Meghan Markle's Princess Preparation Will Include Hostage Training

The Crown's Matt Smith

The Crown's Matt Smith "feels sorry" for Meghan Markle

"I feel sorry for her", Smith told Vanity Fair of Meghan Markle.

However, avoiding being too much of a Debbie Downer, the former Doctor Who star added: 'But hey, she's marrying the prince of Britain - how exciting for her'.

The actress, who plays the Queen in the £100m series, explained the engagement between Harry, 35, and Meghan, 36, marked a significant step forward for the royal family, comparing it to the relationship between Princess Margaret and Group Captain Peter Townsend.

In today's batch of very creepy news, we've managed to find the one thing that taints the attractive, mushy, loved-up glory that was the engagement announcement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Apparently, Pornhub visitors also showed a little spike of interest in Ms. Markle when her and Harry first went public in November of previous year - with searches increasing by 1430 per cent.

Smith's co-star, Claire Foy, has a more positive view about Markle becoming Prince Harry's wife in the next couple of months. Life as she knows it is gone.

"You realize the fact that Elizabeth forbade her sister from marrying a divorced man; it goes to show how time has changed and how they've had to evolve", she said.

'And they really have.

Commenting on the upcoming royal wedding, Foy took a more optimistic approach and admitted that the times have changed, and so has many royal traditions.

Meghan, who last week confirmed she is engaged to Prince Harry, will give up her acting career as she embarks on her new role as a royal. "This would not have been conceivable, this would not have happened 50 years ago", explained Foy. She's no longer active on her social media account and her lifestyle blog has been shut down.

Prince Harry supports Markle all the way and he's excited about what the future has in store for them.
