The British acting legend Joan Collins on Sunday appeared on the ITV chat show "Piers Morgan's Life Stories," in which, fittingly, Morgan asks celebrities about their lives.

During the hourlong broadcast, Morgan managed to slip in a question about the royal family.

The 88-year-old "Dynasty" star recalled the advice she'd given Princess Diana about intense media scrutiny.

"She said, 'Does this always happen?' and I said, 'You just have to get used to it,'" Collins said.

"She did try to avoid them, didn't she? Tragic life," she added.

Morgan then asked: "What do you make of what's going on with the British royal family now, with Meghan, Harry, the feud with William, Charles?"

Collins mimed a zipper closing across her lips. "My lips are sealed on that subject," she said.

"I just don't want to go on national TV and say what I think about Meghan and Harry, because look what happened to you," she joked.

Morgan laughed. "Well, exactly, thank you!" he said.

Morgan's criticism of Markle reached new heights when Oprah Winfrey interviewed her earlier this year.

In the interview, Markle said that she'd experienced suicidal thoughts after joining the royal family and that at least one family member had expressed "concerns" before her son's birth about his skin color.

After the interview aired in March, Morgan criticized the couple on his show "Good Morning Britain" and called Markle a liar. He stormed off the set during a live taping after a cohost confronted him. Morgan later quit the show after refusing to apologize.

The UK broadcasting regulator Ofcom said it received over 57,000 complaints - a record - about Morgan's remarks.

Morgan has stood by his comments about Markle and his accusation that she lied about her mental health, most recently calling her "Princess Pinocchio" in a tweet on Saturday.
