So-called feminist Germaine Greer gives Royal Wedding a bleak outlook

Outspoken feminist Germaine Greer has said Prince Harry’s marriage to Meghan Markle is destined for failure.

In an interview with 60 Minutes, Greer was “ripping in” to the couple, saying “Meghan’s realising now just how difficult the Royal Family is to stomach”.

“I don’t think there’s a better example of what it means to be completely sour, bitter and narky than Germaine Greer,” says Chris Smith.

Commenting on Meghan’s clothes and motivations, the controversial feminist didn’t leave much room for respect.

Slamming one particular outfit, Greer told 60 Minutes it was “a turd of a hat” and “certainly ugly”.

“Why would a girl born in poverty marry a man with £53 million? I can’t think of a single reason!”

Chris calls out Greer, who labels herself as a feminist.

“Watching Germaine Greer speak with Tara (Brown) last night, I couldn’t help but laugh because she calls herself a feminist.

“Yet here she is tearing to shreds another woman.

“Poking fun at her, assuming the absolute worst about her.”

He comes to the defence of Royal Couple, pushing aside Greer’s bleak predictions.

“I’m looking forward to this pair being married, I like her stuff.

“I like how genuinely sincere she is about helping Harry and his charities.”
