Piers Morgan's Lack Of Sympathy Towards Meghan Markle Called Out By Susanna Reid
We’re sure it will come as no great surprise to you that Monday morning’s edition of Good Morning Britain saw Piers Morgan pretty much in full meltdown about Meghan Markle’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, after it aired in the US.However, even his co-host Susanna Reid seemed shocked at just how far his lack of sympathy for the Duchess of Sussex extended, after Piers dismissed Meghan’s comments about the suicidal feelings she experienced at the height of her crisis in the monarchy.In the aftermath of the interview, Susanna said during Monday’s GMB: “They have dropped bombshells, no doubt about it. But they have described what they have said was an almost unsurvivable experience. “They have both said that they felt controlled within the royal family, that they felt trapped, that they felt at risk, that their security was removed.“Race, obviously, they claimed, played a part in that, and they made very serious accusations, as Piers says. But Meghan has, within this interview, said it got so bad that she was suicidal. And I think a lot of people will feel extremely concerned about that.”The show then cut to a clip of Oprah asking Meghan whether she had experienced “suicidal thoughts”, to which the Duchess responded: “Yes. This was very, very clear and very scary.“I went to the institution. And I said that I needed to go somewhere to get help. I said that I’d never felt this way before, and I need to go somewhere. And I was told that I couldn’t, because it wouldn’t be good for the institution.” “OK, OK,” let’s have the names, Piers said immediately. “Who did you go to? What did they say to you? I’m sorry, I don’t believe a word she says.”“Well that’s a pretty unsympathetic reaction to someone who has expressed those thoughts,” Susanna said, while her co-presenter continued to talk over her.“I wouldn’t believe her if she read me a weather report, and the fact that she’s fired up this onslaught against our royal family, I think is contemptible,” he said, speaking over Susanna throughout. ‘Anyone who says they were left feeling suicidal, you have to feel sympathy for them.’ @susannareid100 responds to @piersmorgan’s question of whether she feels ‘genuine sympathy for Meghan’ after watching that interview.Watch the full interview on @ITV at 9pm. pic.twitter.com/lht1Xh572p— Good Morning Britain (@GMB) March 8, 2021Later, Piers asked his co-host whether she felt “genuine sympathy” for Meghan and Harry after watching “that load of bilge”, to which she told him: “Anyone who says that they were left feeling suicidal, and didn’t want to be alive anymore, you have to feel sympathy for them.”Piers echoed similar thoughts all the way through Monday’s GMB, kicking off the show by stating he was “angry to the point of falling over” and “sickened” by the interview.‘I’m sickened by what I’ve had to watch.’ ‘It’s a 2 hour trash-athon of everything the Queen has worked so hard for, while her husband is in hospital.'@piersmorgan starts the show with his reaction to the Harry and Meghan interview. Tune in tonight @itv at 9pm. pic.twitter.com/AIXKvXtIoq— Good Morning Britain (@GMB) March 8, 2021“A number of people might be upset and moved by what they’ve heard,” Susanna pointed out.“You can defend it in a minute,” he responded. “I’m just going to say what I’m going to say. This is a two-hour trash-a-thon of our royal family, of the monarchy, of everything the Queen has worked so hard for, and it’s all been done as Prince Philip lies in hospital. They trash everybody. They basically make out the entire family are a bunch of white supremacists…”Susanna then insisted: “They didn’t use that phrase.”Piers replied: “They didn’t name which one it was, they just throw it out there, so it could be any member of the royal family, and Harry says, ‘I’ll never say who it was’. Well, you’d better say it fast.”The moment Piers was referring to came when Meghan told Oprah that an unnamed member of the royal family had made racist comments to Prince Harry about their son, Archie.“[They had] concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he was born… and what that would mean or look like,” Meghan revealed.Piers said: “I think the fact she is trying to portray the royal family as a bunch of racists is the most incendiary charge I’ve seen against the royal family, certainly in my career as a journalist.