In Morgan's first televised interview since he left Good Morning Britain — Morgan exited the program last month just one day after he slammed Meghan Markle for her and Prince Harry's tell-all with Oprah Winfrey — the embattled host reiterated his doubts about the claims the Duchess made during the couple's bombshell interview.

While speaking on Fox Nation's Tucker Carlson Today on Monday, April 5, Morgan slammed the couple's interview once again, calling it an "undiluted whine-a-thon" and criticized "cancel culture."

In addition, he blasted The Talk for how they handled the Sharon Osbourne incident after she defended Morgan's freedom of speech — which resulted in her parting ways with the talk show.

"I still don’t believe what they were saying, and in particular I don’t believe what Meghan Markle said," Morgan reiterated in regards to the Duke and Duchess' Sunday, March 7, interview with Oprah. "Seventeen different claims by the pair of them have now been proven to be either completely untrue or massively exaggerated, or unprovable.”

Of Meghan's entire interview, he questioned: "Now, is she deliberately lying? Is she completely delusional? I don't know, but frankly, I don't care."

Regarding Meghan's comments about her mental health and suicidal thoughts she experienced while working as a senior royal member, Morgan told Carlson: "It’s not for me to say that she felt suicidal, that’s not for me to know."

As OK! reported, during her sit-down with Oprah, Meghan claimed she "went to the institution, and I said I needed to go somewhere to get help." According to the brunette beauty, she was allegedly told she couldn't seek assistance because "it wouldn’t be good for the institution."

Morgan maintained that he didn't believe she actually met with members of the royal household and was then denied help — he made the same claims on the Monday, March 8, episode of Good Morning Britain, which originally landed him in hot water.

When it came to Meghan's claim that members of the royal family had "concerns and conversations about how dark [her first child Archie's] skin might be when he's born," as she told Oprah, Morgan said if Meghan is going to make such a vicious claim, she should at least have proof to back up her accusation of racism. 

"My problem with this whole interview was these incredibly damaging allegations were tossed out there, and none of them were challenged properly," he added.

After Morgan accused Meghan of lying last month, the Duchess filed an ITV complaint against him, citing her concern for how his comments could affect viewers who were also struggling with mental health issues, OK! reported

While discussing Meghan's complaint, Morgan insisted that, as a journalist, he should be able to "question the veracity of those statements."

Several times during the interview, Morgan also bashed The Talk's handling of the Osbourne scandal.

As OK! reported, Osbourne and cohost Sheryl Underwood got into a heated debate on the March 10 episode, during which Underwood questioned how Osbourne could defend someone who "uttered" something "racist." 

In response, Osbourne broke down on-air, and CBS launched an investigation into the episode, which put the show on hiatus.

In addition, Osbourne released a statement apologizing to anyone she may have offended and said she felt "blindsided" and got "defensive" on air. Following the heated on-air discussion, a series of racist allegations were made against Osbourne. 

On March 26, it was confirmed that she was leaving The Talk, with CBS releasing a statement that read: "As part of our review, we concluded that Sharon’s behavior toward her co-hosts during the March 10 episode did not align with our values for a respectful workplace."

Osbourne "was bullied into apologizing for defending me against a disgusting slur that I’m a racist.... And then she lost her job anyway," Morgan said of his friend during the interview, which lasted over an hour.

Morgan further slammed cancel culture, sharing that it's "terrifying" that "people feel so cowed by the fear of the woke mob that they can't express an honestly held opinion without being immediately branded a racist."

Morgan also made it a point that the red-headed prince, 36, and Suits alum, 39, were still profiting off the institution that they so publicly criticized. After closing two multi-million dollar deals with Netflix and Spotify, Morgan insisted they only got the deals because "they’re the Duke and Duchess of Sussex," he claimed. 

"They’re getting them off their royal titles, the royal titles bestowed on them by the very institution that in the interview with Oprah Winfrey they say they can’t stand and is suffocating and traps them and so on and so on. But you can’t have it both ways," he stated before calling for both of them to "give up their titles."
