Jeremy Clarkson emails Prince Harry and Meghan to apologise for column saying he 'hated' duchess

TV presenter Jeremy Clarkson has said he has emailed Prince Harry and Meghan to apologise over his column in The Sun newspaper, in which he said he "hated" the Duchess of

Sussex. In his column, which was published in December, he said he was "dreaming of the day when she is made to parade naked through the streets of every town in Britain

while crowds chant, 'Shame!' and throw lumps of excrement at her". The remarks sparked a huge backlash, with Clarkson's daughter Emily, as well as many others, speaking out

against him. The column became the most complained about ever and was removed from The Sun's website at Clarkson's request, with the publisher also

apologising. Following the backlash, Clarkson wrote: "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." In his latest statement,

he said: "It was a slow rumble to start with, and I ignored it. But then the rumble got louder. So I picked up a copy of The Sun to see what all the fuss was about. "We've

all been there, I guess. In that precise moment when we suddenly realise we've completely messed up. You are sweaty and cold at the same time. And your head pounds. And you feel

sick. I couldn't believe what I was reading. Had I really said that? It was horrible.
