It was news as usual at U.K. broadcaster ITV’s breakfast show “Good Morning Britain” on Wednesday, as former presenter Piers Morgan stood by his disbelief of Meghan Markle’s statements.
“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. Freedom of speech is a hill I’m happy to die on. Thanks for all the love, and hate. I’m off to spend more time with my opinions,” Morgan tweeted on Wednesday, adding a quote by pugnacious former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.
“Good Morning Britain” began at 6am local time on Wednesday, presented by Ranvir Singh, who led with the news of the Queen finally breaking her silence over the explosive interview given by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to Oprah Winfrey that was first broadcast on CBS in the U.S. on Sunday.
Singh began the show saying, “I know what’s on your mind, we’ll get to it,” adding that Morgan’s regular co-host Susanna Reid would be joining at 6.30am. Reid joined on the dot and began by saying, “A number of people of course will know the news and many of you will not, and will be surprised, that Piers Morgan is not here this morning. Now Piers and I have disagreed on many things. And that dynamic was one of the things that viewers loved about the program.about:blank
