President Trump has made his feelings towards the Duchess of Sussex known during a press conference at the White House on Wednesday.
The President, who is seeking reelection in November’s election, said that he wishes Prince Harry a lot of luck because “he’s gonna need it.”
When asked by a reporter what he makes of the fact Meghan has seemingly endorsed rival Joe Biden, the President said: “I’m not a fan of hers.”
He continued: “I wish a lot of luck to Harry, cos he’s gonna need it.”

The President’s remarks came a few hours after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex urged American voters to “reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity.”
Meghan called the presidential race the “most important election of our lifetime.”
Despite an American journalist claiming at the press conference that Meghan had endorsed Joe Biden, in actual fact, neither she or Harry had endorsed any candidate.
When approached for comment about Prince Harry’s remarks, a Buckingham Palace spokesperson said: “We would not comment.
“The Duke is not a working member of the Royal Family and any comments he makes are made in a personal capacity.”
The next election takes place on November 3rd, with Donald Trump aiming to be reelected for a second term in the White House.
His Democratic Party rival, Joe Biden, bids to become the oldest sitting President in US history.
A spokesperson for Harry and Meghan said that comments made by the couple did not refer to any specific political party or candidate and was “a call for decency”.
Prince Harry said: “As we approach this November, it’s vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity.”
“When the bad outweighs the good, for many, whether we realise it or not, it erodes our ability to have compassion and our ability to put ourself in someone else’s shoes.
“Because when one person buys into negativity online, the effects are felt exponentially. It’s time to not only reflect, but act.”
