As they debated about Meghan's claims against the Royal Family, Piers fumed: "Just because they're saying it's 'their truth', doesn't make it true what they're saying, does it?"

Susanna said: "No, but we have to take seriously what is said in this interview in the same way we take seriously other stories about allegations of bullying seriously."

Angry Piers hit back saying: "Only last week, Susanna, we were told we couldn't by her lawyers the very serious claims of bullying about Meghan Markle.

"You can't have it both ways. So we take everything they say very seriously but anything said about her or him we can't?"

Susanna explained: "We do take them seriously. We discuss them on the programme. We are journalists, we do things differently. We take everything seriously."

Furious Piers hit back saying: "Well, thanks for the lecture on journalism."

Continuing her point, Susanna added: "We interrogate everything. Let's take them seriously."

The pair clashed heads numerous times Good Morning Britain today.

Later in the programme, Susanna defended Prince Harry and wife Meghan over claims they took lucrative Netflix deal to pay for their own security.

She said: "I think it's so unsympathetic to a couple who were clearly at risk. All they were asking for was to be protected."

Fed up Piers replied: "Oh please. You are buying into their ludicrously self-serving narrative, I'm sorry."

Buckingham Palace last week launched an investigation into claims that Meghan bullied her staff.

Now Meghan has claimed that her son Archie wasn't made a prince after "concerns and conversations" about "how dark" his skin would be when he was born.
