Several members of the royal family, allegedly, sent messages to Piers Morgan to thank him for standing up and defending them against the claims of Meghan Markle in her interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Morgan revealed in an interview with Billy Bush for ExtraTV that had messages communicated to him on behalf of the royals. The TV presenter, however, didn't want to say which royal family members sent messages but he acknowledged their gratitude for speaking up and challenging the Duchess of Sussex's claims.

The broadcaster quit his long-held job as the host of Good Morning Britain because of his reactions and criticisms of Meghan Markle after her interview. He earned backlash, however, for refusing to believe that the duchess had suicidal thoughts, as she confessed to Winfrey, because of her highly-scrutinized life as someone in the royal spotlight.

Some royal experts, however, are doubting that members of the royal family sent their messages of thanks to Morgan. According to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's biographer, Omid Scobie, Buckingham Palace didn't want to comment on the claims. Robert Jobson, who is also a royal family biographer, thinks that the claim is quite "tongue in cheek."

Royal commentator Angela Levin said that Morgan's quarrel with Meghan could turn into a "spiteful" boxing match after reports cited that the duchess wants to answer one of her greatest critics on television. Speaking on TalkRADIO, Levin said that the former friends have one thing in common in that they don't want to lose in an argument.

Levin also thinks that Meghan's lawyers are keeping tabs of Morgan's statements as he continues to do interviews after quitting his anchor job. However, as much as Meghan wants to fight back, Levin believes she will not be doing this in her current state as she's heavily pregnant with her second baby with Prince Harry.

In another interview with Tucker Carlson for Fox News, Morgan pointed out the 17 lies Meghan claimed during her chat with Winfrey. The broadcaster said that these claims were "completely untrue or massively exaggerated or unprovable."

He said that his network, ITV, wanted him to publicly apologize for his comments against Meghan. However, he refused to do this because he doesn't believe her. Apparently, the ITV bosses personally received a call from Meghan after Morgan blasted the Duchess of Sussex on his morning show.

Over 57,000 viewers complained about Morgan's rant against Meghan Markle on Good Morning Britain. Morgan said that he and his family has been receiving death threats.
