Columnist Jeremy Clarkson Met with Queen Camilla Just Days Before His Hateful Meghan Markle Article Went Viral

Broadcaster Jeremy Clarkson published a shockingly hate-filled column about Meghan Markle in The Sun over the weekend, and now it's been revealed that he attended a private Christmas lunch hosted by Queen Camilla just days before.

According to the Daily Mail, The Queen was joined by Jeremy Clarkson as well as high profile attendees like Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville (from Downton Abbey) and Piers Morgan. The event was held in central London and was a "purely private" affair, which happened to take place one day before the second installment of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Netflix docuseries dropped.

Just two days after the lunch, Clarkson published his piece about Meghan and Harry in The Sun, which has been accused of inciting violence against women and has generated huge amounts of backlash on social media.

The timing of Clarkson piece coming after Queen Camilla's lunch is certainly brow-raising, since the royals haven't said one word about Meghan and Harry's docuseries themselves. Also noteworthy? After spewing a bunch of hate (which we won't be repeating) about Meghan, Jeremy said “Everyone who’s my age thinks the same way.”

Clarkson released an apology (of sorts?) on Twitter this morning, writing "Oh dear. I’ve rather put my foot in it. In a column I wrote about Meghan, I made a clumsy reference to a scene in Game of Thrones and this has gone down badly with a great many people. I’m horrified to have caused so much hurt and I shall be more careful in future."
