need to let that go.”
Piers cut in: “You can have your view but you weren’t involved.”
Susanna quipped: “Well, she wasn’t involved for very long, was she?”
Piers said: “Well, I thought we were quite good friends for like a-year-and-a-half actually. I merely raise a little flag of caution.”
Susanna hit back: “No, today there are no flags of caution,” to which Piers interrupted, saying: “You mentioned it.”
Susanna said: “You mentioned the ghosting! I’m saying, can we just let that go?”
Piers added: “Prince Piers would be a nice way to get over things and bring us all back together.”
The cheeky broadcaster has often joked about how his blossoming friendship with Meghan fizzled out when she began dating Harry.
Piers and Meghan famously began chatting over Twitter way before she met Harry, and Piers has said Meghan used to send him preview episodes of her US TV show Suits.
They later met up for a drink in London when Meghan was over visiting the UK, but Piers said she stopped communicating with him after that.
Meanwhile, Meghan and Harry welcomed their first child, a baby boy, on Monday.
