After the royal welcome, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, will reportedly join Trump for a private lunch with other royals, including Prince William and Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton. Markle, who recently gave birth, will not attend. 

There are reportedly a number of other events scheduled on Trump’s itinerary that will have members of the royal family in attendance, absent Markle.

The report comes several weeks after Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their baby boy, Archie Harrison.

Royal commentator Victoria Arbiter told Inside Edition that Markle will still be on maternity leave during the visit.

"Meghan is not snubbing Donald Trump, it is simply for one very good reason: she is on maternity leave," Arbiter said. "When the Trumps arrive in London, Archie is going to be just shy of his one-month birthday."

Markle, an American-born actress, has criticized Trump in the past, calling the president “misogynistic” and “divisive" in 2016.
