A few years ago, the U.S. President referred to the Duchess of Sussex as a “villain” in an interview with the tabloid “The Sun”.
U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday expressed “sadness” at the crisis facing the British royal family after Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle decided to withdraw from the monarchy.
“I think it’s sad, really,” Trump told Fox News.
“I just have so much respect for the Queen,” he added. ” She’s an extraordinary woman. If you look closely, she’s never made a mistake. She’s had a flawless reign. »
The Republican billionaire became in June the third US president to be entitled to a state visit to the United Kingdom after George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
Shortly before his departure for London, he caused quite a stir when he described the Duchess of Sussex as a “villain” in an interview with the British tabloid The Sun. He later tried to rectify the situation, accusing the media of misrepresenting her.
During the American presidential campaign, Meghan Markle was very critical of the real estate tycoon.
