Piers Morgan claims Sarah Ferguson sent him a message of support

Piers Morgan seen outside the ITV Studios

Last week, in an interview with Billy Bush, Piers Morgan claimed that he’s had “some messages communicated to me on behalf of several members of the Royal Family.” He said he wouldn’t name names – which was rich because he demanded that the Duchess of Sussex name names – but he said that the members of the Windsor clan who contacted him expressed “gratitude that somebody was standing up.” Notably, Buckingham Palace declined to comment one way or the other, and a day later, Piers posed outside of Kensington Palace, lending to the theory that Tweedlebald or Tweedlekeen sent him a message of support, a message of encouragement to continue stalking and harassing a pregnant woman. Why the recap? Because Piers wrote this in his weekly column in the Daily Mail:

Not all Royal duchesses were as thrilled as Meghan ‘Pinocchio’ Markle to see me leave GMB.

‘People have said how much they miss your morning joy and humour,’ texted Sarah, Duchess of York, ‘get back out there!’

Perhaps we should start a new breakfast show together… ‘Morgy and Fergie in the Morning’, anyone?

[From The Daily Mail]

I saw some disbelief that Fergie would show any kind of support to Piers, but you’ve got to realize that Fergie has the moral center of a corpse fly. She’s a desperate wreck, clinging to whatever connection she has. Yes, she’s “friendly” with Harry and Meghan. But she’s also looking to forge alliances with anyone in the media, or anyone in general. So yeah, I believe Fergie probably contacted him and said something terrible. I also think it’s worth noting that Piers initially claimed that “several members” of the Windsor klan contacted him through intermediaries. Surely Fergie wasn’t the only one? She was just the expendable one, the one he could name freely while holding the Other Brother by the short hairs.

    Everytime I see his stupid face I want to hit him in the face.

    With a chair.

    • KAISER —- Way to go. photo of Piers with his fly unzipped is priceless. Do you think he was just performing an act of “self-service”? 🤣. As to Fergie, I think you absolutely nailed her with your comments. Yeah, I think she congratulated him and I think he’s got the proof. Fergie — as always —- plays both sides of the court BADLY and is so stupid she always leaves hard evidence. The photo of Morgan outside of KP was his shot across the bow to William. As for Fergie, as you said, she was expendable and so he released her name probably hoping to get Harry (as he’s in-country) fired up and cause a scene with Fergie so Morgan can get a Fergie exclusive on how irrationally upset Harry was with her over this.

      Damn, she looks like a stuffed sausage in that pink dress.

  2. Southern Fried says:

    This is why I’ve previously commented that the Yorks are not to be trusted by H&M. Note Pier’s fly, lol

  3. India says:

    In the top picture, Piers is standing there with his zipper down. Just Saying.

    • Aphra says:

      hahahahaha! good eye!

    • lemonylips says:

      I can’t stand his face so I just skipped the photo but now i have this vision in my head and it made me do a sad lol. Guess I only now realized that one of the reasons I disliked his mug was knowing deep down that he is a creature in a man suit with its zipper down.

    • Elizabeth Phillips says:

      I noticed, too.

  4. Angel says:

    If this is true, it’s really sad for Prince Harry because I know he likes her a lot.

    • Cecilia says:

      To be completely honest with you, i higly doubt it was fergie lol. Because:

      1. Fergie has done several interviews (including one with oprah) where she talks about royal life and the british media and that its defo not easy. If she did contact piers it would be highly hypocritical.
      2. Because she was barely mentioned in that interview and came away scotch free from it.
      3 because the keenbridges will through anyone under the bus to safe their own image and they defo don’t want to be linked to piers.

      Sarah is heavily dependent on the royal connection she has. And she doesn’t have the means to deny this ergo she an easy sacrifice

      • Becks1 says:

        Yeah, I just don’t think it was her. Maybe she did text him after he got fired, but I doubt she texted him and said “omg you are right Meghan is such a liar thank you SO MUCH for standing up to her!”

        Fergie knows how the institution works, she knows how you aren’t allowed to defend yourself, she knows how the press pits royal women against each other, she obviously understands the desire to set the record straight with Oprah – why would she thank Piers? It makes zero sense.

        Now of course Fergie is Fergie and she often doesn’t make sense, but this just really feels like Piers was under pressure to name names and he picked her because she doesn’t have the status to punch back.

      • Ginger says:

        I don’t think it was her either. She may have sent a message to him after he got fired. He posed in front of KP, so I think it was Will and Kate and possibly Carole. William will throw anyone under the bus to save himself.

