People around the world have been weighing in on Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex’s relationship since they began dating. Now, former U.S. President Donald Trump is giving his thoughts on the royal couple. 

Donald Trump thinks Prince Harry and Meghan Markle should be stripped of their titles

In an interview with Piers Morgan, Trump claimed Harry “is being led around by his nose” by Meghan. “Harry is whipped,” Trump said. “Harry is whipped like no other person I think I’ve seen.”

“I’m not a fan of Meghan,” he continued. “I’m not a fan and I wasn’t right from the beginning. I think poor Harry is being led around by his nose. And I think he’s an embarrassment. And I think she spoke badly of the royal family but in particular the Queen.”

Trump met Queen Elizabeth while he was serving as president and says they got along very well: “She liked me and I liked her.”

The former president also said he thinks Harry and Meghan should lose their royal titles because of their behavior toward the royal family. 

“I would [take their titles away],” he said. “The only thing I disagree with the Queen on probably one of the only things ever is that I think she would have said, ‘If that’s your choice, fine. But you now longer have titles.’ You know?”

“‘I think that [Harry] has been so disrespectful to the country, and [the UK is] a great country,” Trump continued. “I own a lot of things there.”

Donald Trump thinks Prince Harry and Meghan’s marriage will ‘end bad’

Trump also gave his thoughts on the state of Harry and Meghan’s marriage, saying he thinks it won’t last because of the stress they both have endured due to their exile from Harry’s native United Kingdom. 

“So, I want to know what’s going to happen when Harry decides he’s had enough of being bossed around,” he mused. “Or maybe when she decides that she likes some other guy better. I want to know what’s going to happen when it ends, OK?”

“I do [think the relationship will end],” Trump concluded. “I’ve been a very good predictor, as you know. I predicted almost everything. It’ll end and it’ll end bad. And I wonder if Harry’s gonna go back on his hands and knees, back into the beautiful city of London and say, ‘Please.’ You know, I think Harry has been led down a path.”

Donald Trump Invited Meghan Markle to One of His Golf Courses Before She Joined the Royal Family

Trump’s feelings about Meghan might be because of a more personal reason. When he traveled to England to meet with the royal family in 2019, she was noticeably absent from the events. 

Some pointed to the fact that she was technically still on maternity leave after giving birth to her first child, Archie. Others thought it was probably due to the fact that Meghan had previously made it clear she disagreed with Trump’s politics. In 2016, she even went so far as to say she might move to Canada after he was elected president. 

While there are many rumors about Harry and Meghan’s marriage, Trump’s comments on the pair seem unfounded; they appear to be enjoying their time away from the life of the royal family.
