The state visit of US President Donald Trump to the United Kingdom has been surrounded by a lot of controversies.

After Trump made some disrespectful remarks towards the royal family -- like Princess Diana and Meghan Markle -- there was some speculation that he might not be given a very warm welcome in his visit to the country.

 Moreover, so far, it appears that those guesses have been correct. Even though a special banquet was held to celebrate the arrival of Trump to the country, one person was notably absent from the event.

Markle chose to skip the banquet, and many have been speculating that the recent feud between her and Trump is likely the main reason. Additionally, the Duchess of Sussex is on maternity leave with her 3-week-old son.

The whole incident started a recently when comments that Trump had made in regard to Markle referring to her by some unpleasant terms.

In an interview published in The Sun, Trump said this: "I didn't know that. What can I say? I didn't know that she was nasty."

 Trump was bashing Markle, who said in an interview on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore back in 2016: "I'm voting for Hillary Clinton, not because she is a woman, but because Trump has made it easy to see that you don't really want that kind of world that he's painting."

And while Trump insisted that he has no recollection of saying anything of the sort, that only served to draw even more criticism and even mockery from some sides.

So far, it looks like Trump has still managed to have a relatively good time in the UK, despite all the drama surrounding his visit because First Lady Melania Trump, Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, and Prince Harry attended the event on Monday at Buckingham Palace.

The president has made it clear in the past that he does not easily get fazed by developments like these, and he is had to face even worse situations in the past, which he has dealt with successfully.

At the moment, it looks like Trump is only focused on his visit.

Do you think Trump did something wrong by calling Markle nasty, yes or no?
