President Trump said Thursday that Meghan Markle is taking the UK press’ coverage of her “very personally” — but that he “can understand it.”

“I’ve been watching her interviews and I’ve seen it and she has been taking it very personally,” Trump said on Nigel Farage’s radio talk show on London-based station LBC.

The Brexit Party leader had asked Trump whether he felt sorry for the Duchess of Sussex who Farage said is “saying that the press is being really unfair.”

“I guess you have to be a little bit different than that, but she’s take it very, very personally and I can understand it but I don’t know her,” Trump said.

In a documentary that aired in the UK last week, Markle, 38, nearly broke down in tears as she talked about living under the microscope as a new wife, mother and duchess.

The American actress-turned-royal and her husband, Prince Harry, declared war against the British tabloids this month, announcing Meghan is suing the Mail on Sunday claiming it unlawfully published an anguished letter she wrote to her estranged father.

Meanwhile, Harry is pursuing legal action against two British tabloids for allegedly hacking his phone and stealing his voicemails.

Discussing his June visit to the UK, Trump said he enjoyed meeting Harry, 35, and the rest of the royals.

“He’s a great young man. The whole family is terrific, it’s a great family,” Trump said.

Queen Elizabeth II is “an incredible woman,” he added, describing how he sat next to the matriarch during a state banquet at Buckingham Palace.

“She was smiling and having a good time and I was smiling and having a good time. It was really a great evening, and I was told that she enjoyed it and I can tell you I enjoyed it.”

Neither Markle — who was on maternity leave after giving birth to the couple’s son Archie — or Harry made an appearance at the banquet.

Harry did, however, attend a royal luncheon with Trump and first lady Melania Trump during the president’s June visit — though Markle was a no-show.

The visit came amid feud between Markle and the president, with her calling him “misogynistic” and “divisive” and him calling her “nasty.” Trump later clarified he meant the comments she made about him were nasty.

The president is expected to return to the UK in December for a NATO summit.
