Piers Morgan unloaded on Gayle King for being a “PR mouthpiece” for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, following their bombshell interview with King’s close friend Oprah Winfrey.
Morgan tweeted Wednesday: “Hi @GayleKing – rather than acting as your Sussex friends’ PR mouthpiece to facilitate their ongoing public trashing of our Royal Family, how about doing your job as a journalist and ask them about all the lies they told in @Oprah’s interview? America should hear THE truth.”
His post came a day after King told viewers on CBS This Morning that Markle has the receipts to back up her claims. The network news anchor added that she spoke with Harry and Meghan over the weekend, before offering viewers a little hot tea.
“I did actually call them to see how they were feeling. And it’s true—Harry has talked to his brother, and he has talked to his father too. The word I was given was that those conversations were not productive, but they are glad they at least started a conversation,” King said on the morning show.

She also said no one in the royal family had reached out the Markle up to that point, following the tell-all interview.
“Meghan has documents to back up everything that she said on Oprah’s interview. Everything,” King continued.
Despite taking issue with King, Morgan has problems of his own.
His dismissal of the Duchess of Sussex’s claims in the March 7 interview, drew 41,000 complaints and a formal investigation by Britain’s Office of Communications.
As previously reported, the Good Morning Britain host exited the chat show on Tuesday, March 9 after walking off set when he was called out by a co-anchor for berating Markle.
Page Six reported Markle lodged a formal complaint against Morgan for his comments following the royal couple’s interview with Oprah.
