The ‘Good Morning Britain’ presenter, 53, claimed Meghan, 37, “ditched me like a sack of potatoes” when she started dating Prince Harry, on Australia’s Today Show.
Presenter Deborah Knight asked Mr Morgan: “Is Meghan really fake and a piece of work as I know you’ve said before?”
He responded with: “I’m sorry to have to say to this, but I’m afraid I think she is. I got to know her quite well over a two-year period and we would message each other a lot, email each other a lot.”
“Although some people… are falling for this act, I’m afraid I see a bit of a hard-nosed actress who’s been using people on her way up to what is now, of course, the top.” – @piersmorgan shares his thoughts on the Duchess of Sussex. #9Today pic.twitter.com/rsxjPKLM9S

Morgan says the pair began corresponding after he began following her on Twitter in 2015 and recalled the time they met up in his local pub when she visited London in 2016.
“She said ‘I’m coming to London, can we meet up?’ We went to my local pub, I had a couple of pints of real ale, she had a couple of Dirty Martinis and we chewed the fat for a couple of hours.
“She said afterwards from her cab, ‘I had such a great time, love to see you again.’ It was purely platonic, I hasten to add.
“But she went in that cab that night to a party where Prince Harry was at and the next night she went on a date with him. I never heard from her again, ever.”
Morgan said he thought it was rude, adding: “It showed me that she, I’m afraid, is probably a bit of a social climber.
“Although some people really like her and are falling for this act, I’m afraid I see a bit of a hard-nosed actress, who’s been using people on her way up to, what is now of course the top, which is marrying into the Royal Family.”
When Harry and Meghan announced their engagement in November 2017, Morgan revealed how “delighted” he was for the couple in his column for The Daily Mail.
He said that it was “perfectly understandable under the circumstances,” that he hadn’t heard from Meghan again after news of her relationship broke.
It seems that he’s changed his tune since then and has continually bleated about being “ditched” by her.
Meghan is expecting her first child next month and has no more scheduled public engagements in her diary.
