• Prince Harry's blood on hands comment must not have sat well with Donald Trump
  • The POTUS won't pay for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's security 
  • Meghan Markle once called Trump divisive and misogynistic

Donald Trump just said that he will not be paying for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s security now that they have relocated to the United States.

"I am a great friend and admirer of the Queen & the United Kingdom. It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada. Now they have left Canada for the U.S. however, the U.S. will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!” he tweeted.

While speaking with BBC News, royal author Angela Levin said that the POTUS’s statement isn’t surprising because the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are no longer official members of the royal family.

But when they were, Trump shouldered part of the security cost when Markle flew to the United States for her baby shower. Half of the cost was paid for by British taxpayers.

“Also, I suspect he does not like the fact that Harry was caught out saying that he has blood on his hands when there was this leak on his phone, and he thought he was talking to Greta Thunberg and her father. I think if somebody calls you that, particularly if you have a nature like Mr. Trump, you feel a bit resentful about offering to pay,” Levin said.

Four years ago, Markle also sat down for an interview with Daily Mail’s Tom Leonard and said that Trump is divisive and misogynistic. Years later, the president responded to Markle’s shade and he was obviously not pleased.

Royal author Ingrid Seward also said that Trump’s decision to not shoulder the couple’s security cost isn’t surprising because Markle has snubbed him during his visits to the United Kingdom on multiple occasions. Prince Harry was there but he reportedly looked grumpy as though he wanted to be elsewhere.

“Whatever his personal feelings, it’s his duty to support the Queen regardless and take a tip from his grandmother who has never allowed her personal feelings to interfere with her duty. It’s bad manners and rude,” Seward said.
