James May slams ‘distasteful’ Harry and Meghan for opening up about private life

James May says Prince Harry and Meghan Markle should "know better" than to talk about their personal lives in public.

The Grand Tour presenter has shares his views on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and he didn't hold back.

In a new interview with Radio Times, the journalist said the royal family should be an "exemplar".

Earlier this year, Harry and Meghan took part in a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey and made a series of explosive allegations against the royal family.

It has also been confirmed that Harry will also publish a memoir about his life next week.

"I don't take much interest in the royal family," May told the magazine.

"The Meghan and Harry story sounded a little bit distasteful. People talking about their personal lives in public.

"Everyone's got issues like that, and I don't think the rest of us should know or care about it.

"I thought the whole point of a royal family is that they were supposed to be an exemplar.

"They're aristocrats, aren't they? They're supposed to know better – just keep it in."

May also labelled jokes about Prince Andrew in the new The Grand Tour special Lochdown "a bit contrived".

He added that when they were making the episode of the motoring programme he thought it was a mistake to reference the pandemic "because it'd all be over in six months and people wouldn't want to be reminded of that miserable time when our show eventually came out".
