Donald Trump blasts Meghan Markle's 'very disrespectful' treatment of the Queen

Donald Trump has lashed out at Meghan Markle, saying her treatment of Queen Elizabeth was "very disrespectful".

Speaking to Nigel Farage on GB News in the UK, the former US president and Celebrity Apprentice host said Meghan had "no reason to do that" when talking about their relationship before her death in September last year. 

"I think she [Meghan] has been very disrespectful to the Queen. How can you be so disrespectful to the Queen?" Trump said.

"[The Queen] was incredible, for decades and decades she never made a mistake. I cannot think of a mistake she made, she was never controversial. You cannot be disrespectful to her and I think Meghan was very disrespectful to her, very disrespectful."

However, in the preview clip ahead of the airing of the interview on Thursday night (UK time), Trump didn't qualify his comments with any particular moments he believed Meghan had been disrespectful.

He also blasted Prince Harry over his treatment of the monarchy, saying that he thought the Duke of Sussex shouldn't have been invited to his father King Charles' coronation this coming weekend.

Trump also said he had high hopes for the Coronation itself and the reign of King Charles. 

"I think it's going to be a great day, I think they will do a great job and he [Charles] loves the country. I got to know him [Charles] quite well and he loves the country, really loves the country, and he loved his mother. 

"I was actually surprised that Harry was invited, to be honest.

"Prince Harry said some terrible things, when you see what he said, the book to me was horrible." 

It's not the first time the former US President has unleashed on Prince Harry and his wife - in 2021 he said the Duke had been "used horribly" by Meghan.

"I'm not a fan of hers. I wasn't from day one. I think Harry has been used horribly and I think some day he will regret it," Trump said.

"I think Harry's been used and been used terribly. I think it's ruined his relationship with his family, and it hurts the Queen."
