Meghan Markle Refuses to Meet Donald Trump During Royal Visit!

by at .

Meghan Markle can probably think of a million other things she would rather do than to meet Donald Trump. 

I'm sure she is under a lot of pressure as it is -- you know, from new motherhood -- she doesn't need to add to her stress levels by conversing with what we call our President of the United States. 

She's a smart girl, so yeah she's passing hard on the offer to meet Donald when he arrives at Buckingham Palace come June.

Even though the Royals don't actually hold any political power in the UK -- they still, of course, get to meet and be respected by other nation heads. 

Queen Elizabeth will be hosting Trump and his wife Melania when they come for their three-day trip next week where all members of the royal family have been invited.

And yes everyone else, minus Meghan, is on board for the affair. (Even Prince Harry!) 

Markle and Her Man

According to CBS News, Harry will have a private lunch with Donald and discuss, you know, important people things, while Prince William and Kate Middleton will be meeting with him the second day for tea.

Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla will also be present at the welcoming ceremony for Trump. 

And during all of these engagements, the American-born actress will likely be chilling at Frogmore cottage with weeks-old son Archie! 

Baby Sussex

Meghan has yet to make a statement about why she is skipping the important event, but we can assume she isn't too upset because she has made it very clear in the past that she is not a Trump supporter. 

The Duchess of Sussex once called Donald "divisive" and "misogynistic" and was a major supporter of Hilary Clinton during the 2016 election. 

During a 2016 interview on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, Markle offered her thoughts and feelings on the then-republican candidate. 

Meghan Markle Unhappy

"It's really the moment I go; we film Suits in Toronto and I might just stay in Canada," she said. 

"Yes, of course, Trump is divisive, think about female voters alone, right?

"I think it was in 2012 the Republican Party lost the female vote by 12 points; that is a huge number and with as misogynistic as Trump is, and so vocal about it, that is a huge chunk of it."

She also went on to explain why she was behind Clinton:

"You're not just voting for a woman if it's Hillary because she's a woman, but certainly because Trump has made it easy to see that you don't really want that kind of world he's painting."

It seems as though the arrival of baby Archie couldn't have come at a better time. 

Royal commentator Victoria Arbiter told Inside Edition that Markle will still technically be on maternity leave during the visit. 

With Archie

"Meghan is not snubbing Donald Trump, it is simply for one very good reason: she is on maternity leave," Arbiter said. 

"When the Trumps arrive in London, Archie is going to be just shy of his one-month birthday."

Right... excellent planning, royal fam!
