King Charles and William, Prince of Wales, erupted in a furious tirade when Donald Trump mocked Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales, for appearing in topless photos during a beach trip in 2012.
This is one of the passages that will be revealed in the next Biography by Christopher Andersen, ‘The King: The Life of Charles III‘, according to an editorial advance published by the Daily Mail.
The anecdote points out that Trump’s comments also resulted in “torrents of profanity” from Carlos and William, as well as the prince harry.
It is that the now former president of the United States tweeted at that time that Middleton was to blame for having been captured by photographers half naked in Provence, France, in 2012.
“Kate Middleton It’s great, but she shouldn’t be sunbathing naked, it’s her own fault… who wouldn’t?” Trump said.
At the time St. James’ Palace issued a statement calling the publication of the photos in a French magazine a “grotesque” invasion of privacy and saying: “Their Royal Highnesses had every expectation of privacy in the remote house. It is unthinkable that someone should take such photographs, let alone publish them,” he added.
According to reports, the book of Christopher Anderson adds that the king charles was “disappointed” when Trump referred to him as the “prince of whales”and reviled the American when he stated that he could have slept with the Princess Diana if I had wanted.
The book also says the royal family tried to “discourage” a planned Trump visit to the UK in 2017, and Charles, William and Harry tried to stop him.
According to the biographer, “Charles, William and Harry ‘burned’ the telephone lines between Clarence House and Kensington Palace and the three Princes agreed to work behind the scenes to discourage the visit of donald trump.
“Throughout 2017 and into 2018, Britons seemed almost as fascinated by Trump’s storm of tweets as their American cousins. The royal family was no exception. At every opportunity, including Prince Harry’s wedding reception, Charles pulled the wealthy and influential American friends of his aside and gently urged them to get information.” (rts)
