Markle stated that he lied about her and Prince Harry one time during an interview with “Good Morning Britain” host Piers Morgan after he didn’t attend the royal wedding due to a medical emergency.

He also confessed to lying to Prince Harry about his staged photoshoot:

“All Harry asked me was did I pose for measurements for a suit, and I said, ‘No, I wasn’t posing for measurement for a suit, I was being measured for a new hoodie.’ That’s what I told them. Of course, that was a lie. I lied to him. I’m not proud of that, but I did.”
