Piers Morgan can’t seem to let go of remarks made by Meghan Markle, according to Fox News.
“I don’t believe a word she says,” Morgan said during an interview with Karl Stefanovic.
“We called the archbishop and we just said, look, this thing, this spectacle is for the world, but we want our union between us,” Markle said during the interview with Oprah Winfrey as a follow-up comment describing events that led up to their wedding.
“So the vows that we have framed in our room are just the two of us in our backyard with the archbishop of Canterbury.”
Morgan pointed out that the archbishop of Canterbury legally married the couple at Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018.
“I signed the wedding certificate, which is a legal document, and I would have committed a serious criminal offence if I signed it knowing it was false,” said the head of the Church of England.
“They were downright lies,” Morgan said.
“That [ceremony] would make the archbishop of Canterbury a criminal.”
From Fox News:
Stefanovic branded Morgan “just an angry old man.”
Stefanovic has previously defended the duchess, slamming Morgan for his ongoing attacks towards the couple.
“I’ve got something to say about that,” said the 46-year-old in 2018, as quoted by U.K.’s DailyMail. “I think that’s disgraceful. I think she is an amazing, amazing woman. I think she is doing her very best at the moment, and she’s got a lot on her plate. She’s doing it so beautifully. She’s such a great export for Great Britain.”

“I mean, what is that guy on?” he said about Morgan. “He’s lost the plot completely. I don’t know how his poor co-host puts up with it. Imagine putting up with a dude like that who is so up himself and so egotistical that he would assume to say those things about her.”
“It’s disgusting,” he continued. “You wouldn’t put up with it. He needs to go. He’s off the mark here.”
A rep for the duchess didn’t immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
In March, Markle complained to Britain’s ITV about Morgan’s statements concerning her interview with Winfrey, the channel’s news operation reported.
