Weeks after United States President Donald Trump had invoked a gaffe parade on social media for “fist-bumping” the British Queen, he referred to Prince Charles as the “Prince of Whales”.
He took Prince Charles’ name on Twitter while referring to the number of world leaders he had met during his recent visit to Europe. The 72-year-old was boasting on Thursday about meeting the members of the British royal family during his visit when he went terribly wrong with the royal titles.
Instead of addressing Prince Charles as the Prince of Wales, he said he was the Prince of “Whales” instead. Trump tweeted: “I meet and talk to ‘foreign governments’ every day. I just met with the Queen of England (UK), the Prince of Whales, the PM of the United Kingdom, the PM of Ireland, the President of France, and the President of Poland.”
