Piers Morgan, the pugnacious British presenter who has lost his high-profile breakfast TV slot over attacks on Prince Harry's wife Meghan, says he still does not believe what she said during her Oprah Winfrey interview.

"I've had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don't [believe her]", Morgan tweeted.

Morgan doubled down on these sentiments when speaking to the press on Wednesday.

"I don't believe a word she says", he said of Meghan's shocking claims made during the interview.

Mind, a United Kingdom mental health charity, said Monday it had contacted ITV about Morgan's comments, adding that it is crucial for people who speak out about mental health issues to be treated with "dignity, respect and empathy".

The news comes only hours after Morgan announced his resignation from ITV morning show, Good Morning Britain and walked out on live television.

It was further revealed that a formal complaint was filed on behalf of the former actor after Morgan commented on her interview with Oprah Winfrey, saying: "I don't believe a word she says".

'Thanks for all the love, and hate.

Asked why he would not comment on the Harry and Meghan interview, he said: 'First of all, mental health is incredibly important and particularly during this pandemic even more so.

The U.K.'s Office of Communications said it received 41,000 complaints about Morgan's comments regarding Meghan and Harry's interview with Oprah Winfrey. And I think the damage she's done to the British monarchy and to the queen at a time when Prince Philip is lying in hospital is enormous and, frankly, contemptible.

Noakes said: "I want to see the government legislate and legislate quickly to have an outright ban on conversion therapy".

CNN understands that Meghan's complaint to ITV concerned the impact Morgan's comments could have on others and how it could degrade the seriousness of mental health issues.

Mr Morgan stuck to his position this morning as he said he still does not believe the Duchess of Sussex as the GMB programme aired without him following his abrupt departure yesterday. I believe in the right to be allowed to have an opinion.

The issue of race centres around an alleged conversation had amongst family members about the skin tone of Harry and Meghan's son, Archie.

"According to the British broadcasting regulation rules, the number of viewers who complain matters, but if the person themselves who is the object of the report makes a personal complaint, then it has to be dealt with all the more quickly", Lacey told Today.

On Tuesday, before he left the show, Morgan got into a heated exchange with "Good Morning Britain" weatherman Alex Beresford, who is biracial.

Morgan responded by storming off the set as he uttered, "Okay, I'm done with this, sorry".

Murray defended Morgan and said that America and Britain can not put up with a culture that allows "dishonest characters" and "liars" to thrive, so long as they push leftist narratives, such as the hypothesis that the foundation of Britain and the United States was built on racism.

He later went into television, appearing as a judge on the reality shows America's Got Talent and Britain's Got Talent.
