Outspoken veteran journalist Piers Morgan had previously described the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as "hypocritical brats" after the two decided to step down from senior roles in the royal family and attempt to become financially independent.

Veteran British journalist and broadcaster Piers Morgan is to leave his role on ITV's Good Morning Britain after his criticism of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The ITV confirmed the news in a tweet on Tuesday.

"Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain," the channel said in a statement. "ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add."

Broadcasting regulator Ofcom launched an investigation into Morgan's conduct after it received more than 41,000 complaints about him.

The former Daily Mirror editor and CNN presenter walked out in the middle of Tuesday morning's programme after GMB weatherman Alex Beresford accused him of harbouring a personal grudge against the Duchess of Sussex. 

​Morgan earlier tweeted a clip of himself on the programme explaining his scepticism of Markle's claim that members of the royal household told her she could not seek psychiatric help after feeling suicidal.
