On Tuesday’s ‘GMB’, he told his co-host Susanna Reid: “She sent me a message – ‘I’m in town, do you want to meet up?’ and I said ‘Sure, come to my local pub for a pint.’
“So Meghan comes along and there were about five locals – talk about eyes popping out of their heads, because she arrived with the shades, the look, the whole thing.
“We sat there and she had dirty Martinis, the vodka version – I had a couple of pints of Harvey’s Real Ale. And for 90 minutes I had a chat with someone I just thought was this actress in a show that I loved, and we talked about the show and off we went and it was all fine.”
According to Piers, the 36-year-old ‘Suits’ star then headed off to a private members club after receiving a series of texts from a “mystery man”, admitting she was still getting to grips with the UK dating scene.
Piers continued: “I put her in an Uber, off she goes, and when the story broke about two or three months later there was a nugget saying they first properly met at a members’ club in London either that night or the next day.
“So it could well be I put Meghan Markle in an Uber to the arms of Prince Harry.”
He then added: “I drove her to your arms your Highness – is it too much to ask?”
Piers was referring to getting an invite to the couple’s wedding next year, which he tried to get himself on the guest list to in a not-so-subtle tweet sent after the news broke on Monday morning.
Referring to himself as Markle’s “friend” he tweeted: “Congrats Meghan and Harry. My friend will make the perfect modern bride. P.s Do I get an invite @MeghanMarkle?”
Unsurprisingly, his request was widely mocked on Twitter with many calling out his “desperation”.
