And it was revealed today that the Duchess had made another direct complaint to Ofcom, the media watchdog.
An Ofcom spokesperson: “We can confirm receipt of a standards complaint made on behalf of the Duchess of Sussex.”
Ofcom previously said they had received more than 41,000 complaints over the segment.
The Duchess is said to have been worried it would affect others struggling with similar issues.
The presenter, 55, made a series of dismissive comments about Meghan’s claims she was “suicidal” and suffered issues with her mental health while a royal.

The 39-year-old Duchess told Oprah Winfrey she felt like she “didn’t want to be alive anymore” in her bombshell interview on Sunday.
But on Monday’s Good Morning Britain, Morgan said he “didn’t believe a word” of it.
He then quit the morning show, saying he and ITV had agreed to disagree.
ITV’s royal editor Chris Ship said: “The Duchess of Sussex formally filed a complaint to ITV on Monday.
“It’s thought to have been sent to the broadcaster’s CEO.
“Meghan raised concerns about how Piers Morgan’s words affect the issue of mental health and what it might do to others contemplating suicide.”
ITV bought the rights to the Oprah interview for a rumoured £1million and its news anchor Tom Bradby also secured an interview with the couple during their Africa tour in October 2019.
ITV’s chief executive had earlier confirmed the row between Piers and Alex wasn’t “manufactured” – and said the broadcaster’s managing director of media and entertainment had spoken to Piers about his coverage of the interview.
Insisting GMB was a “balanced show”, she added: “ITV has many voices and we try and represent many voices every day. It’s not about one opinion.”
