President Donald Trump recently concluded his official state visit to the United Kingdom — timed to coincide with the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the World War II D-Day invasion — that, aside from predictably negative American media coverage, went off smoothly, marked by moments of grandeur and solemnity.

There was one noticeable problem with the visit, however, in the view of generally liberal British news commentator Piers Morgan — the conspicuous absence during the three-day event of Meghan Markle, the American actress-turned-British-royalty by virtue of her marriage to Prince Harry.

In a column for the U.K. Daily Mail, Morgan absolutely excoriated the duchess of Sussex for allowing her openly declared dislike of Trump to apparently override her responsibilities as a member of the royal family, specifically, being in attendance at important functions such as hosting an official state visit, particularly one involving the elected leader of Markle’s home country.

“She’s the only American in the British royal family, and the leader of HER country was here in her adopted country as a guest of Her Majesty the Queen,” Morgan wrote of Markle.

“Yet as virtually every other senior royal, including her husband Prince Harry, was seen on parade to welcome President Trump, there was no sign at all of the Duchess of Sussex.”

Morgan noted that rather than attend any of the banquets and dinners, participate in any of the photo opportunities, or even show her respect for the D-Day ceremonies, Markle instead “went M.I.A.” and hid herself away in her “lavish,” British taxpayer-supported residence for the duration of Trump’s time in the U.K.

“Officially, the line trotted out to the media was that she was taking care of her baby Archie, who arrived a month ago,” Morgan wrote. “But then, the moment Trump had gone, Meghan suddenly popped up at the Trooping of the Colour, in an open-top carriage, looking in radiant good health and with a permanently beaming grin.

“So call me suspicious, but I don’t think her absence from Trump’s visit had anything to do with her baby, and everything to do with her dislike of her President,” he added. “And that, I’m afraid, is unacceptable. It’s not part of the deal.”

Morgan noted that when non-royals like Markle marry into the royal family, there are certain basic expectations that come along with the sudden fame and luxury and privilege and wealth into which they’ve been vaulted overnight.

“Top of the list of behavioral requirements is that they rock up for big royal events, looking a million dollars, smiling at all and sundry, and flashing a regular royal wave at their adoring fans,” Morgan wrote. “And royal events don’t get a lot bigger than a state visit by the President of the United States.”

He noted that Trump’s visit was only the third official state visit honor extended to a U.S. president — the other two being former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama — and pointed out that this visit was arguably even more important than the others, given the gravity of the historical commemoration of the incredible joint sacrifices made by American and British troops on the beaches and in the hedgerows of Normandy in 1944.

“So, I’m sorry, but bunking off at home is simply not an option for ANY senior member of the Royal Family. Yet that’s what Meghan did,” he wrote. “And we all know why she did it — she hates Trump with a passion, and views him, as she once said on TV, as a ‘divisive misogynist.’”

Morgan speculated that Markle had gone out of her way to avoid being seen or photographed near Trump or the “brand-ruinous” appearance of her not being sufficiently outraged or moved to partisan violence by his presence — which, he noted, is her personal prerogative.

“But what is NOT her prerogative is to use that personal dislike of him to snub the state visit,” he wrote. “By doing so, she was not just giving the metaphorical bird to Trump, as she would have most definitely wanted to do, she was giving it to his host the Queen, her country who he is representing and the country whom she now represents.

“Even worse, she was also giving it to all those who fought for our freedom and democracy on D-Day, and especially those who lost their lives,” Morgan added.

Morgan proceeded to point out how the queen has hosted all sorts of unsavory leaders and dubious dictators over the years, and despite her likely “private revulsion” at hosting such individuals, she nevertheless did her job as graciously as possible, as that is “part of the deal” of being a British royal.

“As the only American among the royals, Meghan Markle should have been there to greet the President and his family on behalf of her fellow Americans. By staying at home, then turning up all bright and cheerful the moment Trump left, she displayed a woefully selfish disregard for royal duty,” he concluded.

    Thank you, Piers, and as an American…I want to just say, THANK YOU.

      I doubt this will be the last time she shows her lack of respect for the royal family. I have a feeling that her marriage will follow the ways of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.

    Didn’t expect anything different from an narcissistic person that thinks it was all about her. My family served in the army that helped insure that the British won the war. Karma is a bitch girl!!!

      Half snow flake. The Brits will rue the day they accepted her into the royal family.

    Marrying into the Royal family does not immediately endow one with manners and class as was confirmed by the petulant snowflake, Megan Markle. Thank you Prince Harry for being a gentleman and helping host President Trump.

    She was ‘nothing’ but a two bit bitch whore before. She tries so hard to emulate and outshine Kate Middleton and ending with mud on her face. There’s a big different between a natural and a want-to-be princess. As the song goes: You can take the girl out of the country, you can’t take the country out of the girl. Marrying into Royal family does not change THE FACT for what she was, what she is and what she will always be: A two bit bitch whore.

    Name ONE liberal who has good manners. She is just another TDS afflicted crazo. Who names their kid Archie? I bet the kid will be gender confused!

    Much respect to Piers Morgan. He said it all so very well. As for Megan Markle, I had determined from the start to give her a good chance before making a determination about her. Well, I did and she failed miserably so now I can feel disgust with impunity. What a horrible example of a US citizen she has proven herself to be.

    1000 years of British Royal genetic selection shot to hell. And we’re seeing just the first example of what comes with it.

    Thank you Piers Morgan. You can not buy class. That is something a person is born with. Money has nothing to do with it. And as the whole world saw, Meghan Markle was not born with class. Kate had it from the beginning. So don’t look for Meghan to ever show any. She might wear pretty clothes, she might wave at the crowd, but when push comes to shove. Forget the class.

      Exactly right. Wearing royal clothing doesn t make you royal. You can buy a title with money or like in this case ,body credit but she will always be low class, no surprise there. Grace Kelly was a star that learned to be royal but this two bit harlot will never be up to par.

    Meghan’s not a good person, she’s disliked by her own household staff and her own relatives. With the exception of her mother, she has disowned both her relatives from her mother and father’s side, as claimed by them. I’ve read a lot about her and they were mostly unflattering stories. She gets rid of people that are no longer of use to her, a social climber that she even arranged someone to introduce her to Prince Harry, herself 3 yrs older and a divorcee. Her father could not attend her wedding because he didn’t have the money to pay for his airfare, buy a suit etc. If she really wanted him to attend her wedding, she would have given him the money weeks before the wedding. Now she shows her ill-breeding and trashy background by snubbing our President and First Lady.

    What else did you expect from the Duchess of Watermelon.
    She came between two beloved brothers.
    Got him banished to Africa, Of all hell holes.
    She’s just another typical NIGGER!.
    I remember a time when women chose not to be with upper class man because they knew they would be responsible for destroying that man’s life. Today, females are using men as a steppingstone and men are expendable for their selfish purposes. It is a temporary gain for her but it is total destruction for him.
    Feminazi racist Gold digging whore.
    WHAT THE FUCK WAS HE THINKING!?!?
    If it flies, floats or fucks… Rent it, Stupid!

    She is still a nobody and doesn’t deserve to be anywhere near President Trump.

    I told my son before they got married, she was going to be trouble. She’s going to try to change the Royal ways, starting with Prince Harry. The Queen has trouble on her hands. She’s one of those feminist that wants the man to be the tail, not the head

    I’m supposed to be surprised? Why? She’s total TRASH and I wonder wtf got into Harry’s mind marrying that POS. Was it for the shock value?
