Grime star Stormzy has waded in on the royal row to defend Meghan Markle after the Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry announced that they are stepping down as senior royals.
After their announcement, the Queen, 93, said she would have preferred they remain full-time royals, but confirmed Buckingham Palace would support the couple's plan following the royal inner circle's first round of crisis talks over the pair's future.
Now, Stormzy – real name Michael Ebenazer Kwadjo Omari Owuo Jr- has backed former actress Meghan for her and Prince Harry's decision to move to Canada during an interview on New York radio station Hot 97.
The Vossi Bob hitmaker said: "Meghan is a sweet woman, she does her thing. I haven’t heard her say anything crazy and they just hate her."
During the chat he also reflected on presenter Eammon Holmes' comments, that the journalist made on TalkSport last week.
Holmes blasted Meghan as he said: "I just find her incredibly irritating. I’ve never met her, but I look at her and think 'I don’t think I’d like you in real life'."
Commenting on Eammon's words, Stomzy told: "Bro, she’s black, that’s who you’re talking about. 'I just look at her and I think she’s got that arrogance.’
"I’m like, nah, she’s black man. Just get the f*** out of here."
On Monday the royal family entered crisis talks to discuss how to deal with Harry and Meghan's decision to step down.
In a statement released at 5pm on Monday from the Palace, the Queen said: "Today my family had very constructive discussions on the future of my grandson and his family.
"My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan's desire to create a new life as a young family.
"Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family.
Harry and Meghan have made clear that they do not want to be reliant on public funds in their new lives.
"It has therefore been agreed that there will be a period of transition in which the Sussexes will spend time in Canada and the UK.
"These are complex matters for my family to resolve, and there is some more work to be done, but I have asked for final decisions to be reached in the coming days."
