GMB’s Piers Morgan defends Meghan Markle’s dad amid court showdown claims

Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan has strongly defended Meghan Markle's dad after reports claim he is set to stand trial in court against the Duchess of Sussex after he released a private letter to the media last year

The ITV host has admitted he feels sorry for Thomas, 75, for how he has been cut off from his daughter.

Thomas, who lives in America, is yet to meet either Prince Harry or their son Archie, despite the high profile royal wedding in May 2018.

A new report by The Daily Telegraph has revealed Mr Markle has submitted a string of texts to and from Meghan which were sent before the wedding around the time he was admitted to hospital for a heart operation.

Publicly defending Mr Markle, Piers said: "There were so many cynics about his story but I've got to say when he was on Good Morning Britain I believed him.

"I thought he came over naive.

"Yes, he he had been foolish to work with paparazzi, he wanted to look better rather than have pictures of him with a six pack [of beer] and he made a mistake.

"I felt sorry for him as no one believed him."

As the debate about Harry and Meghan's future heated up, Susanna Reid argued Meghan has shown compassion with her recent charity work.

Seeing red, Piers vented: "Let's ask her father Thomas how compassionate she is."

Over the past couple of weeks the Monarchy has been rocked to the core after Price Harry and Meghan dropped a bombshell statement revealing they plan to step back as full-time royals and split their time between Canada and the UK.

According to multiple reports, The Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William were not aware of the bombshell Harry was about to drop.

In a showdown emergency meeting at Sandringham, The Queen promised to back Harry and Meghan with their new live, though admitted she had hoped he would remain a full time royal.