“And it appears to be based on one conversation with an unnamed member of the royal family, at the very start when they first got together. We don’t know anything about the context.”‘Anyone who says they were left feeling suicidal, you have to feel sympathy for them.’ @susannareid100 responds to @piersmorgan’s question of whether she feels ‘genuine sympathy for Meghan’ after watching that interview.Watch the full interview on @ITV at 9pm. pic.twitter.com/lht1Xh572p— Good Morning Britain (@GMB) March 8, 2021The matter was raised again during an interview with frequent GMB guest Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu, who defended Meghan against Piers’ claims.Referring to the Queen, Dr Shola questioned: “What kind of grandmother would be so close to Harry, but then not use her power and influence to protect them from the racist media coverage?“What kind of grandmother would protect her own son, Prince Andrew, from the potential crime of raping a minor, but would do jack all to protect Harry and Meghan – especially, I have no doubt, that she’d have heard about the suicidal thoughts and the help and support [Meghan] needed.“And then you sit there, hamming on about how the royal institution is not racist. Are you of your godforsaken mind?”Piers then interjected, saying he found her comments “disgraceful”, with Dr Shola urging him to let her finish her point.“Listen, you might learn something,” Dr Shola told the GMB host. “The royal family as an institution is rooted in colonialism, white supremacy and racism. The legacy is right there.“So now you’re surprised that a comment would be made by several members of the royal family about how dark Archie’s skin is?”“It’s not several members, actually,” Piers then insisted. “You can’t spew lies. Are we allowed to engage in any of this? You’re not stopping.”Dr Shola then accused Piers of being more outraged at Harry and Meghan “speaking their truth than the actual outrage of racism”.“I think what you just said about the Queen is disgusting,” Piers then told his guest.“You are disgusting,” she then replied. ‘You want to deny the Royal Family has any racist undertones or actions simply because you’re in love with the Queen?’‘What a load of race-baiting nonsense.’ The debate gets very heated between @piersmorgan and @SholaMos1. pic.twitter.com/6XaH6RrDlV— Good Morning Britain (@GMB) March 8, 2021Later, Dr Shola told him: “You are such a disappointment. I wish one day you would surprise me. You constantly use your platform as a wealthy, white privileged man, with power and influence to aggravate and escalate the bigoted, sexist, racist and misogynistic [treament of Meghan Markle]. And you do it so shamelessly.”“What a load of race-baiting nonsense,” Piers interrupted. “We have done more on racial issues on this show than any other show on television.”During the show, GMB weather presenter Alex Beresford – who previously clashed with Piers over the weekend on social media – tweeted: “I’m sorry but @piersmorgan is way off the mark!”I’m sorry but @piersmorgan is way off the mark!— Alex Beresford (@alexberesfordTV) March 8, 2021Last week, Susanna accused her co-host of being “obsessed” with the Sussexes, and having “such a negative filter” towards them.Meanwhile, Dr Shola accused Piers last year of having a “personal vendetta” against Meghan Markle, telling him: “You are a man, privileged to have power and influence, and you are using your platform so irresponsibly to spout out this personal vendetta with nasty and vile comments knowing fully well that your words are containing bigotry, misogyny, sexism and racism.“You don’t take responsibility for how you have contributed to the so-called royal crisis.”Good Morning Britain airs every weekday from 6am, while Oprah’s interview with Meghan and Harry will be shown at 9pm on Monday night, both on ITV.Useful websites and helplinesMind, open Monday to Friday, 9am-6pm on 0300 123 3393.Samaritans offers a listening service which is open 24 hours a day, on 116 123 (UK and ROI - this number is FREE to call and will not appear on your phone bill).CALM (the Campaign Against Living Miserably) offer a helpline open 5pm-midnight, 365 days a year, on 0800 58 58 58, and a webchat service.The Mix is a free support service for people under 25.

