If he had been paid, she insisted, it would have been a "pittance".

The fiery television host has rightly called-out the hypocrisy of Samantha Markle's claims the media circus surrounding the Royal wedding caused her father, Thomas, to have a heart attack.

It is looking increasingly likely Thomas will not be attending Saturday's nuptials after admitting to setting up paparazzi shots in the press.

"I spoke to him early in the morning yesterday and he was quite depressed over an unbelievable series of events involving the media", she said.

She'd already taken the blame for the phony photoshoots in a tweet Monday, claiming she suggested the idea "for the benefit of the royal family" after the paps kept portraying her dad as a schlub.

His guest explained that her family, particularly her father Thomas, has been "suffering" at the hands of the media. "I think a person has a right to say 'enough is enough, I wasn't to be shown how I really am".

Samantha hit back: "I'm sure Piers, your inquiring minds would like to know why it was that way".

"You say this is all the media's fault, because the media has been treating him in a shabby way, many of our viewers may have watched your activities and think you have treated your sister Meghan in a very shabby way".

The estranged half-sister to Meghan Markle - who will Wednesday Prince Harry on Saturday - has tried to explain why her father will no longer walk his daughter down the aisle at Windsor Castle.

Morgan fired back. "There's no bigger media vulture with this wedding than you", he said.

Tempers flared when Piers Morgan interviewed Samantha Markle. I've made it clear in several interviews you can't judge a book by its cover or by its title.

"I wanted a title with opposite content. People just want to look at the negatives". Piers reminded Samantha about her and her father's past actions and derogatory statements against her half-sister. "Doing a deal with the paparazzi knowing that they'd [Prince Harry and Meghan] be horrified". (You can catch up on the tangled happenings here).
