Presideny Donald Trump touched down in Great Britain this week for a three-day, official state visit.
But he wasn’t exactly given a hero’s greeting upon his arrival.
At least not by one very prominent British citizen.
According to The Sun, Prince Harry attended a private lunch with the President and First Lady on Monday, but he didn’t speak very much to the Commander-in-Chief.
This same group was then taken on a tour of Queen Elizabeth’s private art collection, but Harry chose to hang back as much as possible at this point.
An insider says he made a point NOT to be photographed anywhere near the President.
This British publication explains that Harry walked in with the President’s daughter, Ivanka, during this showing — but then left her to talk to the Lord Chamberlain while the Queen showed the Trumps around the Palace.
"Harry was the third most senior royal in the room after the Queen and his father, but didn’t seem to take any part in his royal duties," an onlooker tells The Sun.
Royal commentator Ingrid Seward, meanwhile, offered a similar account:
“Harry did look grumpy and as if he didn’t want to be there," she said, adding
"He appears to be behaving in a rather immature way and letting his personal animosity take over from his natural good manners.
"Whatever his personal feelings, it’s his duty to support the Queen regardless and take a tip from his grandmother who has never allowed her personal feelings to interfere with her duty.
"It’s bad manners and rude."
One might say, of course, that President Trump has exhibited nothing himself except for bad, very rude manners — so why should he deserve anything but the same in return?
Just a few days ago, upon being told of negative comments Meghan Markle made about him three years ago, Trump slammed the Duchess as nasty.
He added at the time, speaking in general of Markle as a member of The Royal Family:
“I think it’s nice, and I’m sure she’ll do excellently. She’ll be very good.”
However, the damage had already been done.
Thankfully for Markle, though, she never had to pretend to make nice to the President.
She remains on maternity leave and is not attending any official events at the moment.
As soon as Harry’s official duties were over yesterday, The Sun reports, "he dashed off to his exclusive Chelsea gym KX, where he spent 90 minutes working out."
He probably had quite a bit of stress to get out after having to hold in his contempt for the American President for so long.
Harry then chose not take part in the official state banquet at the Palace last night, despite it being attended by Charles, Camilla, William and Kate.
Can anyone blame the guy?!?
