US President Donald Trump sat down for an interview with Fox News on Friday evening where he discussed the ongoing issue with Iran and upcoming impeachment trial in the Senate. He also spoke out about the American royal in the British Royal Family and his admiration for Her Majesty The Queen.
Host Laura Ingram asked the President, who has previously expressed thoughts on the American Duchess, his opinion on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s bombshell revelation earlier this week that they were to step back from their senior royal roles and work to become financially independent.
The President admitted he did not “want to get into the whole thing” regarding whether or not Harry and Meghan should return to the United Kingdom (the pair have revealed they plan to split their time between the UK and North America), but he did reveal, “I just have such respect for the Queen, I don’t think this should be happening to her.”
Ingram asked if he had any advice on handling the ‘rogue royals’ for Her Majesty The Queen to which he replied, “I think it’s sad. I do. I think it’s sad. She’s a great woman.”
He then added more praise on Queen Elizabeth II, speaking of how she’s been on the throne since she was 25, saying, “She’s never made a mistake if you look. I mean, she’s had like a flawless time.”
He also said about her, “We have a very great relationship,” adding that when he visited her in London, he was only supposed to meet with her for 15 minutes, but she wanted him to stay longer.
He has previously called The Queen a “tremendous woman” and has met her on several occasions during his tenure as President of the United States, including a state visit last June.
In the past, President Trump revealed how he felt Meghan had treated him, “She was nasty to me. And that’s OK for her to be nasty. It’s not good for me to be nasty to her and I wasn’t.”
He would later call her “nice” and forgive her for what she had said about him in the past before she was a member of the Royal Family.
