Piers Morgan accuses Meghan Markle of 'reinventing facts' and hits out at hypocrites who call Donald Trump a liar for doing same thing

PIERS MORGAN has stoked the flames of his feud with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex by accusing Meghan Markle of "reinventing facts" and her supporters of hypocrisy. 

Morgan took no prisoners during his recent interview with Fox Nation host Tucker Carlson, stressing once again that he didn't believe many of the claims Markle and her husband Prince Harry made during their interview with Oprah Winfrey last month.

He said that 17 of their claims had been proven to be untrue, severely exaggerated or are simply unverifiable, and asked why the world was expected to automatically believe every word they say.

Morgan also criticised the use of the term "Meghan's truth" - something Oprah alluded to during their interview - saying that it was simply a way for her to "reinvent facts".

He also criticised those who defended 'Meghan's truth', claiming those same people were likely the first to call Donald Trump a liar if he ever tried to reinvent the truth.

"I should be allowed to say, in a free democracy that values freedom of speech, I should be allowed to say 'I'm sorry, I don't believe you', but I wasn't," Morgan told Carlson.

"It was Meghan's way and Meghan's narrative and Meghan's truth, that phrase was actually used by Oprah Winfrey, 'this is your truth', what does that mean?

"This is the kind of thing we'd hear liberals attack Donald Trump for, for reinventing facts, for creating his own truth.

"But when Meghan Markle does it, the same liberals who attack Donald Trump cheer and applaud her, saying 'this is her truth, and it must be believed, and if you don't believe it you're a racist'."

The interview was Morgan's first since he left his position as host of Good Morning Britain.

It's understood that Markle contacted ITV to complain about Morgan following his claims that "didn't believe a word" she said following her chat with Oprah.

ITV asked Morgan to apologise for his remarks, but he refused and resigned instead.
