YOUR columnist Christa Ackroyd’s recent criticism of Piers Morgan and her description of him was generally a valid one (The Yorkshire Post, March 13).
Piers Morgan has an abrasive style but, for me, there is a lot of truth in what he says, even if I may not like the way he says it.
Christa, however, did not cover herself in glory with her interpretation of “that interview”. Two American actresses produced a well-rehearsed programme with an aim to discredit the Royal Family and they had the White House joining in to give its support of Meghan without knowing any of the context of discussions in the Palace.
The Queen, over a near-70 year reign, has dedicated her life to the Commonwealth, thereby doing more for race relations than anyone ever has or will do.
Her Majesty has also maintained good relations with numerous prime ministers and heads of state. Yet she has the likes of Christa Ackroyd saying “it is up to the Queen now to sort out the family rift”.
I would have preferred it if Christa Ackroyd gave some balance and mentioned the rifts that Meghan has had with her father, family and friends in the past.
