The US President Donald Trump has accused the Duchess of Sussex of being “disrespectful” to the Queen and her family.
In an interview with the politician-turned-broadcaster Nigel Farage, Trump said he thought the Duke of Sussex had been “used horribly.”
The interview with Trump, 75, whose presidency ended in January 2021, took place in Florida on Monday and was broadcast on GB News.
Speaking about Meghan, Trump said: “I’m not a fan of hers. I was not from day one, and I think someday he will regret it.”
In response to comments about Meghan using Duchess of Sussex headed writing paper to lobby members of Congress, Trump, the first US officeholder to be impeached twice, said: “She is trying to do things that I think are inappropriate.”
The news said he told Farage: “I think she’s very disrespectful to the royal family and most importantly to the Queen.”
During the interview, Trump described the Queen as “a great woman, such a great person, a historical person.”
GB News said the interview featured Trump talking about Boris Johnson, the presidential election, events at the US Capitol on 6 January, Black Lives Matter, the migration crisis in the US and the UK, Antifa, and the question of whether he would run for office again.
He warned Johnson he was making a “big mistake” by backing “ridiculous” windfarms to drive the UK’s push to a net-zero-carbon economy.
The US president said he still liked the British prime minister but claimed he was wrong to support wind energy.
The UK has become a leader in wind energy, mainly offshore, and Johnson has pushed for Britain to wind what Saudi Arabia is to oil in the drive to reach net-zero by 2050.
Investment has led to the largest wind farm, Hornsea One, built off the East Yorkshire coast in the North Sea.
But Trump said the UK was destroying its landscape by allowing the turbines to be installed.
He said: “He’s wrong; Boris is wrong if he’s going heavy into the wind. He’s making a big mistake.”
