Why The Crown's Matt Smith Feels

The actress noted the fact that Markle is a divorcee, but the queen has given her the blessing to marry Prince Harry.

On the very same day that their happy engagement news was announced, searches for the name "Meghan Markle" increased by 2208 per cent on PORNHUB.

There's an interesting art-meets-life connection, in that the first season of "The Crown" dealt with the monarchy rejecting two royal marriages to divorced loved ones, and now Prince Harry is marrying divorcée Meghan Markle.

During an interview at the 92nd Street Y in N.Y.C., Smith, who plays Prince Philip on the Netflix show, didn't hold back when discussing her future life.

Apparently, Pornhub visitors also showed a little spike of interest in Ms. Markle when her and Harry first went public in November of previous year - with searches increasing by 1430 per cent.

According to sources, the betrothed royal has already asked William to be his best man when Harry and Meghan tie the knot at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle this May.

'And they really have. This would not have been conceivable, this would not have happened 50 years ago.
