Meghan Markle vile comments made by journalist Jeremy Clarkson is a ‘really bad mistake,’ says royal expert.
Richard Palmer supports the Duchess of Sussex as she becomes a target of yet another tirade from British media.
Speaking on the Royal Round-Up, Mr Palmer began: “I can’t quite see how it got in the paper.
“I think he writes in an over the top style sometimes. And it’s clearly very popular with a section of the public – particularly blokes who watch programmes about cars and some of the other things he’s involved in.
“I could see that there was a reference to Games of Thrones because I watched all of that programme.
“And I can see that the newspaper colmunist are paid to be slightly over the top to get a reaction from readers. But I think it was just a really bad mistake.”
Mr Palmer noticed Jeremy Clarkson “sort of” apologised with the following statement: “Oh dear. I’ve rather put my foot in it. In a column I wrote about Meghan, I made a clumsy reference to a scene in Game of Thrones and this has gone down badly with a great many people. I’m horrified to have caused so much hurt and I shall be more careful in future.”
Despite the apology, Palmer added: “I strongly disagree with that in general. It is right that The Sun has withdrawn that column.”
