Piers Morgan says he has probably ‘taken things a bit too far’ with his criticism of Meghan Markle after she and Prince Harry quit the Royal Family.
In an interview in today’s The Sunday Times, the Good Morning Britain host, 55, was asked whether he should have toned down his criticism of the couple both before and after they quit royal life.
The former newspaper editor admitted: “Yeah, probably. I think that’s a perfectly fair criticism.
“It’s probably not wise, if you’re a columnist, to make things too personal.
“Have I taken things a bit too far? Probably.
“Do I think that will govern and temper how I talk about them going forward? Absolutely.”
In January, the journalist accused the duchess, 38, of having “ditched” her own relatives, and “split” the duke, 35, from the rest of his family after they announced they were “stepping back” from their royal duties.
In a post on Twitter, he wrote: “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.”
Last year, he also accused her of behaving like a member of the reality TV family the Kardashians ‘not somebody who married into the royal family’.
