It doesn’t look like President Trump is going to be seeing much of Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, during his upcoming state visit.
Ahead of President Trump’s visit to the U.K., the former Meghan Markle’s past remarks prior to becoming part of the royal family criticizing President Trump surfaced, drawing speculation over his time there.
As reports say, the American-born now-turned-royal Meghan previously made a few jokes about switching residency to Canada if Donald Trump were elected during the 2016 presidential election, as she called him “divisive” and “misogynistic.”
However, that does not seem to be the reason why Meghan won’t be meeting with President. Meghan is currently on maternity leave after welcoming her and Prince Harry’s newborn baby, Archie Harrison, to the world.
Nonetheless, the President caught wind of Meghan’s past criticism, as he told The Sun in the Oval Office that he “didn’t know” about her “nasty” comments from before.
“I didn’t know that. What can I say?” President Trump said. “I didn’t know that she was nasty.”
The President was also told he wouldn’t be visiting with the duchess.
“I didn’t know that,” the president said in response. “I hope she is OK.”
President Trump decided not to strike back at Meghan. Instead, the President opted to wish her well as she is now part of the royal family.
“It is nice, and I am sure she will do excellently,” Trump said. “She will be very good. I hope she does (succeed).”
During President Trump’s visit to the U.K., he will also discuss environmental issues with Prince Charles, who he claims that he likes.
“We will be talking. I can say we have among the cleanest climate in the world right now. Our air and water are doing very well. We hope other countries can do so well. You know, it is a big atmosphere and frankly if one country is going to be bad and other countries going to be good, the country that is good gets penalised. Which is unfair.” Trump said.
The President joined by the first lady, is also expected to meet with Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Harry for a private lunch during the visit.