      • Cecilia says:

        @becks1. I also think that if he would have right out said that charles and/or william (or even the middletons) thanked him nobody would have believed him and they would ask for proof. So he named sarah because its believable enough to the main public.

      • Islandgirl says:

        First it was Ann and now it is Fergie.

        Even if they were both involved in these 2 incidents. The main culprit…William.

      • BABSORIG says:

        I guess I’m the exception here but, believe Piers, LOL. Sarah did text him, but….there is absolutely nothing in the said text that says Sarah was expressing gratitude for Peirs attacking the Sussexes. On air Piers discussed other topics (other than the Sussexes) that some people liked. Even though those people might have disagreed on some topics, there was agreement on many and Sarah might be one of the his fans that likes some of his views. So, her texting him to get back on TV, at least IMO, was in relation to the topics that interested her, not necessarily his incessant bashing of the Sussexes and Meghan in particular. I could be wrong of course but I just didn’t read anything in those words that translated to “gratitude for defending them”.

    • Chelsea says:

      I agree @babsiorg. I do believe that she might have texted him to get back on the air but i dont think she was the one sending him “thanks” on behalf of the family. That was someone on KP but he is putting this out there because a) hes a cloutchaser and b) he wants to muddy the waters and let KP off the hook.

    his fly is unzipped.

    • Sue Denim says:

      first thing I saw too, ewwwwww… need to go bleach my eyes…

      • Andrew’s Nemesis says:

        @SueDenim Bleach your brain, more like.
        Even if he hadn’t been appalling to Meghan I would still choose the heat death of the universe over an evening in his company.

      • lanne says:

        @Andrews nemesis you made me laugh. An experience of like a google years is preferable to one night in PMs company!

  6. Osty says:

    Piers is such a liar , he was just asked to throw her under the bus. Not saying she isn’t a grifter but if she was the one who thanked him he would have said it the day he revealed it, he wouldn’t have tried to hide the person’s identity .They are just throwing her under the bus to protect bullyiam. Sarah said something I’m sure but she wasn’t the one piers was talking about

    • Becks1 says:

      This is what I think. To me this is similar to the whole “Princess Anne asked about the baby’s skin color.” They know Anne isn’t going to push back on that in the press, so why not just throw her under the bus. Piers knows Fergie isn’t going to push back (or if she does, no one will believe her) so he’s going to throw her under the bus. Like you said, I’m sure she said “something” but she isn’t the reason Piers was posing outside of KP.

      • Cecilia says:

        @becks1 i like how we are on the same wave lenght. I just said something similar in a response above. And the whole “anne asked about archie’s skintone” came into my mind directly when i saw the title.

      • lanne says:

        Perhaps Lady Louise and Viscount Severn will be blamed next? Little James Severn “innocently asked what color a mixed race baby would be. He was writing a report for science class and Mean Meghan made him cry!”

        Here royals, my gift to you, if you need ideas for others to blame instead of Will Duce.

    • TheOriginalMia says:

      Her text sounded rather innocuous. She said nothing about Meghan or supporting his vitriol against her. Was it wise to text him? Nope! But when has Fergie ever made a smart decision when it comes to reporters. Nah, she’s being thrown under the bus to shield the Cambridges and Carole.

    • Emily_C says:

      Finding the nearest woman to throw under the bus is the Royal way.

  7. Becks1 says:

    Well, I guess if she did actually text that, its technically a message of support, but I don’t see it the same thing as “thanking him for standing up to Meghan” or whatever he had said initially. Saying that he should get back out there is not the same thing as thanking him.

    I agree that Fergie has the moral compass of a fly, but she’s not going to be the family member most upset over the Oprah interview and the things said in it. Honestly I doubt she cared at all about the interview and probably is just mad that she doesnt get to see Piers ranting on the morning shows anymore.

    • Ginger says:

      Didn’t Piers say it was a senior member? Fergie is barely a member.

      • JT says:

        This is a good point. Fergie is definitely not a senior royal, having been divorced from the family for 20 years or so. This little nugget makes Morgan look like a liar and this reveal is a little bit of a let down. He’s over here taking pictures in front of KP and then gives up Fergie? Very anticlimactic.

      • Killfanora says:

        Fergie isn’t a member at all! She is divorced from the royals.

  8. S808 says:

    Like the them trying out Anne as the one who asked the questions about Archie’s skin I think they chose low hanging fruit to out. Unlike Anne’s situation, I believe Fergie did do this.

