Rebel Wilson Deems Meghan Markle ‘Not As Cool’ As Prince Harry After Meeting
Rebel Wilson is sharing an insight into her thoughts about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
HollywoodLife said the 43-year-old actress recalled her recent encounter with the former working royals in the United States. As noted, she revealed what happened in the meeting during an exchange with Andy Cohen for an episode of “Watch What Happens Live.”
The “Pitch Perfect” actress is said to have stated that she met the Duke and Duchess of Sussex through a mutual friend, adding that the royal-born Prince was "lovely" and “could not have been nicer.”
But, the case is seemingly different with regard to her thoughts about the former actress, telling the talk show host that Markle “was not as cool” and “wasn’t as naturally warm” as her husband, as per the publication.
Rebel Wilson is said to have revealed, however, that there may be an explanation why the former “Suits” actress didn’t “warm” up to her during their last encounter.
As stated, the “Isn’t It Romantic” star shared in the exchange that it may have had to do with her mother, who was with her when she met the former working royals.
Wilson told Cohen that her mom, “being Australian asked her all these slightly rude questions like, ‘Where are your kids?’ and things like that,” before saying, “And I’m like, ‘Mom, don’t ask her that,’” as per the publication.
In the end, the actress is said to have stated, “Maybe that’s why she was like, ‘Who are these annoying convicts from Australia?’”
Following the revelations, though, Rebel Wilson seemingly received criticisms from netizens on social media.
Express UK reported that the actress’s comments about Meghan Markle have caused a frenzy among individuals, with some reportedly alleging that her statements were designed to “stir up hate.”
Some netizens are said to have even stated that Wilson was looking for “cheap laughs” at the expense of the Duchess of Sussex.
Meanwhile, this was not the first time Rebel Wilson shared her thoughts about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Earlier in 2022, the “How To Be Single” actress poked fun at the former working royals when she hosted that year’s BAFTA Film Awards, specifically when announcing the nominees for the Outstanding British Film category, as per Hello! Magazine.
Wilson is said to have begun the presentation by saying, “Our next package is for Outstanding British Film,” before quipping, “From drama to fantasy, Harry and Meghan’s Oprah interview had it all… Unfortunately, that’s not nominated in this category, but some incredible films are.”
She subsequently proceeded to present the nominees for the said category at the awards show.
