PIERS MORGAN called for the Archbishop of Canterbury to be sacked

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
PIERS MORGAN has sarcastically called for the Archbishop of Canterbury to be sacked for “disbelieving” Meghan Markle’s secret wedding claims.
It comes after the Archbishop Justin Welby confirmed Meghan and Harry weren’t legally married in their back garden three days before the royal wedding.
Piers Morgan has called for the Archbishop of Canterbury to resign in a tongue-in-cheek intervention into Meghan Markle’s secret wedding claims.
Meghan and Harry claimed during their interview with Oprah that they were married in a secret ceremony three days before their Windsor wedding.
The Archbishop of Canterbury has confirmed the wedding seen by millions around the world was the real ceremony.
Former GMB host Piers insists he lost his job after refusing to apologise for “disbelieving Meghan Markle” in her bombshell Oprah interview.
Piers waded into the row again last week with a tongue-in-cheek broadside, tweeting: “The Archbishop of Canterbury should either apologise for disbelieving Meghan Markle’s secret wedding claims – or lose his job.”
In a handwritten letter he shared after losing his job, Piers had railed against “cancel culture” that he said is sweeping Britain and cost him his breakfast TV role.
This week, Piers branded Mehgan a “fake virtue-signalling hypocrite” as he blasted Oprah Winfrey for failing to challenge the Duchess during their explosive interview.
Alan Titchmarsh says he feels for pal Charles after Harry and Meghan’s chat with Oprah. Meghan told Oprah that she and Harry tied the knot “in our backyard” before the lavish public ceremony at Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018.
She told the US chat show queen only she, Harry and Justin Welby were there.
Officials later poured cold water on the claim, with Stephen Borton, who drew up the licence for the wedding, telling The Sun Meghan was “obviously confused”.
And now the Archbishop has told La Repubblica that the wedding seen by millions across the world was the real deal.
He said: “If any of you ever talk to a priest, you expect them to keep that talk confidential.
“It doesn’t matter who I’m talking to.
“I had a number of private and pastoral meetings with the Duke and Duchess before the wedding.
“The legal wedding was on the Saturday.
“I signed the wedding certificate, which is a legal document, and I would have committed a serious criminal offence if I signed it knowing it was false.
“So you can make what you like about, but the legal wedding was on the Saturday.
“I won’t say what happened at any other meetings.”
Mr Borton, former chief clerk at the Faculty Office, previously told The Sun: “I’m sorry, but Meghan is obviously confused and clearly misinformed.
“They did not marry three days earlier in front of the Archbishop of Canterbury.
“The Special Licence I helped draw up enabled them to marry at St George’s Chapel in Windsor. What happened there on May 19 2018 and was seen by millions around the world was the official wedding as recognised by the Church of England and the law.
“What I suspect they did was exchange some simple vows they had perhaps written themselves, and which is fashionable, and said that in front of the Archbishop — or, and more likely, it was a simple rehearsal.”
Meghan, 39, had stunned the world by telling US talk show queen Oprah: “You know, three days before our wedding we got married.
“No one knows that, but we called the Archbishop and we just said, ‘Look, this thing, this spectacle, is for the world, but we want our union between us’.
She said she and Harry asked Welby to marry them in private at Nottingham Cottage — their home in the grounds of Kensington Palace.
Harry, 36, chimed in: “Just the three of us.”
Under the law, a marriage cannot happen without two witnesses present.
A copy of the official wedding certificate confirms the actual ceremony did take place on May 19 at Windsor.
The witnesses are recorded as Prince Charles and Meghan’s mum Doria Ragland.
It states the Sussexes were married according to the “rites and ceremonies of the Established Church” by Special Licence by “Justin Cantuar” .
This is an abbreviation of the Latin Cantuariensis, meaning Canterbury, and is the formal way the Archbishop signs himself on official documents.
Harry and Meghan married in front of 600 guests in a wedding estimated to have cost £32million, including security.
