Former 45th President of the United States of America Donald Trump spoke about his visit to the royal banquet in 2019 and meeting with Queen Elizabeth, on Piers Morgan’s new talk show.
Former US President Donald Trump made a stunning statement about Queen Elizabeth and Duchess of Cornwall Camilla during an interview with Piers Morgan in the debut episode of his talk show Piers Morgan Uncensored on the new channel TalkTV.
He said that Queen Elizabeth and Duchess of Cornwall Camilla were “competing against each other” at the Royal Banquet during his visit in 2019.
The controversial Republican visited Buckingham Palace in June 2019 with his wife Melania and older children.
He has also asserted that the Queen and the Duchess of Cornwall both wanted to get his attention when he visited the Palace in 2019.
They attended a royal banquet where the Queen and Camilla were present. They both were reportedly seated on either side of the former President.
During the time of his state visit to the UK, there were numerous anti-Trump uprisings held against the debatable leader’s arrival.
Trump’s interview with Piers Morgan
During the interview, Trump claimed: “She [Camilla] was on my right, the Queen was on my left, and I said ‘Queen, I really have to talk to Camilla for a little while too’. We couldn’t break apart.
While speaking about his experience meeting the Queen, the former US President said that he “had a good time”.
“[Camilla] was funny, she was smart, she was quick, she was great. I like her too. I like Charles.”
He also claimed that the Queen had never had “such a good time” and that she was laughing and smiling throughout the event.
Trump said: “And I sat next to her and we talked the whole night. And somebody said we’ve never seen her smile so much. We had a great time. She was laughing and smiling.
“They said they’ve never seen her have such a good time at a state dinner. You know, normally they’re a little boring. Okay, this wasn’t boring.”
He added that he has a lot of esteem for the Queen, that she is extraordinary and loves her country.
Morgan asked Trump if he believed Prince Charles and Camilla would make a good King and Queen, to which he replied: “I hope so. I think it’s going to be tricky because they are truly replacing a legend when you talk about this woman [the Queen].”
Trump’s opinion on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
In the Talk TV interview, Mr Trump attacked Prince Harry’s ‘terrible’ choice to miss his grandfather Prince Philip’s commemorating service and said the Duke of Sussex is ‘whipped like no person I think I’ve ever seen.
The ex-US president said it was the ‘worst’ decision that Harry had made, attacked him for being ‘so disrespectful’ and an ’embarrassment’ – and advised the Queen to remove the Duke and his wife Meghan Markle of all their royal titles.
Mr Trump expanded that the Queen should ban Harry from even travelling here in Britain and tell him: ‘Frankly, don’t come around.’
Meanwhile, Donald Trump mocked Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s relationship. “I am not a fan of Meghan, I never was… I think poor Harry is being led around by his nose,” he said.
When Mr Morgan asked if he thinks Harry and Meghan’s marriage is going to end, Mr Trump added: ‘I do. I’ve been a very good predictor as you know. I’ve predicted almost everything. It’ll end and it’ll end badly.
‘And I wonder if Harry’s going to go back on his hands and knees and say “please”. I think Harry has been led down a path.’
‘The only thing I disagree with the Queen on – probably one of the only things ever – is that I think she should have said “if that’s your choice, fine, but you no longer have titles and frankly don’t come around”.
The Sussexes were noticeably missing from Philip’s memorial service at Westminster Abbey last month amid rows between Harry and the Home Office over private safety during visits from their home in the US.
Harry returned for the funeral at St George’s Castle in Windsor Castle After his grandfather died in April 2021 and was said to have expected to travel to the UK for the salutation service on March 29, along with his family.
But references suggested his legal position could have been ‘undermined’ if he had travelled from the US.
Harry brought a High Court claim against the Home Office after being told that he would no longer get the same degree of personal protection while touring the UK, in spite of a subsidy to cover the costs himself.
Mr Morgan spoke to Mr Trump about Harry missing the memorial, saying: ‘I couldn’t believe that he would not go to that, he was at the Super Bowl. He was at a Texas rodeo. But he couldn’t find time to get on a plane.’
He said that the Prince is “whipped” by Meghan and accused Prince Harry of being “so disrespectful to the country”.