Lewes FC's Claire Rafferty: 'I hope one day every day is International Women’s Day'
The former Lioness and Maggie Murphy talk about their work at Lewes FC, the club with equal investment in their women’s and men’s teams“I hope one day we don’t have to have special days and every single day is International Women’s Day,” says Claire Rafferty. It is a sentence that sums up the former England player’s involvement with Lewes FC as a board member, because in their corner of East Sussex equality is not a gimmick or a T-shirt slogan; it is enshrined.In 2017 the fan-owned club committed to equal investment, support and pay for their women’s and men’s teams. In 2021, 100 years after women’s football was banned by the FA, and 50 years after the ban was lifted, Lewes are still the only club in Europe to have taken the stance. “It’s shocking really, isn’t it?,” says Rafferty, who was a part-time analyst with Deutsche Bank when she played and now works for her former club Chelsea, in the commercial team. “I’m always very proud to say that I’m involved in Lewes because of it. It has been quite nice going back into training, and then just getting a gauge for the culture of the team and the environment, that’s where you can see it working. It’s easy to say we’re treating the teams equally on paper.” Continue reading...

Megan Markle Reveals Heartbreaking Truth About Red Carpet Picture That Still ‘Haunts’ Her
Megan Markle has revealed she is “still haunted” by a photograph of herself at a red carpet event while pregnant with her son Archie.The Duchess of Sussex appeared tearful during her and Prince Harry’s extensive interview with Oprah Winfrey when she described the hidden pain she was carrying during the public appearance in January 2019.Photographs taken at the premiere of Cirque du Soleil’s Totem show at the Royal Albert Hall show a beaming Meghan wearing a full-length navy sequin Roland Mouret gown, holding hands with her suited husband.But Meghan said the images – described as “so great” by a friend who shared them with her – had a deeply upsetting context because she had just told her husband she did not want to live anymore.She told Oprah: “One of the things that still haunts me is this photograph that someone had sent me, we had to go to an official event at the Royal Albert Hall.“A friend said: ‘I know you don’t look at pictures, but oh my god, you guys look so great’ and sent it to me.“I zoomed in and what I saw was the truth of what that moment was, because right before we had to leave for that (event), I had just had that conversation with Harry that morning.”Oprah asked: “That you don’t want to be alive anymore?”Meghan said: “Yeah. It was like: These are the thoughts I am having in the middle of the night that are very clear, and I’m scared because this is very real. This is methodical, and it is not who I am.”Meghan said Harry suggested she did not attend the event, but she told her husband she “can’t be left alone”.She said: “And we went. And that picture, if you zoom in, what I see is how tightly his knuckles are gripped around me.“You can see the whites of our knuckles because we are smiling and doing our job, but we are both just trying to hold on.“Every time those lights went down in that royal box, I was just weeping.“He [Harry] was gripping my hand and it was ‘Okay an intermission’s coming, the lights are about to come on, everyone’s looking at us again’ … and you had to just be ‘on’ again.“You have no idea what’s going on for someone behind closed doors. You’ve no idea.“Even the people that smile the biggest smiles and shine the brightest lights, it seems.”CBS Presents Oprah with Meghan and Harry airs on ITV at 9pm tonight and on ITV Hub.Useful websites and helplinesMind, open Monday to Friday, 9am-6pm on 0300 123 3393.Samaritans offers a listening service which is open 24 hours a day, on 116 123 (UK and ROI - this number is FREE to call and will not appear on your phone bill).CALM (the Campaign Against Living Miserably) offer a helpline open 5pm-midnight, 365 days a year, on 0800 58 58 58, and a webchat service.The Mix is a free support service for people under 25.

Recovering from cancer has showed me the difficulty of 'returning to normal' | Suleika Jaouad
Once the pandemic is under control, many will want to carry on like before, but I know from experience that may not be possibleAlmost a decade ago, on the morning of my 23rd birthday, I awoke with a pain in my abdomen. I was undergoing treatment for leukemia, my chance of long-term survival 35%. I’d spent the past month in isolation, meaning I wasn’t allowed to leave my hospital room. All visitors donned face masks, and the air was perfumed with the scent of antiseptic and a sense of hypervigilance. Back then, I felt alone in this experience. Of course I wasn’t to know, almost a decade later, that dealing with quarantine, the fear of infection and the sense of distance from others would become so widespread as to be almost universal.That morning, I didn’t mention the pain to anyone. In fact, I was so desperate to go home that I struggled out of bed and into the chair next to it. I was hoping to embody a picture of health and strength, so the doctors would see no reason to keep me. When they came by, they were half-convinced. I seemed to be improving, they said, but they’d check back later and decide on whether to discharge me then. Continue reading...
