Prince Harry and Meghan's heartfelt gesture comes after the Duchess received an outpouring of support in response to Jeremy Clarkson's newspaper column. The broadcaster became the subject of intense criticism after he launched a tirade about how much he "hated" Meghan.

In his piece, which featured in The Sun, Jeremy wrote that he dreamt of the day Meghan would be made to parade through British towns and publicly shamed, adding that "everyone who's my age thinks the same way".

Jeremy faced backlash for his column

Shortly after the article was published, the Independent Press Standards Organisation (Ipso) said it had received more than 6,000 complaints over the article – almost half the total number of complaints the media regulator received in 2021.

Addressing the backlash, Jeremy took to Twitter and penned: "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."
