Just a day after blasting the royal couple's "endless victimhood tour", he said: "Ms Markle thinks she’s in a movie.
"This interview is going to be Oscar-winning deluded self-serving bilge."
His diatribe comes hours after a new teaser trailer for the Oprah interview – which is set to be aired at 9pm on Monday on ITV – was released.
In the clip, Meghan accuses the Royal Family of "perpetuating falsehoods" and says "there's a lot has been lost".
Piers has this week spoken out about the couple on a number of occasions following claims that the Duchess of Sussex, 39, allegedly bullied staff during her time at Kensington Palace.
A source told The Times she drove two personal assistants out of the household and undermined the confidence of a third.
Meghan strongly denies the allegations.
It comes amid claims that:
- Meghan had 'furious rows' with palace aides over freebie designer clothes
- The Queen ordered a full probe into bullying claims as Buckingham Palace released a statement saying officials are 'very concerned'
- Meghan's pal accused the palace of racism – and said the star 'knew it would get ugly' before the Oprah interview aired
- The Duchess ignored aides' advice not to wear earrings gifted by the Saudi prince weeks after the murder of a journalist
- Furious palace sources said the allegations about Meghan are not a smear campaign – and branded her 'disingenuous'
Piers, 55, said Meghan and Harry need to take their "hypocritical halos" off as they have finally "cracked".
During GMB yesterday, he called the bullying claims "disturbing" – suggesting that the backlash is "karma".
He said: "It seems that if you rattle a cage enough, eventually the cage rattles back" – and said the allegations make for "very devastating reading".
Co-host Susanna Reid agreed, and said: "Well, it's very clear – as you said in your opening statement – that if you're going to launch an attack and make a lot of criticisms then whoever is at the other end of that is going to fight back."
And earlier this week, the presenter hit out at the couple's "self-wallowing narcissism" at a time when Prince Philip remains in hospital.
Piers took to Twitter this morning after watching the latest clip of the couple's interview.
In the preview, Winfrey asked how Meghan felt about “the Palace hearing you speak your truth”.
Meghan replied: “I don't know how they could expect that after all of this time we would still just be silent if there is an active role that The Firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us.”
Prince Harry’s wife added: “And, if that comes with risk of losing things, there is a lot that has been lost already.”
Meanwhile, the Queen has ordered an investigation into the bullying allegations against Meghan in the latest explosive twist.
In an unprecedented move, the Palace released a statement saying they were "very concerned" at claims the Duchess bullied staff.
The statement reads: "We are clearly very concerned about allegations in The Times following claims made by former staff of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
"Accordingly our HR team will look into the circumstances outlined in the article.
"Members of staff involved at the time, including those who have left the Household, will be invited to participate to see if lessons can be learned.
"The Royal Household has had a Dignity at Work policy in place for a number of years and does not and will not tolerate bullying or harassment in the workplace."
A spokesperson for the couple said they were the victims of a calculated smear campaign based on misleading and harmful misinformation.
The representative claimed the duchess was “saddened by this latest attack on her character, particularly as someone who has been the target of bullying herself and is deeply committed to supporting those who have experienced pain and trauma”.
