Piers Morgan slams Gayle King for 'acting as Meghan & Harry's PR mouthpiece' & says she should 'ask Sussexes about lies'
PIERS Morgan has blasted Gayle King for “acting” as Meghan and Harry’s “PR mouthpiece” – and said she should ask the couple about the “lies” they told Oprah.
The former GMB presenter, 55, took aim at the broadcaster after she criticised the Royal family earlier this week.

During the Oprah interview, Meghan claimed an unnamed royal had raised “concerns” about the skin colour of her and Harry’s children and alleged the Palace had denied her mental health support.
Speaking after the bombshell chat, Gayle King backed Meghan and said the Royal Family “has to acknowledge” its issue with race.
She added: “Right now, no one has acknowledged, Houston we have a problem here.”
Responding to the claims, Piers tweeted: “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.”
King also this week revealed Prince Harry had an “unproductive phone call” with Prince William – their first chat since the bombshell Oprah interview.
But sources told Vanity Fair that Wills was “worried” that private conversations with his brother could end up “plastered over American TV” following the revelation.
It comes after Morgan dramatically quit ITV following a clash with weatherman Alex Beresford over the Sussexes’ Oprah interview.
The TV host resigned when senior ITV executives said they wanted him to say sorry on air following 40,000 Ofcom complaints over his dismissal of the Duchess of Sussex's revelations on Oprah.
Piers told viewers he “didn’t believe a word” of Meghan’s CBS interview, in which she said she “didn’t want to be alive” and that the Palace had denied her mental health support.
But he has hinted that a return to the screen could be imminent following his departure from GMB.
GB News boss Andrew Neil has also made no secret of wanting to bag Piers for his news network – even offering him a job on live TV.
