Trisha Goddard has been praised for expertly taking down Piers Morgan after the Good Morning Britain host again attacked Meghan Markle.
Morgan, an outspoken critic of Meghan, branded the Duke and Duchess of Sussexes’ explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey an “absolutely disgraceful betrayal”.
He went on the rant after Meghan said she faced racism from within the Royal Family, including “concerns and conversations about how dark [Archie’s] skin might be when he was born.”
Morgan said: “This is a two-hour ‘trashathon’ of our Royal Family, the monarchy and everything the Queen has worked hard for, done while Prince Philip lies in hospital.
“They basically make out they are a bunch of white supremacists by dropping a racist bombshell.”

She said: “Why is everyone else such an expert about racism against Black people?

“You can call out all the other stuff, I’ll leave you to call out all the other stuff you want, but leave the racism stuff to us, eh?”
