Why The Crown's Matt Smith Feels "Sorry" for Meghan Markle

Why The Crown's Matt Smith Feels

Washington D.C. [U.S.A], December 6: While the whole world is celebrating the news that Prince Harry is set to Wednesday "Suits" actress Meghan Markle next spring, actor Matt Smith has something different to say about Markle's transition into the royalty.

New attention: Smith said that "life as [Meghan] knows it is gone".

Speaking at a talk at the 92nd Street Y in New York City ahead of series two of The Crown, Matt, 35, said of Meghan: 'I feel sorry for her. This is not exactly the cold, arranged marriage of royal families.

Meghan, 36, was previously married to Trevor Engelson from 2011 to 2013, and Matt's co-star Claire Foy - who plays Queen Elizabeth - noted how her engagement to Harry would "not have been conceivable" during the period of history they are depicting on the show.

Harry and Cressida split from each other in 2014 after she and Prince Charles' youngest son began dating two years earlier.

"You realise 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", said Foy, alluding to Markle's divorce from Trevor Engelson in 2013.

'And they really have.

Meanwhile the Queen's suspicions of infidelity are aroused after she finds a picture of a dancer in his bag - believed to represent Pat Kirkwood, the real-life dancer he was once linked to.

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.

Sounds like the status quo of most A-list actors/singers/athletes, and the "Suits" actress probably knows exactly what she's signing up for.

"At the moment for us it's going to be making sure that our relationship is put first, but both of us have passions for wanting to make change for good", said Prince Harry.
