Meghan Markle latest news – Duchess MUST reveal name of racist royal so Brits can stop their money, Piers Morgan demands

MEGHAN Markle must reveal the name of the senior royal who "expressed concern" at Archie's skin colour so they can stop receiving taxpayer money, Piers Morgan has demanded.

The second half of the former GMB presenter's Billy Bush interview aired in the US last night during which he renewed calls for Meghan to name names to back up her racism claims.

During their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan and Prince Harry made shocking claims of racism at the heart of the royal family.

But they refused to say who made the racist comments, other than getting friends to reveal it wasn't the Queen or Prince Philip.

"[Meghan] hasn't named who that person is, so everybody is in the frame, apart from the Queen and Prince Philip, who they magnanimously removed from the frame," Piers said last night.

"Was there a problem about the skin colour of this child in the eyes of the Royal? If it were, if this is how it was done, then I want to know who that Royal is because I'm paying for them as a British taxpayer. I don't want to be paying for a racist," he added.

It comes as an expert claimed Meghan can't damage the royals like her hero Princess Diana because she's simply not important enough

Pauline Maclaren, author of Royal Fever: The British Monarchy in Consumer Culture, pointed out several key differences between Meghan's Oprah Winfrey interview and Diana's interview with Martin Bashir.

She told the Mirror: "I don't think the [Meghan and Harry] interview can be really rated in a similar way to the Diana interview, which really turned the public very much against the royal family here.

"When Diana did her interviews, that was after they had suffered many other things during that period, so that was a sort of culminating scandal or the culmination of a series of scandals, really.

"This time, I think it's just not quite the same and particularly because Harry and Meghan had already left."

Another serious difference is their rank, with Diana speaking out while she was Princess of Wales and future Queen, while Meghan is married a junior royal who continues to fall further down the line to the throne.

Meghan is said to have have hero-worshipped Diana as a child, becoming "obsessed" with watching endless reruns of Diana’s fairy tale wedding according to her friend’s mother, Sonia Ardakani.

    MEHGAN’S LAWYERS ‘WAITING TO JUMP’ ON PIERS

    The Duchess of Sussex’s lawyers will be picking through Piers Morgan’s words, one Royal expert has said.

    “I imagine that the lawyers are working out if there is a sentence or a verb or something that Piers said that they could jump on,” Royal biographer Angela Levin told TalkRadio.

    "So I think it is a bit precipitous actually to say she hasn't come back yet.

    "She is a very determined woman, heavily pregnant or not. She will want to fight back."

    MEGHAN URGED TO NAME ‘RACIST ROYAL’ TO CUT TAXPAYER FUNDING

    Piers Morgan has renewed his call for Meghan Markle to name the Royal Family member who they claim questioned “how dark” Archie's skin would be. 

    The presenter said in an interview with Billy Bush that would allow whoever it was to be punished by having any taxpayer funding withdrawn.

    He said Meghan “hasn't named who that person is, so everybody is in the frame, apart from the Queen and Prince Philip, who they magnanimously removed from the frame.

    “Was there a problem about the skin colour of this child in the eyes of the Royal? If it were, if this is how it was done, then I want to know who that Royal is because I'm paying for them as a British taxpayer. I don't want to be paying for a racist.”
