Donald Trump has launched an astonishing barrage of criticism at Meghan Markle – accusing her of ‘disrespecting the Queen’ and ‘horribly’ manipulating Prince Harry.
In an interview to be aired on GB News tonight, the former US president claims the actions of both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in recent years have ‘hurt’ the monarch.
Speaking with former Ukip leader Nigel Farage, Mr Trump admits he has never been a ‘fan’ of Meghan, who he believes has used Prince Harry.
He said: ‘I’m not a fan of hers. I wasn’t from day one. Harry’s use of Harry is horrible and I fear he will one day regret.
During a recorded interview with Nigel Farage, former US President, Donald Trump had a torrent of negative comments about Meghan Markle (pictured).
Trump was criticized for using Harry by Meghan in the latest attack on the Duchess.
‘I think Harry’s been used and been used terribly. I think it’s ruined his relationship with his family, and it hurts the Queen.’
Speaking of the duchess, he added: ‘I think she’s been very disrespectful to the Queen, who’s such a great woman, such a great person, a historic person.
‘I think she’s very disrespectful to the Royal Family and most importantly to the Queen.’
He also said that Meghan was ‘very inappropriate’ when asked by Mr Farage about claims she used her royal title to meddle in US politics, by writing on the Sussexes’ headed paper to lobby Congress members on issues such as paternity leave.
‘She is trying to do things that I think are very inappropriate,’ he said.
Trump spoke also of his love for Queen Elizabeth II, saying that he was brought up to respect the Royal Family by his Scottish mother.

This isn’t the first clash between Trump and the Sussexes. He stated earlier this year that he would run for president in 2024, even if Meghan joined the race.
Mr Trump was commenting on rumours that the duchess was ‘meeting with Democrat operatives [and] she may want to run’.
He told Fox News: ‘I hope that happens because if that happened then I think I’d have an even stronger feeling towards running. I’m not a fan of hers.
‘I’ve met with the Queen and I think the Queen is a tremendous person and I’m not a fan of Meghan.’ Last year he again said he was ‘not a fan’ of Meghan and wished Harry ‘luck’, adding: ‘He’s going to need it.’
These remarks were made September after Joe Biden had accused the Sussexes of interference in the Presidential Election Campaign.
In what was seen as a thinly-veiled swipe at Mr Trump, they urged voters to ‘reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity’.
Trump will likely address the Capitol Hill riot in the interview that airs on GB News
In 2019 Mr Trump called the duchess ‘nasty’ because of her past criticism of him.
On Monday’s interview in Florida, Mr Trump will speak about a variety of topics, including the Capitol Hill Riot in January, and his impending impeachment trial on charges that he incited it. He was later exonerated by the US Senate.
He will be asked about climate change and whether he will run for office again, having hinted early this year that he was ‘very seriously’ considering it.
The programme – Farage: The Trump Interview – will air tonight at 7pm on GB News, with the station promising that ‘nothing is off limits’.
A preview clip with dramatic music shows the duo sitting opposite each other in a grand room with a short quote from Mr Trump saying: ‘I think you’ll be happy in the future too.’
Many years ago, Mr Farage has been friends with Mr Trump. Mr Farage has said the men have much in common because ‘Trump and I have probably been the most reviled people by the liberal media in the world’.
The pair have appeared together on stage before with the former Ukip leader speaking at an election rally in Phoenix, Arizona, last October – where Mr Trump hailed Mr Farage as the ‘king of Europe’.
The talks took place in November 2016. In the end, Mr Farage became the first UK politician ever to meet President Trump after his election win.
Mr Farage promoted the interview on his Twitter feed last night, telling his 1.6million followers: ‘Don’t miss it.’
