Prince Harry Has Shared His Opinions About President Trump

Everyone's favourite royal has revealed his opinions on President Trump and, let's just say, he's not a massive fan.

Prince Harry has apparently been quite open and vocal about his dislike of The Donald since he began his election campaign all the way back in 2015, according to a source close to the royal.

Apparently the source told US Weekly: "Harry thinks the president is a serious threat to human rights."

The source added that his big brother William has also 'expressed concern'. All of which, if true, could make things nice and awkward when Trump meets the royal family during his upcoming state visit.

What's the problem?

If William did have his 'concerns' about the president, I suppose it could stem from the tweets Trump posted back in 2012 about Duchess Kate after she was snapped sunbathing topless by a French photographer.

As well as this, it's recently been revealed that Harry's girlfriend, Suits actress, Meghan Markle has called Trump a 'misogynist' when she appeared on the Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, before adding that she would be 'staying in Canada' if he was elected.

She said: "Yes of course Trump is divisive. Think about just female voters alone. I think it was in 2012, the Republican Party lost the female vote by 12 points. That's a huge number and with as misogynistic as Trump is and so vocal about it, that's a huge chunk of it."

People have also speculated that his dad Prince Charles has had a sly dig at the president.

Speaking in front of 800 people at the annual World Jewish Relief charity dinner Prince Charles said: "The work of World Jewish Relief allows us to rally together to do what we can to support people practically, emotionally and spiritually, particularly at a time when the horrific lessons of the last war seem to be in increasing danger of being forgotten."

The charity is currently working with those fleeing Syria and helping them to make safe passage to Turkey, the UK and Greece.

And, although he didn't mention the US specifically, people were quick to draw attention to the timing of his speech, coming just days after Trump signed his executive order banning travellers from a number of countries, including Syria, from entering the US.

Prince Charles and the younger royals are also well-known for being environmentalist and Trump is quite well-known for saying that climate change is a 'hoax', so it seems unlikely the Windsors and President Trump will become best pals.

Why can't they be friends?

Of course, they may find common ground if conversation turns to the military.

The Royal family have a long-standing military history with Prince Harry spending 10 years in the British army and serving in Helmand, Afghanistan. His brother William trained with both the British Air and Royal Air Force, eventually being promoted to Flight Lieutenant.

Prince Harry also launched the Invictus Games and is patron of Walking With The Wounded.

Trump has famously spoken out in favour of the military, saying that under Obama the US military was 'weakened' as well as promising to increase military spending.

During his election campaign he said that he would boost military spending by $500 billion (£399106005000) to an eye-watering $1 trillion (£798,212,010,000).

Besides, even if they don't get along, the royals being British and having to be apolitical means it will probably all be frightfully polite.
