The President of the United States, Donald Trump, has used the adjective ‘nasty’ to describe the Duchess of Sussex just a week before he arrives in the UK for a State Visit.

President Trump said that Meghan’s comments about the American leader have been “nasty”, but added his praises for the 37-year-old.

Before she became royal, Meghan publicly crisitised Mr Trump describing him as being “misogynistic” and “divisive.”

Speaking to The Sun, President Trump said: “I didn’t know that. What can I say? I didn’t know that she was nasty.”

He also revealed that he has no indication that he would not be meeting the Duchess during his visit, saying: “I didn’t know that. I hope she is OK.”

Mr Trump then went on to praise the Duchess, saying she will make “a very good” American princess.

He added: “It is nice, and I am sure she will do excellently.

“She will be very good. I hope she does.”
