The Duchess of Sussex has previously been very outspoken about Mr Trump, branding him “divisive” and “misogynistic” on US talk show The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore during the 2016 presidential election. She also pledged that she would vote for his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton and even threatened to leave the country for Canada if Mr Trump won the election – which, then of course he did. However, Meghan instead met Harry and married into the Royal Family, requiring her to move to the UK full-time.
But the Duke and Duchess of Sussex recently stepped down as senior royals and in their statement claimed that they will be splitting their time between the UK and “North America”, conspicuously not specifying which nation in North America.
Recent reports have suggested that Meghan’s real dream is to move back to Los Angeles, but only after Mr Trump’s presidency ends.
Last year, President Trump came to the UK on a state visit, during which he was received by numerous members of the Royal Family – but not Meghan.
Officially this is because she was on maternity leave with newborn Archie, but it has been suggested the pair may have been kept apart to avoid an awkward confrontation.

Just days before touching down on UK soil and meeting Queen Elizabeth II, Mr Trump responded with shock at what he called “nasty” comments from Meghan about him, according to The Sun.
He said: “I didn’t know that. What can I say? I didn’t know she was nasty.”
What’s more, when told Meghan said she would move to Canada if he won in 2016, Mr Trump quipped: “A lot of people moving here [to the US].”
When told he would not be meeting Meghan on his three-day visit, he said: “I didn’t know that. I hope she is OK.”