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      S808, I keep picturing in my mind the first time Anne and Willileaks meet face-to-face after that was published. She’ll probably cut him down to size–I doubt he’ll be throwing her under the bus in future.

  9. Harper says:

    Fergie is indiscriminate. She’s always shilling something and is staying on Pier’s good side to get some kind of publicity to make her very lame YouTube children’s stories take off so she can cash in. And isn’t Fergie the black sheep anyway? No points there.

  10. Lauren says:

    She might be feeling anxious since Philip died. Betty is the one keeping paying for Pedo Andy’s expenses, as soon as she is gone Chuck is going to toss him out and her out. I keep thinking that yes she texted him, but that she is also taking the fall for Willnot and Cannot. PM said messages, Fergie is just one.

  11. Tanguerita says:

    this man looks like he needs a bleach bath.

  12. Louise177 says:

    Funny that it’s Sarah and not a blood Royal. I do think some staff offered support but I doubt they spoke on behalf of the Royal.

    It’s annoying that it’s Meghan being called a liar when Harry said the same things.

  13. Miranda says:

    1,) The fact that Piers Goddamn Morgan made this claim automatically renders it dubious, right?

    2.) Even if it IS true…so? Does he want a cookie or something? Like, does he believe this is some sort of fast-track to a knighthood, receiving an endorsement from a woman who basically personifies the royal grift?

  14. sandy says:

    I’m sure Fergie did, and wasn’t the only one, but was expendable enough to throw under the bus. I truly hope though that Harry can see, while he might be closest to the york cousins, their parents are TRULY horrible and cannot be trusted. His cousins have let everything go and not done anything to indicate support or anything to Meghan. Maybe they are doing things behind the scenes, but it seems like they won’t even talk to their parents.

    This also just makes me think of when Fergie was laughing about Meghan learning to curtsey – she meant it as a hazing instead of being helpful. She went through awful things in the media etc, but instead of helping Meghan, she saw it as a chance to make herself look better.

    • Tessa says:

      Fergie is not one to talk. As a new wife according to reports she’d go into a room chanting curtsey curtsey curtsey.

    • HeatherC says:

      The York cousins won’t say anything to the media. Why? Because if either say something supportive, the BM will turn around and put a quick focus on Andrew and his nefarious deeds to undermine whatever credibility the women have. In the end, it would do more harm than good.

  15. Andrew’s Nemesis says:

    Fergie is, predictably, trash.
    By the way, Piss: your fly is undone.

    • Eleonora says:

      She also seems like such a dim-wit.

      • Sid says:

        And greedy beyond anything. Considering all of the commercial opportunities she has had over the long years since she was booted out of the royal ratchet family, with sound financial advisors there is no reason she shouldn’t have been able to live relatively comfortably. But greed and stupidity has her out here grifting left and right and helping her “alleged” sex offender and not-really-an-ex in dodgy deals. A mess.

  16. equality says:

    Joy and humour?

  17. Amy Bee says:

    Yeah she’s not the only one. KP couldn’t been happy when they saw that tweet of Piers outside the palace.

    • Miranda says:

      The KP photo tweet was priceless, though. Like a loser who poses next to an expensive sports car that happens to be parked on the street, then slaps that baby up on his Tindr profile, trying to fool women into believing its his.

  18. L84Tea says:

    I really hope this isn’t true, as it would make me really sad for H&M since they are close to Eugenie, and this could make things really awkward and awful. Not to mention, hey Fergie, they just gave your daughter and grandchild a place to live–could you maybe not crap all over them??

    • QwietStorm says:

      Isn’t the torment of Meghan the main smokescreen used to divert publicity away from Andrew? So Meghan has indirectly and inadvertently done Andrew a favor, it seems. Another reason not to “crap all over” her.

      • Lyds says:

        @Quietstorm, I see it as the opposite: Fergie still lives w Andrew; Andrew is in deep pedo crap/verge of losing many privileges; Meghan diverts attention from Andrew; Piers heaps abuse on Meghan, making her the center of attention always; Fergie thanks Piers and wants him to stay on air forever.

        Also, as many said above, Fergie needs the RF to monetize her connections. If the RF is dismantled or irrelevant, she loses any royal-adjacent value. H&M shook that rotten foundation to its core, so I believe that Fergie was shook. Nobody is going to see this headline and think more or less of her; it is to be expected.

