HARRY Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has revealed he feels terrible for Meghan Markle and called her new royal life crazy.
The famous actor, 30, opened up about the pressure the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been facing, which has lead to them taking a six-week break from royal duties.
Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe says he feels ‘terrible’ for Meghan and Prince Harry
Daniel said he can only imagine what the Duchess of Sussex, 38, is going though.
He told People Now: I feel terrible for Meghan Markle.
That’s why I always thought [Prince Harry and Meghan’s] relationship was sweet. Because I was like, ‘She must love you, if she wants to get involved in this crazy life.’
It must be insane.”
Daniel said he’s been through just a fraction of what the royals have gone through in terms of scrutiny
The actor, who was 12 when the first Harry Potter film was released, said the attention he received as a young star was only a fraction of what Meghan and Harry have gone through.
He added that William and Harry were born into the scrutiny, and added: They went through it from birth. I can’t imagine what that life must be like.
So while I’m not into the institution of the monarchy, I have a huge amount of respect and empathy for [the royal family].”
On ITV documentary Harry and Meghan: An African Journey, the duchess held back tears as she said royal life has been a struggle.

The new mum said: “Look, any woman especially when they are pregnant youre really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging, and then when you have a newborn you know
“And especially as a woman, its a lot. So you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed its, well
“And, also thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if Im OK. But its a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes.”
Tom asks her directly if it is fair to say that it has been a struggle, and looking emotional, Meghan replies: “Yes.”
Meanwhile a different clip from the documentary showed Prince Harry revealing he feels the ‘festering wounds’ left by his mother’s death.
