“She has the right to interrupt you if she wants to,” Mr Beresford said. “Has she said anything about you since she cut you off?” I don’t think she did, but yet you keep ransacking her.
Mr. Morgan then rose from his anchor chair and left the set.
“OK, I’m done with this,” he said.
The two hosts chatted as he walked away, Mr Beresford saying: “Do you know what? This is pathetic.
Mr Morgan replied, “Sorry, I can’t do that,” before leaving the set for what would be the last time.
Mr Beresford continued to denounce Mr Morgan for his repeated beatings against Meghan.
“This is absolutely devilish behavior,” he said.
ITV said in a statement that Mr Morgan would no longer appear on Hello Great Britain.
“After discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan decided it was now time to go Hello Great Britain“the network said.
He did not elaborate on the nature of the discussions with Mr Morgan, who did not immediately respond to requests for comment later Tuesday. For much of the day, he trained with people on Twitter.
Mr Morgan, who may be familiar to American viewers since his time on CNN about a decade ago, sparked a firestorm on Monday with his comment on Meghan’s revelation that she was having suicidal thoughts.
“I’m sorry, I don’t believe a word of what she is saying, Meghan Markle,” Mr Morgan said on Monday. “I wouldn’t believe her if she read me a weather report. The fact that she sparked this attack on our royal family, I think, is despicable.
Ahead of his abrupt departure from the show on Tuesday, Mr Morgan maintained his previous comments questioning Meghan’s credibility.
“I still have serious concerns about the veracity of a lot of what she said,” he said.
But on the topic of mental illness and suicide, the TV host walked much more cautiously than he did on Monday.
“If anyone feels this way, they should get the treatment and help they need every time, and if they belong to an institution like the Royal Family and they are going to seek that help, they absolutely have to. receive, ”said Morgan said.
He said he did not dispute whether Meghan intended to kill herself.
“It’s not for me to wonder if she felt suicidal,” he said.
“I wasn’t in her head, and it’s up to her to say it. Frankly my real concern was disbelief – and I’m willing to be wrong about that, and if I’m wrong, it’s a scandal – that she went to a senior member of the royal household, told them that ‘she was suicidal. and she was told that she couldn’t get help because it would be a bad image for the family.
“If that’s true, A, that person, if they’re still around, they should be fired,” he said, “and, B, the royals have some serious questions about how she handled it. “
The latest fallout from the explosive interview with Meghan came shortly after Buckingham Palace released a statement saying the allegations of racism made by Prince Harry and Meghan in an interview with Oprah Winfrey were “concerning”.
He did not deny the allegations and said that “although some memories may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be treated by the family in private.”
“Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved members of the family,” Buckingham Palace said at the end of the statement.
