Colbert asked him if he was excited about the then-upcoming wedding between Prince Harry and Markle and he said:

''No. I would not blame her if she pulled out of this at the last minute. I do not think you need to have just seen the pilot episode of The Crown to get a basic sense she might be marrying into a family that could cause her so many emotional complications.''

The father of two also joked about how the royal family still practices things that seem a bit odd for grownups in this generation.

''They are an emotionally stunted group of fundamentally flawed people doing a very silly pseudo job and that is what she is marrying into so I hope she likes it. It is going to be weird for her.
I would not marry into the royal family, I am a commoner,'' he added.

''Yes! They have all of these weird ‘rules’ that are not really rules. Also, would you really want your grandmother in law to dictate what you can and cannot do?''
