Nearly a month after their bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview, Meghan and Harry continue to sizzle under the spotlight. Piers Morgan, who left Good Morning Britain following pushback against his criticism of the couple this week reinforced his disbelief about many of their claims. In his first TV interview since quitting GMB, he told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson: “I still don’t believe what they were saying, and in particular, I don’t believe what Meghan Markle was saying.

“17 different claims by the pair of them have now been proven to be either completely untrue, or massively exaggerated, or unprovable.”

The interview saw Meghan and Harry aim several allegations at the Royal Family, including on race and mental health.

It was the last in a long list of public outpourings made by the couple, the very first being Harry’s request to the media at the beginning of their relationship.

An unprecedented move, the royal issued an official statement warning against intrusion into Meghan’s life.

It stunned much of the public and media, seemingly breaking from the royal tradition that the Queen Mother summarised: “Never complain, never explain.”

Tom Quinn, a royal author, told Channel 5’s documentary, ‘Meghan & Harry: Two Troubled Years’, that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex should have followed the Queen’s example and “simply say nothing”.

He said: “You cannot control the media.

“The Queen has managed to reach a position where she’s very rarely criticised because when she in the past has occasionally been criticised, she says nothing.

“It would be much better if Meghan and Harry simply said nothing.”

Part of the statement – written on Harry’s request – read: “Prince Harry is worried about Ms Markle’s safety and is deeply disappointed that he has not been able to protect her.

“It is not right that a few months into a relationship with him that Ms Markle should be subjected to such a storm.

“He knows commentators will say this is ‘the price she has to pay’ and that ‘this is all part of the game’.

“He strongly disagrees. This is not a game – it is her life and his.”

While the Royal Family continues to struggle to restore its image following the Oprah interview, Meghan and Harry have continued with their lives.

The Prince has been given two top jobs in the US’ Silicon Valley.

He will fulfil the role of ‘Chief Impact Officer’ at BetterUp, a mental health professional coaching, counselling, and mentorship company.

At the Aspen Institute, he has been appointed to the new Commission on Information Disorder, helping to combat what he described as an “avalanche of misinformation”.

This is all added to his and Meghan’s lucrative agreements with Netflix and Spotify to produce original content.

Their Archewell podcast for Spotify has only had one episode since it first aired in late December 2020.

Meanwhile, still outraged by what he felt was unfair treatment, Mr Morgan told Fox News that he was asked to believe Meghan’s side of the story.

He said: “I didn’t believe Meghan Markle. A huge fury erupted throughout the day.

“I was in outrage. I wasn’t allowed to have an opinion that I didn’t believe what she was saying, even though it was clear to me in real time as I was watching the interview that there were a number of things that couldn’t be true.

“I just find that impossible to believe that you would have two people in the palace who would be that callous to a woman telling them that she was suicidal.”

Critics of Mr Morgan say he has bad feelings after Meghan “dumped” him as a friend.

He admitted in 2018 that the Duchess had “ghosted” him after they met up for drinks on the same night she was introduced to Harry.
