Meghan and Harry's 'epic love story won't have happy end' - presenter
By MIRROR | 1 month ago
Jeremy Clarkson has warned that the marriage between Meghan Markle and Prince Harry could end badly despite their relationship being an "epic love story".
The 61-year-old Grand Tour presenter spoke out in the wake of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announcing that they would be leaving the Royal Family and relocating to California.
Meghan and Harry then had their explosive tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, and Clarkson believes that they are on the path to ruin despite them looking as loved up than ever.
Writing in The Sun at the time, Clarkson said: "The tale of Harry and Meghan is an epic love story and I wish them both well, but I genuinely fear that it will not have a happy ending."
He then took aim at Meghan for not embracing her royal duties when she was in 'The Firm'.
He added: " Meghan Markle will have grown up imagining that princesses live in fairy-tale castles and spend all day riding around on golden unicorns, smiling kindly at muddy plebs.
"So it will have come as a bit of a surprise when she became a British royal and found, that on a wet Tuesday morning, she’d have to go to Carlisle on something called 'a train', to open the civic centre’s new disabled ramp.
"So, she’s obviously decided that if she can’t dine on peach and peacock and have a couple of mermaids in the gin-filled swimming pool, she won’t be opening any new toilet blocks ever again.
"I won’t judge her for that. People are allowed to resign from jobs they don’t like."
He then delivered a withering dismissal of Meghan's future, saying the Duchess is someone "much revered by the young and the stupid who believe that her brand of simpering victimhood will one day bring down the monarchy, but it won’t".
Take a survey
He added: “Trust me on this one. Markle’s toast, and within five years, I suspect she’ll be posing for photographs, on her own outside the Taj Mahal or sitting on the back of a playboy’s yacht in the Med, and poor old Piers will realise that he lost his job over absolutely nothing at all.”
