Speaking on US chat show The Talk, Osbourne didn’t hold back, but also said the couple should be “able to do what they want to do”.

She said: "I bet you they end up in LA in no time.

"Meghan wants the celebrity life. Look at the people that were at her wedding. She wants it all.

"They will make a fortune. They have already.

"You knew what you were doing, you got what you wanted, and now you don't like it.”

Harsh words, Mrs Osbourne.

She added: "But it is a new generation. They should be able to do what they want. It’s 2020. However, his family are royal, for thousands of years.

"And to respect that family, you go to your family; you tell them how you feel; you say, let’s sort this out.

"The Queen has said that within the next 18 months she’s going to retire, which means that Harry‘s dad, Prince Charles will be king. So, you know what, you wait until the Queen’s retired."

The 67-year-old also questioned Markle’s “choice” of going through life with just her mother around.

She said: “And remember one thing, Meghan has chosen to go through life without her family, just her mum. Now, if you alienate your Royal Family, your child will grow up with just you and one grandma. And that is not a good idea for anyone.”

Osbourne ended her comments with a further prediction: “She’ll end up doing something with Oprah and Michelle Obama.”
