Jeremy Clarkson has cautioned that despite their relationship being an “epic love story,” Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s marriage could end badly.
The 61-year-old Grand Tour star believes the Sussexes’ story will not end happily.
Clarkson made the remarks in an article for The Sun, after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex decided to abandon royal duties and move to California.
“The tale of Harry and Meghan is an epic love story and I wish them both well,” Clarkson penned, “but I genuinely fear that it will not have a happy ending.”
The former Top Gear star also said that he “doesn’t judge” Meghan for her choice, albeit in a sarcastic tone.
He said, “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,” he continued.
“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 ,” Clarkson explained.
Despite having a favorable opinion of Meghan last year, Mr Clarkson has lately been more skeptical of the Duchess.
Since Piers Morgan quit ITV about his remarks about the Duchess, he referred to her as a “silly little cable TV actress.”
“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,” Jeremy said.
“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 ,” he wrote.
