Helen Mirren Defends Meghan Markle: She Was a 'Lovely Addition' to the Royals

Helen Mirren knows a thing or two about the royal family after winning an Oscar for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II in The Queen. Now, she’s weighing in on the drama after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry left their positions as senior members of the royal family.

Meghan Markle was a fantastic addition to the Royal Family – charming, did everything right, was gracious, was sweet-natured, and seemed to be,” Helen told Variety. Wow! What a lovely addition. Didn’t seem to be neurotic…”

“I think it is a loss in a way, but at the same time I think their instincts are absolutely correct,” she added about their decision to move to Canada. “And I think it will all, hopefully, sort itself out, and the tabloid pearl-clutchers will get over their trauma at not having someone to attack all the time. They’ll find another victim… Probably me!”
