During his acceptance speech at the Sports Journalism Awards, Piers Morgan mentioned Meghan Markle. Morgan won the Scoop of the Year award for his interview with Cristiano Ronaldo at the ceremony on Monday evening (March 6).
Even though there were many people who helped him get the award, the broadcaster chose to say that Meghan was a big reason for his success. He told the crowd:
I’d also like to thank Meghan Markle, without whom there wouldn’t be a TalkTV Piers Morgan Uncensored.

Journalists who were there say that this comment was met with groans and other sounds of discomfort. Morgan hasn't liked Meghan Markle for a long time, and he quit his job as the host of Good Morning Britain after he, the show, and ITV got a lot of bad press for what he said about her interview with Oprah Winfrey.
In 2021, when Harry and Meghan sat down with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan told her that she had thought about killing herself while she was a member of the Royal Family. Morgan said that he "didn't believe a word" of what the Duchess said about her struggles with mental health.
After many people called for him to be fired, it was announced a few days later that Morgan would be leaving Good Morning Britain because he wouldn't apologize for what he had said.
In 2022, he came back to TV with Piers Morgan Uncensored, news, and opinion show on TalkTV. His first interviewee was Donald Trump, the former US president, with whom he's had a few online fights. Since then, Morgan has talked to more controversial people, like Kanye West and Andrew Tate.
Piers Morgan recently criticized what Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said about the King's coronation after hearing that they had been invited to the event.
On Sunday, it came out that the pair had been officially invited to the ceremony by His Majesty's office. However, a spokesperson said that their attendance "will not be made public" at this time.
The words left the 57-year-old talk show host with a bad taste in her mouth, so she took another shot at the couple. As he has done many times before, Piers criticized Harry and Meghan for how they had run their business. On Twitter, the former host of "Good Morning Britain" wrote, "The arrogance of this statement is comical."
These Monarchy-trashing clowns shouldn’t be anywhere the Coronation, let anyone [sic] taking their time to 'make a decision.'

People who follow him had different reactions to what he said. For example, one said, "Clearly waiting to hear from the Netflix producers if they can get a camera crew in time."
Piers Morgan thanked Meghan Markle for the award he got from her last night. The award was for Scoop of the Year, which he won for his interview with Cristiano Ronaldo.
The 57-year-old gave his win to Meghan Markle and joked that TalkTV might not have been made without her. As Piers walked up to the podium at an event honoring great sports journalism, he was met with both boos and cheers.
