Members of the royal family have sent private messages to Piers Morgan thanking him for “standing up for them” after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s overwhelming televised account, the former TV host has revealed.

Morgan quickly became one of the couple’s outspoken critics, even quitting his role as host of “Good Morning Britain” rather than apologize.

Since then he has “had a lot of private support from a lot of people” – including the royals he has vigorously defended, Morgan told “Extra.”

“Messages were communicated to me on behalf of several members of the royal family who were grateful … that someone stood up for them,” said the 56-year-old former “America’s Got Talent” judge.

He remained shy, however, when asked if this included messages from “high-level people,” saying, “Well, I’m not going to get into who it was.”

Support also extended to his own family, even as his sons received death threats from “so-called liberals” who were “led by an online mob”.

“My wife has always been very supportive about this, but she hates online abuse,” he said, calling his sons’ threats “completely disgusting”.

Boasting that it remains ‘decidedly uncancelled’, Morgan said he would also like to have his own follow-up interview with Meghan and Harry to confront them with their most damaging claims to Oprah Winfrey.

“I would say to Meghan Markle, ‘Look, sit down with me with your husband for an equally long interview and let me ask you tougher questions about all of your claims,” Morgan told Billy Bush.

“‘But let me ask you a broader question, which is, if you hate the royal family so much … why are you keeping your royal titles?’ He said of the couple who are still known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

“Why would you do this if it’s not just to make millions and millions of dollars?” And playing the victim, like you do, is nauseating, ”he said.

Morgan angrily defended himself against accusations that his attacks on Markle were racist – pointing out that he was equally critical of Harry “and the last time I checked he was white.

“So I find this account deeply offensive,” he said.
