Prince Harry Attends Meeting With Trump After His 'Nasty' Meghan Markle Remark

Prince Harry joined his grandmother Queen Elizabeth for a scheduled meeting with President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump on Monday. The meeting happened shortly after Trump insisted that he had not said anything "bad" about Harry’s wife, Meghan Markle.

Over the weekend, The Sun published an interview with Trump in which he expressed surprise that Meghan had labeled him "misogynistic" and "divisive" in the lead-up to the presidential election.

"I didn’t know that she was nasty," Trump said of Meghan.

He later tweeted out: "I never called Meghan Markle 'nasty.' Made up by the Fake News Media, and they got caught cold! Will @CNN, @nytimes and others apologize? Doubt it!"

An aide later told HuffPost that Trump had been referring to Meghan’s comments, not Meghan herself.

Sunday night, Trump told reporters, "I made no bad comment."


After attending a private lunch with the Queen, Harry reportedly joined the Trumps, his daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner to view an exhibit in the Picture Gallery.

After entering, Harry made a beeline for Earl Peel, the Lord Chamberlain, People reports.

He and Meghan reportedly opted out of the state dinner with Trump Monday evening.
