Piers Morgan offered his gratitude to Fox News host Tucker Carlson for defending him as he faces backlash for repeatedly insisting that he doesn’t “believe” Meghan Markle.

Morgan, 55, shared a segment Thursday from Carlson’s show in which the conservative host called him an “inspiration” and praised him for refusing to “let the mob make him lie.”

“Thanks @TuckerCarlson,” Morgan wrote on Twitter Thursday along with a thumbs up emoji.

In the clip, Carlson explained that Morgan left his “Good Morning Britain” hosting gig after criticizing Markle, 39, over her tell-all Oprah Winfrey special.

“Piers Morgan knew what the script was supposed to be. ‘Oh, you poor, oppressed Duchess,’ but he refused to read it. So now he’s unemployed,” Carlson said.

“Piers Morgan just reminded the world that some things are more important than having a job like your dignity and your self-respect. History will treat him well. Good for you, Piers,” he continued.

Morgan has said that he doesn’t “believe a word” Markle said in the explosive interview — during which she revealed that she had been suicidal in the palace and that a member of the royal family had raised “concerns” about the color of her son Archie’s skin.

“I wouldn’t believe it if she read me a weather report,” Morgan said on-air Monday.

When colleagues confronted him on-air about his attacks Tuesday, the host stormed off the set and later quit the show.

He confirmed Tuesday that he left the morning TV gig after having a “good chat” with network ITV.

“We agreed to disagree,” he said.

Speaking to reporters outside his London home, Morgan reiterated that he still doesn’t find Markle to be genuine.

“I don’t believe almost anything that comes out of her mouth and I think the damage she’s done to the British monarchy and to the Queen at a time when Prince Philip is lying in hospital is enormous and frankly contemptible,” Morgan said.
