Trump says he ‘wouldn’t protect’ Prince Harry if he’s reelected

Former President Trump says he “wouldn’t protect” Prince Harry if he wins the White House in November.

“He betrayed the queen. That’s unforgivable,” Trump told the U.K.’s Daily Express in an interview over the weekend.

Amid an ongoing lawsuit filed by the conservative think tank the Heritage Foundation against the Department of Homeland Security about whether the department followed relative rules in granting the 39-year-old British royal his visa, Trump accused the Biden administration of “protecting Harry.”

“I wouldn’t protect him,” Trump said.

“He would be on his own if it was down to me,” the 45th president added.

Harry and his wife, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, stepped down as full-time working members of Britain’s royal family in 2020 and moved to California.

Last year, Harry released a tell-all book about his life as a member of the royal family, titled “Spare.” The memoir detailed his struggles with grief following the 1997 death of his mother, Princess Diana, his criticism of the British press and his strained relationship with his family.

Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, died in 2022 at 96.

In his comments to the Daily Express, Trump claimed the royal family has been “too gracious” to Harry after “what he has done.”

In an interview earlier this month, Harry told ABC News that he’s considered becoming a U.S. citizen.

“American citizenship is something that’s crossed my mind, but certainly not something that’s a high priority for me right now,” Harry said.
