This story is a report from BlueStateNation.com.
According to a report from the Sunday Times, several members of the royal family, including Prince William and Prince Charles, “simply refused” to give Donald Trump and his wife Melania the time of day during their stop-over in London.
The report states that the family left the undesirable duty of hosting the disgusting First Couple to Queen Elizabeth II who handled her obligation with her usual grace and dignity.
The paper says that “well-placed sources” at Buckingham Palace, said that the two princes’ decision to not meet Trump “was a snub” with one source noting that they “simply refused to attend.”
The times quoted a Whitehall official who explained that Trump’s meeting with the queen was “kept to a bare minimum,” and that other Royal Family members “were not as enthusiastic as they were when Obama came over.”
Reaction from Twitter was overwhelmingly supportive of the Royal family’s decision.
The queen is lovely, and did what she had to. But thank you, William and Charles.

This is the guy who on Howard Stern said he could have "nailed" Princess Diana and that was after she had died — so no they aren't up for meeting Putin's BFF who has poisoned British citizens

One of the many reasons why the two princes may have decided not to meet Trump could be personal. It was reported a few years ago that Trump once aggressively pursued their mother Princess Diana in what could best be described as stalker-like behavior which reportedly gave the princess the “creeps.”
In an interview with Howard Stern, when asked if he could have “nailed” Princess Diana, Trump replied, “I Think I could have,” and had the audacity to suggest that he would have only given her the privilege of sleeping with him had she agreed to take an HIV test beforehand.
In 2000, Trump changed his tune and said during another Howard Stern appearance that he would have had sex with the princess “without even hesitation.”
Other reports say that Trump saw Diana as “the ultimate “trophy wife.”
“I tell you what,” Trump said, “I think she’s magnificent. Lady Di was truly a woman with great beauty. I’ve seen her a couple of times. She was really beautiful, and people didn’t realize that beautiful. She was supermodel beautiful. She had the height, she had the beauty, she had the skin, the whole thing.”
Trump’s disgusting comments about there mother would have been reason enough not to meet with America’s resident Commander-in-Scumbag. However, I’m sure it may have had more to do with Trump’s standing as a political pariah around the globe.
Good job Prince William and Prince Charles, your mother would be beaming with pride.
