UPDATED 3/9/21 AT 1:30 P.M. ET: Piers Morgan has decided to leave Good Morning Britain just hours after his on-air dispute with co-anchor Alex Beresford. “Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain,” said the network in a statement. “ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add.”

As always, Piers Morgan can dish it, but he cannot take it. On Tuesday morning, the British television personality stormed off Good Morning Britain when his co-host Alex Beresford condemned his treatment of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. Beresford called out Morgan for his “absolutely diabolical behavior” towards Meghan and Harry, both of whom spoke frankly about their mental health struggles in a bombshell interview with Oprah that aired Sunday night. “Pierce spouts off on a regular basis, and we all have to sit there and listen,” said Beresford, as Morgan walked off set behind him.

The Good Morning Britain row came after days of Morgan’s attacks, both on-air and off, on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who told Oprah that they stepped away from the royal family after their repeated requests for help went unanswered. The couple also revealed that a member of the family made a racist comment about their son Archie, and that the constant negative press in the British tabloids pushed Meghan to consider suicide.

While Americans praised Harry and Meghan for their openness, the British press was far less kind. Morgan led the pack with a scathing op-ed in the Daily Mail, and he doubled down Monday and Tuesday morning on Good Morning Britain. The TV personality ripped Harry for his inability to move on from his mother’s death, whereas “William went through the same thing and he’s managed to come to terms with the media and he works with the media.”

After two mornings (and three years) of criticism, Beresford finally had enough. “I hear Piers say William has gone through the same thing but, do you know what, siblings experience tragedy in their life and one will be absolutely fine and brush it off and the other will not be able to deal with it so strongly and that is clearly what has happened with Harry in this situation,” he said this morning. “He walked behind his mother’s coffin at a tender, tender age in front of the globe. That is going to shape a young boy for the rest of his life, so I think we all need to take a step back.”

“I understand that you don’t like Meghan Markle. You’ve made it so clear a number of times on this program,” continued Beresford. “And I understand you’ve got a personal relationship with Meghan Markle, or had one, and she cut you off. “She’s entitled to cut you off if she wants to. Has she said anything about you since she cut you off? I don’t think she has but yet you continue to trash her.”

At that point, Morgan stood up from the table. “Okay, I’m done with this,” he said. “Sorry. No… sorry, can’t do this.”

As he walked off the set, Beresford turned to his co-hosts and asked for backup. “6:30 to 7 o’clock yesterday was incredibly hard to watch. Incredibly hard to watch,” he said. “This is — he has the ability to come in here and talk from a position where he doesn’t fully understand.”

After a commercial break, Morgan returned to the table, but he wasn’t quite ready to let the moment slide. He accused Beresford of committing a “personally derogatory monologue aimed at one of your colleagues” to the airwaves, prompting his his co-host to explain that that wasn’t his intention. “When you are a lighter shade of Black people gain confidence and feel they can say things to you that they wouldn’t say to a Black person, and that is my experience of all of this,” said Beresford. “You have to think about how it feels on the receiving end.”
