John Lydon Is Fed Up With Meghan Markle, ‘Shut Up’

In a recent interview with The Telegraph, John Lydon, the former frontman of the Sex Pistols, offered some candid advice to Meghan Markle regarding her decision to leave the British Royal Family. Known for his no-holds-barred approach to life, Lydon’s unique perspective on Meghan’s situation has certainly caught the public’s attention.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made headlines when they decided to step down as senior members of the royal family in early 2020. Since their departure, the couple has been candid about their negative experiences within the family, sparking debate and discussion across the globe.

John Lydon, who has a history of leaving the spotlight himself, had some choice words for the Duchess of Sussex in his interview with The Telegraph. He expressed his discontent with how Meghan and Harry continued to discuss their ties to the royal family despite their desire to live outside of it.

In his characteristically blunt fashion, Lydon said:

“If you want to be normal and outside of [the family], then f–k off. Just f–k off and shut up.”

Lydon’s advice to Meghan comes from his own experience of cutting ties with the Sex Pistols, a decision he made in 1978. At the time, the band was at the height of its fame, but Lydon found the situation to be unsustainable. In the same interview, he drew a parallel between his departure from the Sex Pistols and Meghan’s exit from the royal family.

He expressed his experience by saying:

“I’ve had to make decisions like this in the past. I had to leave the Pistols. I had to break up PiL a couple of times because the situation was unsustainable.”

The musician’s candid advice to Meghan Markle serves as a reminder of his own experience with cutting ties and leaving the spotlight. Whether or not the Duchess of Sussex takes Lydon’s remarks to heart, there’s no denying that his straightforward approach to the topic has added another layer of intrigue to the ongoing drama surrounding Meghan and Harry’s departure from the royal family.
