The host stepped out of his London, England home this morning where reporters were waiting to question him about walking off, and quitting the popular program. Morgan confirmed he did step down from his hosting gig, after having a “good chat” with ITV the network which produces the show.

“I don’t believe almost anything that comes out of her mouth and I think the damage she’s done to the British monarchy and to the Queen at a time when Prince Philip is lying in hospital is enormous and frankly contemptible,” he told reporters.
According to The Sun, he wasn’t done yet, adding, “I believe in freedom of speech, I believe in the right to be allowed to have an opinion. If people want to believe Meghan Markle, that’s entirely their right.”
He continued, “If I have to fall on my sword for expressing an honestly held opinion about Meghan Markle and that diatribe of bilge that she came out within that interview, so be it.”

The brutal statement comes on the heels of an announcement that Meghan Markle had personally filed a complaint with ITV about Piers Morgan’s original comments about the interview.
According to reports, Markle’s complaint concerned the impact Morgan’s comments could have on others and degrade the seriousness of mental health issues. As you know, during the Oprah Winfrey interview she revealed she had thoughts of suicide — and had nowhere to go to receive help in the palace.
After the interview, Piers questioned Meghan’s truthfulness about having suicidal thoughts.
Piers Morgan took to Twitter to voice his opinion on the subject, after having time to reflect on his decision and statements.
“I’ve had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don’t [believe her],” he tweeted.
He continued, “If you did, OK. Freedom of speech is a hill I’m happy to die on. Thanks for all the love, and hate. I’m off to spend more time with my opinions.”
For the record, a UK media regulator said it had received over 41,000 complaints about Monday’s edition of ‘Good Morning Britain’ and launched an investigation into the situation.
On Monday, I said I didn’t believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview. I’ve had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don’t. If you did, OK. Freedom of speech is a hill I’m happy to die on. Thanks for all the love, and hate. I’m off to spend more time with my opinions. pic.twitter.com/bv6zpz4Roe
