Rispetto ad alcune delle critiche (e agli attacchi diretti) che il principe Harry e Meghan Markle ricevono dai media quasi quotidianamente, la battuta sfacciata di Rebel Wilson prima di ospitare i BAFTA si registra a malapena. L’attore australiano ha fatto riferimento al testo “Mi piace essere in America / Okay by me America”, di “West Side Story” come “la nuova sigla di Meghan e Harry”, durante un’apparizione in “This Morning” di ITV, per NME . Wilson stava ovviamente scherzando sulla decisione del duca e della duchessa di Sussex di lasciarsi alle spalle i doveri reali e di trasferirsi definitivamente negli Stati Uniti. Per quanto riguarda i colpi, non è stato esattamente il più acuto, ma potrebbe comunque farti chiedere se Wilson si sta schierando nella faida reale.
Well, if Wilson is taking sides, the photo of herself with Prince Harry that she posted to Instagram, as well as the caption, might give you an idea of which side that would actually be.
Rebel Wilson says she's 'Team Harry'
Rebel Wilson posted a group shot that included herself and Prince Harry to her Instagram on May 23, captioning the photo, "Team Harry!" Is that an official stance? No, probably not. The photo was taken at the Santa Barbara Polo Club where Harry had competed in a polo match the weekend prior. The prince's team won, per Page Six, in case you were curious. Whether or not Wilson has taken sides in the feud, it's clear that she doesn't have beef with the Sussexes at least.
Wilson has poked fun at the royals before. For instance, while presenting at the BAFTAs in 2020, she made an intentionally awkward reference to the scandalized Prince Andrew, which was greeted by gasps and extremely stiff smiles from Prince William and Kate Middleton, who were in the audience, per Daily Beast. It's probably best to remember that Wilson is a comedic actor, and sometimes it is just her job to gently mock people, even members of the royal family.
