Getting a word in edgewise with Piers Morgan is a feat in and of itself, but South London activist and author Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu held her own during a Good Morning Britain appearance on Monday. While discussing Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Oprah Winfrey interview, Shola went toe to toe with Piers, schooling him each and every time he tried to paint Meghan in a negative light. "I think it's piling hurt on the queen, who is already suffering greatly from her husband's illness," Piers stated in response to the timing of the Oprah interview. The hostile reaction Piers immediately resorted to is representative of how the UK media has treated Meghan throughout her time as part of the royal family. Everything is Meghan's fault, and what Meghan does is done with malicious intent; at least so far as the UK media is concerned.

"You constantly use your platform as a wealthy, white, privileged man, with power to influence, to aggravate and escalate the bigoted, sexist, racist, and misogynist attacks on Meghan Markle," Shola countered as Piers called it "race-baiting nonsense." Piers continued to get louder throughout Shola's appearance, speaking over her as she tried to get her point across. "What kind of grandmother would be so close to her grandson, Harry, but then not use her power and influence as queen to protect them from the racist media coverage?" Shola questioned in another clip. "The royal family, as an institution, is rooted, listen, you might learn something, is rooted in colonialism, white supremacy, and racism. The legacy is right there. So you're now surprised that comments would be made by the royal family about how dark Archie's skin is?" How did Piers react? He certainly didn't listen. Instead, he tried to cut off Shola because she was saying something he didn't like.

Later, Shola tweeted about her experience on the show, saying, "The Queen is not above reproach. She & the Royal Family are neither faultless or perfect. They have a case to answer for the failure to support #HarryandMeghan from racism/ hate media which led to them stepping back royal duties." She also called out Piers for his double standard when it came to covering Harry and Meghan, using certain titles from the media to portray the narrative HE wanted to. "Piers didn't like me calling him a liar and disgrace for using coverage of paper headlines of #MeghanAndHarry Engagement and Wedding while conveniently ignoring the headlines BEFORE the Engagement and BETWEEN it and the Wedding," she tweeted. Just like Meghan during her interview with Oprah, Shola is setting the record straight about what is happening when Meghan makes headlines in the UK. As Meghan said in an exclusive clip from CBS This Morning, the UK tabloids "don't report the news, they create the news."

Piers's abhorrent behavior in regards to Meghan continued on Good Morning Britain on March 9, with him storming off set as fellow presenter Alex Beresford called him out. Later, ITV confirmed that Piers would be stepping down from his position on the show. "Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain. ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add," read the official statement from the television network. It has not yet been announced who will step in as his replacement.
