Describing her actions as "contemptible", Morgan told journalists outside his London home, "I don't believe almost anything that comes out of her mouth."

"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 with in that interview, so be it," he added.

The 55-year-old left ITV's Good Morning Britain on Tuesday (March 9) after his long-running criticism of Meghan intensified in the wake of her interview with Winfrey, in which she revealed she had felt suicidal while living as a royal in Britain.

[INTERPOSING VOICES]

- Can we do a picture of you without your daughter unless you're giving permission?

PIERS MORGAN: No, 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. I don't believe almost anything that comes out of her mouth.

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. So 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 with in that interview, so be it.

- You're at a position to leave. High City wanted you out.

PIERS MORGAN: Yeah, no, it's all very amicable. I think the chap likes [INAUDIBLE] and we agreed to disagree.

- Do you go to school?

- Let's let them out.

- Thank you very much.

PIERS MORGAN: Cheers guys. Take care.
