Morgan quit Good Morning Britain on Tuesday after Ofcom announced it intends to investigate the comments made he made about the duchess.

Meghan Markle is said to have submitted her own complaint however it is believed the details address the general impact Morgan's comments could have on people struggling with their mental health.

"I don’t believe a word she says. I wouldn’t believe her if she read me a weather report," said Morgan on Good Morning Britain earlier this week.

Piers Morgan takes questions from the media while walking his daughter to school in London on Wednesday morning.

On Wednesday morning, Morgan addressed journalists outside his home and said he has no regrets about what he said about the duchess.

"I had a good chat with ITV and we agreed to disagree.

“I’m just going to take it easy and see how we go.

“I believe in freedom of speech, I believe in the right to be allowed to have an opinion.

“If people want to believe Meghan Markle, that’s entirely their right."

Morgan added: “I don’t believe almost anything that comes out of her mouth and I think the damage she’s done to the British monarchy and to the Queen at a time when Prince Philip is lying in hospital is enormous and, frankly, contemptible.

“If I have to fall on my sword for expressing an honestly-held opinion about Meghan Markle and that diatribe of bilge that she came out with in that interview, so be it.”
