Prince Harry attended a private lunch hosted by the queen for the Trumps at Buckingham Palace today.
Meghan Markle didn’t attend, as she is on maternity leave.
The meeting comes days after the president called Meghan “nasty” when he heard she called him “divisive” and “misogynistic” in a 2016 interview. Prince Harry wasn’t present when the queen, Prince Charles, and Duchess Camilla welcomed the Trumps to Buckingham Palace today, but he did join in on a private luncheon with the president soon after. CNN reported two weeks ago that the Duke of Sussex would join in on the lunch, which took place at the palace’s Blue Drawing Room.
Given the private nature of the meeting, no photos or details from the event were released.
Afterwards, the queen and the royal party gave their guests a tour of the Royal Collection.
Harry was seen walking in with Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner but he apparently “hung back,” according to royal correspondent Emily Andrews.
Prince Andrew, Prince Charles, and Duchess Camilla were also there.

Prince Harry, who was also at the private lunch, noticeably hung back. He walked in with Ivanka (was he supposed to show her round the exhibition?? or maybe they sat next to each other at lunch) and then drifted off to talk to the Lord Chamberlain (the Earl Peel). pic.twitter.com/NLyfNvkZx6
