In a recent interview on "The Hugh Hewitt Show," former U.S. President Donald Trump voiced his intention to engage in a debate with Meghan Markle, citing his disapproval of how the Duchess of Suss*x allegedly treated the late Queen Elizabeth II during her tenure within the British royal family.

Trump didn't mince words as he criticized the Duke and Duchess of Suss*x for their decision to step down from their roles as senior working royals in 2020. He referred to their actions as "disrespectful" toward Queen Elizabeth, expressing his strong disapproval, stating, "I didn't like the way she dealt with the Queen." This isn't the first time Trump has publicly criticized Meghan Markle.

He had previously voiced his opinions during an interview with Nigel Farage on GB News, asserting that Meghan had shown a lack of respect toward the Queen. Trump emphasized his admiration for Queen Elizabeth, applauding her decades of rule without controversy.

During his presidency, Trump had the opportunity to meet Queen Elizabeth during his state visit to the UK in 2019, where he praised her sharp intellect. He contrasted the Queen with his political opponent at the time, President Joe Biden, suggesting that the latter inhabited a different realm.

Trump's Ongoing Critique of Meghan

Trump's desire to debate Meghan Markle has emerged as he expresses strong disagreements with the couple's actions and public statements about the royal family, including Prince Harry's upcoming memoir, "Spare," and their Netflix docuseries, "Harry & Meghan." In addition to his recent comments, Trump has previously opined that Prince Harry is being led by Meghan and speculated about their marriage's future.

He has consistently criticized Meghan Markle for her treatment of Queen Elizabeth and the royal family. As the one-year anniversary of Queen Elizabeth's passing approaches, Trump reminisced about his time spent with her during his visit to the UK, describing their conversations as having "good chemistry" and praising the Queen's sharp mind.

Furthermore, Trump expressed surprise at Prince Harry's invitation to King Charles III's coronation, given his previous statements and the release of his memoir, "Spare," which Trump deemed "horrible." The ongoing public discourse surrounding the Duke and Duchess of Suss*x's relationship with the royal family continues to generate interest and controversy, drawing global attention and scrutiny. Trump's willingness to debate Meghan Markle on these issues only adds fuel to the fire of this ongoing narrative.