    • Elizabeth says:

      Andrew and Sarah have been and will always be deeply gross, awful people consumed by greed. They are peas in a pod. The fact some people want to pretend Andrew and Sarah are normal parents or they don’t have a toxic family life is weird to me. It’s not normal/healthy for your dad to be a pedophile/rapist/trafficker. It’s not normal/healthy for your mom and the whole rest of your family (and the Murdoch media) to sweep it under the rug and protect him.

      Harry and Meghan didn’t cause this and they can’t stop it. I do feel somewhat bad for Andrew and Sarah’s children, but they’re adults and they have a moral, social responsibility not to protect a criminal, and they’re choosing to shield him. It’s actually horrific. It says a LOT about the impact the royal family has on ordinary decency.

    • QwietStorm says:

      @Lyds: I meant that Meghan shouldn’t be crapped on. That Fergie shouldn’t crap on Meghan. It was in agreement with the comment above by L84Tea.
      Maybe I wasn’t clear. Anyway, Fergie is her own worst enemy. She’ll get what she deserves someday.

  19. aquarius64 says:

    What makes this bogus is Fergie is NOT royal. She is not a Windsor by blood and she lost her HRH after she divorced Andrew. Meghan STILL has her HRH; it’s not used commercially but it is on British legal papers (see Fail lawsuit). Meghan outranks Fergie. Fergie is not even on the Royal Family website.

  20. Sofia says:

    I also don’t think she’s the only one. I think he said “senior members” and Fergie hasn’t been a senior member for over 20 years. Piers may not care about semantics and just said “senior” to give Fergie some more legitimacy.

    It’s a shame if it’s true. Harry and Meghan were the ones who invited her to their wedding when she had been persona non grata in the previous years, let her daughter, son-in-law and grandson live for free in their house and Meghan was nice about Fergie in the interview.

  21. JT says:

    Let’s say it was Fergie who thanked him. And? This isn’t the smoking gun he’s making it out to be. It’s Fergie. She’s an unreliable grifter, nearly as balls deep as Andrew, having taken money from Epstein as well, and she’s been known to do things for a quick buck. This his little “reveal” doesn’t make Morgan look like Walter Cronkite or something, it makes him look like the smarmy dude he is.

    And for what it’s worth, I also believe they are just throwing Fergie under the bus. She could have said it sure, I don’t think I would be surprised. However, she is an easy target, she doesn’t have a lot of power to push back, and she doesn’t really have a reputation to ruin. I also don’t think it made the splash that he thought it would. Did anybody care about this? If he wants to prove he has friends in high places, Fergie is not the one to prove it.

  22. Ennn says:

    Id be disappointed if this was true but not that surprised. It’s Fergie.

    But I have to wonder what is Piers getting out of this? What are the Cambridges offering him that was good enough to make him leave Good Morning Britain? Piers has always been obnoxious dingbat but he’s somehow managed to keep a respectable media career going for years and he’s kind of throwing all that out the window for #TeamPalace. Why???

    • booboocita says:

      I don’t think the Cambs promised him anything. Him storming off the GWB set, combined with his abuse of Meghan and all the complaints the network was receiving about it, was the proximate cause of his being fired. He didn’t quit; he was dismissed. Everything that’s come from his rotted brain and mouth since is just his attempt to restore himself to some semblance of respectability. And he may yet get another prominent, well-paid job in media, but his reputation is permanently damaged. I doubt he realizes that, though.

      • FicklePickle says:

        I don’t think he’s going to get another prominent and well-paid job in media. The Potential Lawsuit Calculus seems to be shifting out of his favor…primarily because he’s an ass that is incapable of either keeping his mouth shut or self-editing his speech.

        He shit the bed at CNN by harassing every guest on his show about gun control laws to the point that his ratings were in the toilet so the US is pretty much out, and it seems that the phone-hacking thing is coming back to bite him in the UK (so even more reason to not want to hire him). Maybe he’s not too racist for Australia?

  23. Agreatreckoning says:

    The deranged PM will next be naming names of the corgis-who are royal family members.

  24. Nivz says:

    There’s gotta be an ulterior motive behind this reveal. It immediately makes things uncomfortable between the Sussexes and Eugenie, who are said to be close. Harry is staying at Frogmore, possibly the Brooksbanks are there as well. Why not F that up for Harry too?

