Piers Morgan says that seventeen of Meghan and Harry's claims during Oprah interview have been proven to be false

PIERS MORGAN has hit out at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex saying he was right not to believe any of the claims they made during their interview with Oprah Winfrey last month.

In his first television appearance since he was forced to quit Good Morning Britain (GMB), Morgan spoke with Fox News' Tucker Carlson, where he renewed his fierce criticisms of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The 56-year-old said that 17 claims made by the couple during their Oprah interview have now been proven false, exaggerated or are simply unverifiable.

He also urged people to stand up against what he described as the "woke cancel culture mob" that drove him as well as the likes of Sharon Osbourne from their jobs in recent weeks.

Speaking to Carlson on Fox Nation on Monday, Morgan said since he left GMB he's only become more convinced that Meghan is "completely delusional".

"What I was witnessing was the most extraordinarily disingenuous smear, hit job, on the Royal Family, on the Queen, on the Monarchy, and frankly on Britain, my country," Morgan said.

"I went on air on Monday morning with full bells on and said quite clearly that I didn't believe what Meghan Markle was saying. Here we are a month later and frankly, I've had plenty of time to think about this - I still don't believe any of what they were saying.

"17 different claims by the pair of them have now been proven to be either completely untrue, or massively exaggerated, or un-provable. I don't understand why I should have to believe people who are not telling the truth."

Morgan also slammed Meghan for leading a "woke mob" that branded him and anyone who disagreed with her 'racist', and effectively demanding they conform or lose their livelihoods.

It's understood that Markle herself contacted ITV as well as Ofcom to complain about Morgan after he said he "didn't believe a word" she said following her Oprah interview. Morgan was subsequently told to apologise, but he refused and quit his job instead.

"It was Meghan's way and Meghan's truth," he said. "I was under attack from Ms Markle to conform to her version of events and I had to believe her and if I didn't I was a callous racist who should be condemned and later, lose my job. I think that's a pretty perilous slope.

"I should be able to be a journalist and question the veracity of her statements.

"I should be allowed to say: 'I don't believe you'. But I wasn't allowed to do that."
