'I think she'll bolt' - Germaine Greer paints bleak picture of royal life for Meghan Markle once married to Prince Harry

Australian writer and feminist Germaine Greer has given a bleak view of life for Meghan Markle after she marries Prince Harry on May 20. 

In an interview with 60 Minutes Australia, Ms Greer said she thought the greatest challenge for Meghan Markle will be "just putting up" with life in the royal family.

"She will see vistas of boredom that are unbelievable."

"The royal family are awfully good at divorce, [it's] everywhere, and painful and horrible, but it's nearly always a question of a non-royal running for the hills."

Ms Greer said she wished Prince Harry and Ms Markle "all the best I hope they have a wonderful life together", however she thought Ms Markle would "bolt". 

"I think she'll bolt. I hope in a way that she’ll bolt but maybe she’ll take Harry with her."

She said she hoped the couple would "stay with it for as long as it lasts, why not? But [Markle shouldn't] stay for the bad bit, be prepared to go when it gets bad."
