President Donald Trump is no fan of Meghan Markle, though he’s certainly not alone.
Asked during a White House press briefing this Wednesday about Markle and her husband, Prince Harry, reportedly encouraging Americans to vote for his opponent, Joe Biden, in the 2020 race, the president unleashed a savage uppercut.
“I’m not a fan of hers. And I would say this and she probably has heard that, but I wish a lot of luck to Harry because he’s going to need it,” he said.

What made the line savage was Markle’s history of being a difficult, “nasty” woman. So much so that she’s reportedly acquired the nickname “Duchess Difficult.”
“The nickname has been used to describe the Duchess of Sussex in the tabloids since she married Prince Harry in 2018 — a reference to what many suggested were demanding behaviors exhibited by Markle towards palace staff and other royal family members,” Insider notes.
Unnamed sources who spoke with The Daily Telegraph this past summer described Markle as an overbearing celebrity wannabe.
“Meghan is clearly someone who knows what she wants and is very self-assured. But that made her very difficult to work for. At times she could show extraordinary kindness and be very sweet but at others she was very self-centered and lacking in any self-awareness,” the sources reportedly said.
“She would say: ‘Why do we have to do this?’ or simply: ‘I’m not doing this’. She didn’t understand that there were not just jobs she had to do but that she should do. She was behaving like a celebrity in firing off early morning emails and making huge demands of staff.”
The problem is that Prince Harry allows it. During one internal feud that occurred during the preparations to the couple’s wedding in 2018, he reportedly told one of the Queen’s closest aides, “What Meghan wants, Meghan gets.”
The same accusation emerged when the couple suddenly decided out of nowhere earlier this year to quit the Royal Family and set off on some bizarre, unprecedented personal journey:

Queen Elizabeth II and other senior royals were reportedly “hurt” and “devastated” by the announcement and the backhanded way in which the couple had made it.
Reports at the time suggested the royal couple hoped to relocate to Los Angeles, California once President Donald Trump leaves office. As of September 2020, the two are reportedly now in LA, though Trump still remains the president.
However, the couple has begun encouraging Americans to vote Trump out of office.
Speaking together this week during an ABC News broadcast special meant to announce Time magazine’s “2020 Time 100” list, the couple broke the “protocol for members of the royal family to get involved in politics” by encouraging Americans to vote this year, according to Time.
And while they didn’t name names, the impression they gave was clear.

“As we approach this November, it’s vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity,” they said.
Because of dubious, Democrat-manufactured allegations that the president engages in all three, everybody took the remarks to be an endorsement of Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, ergo the question the president was asked Wednesday:
“Prince Harry and Meghan Markle chimed in on the US election, and essentially encouraged people to vote for Joe Biden. Let me get your reaction to that.”
Plus, Markle has reportedly teamed up with former first lady Michelle Obama, a known anti-Trump zealot, for her “When We All Vote” campaign.

Trump and Markle have never really been on friendly terms, though certainly not because of a lack of effort by the president and his family.
After the couple’s wedding, the president’s daughter Ivanka congratulated the two:

She did so despite Markle having trashed Ivanka’s father a year earlier.
“Yes, of course Trump is divisive. Think about just female voters alone. I mean, like, I think it was in 2012, like, the Republican Party lost the female vote by 12 points. That’s a huge number,” she said during a Comedy Central appearance in 2017.
“And with as misogynistic as Trump is and so vocal about it, that’s a huge chunk about it. You’re not just voting for a woman if it’s Hillary because she’s a woman, but certainly because Trump has made it easy to see that you don’t really want that kind of world that he’s painting.”
Upon learning about these remarks in the summer of 2019, the president described them as “nasty,” thus setting off a media firestorm of false allegations that he’d referred to Markle herself as “nasty.”
“She was nasty to me, and that’s OK for her to be nasty. It’s not good for me to be nasty to her, and I wasn’t,” he said.
And he hasn’t been.
In an interview with Piers Morgan in early 2018, he described the rogue royals as a “lovely couple” and wished them the best.
“I want them to be happy, I really want them to be happy,” he said.
But it doesn’t appear that the me-, me-, me-focused princess has wished the same for him, the queen or really anybody else who’s not named Meghan Markle.
