Marrying into a stately family — generally Britain’s notoriously hyper-scrutinized Mountbatten-Windsor family — is no tiny step. And notwithstanding a allure of crowns, gowns and castles, it can be a outrageous responsibility. Just ask others who have tied a tangle and knitted their fates with that of a crown. Or ask those who have finished it… fictionally.
Matt Smith, who plays Queen Elizabeth II’s father Prince Philip on Netflix’s renouned The Crown, had some comments about Meghan Markle’s destiny as a mother of Prince Harry. Speaking during a screening of a uncover during New York’s 92nd Street Y, Smith seemed to describe with Markle’s situation. (As displayed in his story arc onscreen, Philip could be a demure stately consort, anticipating problem adjusting to expectations. But a real-life Philip has stranded by his Queen’s side for 70 years now.)
“I feel contemptible for her,” Smith pronounced of Markle. “It’s such a transition in her life, and it’s such a outrageous thing to take on. Life as she knows it is gone. But hey, she’s marrying a king of Britain — how sparkling for her.”
Following months of privacy, Markle has only taken on some of her initial open roles as Prince Harry’s fiancée, including creation an coming during a gift event. She also announced her preference to leave her behaving career.
