British Royal News suggests that while a lot of people have been side-eyeing Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for their decision to leave the royal family, there’s at least one British-born comedian that is showing his support for the ex-working royal couple. As a matter of fact, John Oliver says that he completely understands the reason why Harry and Meghan decided to quit the royal family. Here’s what you need to know.
Just last month the Duke and Duchess of Sussex shocked the world with their seismic public announcement, in which they said that they were looking to become part-time royals. After a period of tough negotiations with Queen Elizabeth, all parties involved decided that it would be best for Harry and Meghan to go their separate way, even though Her Majesty preferred to see them stay. As a result, Harry and Meghan have decided to pack their bags and move to Vancouver, Canada to start a new life together.

British Royal News: One British Comedian Gives His Support To Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Post-Megxit
While there are a lot of people that are slamming the couple for their decision, John Oliver is backing them up. That’s because he knows just how vicious and unfair the British press can be while adding that this was something a lot of people saw coming for many months now.
“I think they’ve absolutely done the right thing,” he said in an interview with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show. “It was a horrible situation for them to be in. I think one of the recent times I was on this show, before the wedding, I was saying this is gonna be rough. The British tabloid press is rough on royalty. So I understand why they wanted to get out of there.”
