PIERS Morgan will make his first TV appearance since leaving Good Morning Britain later today.

Last month, the controversial presenter left ITV's GMB after comments he made about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

It comes as a royal author claimed Meghan may never return to the UK again.

Anna Pasternak has said that she thinks "in some ways, Brits feel betrayed" by the Duchess, who she believes will avoid coming back to the country.

“Will Meghan Markle return to the UK? My speculative answer would be no, not if she can help it,” she told Fox News.

“Sadly, I cannot see her ever becoming a loved and cherished member of the royal family with the unified respect and adoration of the British people.

“I think that ship has sailed."

    Meghan’s relationship with her dad was clearly ‘complicated”, claimed her childhood pal.

    Josh Silverstein met Meghan at a church summer camp when they were both 13.

    Speaking to US Weekly, he said: “I knew her dad growing up as kids.

    HARRY IS ‘TRYING TO KEEP UP’ WITH MEGHAN’

    A celeb agent has claimed Prince Harry is “trying to keep up” after bagging his new corporate jobs.

    The Duke of Sussex has been confirmed as the chief impact officer at BetterUp, a mental health services business worth £1.25billion.

    It comes after he bagged a role as commissioner on information disorder at the Aspen Institute, a US think tank.

    Jonathan Shalit told The Telegraph: “So for Harry to keep up with his wife, he’s got to find his own name and identity and this is the start.

    “He doesn’t need celebrity. When you’re Royal, you’re the biggest celebrity in the world. But what this does is allow Harry to have relevance.”

    QUESTIONS OVER HOW HARRY OBTAINED US VISA

    Harry now has two jobs and TV and radio projects in the US, sparking questions how he obtained a visa.

    But his work with Invictus Games for injured squaddies could potentially qualify him – and his recent bombshell Oprah interview earned millions for the TV industry.

    Royal experts have also claimed that palace officials will watch Harry’s new jobs closely.

    Russell Myers told True Royalty TV’s The Royal Beat: “There is the argument that if he is ‘Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex’ in all the published materials for [the firm], is that trading off the royal brand which they said they wouldn’t do to uphold the values of The Queen?

    “So it is very debatable at the moment. People at the Palace will be watching this very, very closely.”

    HARRY ‘WILL CONTINUE TO SERVE COMMUNITY FOR REST OF LIFE’

    Asked about Harry and Meghan’s Oprah interview, Chalmers said: “Harry has made it very clear, not just throughout that interview but before it, that he wants to continue to serve the greater community – especially the ones he cares dearly about, including the armed forces community.

    “Harry will continue to serve because he is a veteran and that is what he is doing now, albeit from a different place. All of us are in different places now.”

    PIERS MORGAN TO SQUARE UP TO MEGAN TOMORROW

    He will also lift the lid on his clash with her and his explosive exit from Good Morning Britain.

    The 56-year-old quit ITV's breakfast show rather than apologise for saying he did not believe Meghan's claims about the royals — prompting her to complain to ITV's boss.

    Piers will give an hour-long interview to Tucker Carlson on Fox News.

    Yesterday, Piers wrote on Twitter: "Time for America to hear MY truth."

    Tucker, 51, said: "Piers was banished from TV for asking the question 'How is it that the most privileged people in our society get away with posing as the most oppressed?'"

    But he'll risk his friendship with Prince Harry.

    His close pal Sinitta says Simon is being "secretive" about his plans after the pair were pictured on a walk with the former Good Morning Britain star.

    She told Entertainment Daily: "I don't know what's going to happen now with the scandal with Harry, Meghan and Piers.

    "The thing is, Simon is also good friends with Prince Harry so I honestly don't know. I would imagine it would be quite tricky because he's friends with both of them."

    QUEEN IS ‘SAD NOT ANGRY’ AFTER HARRY AND MEGHAN INTERVIEW

    In Meghan and Harry’s bombshell Oprah interview, both had good words to say about the head of the Firm – with the Duchess sharing personal fond memories with millions of viewers.

    And the Queen herself was “sad not angry” by Harry’s interview but has privately pledged to stand by him.

    The Queen ordered a private family investigation into the claims which included accusations a unnamed member of the family raised “concerns” about the skin colour of their children.

    Her Maj is said not to be furious with her grandson and Meghan who she described in her statement as “much-loved family members”.

    'WILLS AND HARRY UNITED BY DI STATUE'

    It is the first indication of a healing of the huge rift which deepened after Harry and Meghan's explosive Oprah Winfrey TV interview.

    Concern has remained over whether the brothers will come together at the unveiling of the Diana statue at Kensington Palace on July 1 — on what would have been her 60th birthday.

    But we can reveal the sculptor has sent it to be cast following feedback from the princes.

    However, it is not known if that was since the March 7 Oprah chat.

    A source close to sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley said: "I know he did work closely with the boys and I think it will be incredible."

    They told the Telegraph: “There was a constant dialogue from the couple along the lines of: ‘Why can’t we do this? You can’t stop us from doing what we want to do’.

    “They were calling the shots and would be the ones instructing the press office on what line to put out.”

    It comes after reports the couple were in talks with a billion-dollar US streaming service a year before they formally cut ties with the royal family.

    AUSTRALIAN MP CALLS FOR OWN STATE HEAD AFTER MEGHAN & HARRY QUIT ROYALS

    An Australian MP has called for the country be able to pick its own head of state following Meghan and Harry’s departure from Royal family.

    Matt Thistlethwaite told the Express: “If Harry and Meghan can quit the Royal Family, I don’t see why the Australian people can’t do the same.

    “The Harry and Meghan interview highlighted just how out of touch the British Royal Family has become to the lives of most Australians.

    “We need to begin a serious discussion about recognising our independence and maturity, the fact that we govern ourselves make our own decisions, and we should reflect that by having one of our own as a head of state.

    “At the end of the day, Australia’s future has very little to do with the British royal family.”
