Prince Philip made a harsh remark about Meghan Markle before her marriage to Harry

Prince Philip really didn't hold back...

Previously, it was reported that Prince William told Harry to not rush into anything when he announced his plans to marry Meghan Markle and it seems that Prince Philip also had some advice.

Not just any old line though as Prince Philip reportedly told his grandson that marrying Meghan was a bad idea.

Why so?

Because in his eyes, marrying an actress isn't a good idea.

The Sun reports that he told Harry:

"One steps out with actresses, one doesn’t marry them".

It's thought that the Duke of Edinburgh made the remarks when it became obvious that Harry's relationship with Meghan Markle, a former Suits star, was going from strength to strength.

Harry, of course, ignored the advice and went ahead with his decision to propose to the American actress.

And as we all know this story has a fairytale ending with the couple welcoming their first child, Archie, at the beginning of May.

The Duke of Edinburgh featured in one of the first photos of baby Archie too alongside Harry, Meghan, the Queen and Doria Ragland, Meghan's mum.

Meghan also referenced Prince Phillip at the photocall where baby Archie was first introduced to the world, saying that they had just run into him and it was lovely that he was one of the first to meet their son.

So while he may have had his reservations to begin with, it's clear that everything worked out for the best.
