Piers Morgan, 56, has frequently scrutinised Meghan Markle, 40, and her husband Prince Harry, 37, in recent years. The former Good Morning Britain presenter has openly addressed the Duke and Duchess’ decision to step down from the Royal Family to their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Writing in his latest column, Piers has delved into his biggest moments over the years for his self-titled All-Time Morgan Awards.
The outspoken journalist has previously claimed that he and Meghan had been on good terms.
In January 2020, Piers shared an alleged message from Meghan to him on his Twitter page from 2015.
The news anchor has since suggested that the direct message had been a highlight for him.
“When I followed four cast members of U.S. TV legal drama Suits on Twitter, one of them sent me a private direct message minutes later,” he wrote in the Daily Mail.
He continued: “It read: ‘Well hello there — thanks for the follow. Big fan of yours!’
“Suffice it to say, I don’t think Meghan Markle remains quite such a big fan.”
Back in March, Piers dramatically quit GMB after an on-air row about the Duchess of Sussex.
At the time ITV released a statement to confirm that he had left the breakfast show.
The statement read: “Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain.
“ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add.”
The TV host got into a heated argument about the Duchess of Sussex’s claims to have had issues with her mental health.

A day after he quit Piers tweeted that “freedom of speech is a hill I’m happy to die on”.
He also quoted Sir Winston Churchill referencing free speech and signed off by writing: “I’m off to spend more time with my opinions.”
Piers joined GMB as a permanent host in November 2015.
Meanwhile, the presenter has since announced his latest move with News UK.
He will host a new show that will air in the US, UK and Australia – his first major new presenting job since leaving ITV’s Good Morning Britain in March.
“Piers is the broadcaster every channel wants but is too afraid to hire,” Rupert Murdoch said in a statement.
The show will air on the newly-announced talkTV in the UK, Fox Nation in the US, and Sky News Australia.
Piers said he was “thrilled” to return to News Corp, where he began his media career more than 30 years ago.
