Two members of the Royal Family have been named as the 'royal racists' in a Dutch translation of Omid Scobie's book.ABC
On his show, Morgan attempted to justify the decision by arguing he was reacting to the “witch hunt” started by Harry and Meghan’s comments without giving context.
Following the allegations on Oprah, the Royal Family released a statement saying the allegations were concerning but that “recollections may vary”.
Morgan continued by claiming the release of the names would enable the British public to have a “more open debate about this whole farrago”.
He added: “Because I don't believe any racist comments were ever made by any of the Royal Family, and until there is actual evidence of those comments being made, I will never believe it.
“But now we can start the process of finding out if they ever got uttered, what the context was, and whether there was any racial intent at all – like I say, I don't believe there was.”

Following the identification of the alleged royals, commentator Angela Levin said it was only “helping” Harry and Meghan.
“I think it's the wrong thing to do, because that, in a way, is helping Harry and Meghan to smirch the royals... to punish the royals and humiliate them,” she told Mail Online.
She added that Buckingham Palace will be “horrified” by Morgan's comments.
“It's just so unnecessary and spiteful and nasty,” she added.
“I think it's very wrong of him to name it.”
Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams agreed with Levin that Morgan “should not have named them” adding “the circumstances of this are extremely serious”.
He also told MailOnline: “To suddenly seize the nation's attention and propel yourself forward in this way, I think, is absolutely shameful, and it just shows that certain individuals would do anything to get publicity.”
