Meghan Markle has broken her silence following the apology over Jeremy Clarkson’s comments. A spokesperson for the Duchess has said the apology is “nothing more than a PR stunt”.

The statement, which was released by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s team, comes as The Sun issued an apology for their regret over posting the disturbing column by Jeremy Clarkson.

A statement from a spokesperson for Harry and Meghan shared with the PA news agency on Saturday, said: “The fact that the Sun has not contacted The Duchess of Sussex to apologise shows their intent.

“This is nothing more than a PR stunt.”

They added: “While the public absolutely deserves the publication’s regrets for their dangerous comments, we wouldn’t be in this situation if The Sun did not continue to profit off of and exploit hate, violence and misogyny.”

The team claimed they aren’t “holding our breath” for a direct apology towards the Duchess.

The team added: “A true apology would be a shift in their coverage and ethical standards for all.”

IPSO claimed that the piece received more than 17,500 complaints as of 9am on December 20.

This number had risen to 20,800.

The piece was taken offline on Monday at Mr Clarkson’s request.