  25. Nyro says:

    Fergus is a desperate person for sure but I’m not buying this from Piers. He’s a known liar, first off. But mostly, I think after he outed the Cambridges with that photo in front of Kensington Palace, he got a call telling him to keep their names out of his mouth and that he’d better direct folks’ eyes elsewhere. Fergie doesn’t have the power to call him out and no one in the family will correct this lie for her. Plus it’s a way to drive a wedge between HM and the York daughters, the only royals, outside of the queen, who they seem to talk to regularly. Fergie’s just too easy a scapegoat on this one for me to believe it.

  26. Murphy says:

    Sarah Ferguson is not a royal duchess anymore.

    • Sid says:

      For now. Let’s see if she and the “alleged” sex offender actually do get remarried now that Philip has passed.

  27. girl_ninja says:

    Kaiser *chefs kiss* perfection for choosing a photo with that unfortunate creatures fly down.

    That’s his life isn’t it? Him walking around town with his fly down thinking he’s the smarts and most put together man out there.

    And this comment:
    Not all Royal duchesses were as thrilled as Meghan ‘Pinocchio’ Markle to see me leave GMB.

    This thirsty b*tch really thinks that Duchess Meghan is thinking about him?

  28. Market Street Minifig says:

    Even when I’m not interested in a particular story, I have to click on it to see what photos Kaiser has chosen to accompany it. On point as usual lol

  29. My3cents says:

    I guess being a friend with a lunatic harasser stalker is an upgrade from pedophile human trafficker?

  30. Tessa says:

    Fergie made it clear she was “hurt” that the Cambridges did not invite her to their wedding. The Sussexes DID invite her. So is true she more or less “sold out” The Sussexes. Piers needs to get over himself.

  31. February-Pisces says:

    Meghan mentioned fergie in the interview in a nice way. Nothing bad at all. I think fergie has indirectly defended Meghan in the past when she said how hard it was always being compared and pitted against Diana by the media. Also Meghan and harry invited her to their wedding, in fact harry insisted. William didn’t and I don’t think he even speaks to her. Also harry and Meghan have let eugenie live in their house for free.

    Anyway to I think fergie is shameless enough to text piers, yeah I do, fergie does whatever she has to do to survive and hustle. But it’s not her. Piers said that it was several senior royals and they thanked him for defending them. I don’t think piers has even defended fergie. But fergie is expendable, she is just someone they can throw under the bus, just like they did with Anne. Anyway nice try William, I wonder what he will do when he’s run out of family members to chuck under the bus, cos he’s done it to all of them.

  32. Nina says:

    I guess he was told to clean up his lies and Fergie was a convenient foil. This man is lower than a sewer rat.

  33. Lottie says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he was making the whole thing up to keep media attention on him, and possibly because he likes the power the ability to make such statements and be believed. Warning shots fired indeed, but in a different way – “see what I can say and be believed…”

  34. Catherine says:

    I definitely think Fergie texted him but I don’t think she is who he was talking about when he said he was getting supports from representatives of senior royals. I think he was referencing people connected to KP/BP and Clarence House. He outed Fergie as a distraction. Just as Lady C outing Anne was a distraction.

  35. Rnot says:

    I don’t buy it. Fergie isn’t terribly bright but she’s very mercenary. Harry and Meghan are close to her daughters and let Eugenie live in their house. They invited Fergie to their wedding. During the interview they spoke kindly about her and didn’t mention Andrew. They’re also on their way to being billionaires with valuable connections completely outside the royal ecosystem. I just don’t think she’d choose to alienate them with the future of royal support for the York family looking so uncertain.

    Piers chose the name he thought would be least damaging to the royals after he caught blowback from the photo outside Kensington Palace. Both Piers Morgan and Prince William seem to be decompensating and it’s not going to end well.

  36. SenseOfTheAbsurd says:

    I don’t know who should be more embarrassed.

  37. Donna B. says:

    There was a blind item a few years ago at the time of the 2018 Australian documentary hit job against Meghan & it was stated, it was Fergie who was a behind the scenes contributor. Don’t know if it is true, but i do believe Fergie is two-faced & to not be trusted. Somebody here from another post stated how Eugenie would always delete the negative comments made about her mother on her Instagram, but leave the negative vitriol about Meghan intact. Don’t trust none of them.

  38. Well Wisher says:

    It is interesting to note that while the Sussexes chose their well being over the toxic work environment created by BTM and relative(s) and left, it is the bullies and their enablers who are falling apart.
    He is still auditoning for a TV gig meanwhile Bill is hiding behind Sarah.

  39. QwietStorm says:

    @Lyds: I meant that Meghan shouldn’t be crapped on. That Fergie shouldn’t crap on Meghan. It was in agreement with the comment above by L84Tea.
