Ron DeSantis said he admired the Queen’s “stoicism” but added that he is a “little mixed” when it comes to younger royals.
Royals: Piers Morgan on Harry and Meghan to Ben Shapiro
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.”
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.
Princess Kate’s strict royal ‘mantra’ to keep iconic sapphire engagement ring ‘safe’
The Princess of Wales’s iconic ring has a fascinating history that dates back centuries – but its day-to-day “routine” is something the royals remain “tight-lipped” on.
It’s been over a decade since Kate, Princess of Wales, and Prince William’s engagement, but the dazzling 12-carat oval sapphire engagement ring that marked the occasion remains a phenomenon. The iconic ring once belonged to William’s late mother Diana, Princess of Wales, which then-Prince Charles used to propose in the Eighties. It dates back to the 19th century, when Prince Albert had a sapphire-and-diamond brooch created for his wife, Queen Victoria. It has been passed down through royal generations ever since. However, while the history of the piece is well-known, its current usage remains quite private, with the royals staying “tight-lipped about the day-to-day locations and routines regarding their jewellery,” according to an expert.
