the Duchess of Sussex.

It brings the controversial host’s time on the breakfast show to
an end after six years.

ITV announced the decision after The Office of Communications
(Ofcom) said it was investigating his comments after receiving
41,000 complaints, the BBC reports.

On Monday’s show, Morgan said he “didn’t believe a word” the
duchess had told Oprah Winfrey in an interview.

An ITV spokesperson said: “Following discussions with ITV, Piers
Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain.
ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add.”

His departure followed an on-air clash with weather presenter
Alex Beresford, who criticised Morgan yesterday for “continuing to
trash” the duchess, prompting Morgan to walk offset. He returned
within 10 minutes.

Also Tuesday, ITV chief executive Carolyn McCall said she
“completely believed what [the duchess] says”, adding that ITV is
“totally committed to” mental health”.

On Monday’s programme, Morgan picked up on the duchess’s claim
that her request to senior Buckingham Palace officials for help was
rejected after she told Winfrey she had had suicidal thoughts.

A total of 41,015 complaints were made to media watchdog Ofcom
by 14:00 GMT on Tuesday.

That is the second-highest number of complaints in Ofcom’s
17-year history, behind the 44,500 submitted over several days
about the racism row involving Jade Goody and Shilpa Shetty on
Celebrity Big Brother in 2007.

“We have launched an investigation into Monday’s episode of Good
Morning Britain under our harm and offence rules,” a spokesperson
for the regulator said.

Earlier Tuesday, Queen Elizabeth and her family said they were
saddened to learn of the experiences of Prince Harry and his wife,
Meghan, saying they would address issues around race that were
raised by the couple in an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

“The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how
challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan,”
Buckingham Palace said in a statement.

“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning.
Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously
and will be addressed by the family privately.

“Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved family
members.”
