Jeremy Clarkson's daughter Emily, 28, took to social media on Sunday, where she addressed her dad's recent comments about Meghan Markle in a strongly-worded Instagram Story.

She wrote: "My views are and have always been clear when it comes to misogyny, bullying and the treatment of women by the media. "I want to make it very clear that I stand against everything that my dad wrote about Meghan Markle and I remain standing in support of those that are targeted with online hatred."

She was writing in response to a newspaper column by her 62-year-old father, in which – among other controversial comments – he expressed that he "hates" the Duchess of Sussex, claiming that everyone in his age bracket feels the same.

Podcaster Emily and her father appeared to enjoy happier family times together earlier in the year, when the twenty-something tied the knot.

Jeremy shared a heart-melting photo of the father-daughter duo at the reception. The bride, who hosts the podcast Should I Delete That?, wore a vintage-inspired bridal gown with sheer cap sleeves, a high neckline and jewel embellishments, while her father looked smart in a black suit and crisp white shirt.

The father-daughter duo typically get along well

"Fathers. I cannot even begin to describe how wonderful it is when your daughter gets married to someone you like. I am being very unmanly about this weekend. It was just sublime. I have never been happier," Jeremy gushed in an Instagram caption.

Many of his followers were quick to defend his public display of emotion. "Nothing unmanly about wanting your daughter and her now-husband to be happy," wrote one.
