Piers Morgan has a dig at Meghan Markle as he beats her on influential Londoners poll


PIERS Morgan took a swipe at Meghan Markle today after he beat her in a list of the most influential Londoners.

The Good Morning Britain presenter couldn’t resist the opportunity to gloat after he came in one place ahead of the Duchess of Sussex in The London Power 100.

The 54-year-old, who is one of the Sussexes‘ biggest critics, said on GMB on Monday: “What’s good is that I’m in at 21… and oh Meghan Markle is in at 22 – that’s awkward isn’t it?”

He then added: “Obviously none of my work colleagues made the list, unfortunately.”

Piers has waged war on Meghan after the former Suits star befriended him on Twitter and arranged for her co-star Rick Hoffman to go on Good Morning Britain in 2016.

Piers says Meghan pursued a friendship with him for almost a year and eventually asked if she could appear on the breakfast show when they finally met face to face and had drinks in London.

But she met Prince Harry soon after and he never heard from her again.

Piers says he was “ghosted” and revealed in a column for MailOnline last year: “Id been played by a couple of B-list actors, who were clearly just using me to advance their careers.

“But when someone more important and influential came along, in the shape of Prince Harry, I was instantly dumped like a sack of spuds.”

Piers has been very outspoken about his feelings towards Meghan ever since, previously accusing her of “hypocrisy” after she posted an inspiring quote by the Dalai Lama on Instagram.
