Donald Trump Once Slut-Shamed Kate Middleton And Harassed Princess Diana

President Trump is a notorious misogynist. He insults, harasses, and uses women and has throughout his adult life. His sexism knows no bounds. In advance of the president’s trip to the United Kingdom later this week, it is relevant to take a look at his history of harassment towards women in the Royal family.

The president has a disgusting and disturbing history with Princess Diana, mother to Prince William. After Diana and Prince Charles ended their marriage in 1996, Donald Trump sent bouquet after bouquet after bouquet of flowers to the princess. Trump was married to his second wife Marla Maples at the time.

British journalist and friend and confidant of Princess Diana Selina Scott wrote about Trump’s interest in Diana in The Sunday Times. She said, “Trump clearly saw Diana as the ultimate trophy wife.” Scott went on, “As the roses and orchids piled up at her apartment she became increasingly concerned about what she should do. It had begun to feel as if Trump was stalking her.” Scott recounts a conversation she had with Diana who asked, “What am I going to do? He gives me the creeps.” Scott replied, “just throw them in a bin.” Diana laughed.

After Diana died, Trump said, “I only have one regret in the women department—that I never had the opportunity to court Lady Diana Spencer. I met her on a number of occasions. I couldn’t help but notice how she moved people. She lit up the room with her charm, her presence. She was a genuine princess—a dream lady.”

He later appeared on Howard Stern and agreed that he could have “nailed” her.

Years later, in 2012, Donald Trump chose to slut shame and harass Prince William’s wife Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge. Prince William and Kate were vacationing in southern France when a paparazzo used a super long lens to take grainy photos of Kate sunbathing topless.

Instead of attacking the photographer, Trump took to Twitter to shame the Duchess of Cambridge. He tweeted, “Kate Middleton is great–but she shouldn’t be sunbathing in the nude–only herself to blame.”

He added, “Who wouldn’t take Kate’s picture and make lots of money if she does the nude sunbathing thing. Come on Kate!”

One can imagine the chilly reception Trump might receive when meeting the Queen this week.
