Piers Morgan has named Sarah Ferguson as one of the royals who supported him after he quit Good Morning Britain over his row about Meghan Markle's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The 56 year old, who recently called Alex Beresford a "stand in weather guy" and slammed him, spoke out about the ordeal and the subsequent text message he received from the Duchess of York in his Mail on Sunday column.

"Not all Royal duchesses were as thrilled as Meghan ‘Pinocchio’ Markle to see me leave GMB," he declared.

The TV personality added: "'People have said how much they miss your morning joy and humour,’ texted Sarah, Duchess of York, ‘get back out there!’

"Perhaps we should start a new breakfast show together… ‘Morgy and Fergie in the Morning’, anyone?"

However, it appears 61 year old Fergie isn't the only one to reach out to him as he previously revealed he had been sent messages of "gratitude" by several Royal Family members.

Piers, who recently celebrated his birthday in lockdown with a boozy BBQ, said he received texts on behalf of the Royal Family for "standing up" against he Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The dad-of-four added: "I'm not going to go into who it was. But what I would say is, gratitude that somebody was standing up."

Piers also categorically denied he is a racist and explained why he's been critical over Harry, 36, and Meghan.

"I'm not racist. Nothing I've ever said about Meghan Markle is either racist or racially motivated," he expressed. "I've been very critical of Prince Harry and last time I checked he was white and so I find this narrative deeply offensive."

Billy quizzed Piers on what he would say to Meghan, 39, if he was given the chance to speak with her.

He responded: "I would say to Meghan Markle, 'Look, sit down with me, with your husband for an equally long interview and let me ask you more difficult questions about all your claims.

"But let me ask you a wider question, which is this: 'If you hate the Royal Family that much, why do you keep your royal titles? Why do you keep calling yourselves the Duke and Duchess of Sussex?'".
