President Trump is setting the record straight between him and Prince Harry during the President’s State visit.
Many fans were eager to see United States President Donald Trump to travel across the pond to meet with the adored British Royal Family. But to everyone’s surprise, things took a turn within moments of the President’s arrival.
On Friday, notable media outlet, The Sun, published an interview Friday in which Trump was asked about former American turned royal, Meghan Markle. During the interview, the reporter Brough up Megan Marle, “Meghan, who is now the Duchess of Sussex, we have given her a different name, she can’t make it because she is on maternity leave. Are you sorry not to see her because she wasn’t so nice about you during the campaign? I don’t know if you saw that.”
President Trump, who admitted that he had no clue Megan Markle had ever publicly spoken about him, responded, “I don’t know that. No. I didn’t know that.” He continued, “No, I hope she’s okay. I did not know that, no.”
The reported pressed the President further, saying “She said she’d move to Canada if you got elected. Turns out she moved to Britain.” Trump simply replied, “That’ll be good. There are a lot of people moving here so what can I say?” But then, just as he was almost finished making his remark, he said, “No I didn’t know that she was nasty.”
Within a moment, the room went silent and the interest went viral. The President’s comments went viral. While he went on to say that he believes Meghan Markle is “very good” as Royalty, his wrongful word choice had already been heard by millions.
Later that evening, tensions appeared high as Donald Trump and Prince Harry, Meghan’s husband, were in the same room with each other. The Prince was noticeably fidgety and looked extremely uncomfortable. Fans wondered just how intense their interaction was.
One day later, President Trump is revealing how the interaction between the and Harry really went and it’s nothing at all what we expected. According to an interview with The Daily Mail by British broadcaster Piers Morgan, President Trump shared warm words of the Prince. He even went out of his way to say that Prince Harry was a “terrific guy” and denied that the Royal tried to avoid him at Buckingham Palace.
He also returned to his remarks about Meghan Markle, who branded him a misogynist in 2016, saying she 'was nasty to me - and that's OK'.
Well, it might not all be swept under the rug, but given the respectful nature of the Royal Family, we’ll likely never hear about this from Harry’s end. We just hope that they settled this difficult experience.
