Former U.S. President Donald Trump recalled the time when Queen Elizabeth and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall apparently competed with each other for his attention.

According to Indy100, around the time of his visit to the UK in 2019, there were many anti-Trump protests held. But it seems like he enjoyed the 96-year-old Queen and Camilla's company at a royal banquet.

Speaking with Piers Morgan, Trump said that he was in the company of Camilla and the Queen during an event at Buckingham Palace in June 2019. He attended it with his wife, Melania, and his older children, reported Daily Mail.

He said that at the time, Camilla was on his right while the Queen was on his left. He told the Queen, "I really have to talk to Camilla for a little while too." Trump found Camilla funny and smart. He said that "she was quick, she was great."

He also said that he liked Camilla's husband Prince Charles too. Trump was asked if he thinks Charles and Camilla will make a good King and Queen in the future. He replied saying that he hopes so. He thinks "it's going to be tricky because they are truly replacing a legend when you talk about this woman (the Queen)."

He also shared how him sitting next to the British monarch made her happy. He said that the two talked the whole night, and somebody said, "We've never seen her smile so much. We had a great time." Trump noted that the Queen "was laughing and smiling." He added that people told him they had "never seen her have such a good time at a state dinner."

During the interview, Trump also criticized Prince Harry's "terrible" choice to miss his grandfather Prince Philip's memorial service last month. He said that it was the "worst" decision Harry had made. He slammed the prince for being "so disrespectful" and an "embarrassment." He called on the monarch to strip the Duke and his wife Meghan Markle of all their royal titles, and said that the Queen should ban Harry from even visiting her in Britain.

Harry was noticeably absent from his grandfather's memorial service at Westminster Abbey. It happened amid rows between the Duke and the Home Office over personal protection during visits from his home in America.
