‘No racism whatsoever’: Piers Morgan rages at guest in explosive Meghan Markle rowPIERS MORGAN locked horns with a TalkTV guest as he claimed Meghan Markle received “no racism” from the British media before she married Prince Harry.
The outspoken journalist clashed with lawyer Paula Rhone-Adrien on his TalkTV programme Piers Morgan: Uncensored over the way the UK press has treated the Duchess of Sussex. As they discussed allegations of racist bullying, Piers remained adamant Meghan Markle received “no racism whatsoever” before she walked down the aisle with Prince Harry.Piers began: “There was no racism whatsoever towards Meghan Markle before that wedding from the press in this country. None. Nada. Zero.”His guest clapped back at Piers, telling him he “did not know that” as the debate heated up.She fumed: “You can’t say that, because you don’t know what existed for her and what she’s saying and what Harry is saying, because I notice that we’re focusing on Meghan, but Harry is part of this as well.”Piers later claimed Harry and Meghan were “both as bad as each other”. He highlighted the couple’s infamous television interview with Oprah Winfrey which sent shockwaves around the globe last year.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex opened up to Oprah about their time in the Royal Family during the tell-all interview. They alleged unnamed members of the family had “concerns and conversations” about how “dark” the colour of their son Archie’s skin would be.

He added during Wednesday’s instalment of his show: “If all they did was tell the truth, that’s one thing. But 17 statements from the Oprah interview alone have proven to be untrue, we still don’t know who this supposed royal was who raised concern over their child’s skin colour.”Piers notoriously left his presenting role on Good Morning Britain following a row live on air with co-star Alex Beresford over Meghan’s claims. The journalist recently took aim at Oprah after the American interviewer said she hoped the Royal Family could heal their rift following the Queen’s death.She revealed to Gayle King on CBS she never set out to have a “bombshell interview” with the couple.
Piers was not convinced by Oprah’s comments and took to Twitter to criticise her to his millions of followers. He fumed: “Great to see Oprah Winfrey call for healing of massive rifts in the Royal Family – that she enabled.”Meghan has put her podcast, Archetypes, on hold as the Royal Family continues to mourn the loss of the Queen and Harry’s memoir could now be released later than planned as a mark of respect. Harry and Meghan have remained in the UK following the announcement of the 96-year-old monarch’s death last Thursday. They have been pictured with Prince William and Kate Middleton greeting mourners outside Windsor Castle as well as inside Westminster Hall as part of the Queen’s lying in state procession. Meghan, 41, was visibly emotional during the service on Wednesday. The Queen’s funeral is taking place on Monday at Westminster Abbey.

Nigel Farage Insists Nobody in ‘History’ Has ‘Done More for People of Color Than the British Royal Family’There are wild and delusional claims, and then there’s what Nigel Farage tossed out during a Newsmax appearance on Wednesday night.Continuing his full-fledged attack against Meghan Markle following her explosive Oprah Winfrey interview, the former Brexit Party leader declared to Newsmax host Greg Kelly that “nobody in the world, in history, has done more for people of color than the British royal family.
Markle, as you may recall, told Winfrey that someone within the royal family expressed concerns about the potential darkness of her then-unborn son’s skin, suggesting racism was at the root of the remarks. Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, also said she had contemplated suicide yet received no support from the palace over her mental health issues.“I don’t for one moment want to downplay the importance of mental health as an issue, but equally we cannot have people claiming mental health issues as a means of closing down debate,” Farage said at one point. “She looked very in control of the interview to me.”After blasting Markle and her husband Prince Harry for “trashing the U.K’s reputation in the world” with their interview, Farage went on to then take issue with the couple’s allegations of racism by the palace.“The Queen and the royal family have spent the last seventy years touring around the commonwealth,” the politician turned pundit stated. “The vast majority of those people are Black and Asian.”He continued: “I would put it to you that nobody in the world, in history, has done more for people of color than the British royal family.
”Apparently, per Farage’s description, the British Empire’s long history of brutal colonialism and slavery should be seen as a positive by people of color the world over, especially in those countries that Britain occupied.Farage’s remarks quickly went viral on social media, with observers and critics taking the conservative British leader to task for seemingly saying Black and Asian people should be thankful for being colonized and enslaved.
