Piers Morgan’s wife Celia Walden has called Meghan Markle’s behaviour ‘vulgar and crass’ following on from her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in March
Celia Walden has joined in with scolding Meghan Markle – following in the footsteps of her husband Piers Morgan.
The author and journalist, 45, has taken a swipe at the Duchess of Sussex in a new interview, following on from her bombshell chat with Oprah Winfrey back in March – which led to Piers’ exit from Good Morning Britain.
A furious Celia has described Meghan’s behaviour as “impudent and vulgar” as she sided with her husband’s views on the former Suits actress.
Celia has made it clear that she didn’t agree with Piers walking off set, but has revealed she is slowly becoming a royalist.
Piers’ wife explained that her views towards the Royal family are becoming more like her husband’s, and she is siding with his opinions of them.
Slamming Meghan’s behaviour, she told The Telegraph: “The Queen’s just been so amazing recently.
“And to have this impudent girl [ Meghan Markle, The Duchess of Sussex] behave in such a crass and vulgar way…”
Back in March, Piers caused outrage as he argued with Alex Beresford over Meghan and her claims during her tell-all interview with Oprah.
Piers landed himself in hot water with Ofcom when he said he refused to believe comments made by the Duchess Of Sussex during the interview were true.
Meghan told how she struggled with her mental health while working as a senior member of the Royal Family and had been subject to racial discrimination in the Royal family.
It ended with the controversial TV presenter storming off air, before he later stepped down as a host of the daytime show.
Now, Piers has admitted he is ‘intrigued’ to hear the verdict of TV regulator Ofcom’s investigation into his comments about Meghan.
Ofcom confirmed that 57,121 people – including Meghan herself – had submitted formal complaints over the presenter’s comments about her.
Piers retweeted an article that read: “@piersmorgan proving ‘difficult to replace’ on ‘Good Morning Britain’, admits ITV boss.”, before telling how he was intrigued about the outcome of the Ofcom complaints.
“She personally complained to the regulator & the CEO of ITV. Should be a fascinating verdict.”
In June he said that being told to apologise to the Duchess of Sussex was “farcical”.
Appearing on Fox News in the US, he said: “In relation to that interview, we now know that there were at least 17 things that came out of Meghan Markle’s mouth which have now been proven to be untrue.
“So I don’t know at what point I’m allowed to not have to apologise for disbelieving somebody who is palpably a liar.”
