Meghan made the bombshell allegation in a new trailer for her interview with Oprah Winfrey – declaring “I’m ready to talk”.
The clip prompted Piers, a fierce critic of the Duchess, to write: "Liberated from royal duty.. but continues to exploit her royal titles to make millions of $$$$.
"The Duchess of Disingenuousness."
He also compared Meghan to Wallis Simpson, an American socialite who caused sensation by marrying Edward VIII.
Sharing a picture of the two women side by side, Piers tweeted: "I think it’s maybe time to ban our Princes from marrying American women."
The sensational new claims come as…
- 10-aides are 'lining up' to help the Palace with their investigation into the bullying claims
- Meghan's friends said the Oprah interview had brought 'relief' and been 'cathartic'
- Meghan had 'furious rows' with palace aides over freebie designer clothes
- Meghan's pal accused the palace of racism – and said the star 'knew it would get ugly' before the Oprah interview aired
- Harry 'spoke to his wife about her behaviour when talking to staff' – even 'gently admonishing her' for the way she spoke to them
- The former actress 'turned and hissed' at a member of staff during a row in a Fiji market – leaving the employee 'in tears'
Both Meghan and Wallis fled the UK with their husbands and both stepped down from royal life – with Prince Edward even abdicating the thrown for Wallis.
The women also share a striking resemblance in the photos shared by Piers, wearing a black silk dress with a white floral print and their hair slicked back in a middle parting.
It comes after Meghan criticised the constraints she faced when a working royal and said it was "liberating" to be able to "say yes" to Oprah Winfrey's request for an interview.
In a brand new clip, released by CBS this afternoon, Meghan claims she wasn’t even allowed to speak to Oprah in 2018 without someone listening in.
The 39-year-old mother said she was forced to turn down the interview, saying: “That wasn’t my choice to make.”
She also told Oprah that it was tough to go from having a "really independent life" to one that was within the "construct" of the Royal Family.
Meghan said that she and Prince Harry now have the "ability to make our own choices" in a way that they couldn't three years ago.
'WASN'T MY CHOICE TO MAKE'
In the new clip, Oprah says: "I called you either February or March 2018 before the wedding asking, would you please give me an interview and you said sorry it’s not the right time.
"And finally, we get to sit down and have this conversation."
The 39-year-old responds: "I remember that conversation very well. I wasn’t even allowed to have that conversation with you personally, right. There had to be people from the… sitting there."
When asked if people were in the room while they were having the conversation, Meghan says: "yeah, even on that call."
Telling the talk-show host why now is the right time, Meghan says: "Well, so many things. That we’re on the other side of a lot of… a lot of life experience that’s happened.
"And also that we have the ability to make our own choices in a way that I couldn’t have said yes to you then. That wasn’t my choice to make.
"So, as an adult who lived a really independent life to then go into this construct that’s umm… different than I think what people imagine it to be, it’s really liberating to be able to have the right and the privilege in some ways to be able to say yes."
She continues: "I’m ready to talk. To be able to just make a choice on your own. And to be able to speak for yourself."
The bombshell interview, conducted by talk-show powerhouse Oprah Winfrey, will be aired on CBS in the US on Sunday night, and then in the UK on ITV on Monday.
It is set to allow Meghan and Harry the freedom to "speak their truth".
