Helen Mirren Defends Meghan Markle After Royal Exit: "Their Instincts Were Absolutely Correct"

Given that Helen Mirren played Queen Elizabeth II in 2006’s The Queen, I’d say the actress knows a thing or two about the British royal family. I mean, her performance did win her an Oscar, after all. Well, now Helen is coming to Meghan Markle’s defense following her and Prince Harry’s (aka Just Harry) decision to step down 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 . . . Wow! What a lovely addition. Didn’t seem to be neurotic,” she told Variety in an interview on Thursday. “So, I think it is a loss in a way, but at the same time I think their instincts are absolutely correct.

They’ll find another victim . . . probably me.”
