Meghan Markle Sitting This One Out When the U.S. President arrives in the U.K. next week for his official visit, one U.S. born citizen won’t be there to give him a warm welcome. Duchess of Sussex and former “Suits” actress Meghan Markle is taking a pass on the sit down with Trump and Melania. Some speculate Markle won’t be joining husband Prince Harry since she is still on maternity leave having given birth to baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor just four weeks ago. Others speculate Markle is missing all Trump related events given her public criticisms and apparent dislike of the president. Markle called Trump “misogynistic” and “divisive” in an interview on Comedy Central’s “The Night Show with Larry Wilmore” back in 2016. Markle added to comments on then candidate Trump saying, “…Trump has made it easy to see that you don’t really want that kind of world that he’s painting.” It’s not just Americans giving Trump the cold shoulder on his visit Monday. Trump has been banned from addressing Parliament and protesters will be out in force for several planned demonstrations.
