Piers Morgan has claimed that Meghan Markle had a ‘crush’ on him during the time they had a ‘friendship,’ and even ‘slid into his DMs’.
The 56-year-old recently took to his new column for The Sun and warned the Duchess of Sussex that she’s in for an ‘unpleasant surprise’ as he begins to write for the publication.
In his slot, titled ‘Uncensored,’ he asked himself: “Your blossoming friendship with Meghan Markle was abruptly terminated when she met her now-husband, Prince Harry.

“Do you, deep down, think she once had a slight crush on you too?”
In response, he said: “No question.
“Nobody’s ever slid faster into my DMs after I’ve followed them on social media – she made Usain Bolt look like a tortoise.”
Elsewhere in his column, the TV presenter said if Markle happened to be reading his feature, he wouldn’t be sending her a ‘message,’ as she should stay tuned for his upcoming pieces.
Previously, Morgan has claimed that he originally got on speaking terms with the Suits star when he followed her on Twitter several years ago.
Shortly afterwards, Markle apparently popped up in his DMs.
According to the Daily Star, the mum-of-two wrote: “Well hello there – thanks for the follow. Big fan of yours!”
It’s believed that when Markle was next in town, the pair met up at one of Morgan’s favourite pubs, in London, and the Duchess enjoyed some ‘dirty martinis’.
However, their friendship reportedly came to an end when the actress began getting closer to her future husband, Prince Harry.
