Queen Camilla Ruffles Feathers After Having Lunch With Anti-Meghan Markle Supporters
This comes as Harry and Meghan announce new leadership and activism-fueled Netflix project.
Queen Camilla may be evening up the tally. Though the royals themselves have not publicly addressed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s explosive, tell-all Netflix docuseries, Camilla’s recently busy schedule speaks volumes.
The Queen Consort was recently spotted out to lunch with UK journalists Piers Morgan and Jeremy Clarkson, aka the ring leaders of the “I Hate Harry and Meghan Markle Club.”
The Christmas luncheon was held the day prior to the release of Harry & Meghan volume two, at one of London’s premier restaurants, per Newsweek. Also, conveniently, just two days before Clarkson’s controversial hate-filled essay about the Duchess of Sussex was published in The Sun.
According to the Independent, Clarkson compared his hatred towards Meghan as that of a serial killer. “I hate her on a cellular level,” he reportedly penned.
The English broadcaster then went into horrific detail regarding how Meghan has left him “unable to sleep” because he is “grinding my teeth and dreaming of the day she is made to parade naked through the streets of every town in Britain while the crowds chant, ‘Shame!’ and throw lumps of excrement at her.”
Britons, both fans and public figures alike, have since come out of the woodwork expressing the unlawfulness of and their disgust towards Clarkson’s column. Rightfully so, as its contents are disturbing, to say the least.
Per the Associated Press, the column was taken down as of Monday, Dec. 20, after the Independent Press Standards Organization received a record-breaking amount of complaints.
To be clear, Meghan’s mother-in-law was not the organizer of this lunch party. However, her attendance in accordance with Clarkson’s and Morgan’s has left a sour taste in people’s mouths. (In case you were wondering, the palace hasn’t issued a statement regarding Clarkson’s column.)
Meanwhile, rather than addressing the Queen Consort’s questionable lunch dates, Harry and Meghan are moving on to their next project with Netflix. It’s another docuseries and inspired by the work of Nelson Mandela.
This time around, the couple will be working behind the camera as executive producers.
Titled Live to Lead, the series will showcase thought-provoking interviews with Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Greta Thunberg, Bryan Stevenson, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacina Ardern, Siya Kolisi, Gloria Steinmen, and Albie Sachs as they “reflect on their legacies and share messages of courage, compassion, humility [and] hope,” per People.
Live to Lead will be available to stream on Netflix starting Dec. 31.
