British television personality Piers Morgan has a new nickname for Meghan Markle, and it’s not one that she is going to like. 

Morgan took to Twitter over the weekend to respond to a since-deleted Tweet from someone who seemingly claimed that Morgan was fired from his gig on “Good Morning Britain” for his negative coverage of Meghan.

He famously walked off the set of the morning show in March after criticizing Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Morgan’s New Nickname For Meghan

In his response to the social media user, Morgan debuted his new nickname for Meghan. 

“ITV didn’t get rid of me,” Morgan wrote. “I left GMB because I declined to apologise for disbelieving Princess Pinocchio.”

But I still work for ITV, as you’ll see tomorrow when my Life Stories show with Joan Collins airs at 9pm,” he added. 

Morgan Asks Collins About Meghan

“What do you make of what’s going on with the British royal family now, with Meghan, Harry, the feud, with [Prince] William, [Prince] Charles?” Morgan asked Joan Collins. 

Collins starred on the 1980s television show “Dynasty.”

However, Collins made it clear that she had no interest in weighing in on the matter publicly during this time of  “cancel culture.”

“My lips are sealed on that subject,” the 88 year-old actress said, according to Page Six. “I just don’t want to go on national TV and say what I think about Meghan and Harry, because look what happened to you.”

“Exactly — thank you,” Morgan said in response. 

Morgan Talks Potential ‘Good Morning Britain’ Return

Morgan said last month that he would continue to work on ITV, and that he even may return to “Good Morning Britain” someday.

“I have had some quite random third-party feelers put out to see if I would consider a return to the show,” Morgan told The Sun. “I don’t want to say on the record who, but a pretty close third-party.”

“As the Americans say, they reached out — there have been approaches to test the water in the wake of their obvious ratings issues,” he added. “It makes me sad to see all the hard work we did to beat the BBC in viewing numbers evaporate so fast. It’s their problem to work out…but never say never.”

Morgan was referring to the fact that ratings for “Good Morning Britain plummeted in the wake of his departure from the program.

Morgan’s new nickname for Meghan is sure to ruffle her feathers.

It seems Markle is incapable of handling any kind of negative coverage about herself in the media.

Meghan Markle might want to work on developing a thicker skin because it looks like Piers Morgan has no intention of ceasing his remarks about her anytime soon.
