Joy Behar thinks Meghan Markle knew what she was getting into: 'She said I want to be a princess'

If Meghan Markle is looking for a shoulder to cry on, she probably shouldn’t turn to Joy Behar.

Markle and her husband Prince Harry’s recent declaration of independence from the royal family —dubbed “Mexit” by British tabloids — has garnered sympathy from many who saw a couple hounded by the press and criticized at every turn.

“Imagine having to go up against a place like the royal family and Buckingham Palace,” said the View co-host Abby Huntsman.

Behar disagreed and interrupted. “Oh, come on. She did it,” said Behar. “She said, ‘hey, I want to be a princess’ so now she’s a princess,” she added.

“I don’t think she said she wanted to be a princess, I think she just wanted to marry Harry, and he just happened to be a prince,” countered guest co-host, actress Yvette Nicole Brown.

“What a coincidence — he’s a prince!” joked Behar.
