New mother Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex has opted herself out of the British royal family’s meeting with the president of the United States Donald Trump and the First Lady Melania Trump. The royal family is scheduled to visit the United Kingdom in early June, 2019. Queen Elizabeth II will be the host for Trump and his wife during their three day visit in June, 2019.
This will also mark the first official visit of the US president to the UK. Harry is scheduled to have a private lunch with the US president and William while Prince William and Kate Middleton will have tea on his second day in the country. Kate and William will also be joining Prince Charles, Duchess Camilla and Trump for a welcome ceremony to be held at the Buckingham Palace. Reports say that Meghan will not be making an appearance at any of these events.
Meghan has just given birth to her son Archie and during all these engagements, the former Hollywood actress will be spending time and resting with son at the Frogmore Cottage. Archie and Meghan are enjoying privacy and peace. However, the Duchess of Sussex has not yet made an official statement about it and is probably not upset about missing it as she is definitely not a Trump fan.
Meghan Markle is known to be a proud feminist and had made her stance on Trump clear during the presidential elections in 2016. She had described Trump’s politics as misogynistic and divisive and had then spoken about her support for Hillary Clinton. The former Hollywood actress had appeared in The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore three years back and said, “Its really the moment I go: we film Suits in Toronto and I might just stay in Canada… Trump is divisive, think about female voters alone, right?” Meghan is currently on a maternity leave and is busy taking care of son Archie.
