Prince Harry 'Couldn't Have Been Nicer,' President Trump Says
The president shot down reports that Harry snubbed him because he called Meghan Markle "nasty."
Prince William, Kate Middleton and Prince Harry have not been seen in a single photo with President Trump during his visit to England.
A new report in the Daily Beast claims they denied Trump a photo op, which is what he wanted most.
William and Kate attended the lavish state dinner at the palace but were seated far from the president. Harry skipped the banquet and was seen just once chatting with Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter, seemingly keeping his distance from the president.
The Daily Beast describes Harry as having “a face like thunder."
When the Obamas came to London in 2016, the reception was much different. The royals invited them to a private dinner at their home and even introduced them to young Prince George.
The president was asked about the apparent snub in an interview with his friend Piers Morgan for “Good Morning Britain.”
“Did you get a chance to talk to Prince Harry?” Morgan asked.
“I did, I congratulated him,” Trump claimed. “I think he's a terrific guy.”
He was also asked if he believed the prince had a problem with him.
"No," Trump said. "The opposite, he spent a lot of time talking to my family, Ivanka and I went up to him, he couldn't have been nicer."
Could the frosty reception have had something to do with the president calling Meghan Markle nasty?
“I didn’t know she said anything bad about me and she did and that's OK," Trump said. "I wasn't referring to her being nasty. I said she was nasty about me, but you know what? She's doing a good job.”
Morgan told Inside Edition there was no snub and the visit was all about the queen.
“Over here there is a very clear pecking order,” he said. “The queen is No. 1; No. 2 is her son, the future king, and they were on display the entire time.”
On the last day of their visit to the United Kingdom, the Trumps attended a commemoration of D-Day in Portsmouth, where the troops embarked for the assault on Normandy Beach 75 years ago.
