Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are "annoying" to some Americans, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has said.
Mr DeSantis is a high-profile figure in the US, and is likely to run against Donald Trump for the Republican nomination ahead of the 2024 election.
In an interview with Piers Morgan on TalkTV, Mr DeSantis compared the Queen to the younger generation of royals.
He said: "I really respected the Queen. I think she was really elegant. And I think her stoicism was really good."

Mr DeSantis then drew comparisons between the "younger generations" of Royals, saying it was a "little more mixed".
He added: "I mean that's just the reality."
The Florida governor then said that he had no view on the Sussexes.
But when quizzed further by Mr Morgan over whether Harry and Meghan were "annoying", he said: "I think for some they are."
He added: "I mean look, I'm not involved in that... But I think for some Americans they can be."
During another part of the interview, Mr DeSantis said he admired Winston Churchill and added that personal conduct matters.
This was seen as an apparent jibe at Donald Trump. The Republican figures have clashed in recent months as they prepare to battle for the nomination.2023-03-24T07:11:24Z dg43tfdfdgfd
