Meghan Markle, Prince Harry and Amy Schumer have something in common. All three are entering a new stage in life called “marriage,” and while this chapter can be overwhelming – especially for a Hollywood star entering the royal fold – Amy is here to ease their worries with some poignant advice, and it’s pretty hilarious.
The I Feel Pretty star beat Meghan and Harry to the punch in February when she wed chef Chris Fischer, and despite only being married for a couple months, she does have some tips. “Just keep it real guys, keep it real. That’s what I would say to them. Don’t go changing,” she shared with ET Canada. “I feel very connected to Meghan Markle. We are basically the same person.”
Even though her statement was likely meant as a joke, she’s not too far off. Though Amy is not British royalty, she and Meghan have both navigated Hollywood and probably do have more than a few things in common – more than just being head-over-heels in love with their respective life partners and their pooch pals.
The 36-year-old comedian also shared her favourite part about being married to Chris: “The best part is just having a partner and being like ‘I got a team,’” Amy gushed to E! News. “It was just me and [my dog] Tatiana and now it’s cool. You got someone to go through life with together that you love and you want to be partnered up with.”
The royal couple-to-be make a pretty great team, too, having stepped out together on numerous royal engagement before exchanging vows. Though Harry and Meghan had to keep their relationship tightly under wraps for their first year of dating, they haven’t shied away from putting their love for one another on full display since their engagement announcement back in November. With similar causes close to their hearts, royal watchers are anticipating some amazing things to come from the likely future Duke and Duchess of Sussex .
