Markle was on maternity leave during Trump’s first state visit to the United Kingdom and couldn’t make it, according to Politico. After news broke that she would miss his visit, he was asked by a Sun reporter during a pre-trip Oval Office interview back in June if he knew Markle was critical to her during his campaign, the outlet added.
“I didn’t know that, no. I didn’t know that. No, I hope she’s OK. I did not know that, no,” Trump replied.
“A lot of people moving here, so what can I say? No, I didn’t know that she was nasty,” Trump said when asked if he knew why she wasn’t “very nice” to him, according to the outlet.
When discussing where they want to live, Markle and Harry, 35, reportedly used the words “North American,” according to the Daily Mail. Although “it doesn’t pin them down to one place,” the outlet added.
The newspaper added the move is “by no means an immediate thing.” Markle, however, grew up in Los Angeles and her mother, Doria Ragland, still lives there, the outlet said.
The couple announced Wednesday they would “step back” from royal duties.
