William, Harry and Kate Deny Trump What He Wanted Most: a Photo Op

Prince Harry and his brother Prince William have successfully denied Donald Trump the opportunity of appearing in a photo with either of them or their glamorous and popular wives during his state visit to the U.K., which would have been invaluable PR for his 2020 re-election campaign, after the president used the word “nasty” while discussing Harry’s wife, Meghan Markle.

Trump subsequently attempted to deny having said Meghan herself was “nasty,” despite being clearly heard using the word on a recording, suggesting instead that he was describing what she said about moving to Canada if he got elected as a “nasty” comment.

Prince Harry is thought to have been angered by the undiplomatic remarks, made to a reporter from The Sun newspaper, and although he did not pull out of a scheduled private luncheon with Trump and his family on Monday, he had a face like thunder when he was pictured shortly afterward processing into a specially curated exhibition of American artifacts from the Royal Collection.

Trump’s cold-shouldering by William and Kate is arguably a more provocative move on the part of the young royals.

As second in line to the throne, it could be argued that William and his wife do have a responsibility to greet Trump one-on-one in front of the cameras, but so far they have studiously avoided doing so.

At last night’s state banquet, they were both seated several places away from Trump, in what was clearly a deliberate (and successful) attempt to restrict the president’s ability to harness the popularity of the young royals.

17. Well it would create an international incident

The Royals would never do something like that. The uproar would be global! Better to snub him and his spawn a little. This was a major state visit. We’re supposed to be close allies.

Harry restrained himself admirably.

32. It's hardly that.There's plenty of new money in America from people who are better than any Trump

IIRC Kate Middleton's parents are very successful in business, and are not part of the old nobility-structure, and she's just another member of the Royal Family now.

No, the problem with Trump and his spawn is that they are pigs and boors wherever they go, with a smug sense of absolute entitlement that is nauseating. And their supposed fortune is Fake News.

artifacts he could buy and put them in a museum in Calgary back in the 60s and 70s. That is how we got some of our old stuff back. That was well before nations started to demand return of their national artifacts for free.

The British are highly skilled at constructing sophisticated yet deeply-cutting insults. Trump is basically limited to two or three derogatory words.

20. Trump wanted the photo op for his little princesses, too.

Ivanka, Tiffany, jr and Eric have to meet the Royals. This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for trump to force his brats on them when they probably were not invited. Ivanka and Kushner may have had an excuse to be there, but the other three did not.

43. Laughable is that outfit he wore.

Completely wrong. The too-low hanging vest only advertised his girth. The whole ensemble was ill-fitting, too. FFS, Savile Row is right there; the least he could have done was go find a tailor.

That photo of him in that get-up is a gut laugh. You can put lipstick on a pig, it's still a pig.
