Piers Morgan leaked a private message that he claimed was sent to him by Meghan Markle in 2015, in which the then-actress said she was a “big fan” of the TV host.
“When Meghan first slid into my DMs … think it’s fair to say she’s probably not such a ‘big fan’ of mine now,” Morgan wrote on Twitter.
However, the pair were on good terms until the duchess “ghosted” him after meeting Prince Harry, according to Morgan.
Writing on Twitter, the TV host said: “In happier times… when Meghan first slid into my DMs… think it’s fair to say she’s probably not such a ‘big fan’ of mine now.”
He shared a photo of a message that appeared to be from the then-actress, which read: “Well hello there — thanks for the follow. Big fan of yours!”
The date of the message shows it was sent in September 2015 — 10 months before she met Prince Harry in July 2016.
Morgan has repeatedly criticized the Duchess of Sussex over the years.
“Like all good actresses, Meghan knows how to distract attention and self-promote herself as a ‘charitable’ person,” he wrote in his recent column for the Daily Mail.
“Yet what does it say about her that she would take a seaplane to go and see complete strangers (after taking four transatlantic flights between the UK and Canada in just seven weeks), yet has never once got on a plane to go see her own father after he suffered a heart attack amid the stress of her wedding?
“It says to me that Meghan Markle’s pretense to be the Queen of Hearts is built on the flimsiest of self-interested sand. Oh, she’s all heart for strangers when there are cameras around,” he added.
