Piers Morgan questioned Meghan Markle’s claim about an alleged secret wedding that took place days before the official event, according to a Monday tweet.
The royal couple told Oprah Winfrey during an interview that the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby secretly married them three days prior to their wedding.
“They did not marry three days earlier in front of the Archbishop of Canterbury,” Former chief clerk at the Faculty Office Stephen Borton said, The Daily Mail reported. “What happened there on 19 May 2018 and was seen by millions around the world was the official wedding as recognized by the Church of England and the law.” The ceremony the couple was referring to could have been “a simple rehearsal,” Borton suggested.
“Do we still have to believe her?,” the TV host tweeted, reposting the Daily Mail article.

Morgan initially criticized Markle and Prince Harry for claims made during the interview on March 8. “This interview is an absolutely disgraceful betrayal of the Queen and the Royal Family,” Morgan tweeted at the time.
The host also stormed off the set of “Good Morning Britain” after cohost Alex Beresford criticized Morgan for his original comments.
Morgan then left the show hours after he stormed off, ITV announced. “Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain,” ITV said in a statement.
