When asked by the magazine on winning the GQ Car Awards Lifetime Achievement whether he ever got emotional, Jeremy replied: “Everybody cries. Everybody cried when Princess Diana was buried. But I mean, as a general rule, you’ve got to get a grip,“ he said.
“I think the expression “get a grip” needs to come back into the lexicon as soon as possible.
“Everybody needs to get a grip. Meghan Markle… just get a grip.”
It is not the first time that Jeremy has been disparaging of the actress, as he accused Meghan of resigning from a job she no longer enjoyed when she stepped down as senior royal last month, in his Sun column.
Jeremy suggested it may have come as a “surprise” to Meghan about life as a British royal and it wasn’t all “fairy-tale castles” and “riding around on golden unicorns.”
He began by saying: “So it will have come as a bit of a surprise when she became a British royal and found that on a wet Tuesday morning, she’d have to go to Carlisle on something called ‘a train’, to open the civic centre’s new disabled ramp.”
“She’s obviously decided that if she can’t dine on peach and peacock and have a couple of mermaids in the gin-filled swimming pool, she won’t be opening any new toilet blocks ever again.” said the controversial motoring broadcaster
The comments from come after a week of criticism of the Sussexes in their bid to be financially independent away from the Monarchy.
The explosive debate also touched on alleged bullying Meghan has received from the UK press, and Mr Markle was quick to deny that Meghan had been singled out by the media.
“ I’m having trouble buying that, there has never been a problem in terms of race with Meghan at her school or in any place and I haven’t noticed it in England at all.
“I think England is far more liberal than the US when it comes to races, I don’t think she is being bullied in anyway, or any shape, because of racism,” he told Piers.
Although Mr Markle admitted that his need to give interviews will “cause problems” with the Sussexes, he believes it is the only chance he will get to reconcile with Meghan.
