DONALD Trump has accused Meghan Markle of "being disrespectful" to the late Queen.

The former president, 76, also expressed his "surprise" that Prince Harry was invited to the coronation while his wife will stay at home.

Mr Trump did not specify what Meghan had done to disrespect the late monarch, but praised The Queen for "decades without controversy".

Speaking to GB News' Nigel Farage yesterday, Trump said: "I think she [Meghan] has been very disrespectful to the Queen.

"How can you be so disrespectful to the Queen?

"She was incredible, for decades and decades she never made a mistake.

"I cannot think of a mistake she made, she was never controversial."

Speaking from his Scottish golf course Turnberry, in Ayrshire, Trump added: "She went through years and decades without controversy.

The former POTUS seconded Mr Farage's comment the late Queen was "the most popular human being in the world".

Despite Trump's comments, Meghan, 41, told Oprah Winfrey in her bombshell 2021 interview The Queen "was always wonderful" to her.

In the chat, The Duchess of Sussex also stressed how she "loved" being in The Queen's company.

Prince Harry, 38, will attend his father's big day alone on Saturday, while his wife and two kids stay in California.

The coronation takes place on May 6 – the same day as their son Archie's fourth birthday.

Close pal Omid Scobie said this was a factor in the couple's decision to be apart.

He explained: "Expect it to be a fairly quick trip to the UK for Prince Harry, who will only be attending the coronation ceremony at Westminster Abbey."

The Sun has approached The Duke and Duchess of Sussex for comment.

In a wide ranging interview, Trump also unloaded a volley of shots at his "disrespectful" successor Joe Biden who he accused of "sleeping" through Charles' coronation.

The US President will not attend Saturday's crowning, with First Lady Jill attending on his behalf.

Trump fumed: "That man is incompetent, and it's a shame. He can't even come to your coronation as a country, and your coronation is a big event.
