TV Host Piers Morgan has admitted he’s ‘taken things a bit too far’ with his criticism of Meghan Markle after she and Prince Harry quit the British Royal Family.
Morgan, a critical Arsenal fan, Daily Mail Columnist and presenter of the Good Morning Britain show has in the past, written very critical articles about Meghan Markle accusing her of ‘ditching’ her own relatives and causing the rift between her husband Harry and the Royal Family.
In January, he tweeted: ‘People say I’m too critical of Meghan Markle – but she ditched her family, ditched her Dad, ditched most of her old friends, split Harry from William and has now split him from the Royal Family.
‘I rest my case.’
Speaking to The Sunday Times, however, he admitted that ‘it’s probably not wise, if you’re a columnist, to make things too personal’.
Commenting on his previous comments about the Duchess of Sussex, Mr Morgan said: ‘Have I taken things a bit too far? Probably.
‘Do I think that will govern and temper how I talk about them going forward?
He added that he is at his ‘best as a journalist on stuff that really matters’.
‘It’s the stuff that is substantial, particularly when people’s lives are at stake, that seems to galvanise my personality into the best possible place,’ he said.
‘And it’s times of relative peace, calm, quiet and dare I say boredom that might occasionally bring out the worst in me.
‘Having squabbles with people who are never going to change their mind in a million years about stuff that no longer seems remotely important.’
