Megan complained to the British media regulator about host Pierce Morgan and his comment that he did not believe a single word she said in her landmark interview with Oprah Winfrey, informs Reuters.
Morgan, a former tabloid editor and CNN presenter, left his high-profile job at ITV’s Good Morning Britain this week after reacting to his comments in an interview in which Megan said she felt suicidal while living in the UK kingdom.
In an interview that shocked the British monarchy, Megan, who married Prince Harry in 2018, said the royal family also rejected her request for mental health support.
The morning after the interview aired on American television, Morgan told Good Morning Britain, among other critical remarks, that he did not believe a single word Megan said. In his Twitter, he called her “Princess Pinocchio.”
Monday’s program drew more than 41,000 complaints to Britain’s media regulator Ofcom, the second largest in history to announce an investigation. According to media reports, the couple also complained to ITV.
“We can confirm receipt of the standards complaint filed on behalf of the Duchess of Sussex,” an Ofcom spokesman said Friday, citing Megan’s official title.
Megan and Harry have repeatedly encountered the British media, including tabloids, which they accused of bigotry and invasion of privacy.
