Meghan Markle and Prince Harry sparked global headlines following their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey which aired on CBS and ITV last month. John Lydon, who goes by the stage name Johnny Rotten, famously belted out anarchist songs for the Sex Pistols and is known for their punk rock song God Save The Queen.

The 65-year-old has since hit out at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex following their candid conversation about royal life.

The former punk rocker admitted he doesn’t blame Meghan and Harry quitting as senior royals last year but believed the couple has gone about things in the wrong way.

Speaking in a new interview, John took aim at the pair’s bid for privacy as he claimed they should “mind their own business”.

His comments come after it was announced that Meghan and Harry’s Finding Freedom biography is expected to get a reboot this summer and lift the lid on the royal drama.

Speaking about their recent interview, John said: “It seems like petulance when they flutter their wings and cry ‘freedom’ but it’s not. They’re seriously prisoners.

“Everybody seems ever so willing to adopt a side and be spiteful with it.”

He added: “My advice to them is they should mind their own business too, and if you want out of the public awareness then don’t go on the Oprah show. It can only end badly for you.”

The Sex Pistols frontman added that putting themselves out there would lead to more scrutiny and less privacy.

“You don’t put your head in the guillotine or the chopping block, dears, because someone will quite happily press that button,” John continued to The Times.

“Listen, there’s many a McDonald’s both here and in Britain that are more than willing to take on either one or both of them and then they can be truly independent earning their own money.”

John has previously been vocal about the Royal Family in his earlier years when he fronted the Sex Pistols.

But he has appeared to make a U-turn on his inflammatory lyrics as he admitted he does feel sorry for them.

The rocker added he has a “sense of empathy” for the royals who are “trapped in gilded cages”.

It has since been reported that Meghan and Harry’s account of the events through friends and Sussex sources – and is now being updated with new chapters in the autobiography Finding Freedom.

The new edition is also said to take in their new life in America, their multimillion-pound deals with Netflix and Spotify and the Queen’s decision to strip them of all royal patronages earlier this year.

Published last summer, Finding Freedom covered the period from 2016, when Meghan and Harry met, to their exit from royal life and move to America last year.

Meanwhile, John has spoken out about the health of his wife Nora Forster’s, 75, Alzheimer’s diagnosis, admitting he has now accepted her condition as “incurable.”

He has explained that despite her knowing his wife’s condition will worsen, they’re facing it together.

The rockstar, who resides in Venice, California, has vowed to be his partner’s full-time carer.

While he primarily lives in the United States, John has kept his residence in the UK.
