Prince Charles and Prince William 'snubbed' Trump during his Queen visit

Britain’s princes were not interested in charming President Trump, according to a report.

Prince Charles and Prince William could have attended the President’s meeting with Queen Elizabeth II on Friday, but “snubbed” the American in favor of other engagements, according to The Times of London.

“They simply refused to attend. It’s a very, very unusual thing for the Queen to be there on her own. Usually she is accompanied by somebody. Prince Charles has been substituting for Philip a lot recently,” a source told the newspaper.

Charles had a meeting with his company and attended a police event, while William played in a charity polo match.

Trump met briefly with the reigning monarch at Windsor Castle and made a mild etiquette error by turning his back to the Queen.

He later told British television personality Piers Morgan that the longtime world leader had discussed the “very complex problem” of the U.K.’s departure from the European Union.

It was not clear whether the decision to miss out by the Prince of Wales was impacted by a blubbering balloon of Trump’s likeness and 100,000 people taking the streets of central London in opposition to the President’s visit.

Trump said as he was leaving the NATO summit in Brussels that “I think they like me there” in the U.K., though a YouGov poll found that only 17% have a favorable view as opposed to 77% unfavorable.
