Meghan Markle’s reaction to Piers Morgan’s Ofcom win – one analyst thinks the Duchess of Sussex “must be enraged.”
MEGHAN MARKLE must be “extremely enraged” with Ofcom’s decision on Piers Morgan’s comments in response to her Oprah interview, according to a royal expert.
Piers resigned his post as a presenter on Good Morning Britain earlier this year after claiming that he didn’t trust Meghan’s accusations during her interview with Oprah Winfrey. The 40-year-old said that when she expressed worries about her mental health, she was disregarded, and she claimed that racial comments were made before the birth of her son, Archie, prompting Piers to exclaim he did “not believe a word.” Morgan’s statements were the subject of an official complaint from the Duchess of Sussex at the time, according to Ofcom.
“We can confirm receipt of a standards complaint lodged on behalf of the Duchess of Sussex,” the organisation stated.
Despite the fact that his comments on the Duchess of Sussex’s conversation with Oprah Winfrey were “possibly damaging and disrespectful,” Ofcom determined today that Good Morning Britain did not break the broadcasting code.
The Duchess will not “cope” with the verdict, according to royal biographer Angela Levin, because she is “all about compassion.”
“I think she’ll be enraged, and she’ll contact her attorneys to see what they can do about it,” she told The Sun Online.
“She can’t stand it when someone accuses her of lying.
“Because she is all about empathy, compassion, and caring for others.”
“I’m sorry, I don’t trust a word she says,” Piers stated after a footage played of Meghan describing her mental health and suicide ideas, as well as royal officials’ knowledge of them.
“If she read me a weather report, I wouldn’t believe her.”
“This broadcast concentrated on the interview between Oprah Winfrey and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex,” a summary of the Ofcom judgement noted today.
“It featured remarks about suicide and mental health that might have been hurtful and insulting.
“However, we believe that the overall challenge in the program was sufficient to provide proper protection and context to its viewers.
“We also believed that the program’s comments about race could have been exceedingly insulting, but that the remarks were appropriately contextualized.
“As a result, we have reached the conclusion that the programme did not violate the Ofcom Broadcasting Code.”
“This was a finely-balanced decision,” an Ofcom spokeswoman said today.
“Mr Morgan’s remarks could be detrimental and disrespectful to viewers, as well as to us.”Brinkwire Summary News”.
