The Crown star Matt Smith is not thrilled for Meghan Markle now that she will soon become a royal. The British actor has said that he feels sorry for her.

Smith plays the role of Prince Philip in The Crown, so he knows a thing or two about what it's like to be part of the royal clan. However, the actor doesn't envy Markle or anyone else who has joined Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip's family.

What Does Matt Smith Think Of Meghan Markle Becoming A Royal?

"It's such a tradition in her life, and it's such a huge thing to take on. Life as she knows it is gone. But hey, he's marrying the prince of Britain - how exciting for her," said Smith.

Smith's co-star, Claire Foy, has a more positive view about Markle becoming Prince Harry's wife in the next couple of months. The actress noted the fact that Markle is a divorcee, but the queen has given her the blessing to marry Prince Harry.

"You realize the fact that Elizabeth forbade her sister from marrying a divorced man. It goes to show how time has changed and how they've had to evolve. And they really have. This would not have been conceivable, this would not have happened 50 years ago," said Foy.

Meanwhile, Markle is completely aware of what she's signed up for since she and Prince Harry started dating.

During their first sit-down interview as an engaged couple, Prince Harry revealed that he reminded Markle that everything in her life will change now that she's dating him.

Prince Harry asked Markle if she's open to the idea of change and the Suits alum said "yes."

Meghan Markle's Life Changes

There have already been a few changes in Markle's life ever since she started dating Prince Harry. She's no longer active on her social media account and her lifestyle blog has been shut down. Markle has also left Suits to start a life in London where Prince Harry resides.

Even though a lot of people saw her decision to leave the USA Network show as a way of giving up on her career, Markle has a very different point of view about it. Markle said that she doesn't see it as giving but as a change.

Prince Harry supports Markle all the way and he's excited about what the future has in store for them.

"At the moment for us it's going to be making sure that our relationship is put first, but both of us have passions for wanting to make change for good," said Prince Harry.
