During the U.S. presidential election, Megan Markle the wife of Prince Harry said she would leave the U.S. if Trump was elected as President of the United States of America. After her marriage to Prince Harry, she left the country and according to reports, they are set to return after their short stay in Canada in which some Canadians voiced anger that the couple had contributed nothing to their temporary home in the short time they have been there.
Early this year, it was reported that Harry and Meghan will no longer be addressed as HRH and will receive no money from the crown and will receive no money from the crown, and will not engage on behalf of the Queen. This means they will stop using their loftiest royal titles, give up state funding and repay at least $3 million in tax payers money used to refurbish their official residence at Windsor Castle.
Donald Trump in a tweet said, the U.S. will not pay for the protection of Harry and Meghan if they choose to return to the United States of America. In his own tweet, Trump tweeted; “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!
Most Americans didn’t find it funny as they feel its literally irrelevant considering the current pandemic affecting the country right now and moreover, Harry and Meghan haven’t ask for special treatment or protection from the president.
