Meghan Markle was a no-show at the Buckingham Palace banquet for President Trump’s state visit to England.
According to NY Post, The president called the former American actress “nasty” in an interview with a British newspaper.
Meghan Markle is currently on maternity leave. Markle recently gave birth to her and Prince Harry’s first child, Archie, earlier in May.
Kate Middleton was in attendance at the banquet as were Trump’s adult children.
The American-born Markle also missed a royal luncheon at the palace with Trump and first lady Melania Trump earlier Monday – although Prince Harry attended.
In an interview with The Sun, Trump was asked about Markle referring to him as “misogynistic” and “divisive” and her claim that she would move to Canada if he was elected president in 2016.
“I didn’t know that. What can I say? I didn’t know that she was nasty,” he said, according to the newspaper.
When asked about the topic, Trump soon disputed that he had made the remark at all, despite the interview being recorded. He also praised Meghan and wished her well following the birth of her son.
