Trump says he didn't talk to Prince Harry about 'nasty' Meghan comment

"Like, 'I think, Priy, they meant that they wanted someone who's not brown, '" her agent then reportedly explained. It's not good for me to be nasty to her. "I hope she is OK".

Just before Trump's visit to the royal family, an audio clip was released of the President slamming the Duchess of Sussex.

It is only that her higher profile now attracts more publicity, and some may think that Markle is trying to burnish her credentials. "And that's okay for her to be nasty, it's not good for me to be nasty to her and I wasn't", according to the Daily Mail. And I said, 'Well, I didn't know she was nasty.' I wasn't referring to she's nasty.

Asked whether relations between him and the Duke of Sussex were frosty at Buckingham Palace this week, Trump insisted the topic was not mentioned.

U.S. President Donald Trump said Britain's Prince Harry was a terrific guy and denied casting his American-born wife, Meghan, as a nasty person, claiming media had distorted his words as he actually felt she was very nice.

Trump is on a three-day state visit to the United Kingdom where he was greeted by the Queen and the other members of the Royal Family at Buckingham Palace today. He has not met Markle during his stay, but has spent time with Queen Elizabeth II and other members of the royal family, including Markle's husband Prince Harry.

"I was going to [speak with him about it] because it was so falsely put out there".

Needless to say, we'll offer up a smaller but still-sweet headline: this will mark Prince Harry's first year being celebrated as a father on Father's Day.

It is unclear quite how much conversation Trump personally had with Prince Harry, although he stressed the royal had spoken "a lot" to his daughter, Ivanka.

He responded to her damning comments: "I didn't know she was nasty". "And I wasn't. And, in fact, I think she's doing very well".

On Wednesday, Trump addressed the furor during an exclusive TV interview with former newspaper editor and CNN presenter Morgan on ITV's breakfast show, "Good Morning Britain".

He called the state banquet at Buckingham Palace one of the highlights of his life and said his late mother "would have been proud" because she was a huge fan of the Queen of England.
