Piers Morgan leaks private message Meghan Markle sent him before she was a royal
It's safe to say that British journalist Piers Morgan is not a big fan of Meghan Markle.
Ever since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex expressed their desire to step down as senior royals so that they can spend more time in North America, Morgan has repeatedly used his platform as host of UK morning magazine show Good Morning Britain to bash the former Suits star.
Piers Morgan calls Harry and Meghan 'spoiled brats':
In a recent interview with Sunrise, Morgan described Meghan as a "ruthless social climber' who has spent her life "using people, moving on and ditching them".
The 54-year-old added that Markle has a history of "ghosting and ditching" those close to her, and that this behavior "really cemented in me a feeling that Meghan Markle is not quite what she seems".
But perhaps the reason behind Morgan's criticism of Markle is all down to the fact she apparently messaged him back in 2015 (and presumably never got back in touch).
Morgan tweeted to his 7.1 million followers: "In happier times... when Meghan first slid into my DMs... think it’s fair to say she’s probably not such a ‘big fan’ of mine now", along with a screenshot of the message:
Meghan allegedly sent Piers the message back in 2015 - three years before she married Prince Harry.
But Piers didn't get the response he was perhaps hoping for from Twitter users, with some people branding the presenter "creepy".
Earlier this month, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex released a statement to the public expressing their wish for "geographic balance" and more time to launch their "new charitable entity".
Piers Morgan discusses whether or not Meghan will face her father in court:
Their full statement read:
"After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution.
"We intend to step back as 'senior' members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen.
"It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment.
"We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to the Queen, the Commonwealth and our patronages.
"This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity.
"We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties.
"Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support."
In response to the announcement, the Queen released a statement saying that the Royal family is "entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family", but added, "these are complex matters for my family to resolve, and there is some more work to be done."
