'The Crown' star Matt Smith feels sorry for Meghan Markle

From big brother to best friend and now best man, Prince William is all geared up to be the best man for Harry's royal wedding to Meghan Markle in May 2018, according to E!

Meanwhile, Harry attended his first solo duty since his engagement news at the annual London Fire Brigade carol service at Westminster Cathedral last night (5 December).

Although Markle will be spending Christmas with her 33-year-old royal fiancé - and is expected to be joining the Queen at Sandringham - it's speculated that she's now traveling the globe and visiting friends and family before settling into her new life at Kensington Palace.

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

"I feel sorry for her", said Smith, who plays Harry's grandfather, Prince Philip, on the Netflix series, "The Crown".

In "The Crown", Prince Philip struggles with the same transition Markle is only now starting to experience as he adjusts to living in the shadow of the monarch.

Pornhub reports that most royal searches are contained to parody characters - like Princess Leia and Princess Peach - but this royal announcement broke all their royal-search records, seeing huge increases in searches for Meghan from the US, UK, Spain, Germany and Belgium in particular. "And they really have. This would not have been conceivable, this would not have happened 50 years ago", she said.

Viewers will hear directly from Markle's half-sister, Samantha Markle, as well as some of her closest friends, including actress Abby Wathen and chef Tom Sellers and Queen Elizabeth II's former press secretary Dickie Arbiter.

'You realise that as you have access, or a voice that people are willing to listen to, [it comes with] a lot of responsibility, which I take seriously'.
