Morgan left the breakfast show after an on-air row with a colleague who criticised him for “continuing to trash” the duchess, after he said earlier this week he “didn’t believe a word” of her Oprah Winfrey interview.
Reports suggest the duchess’s concern centred on how Morgan’s comments may affect the issue of mental health generally and those attempting to deal with their own problems.
In a tweet posted on Wednesday morning, Morgan told followers: “On Monday, I said I didn’t believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview.
“I’ve had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don’t. If you did, OK. Freedom of speech is a hill I’m happy to die on.
“Thanks for all the love, and hate. I’m off to spend more time with my opinions.”
