Royal news: Donald Trump Princess Diana sex claim to make state visit awkward (Image: GETTY)
To make matters worse the sick sex remark was made in the same year Diana, Princess of Wales died. Princes William and Harry are said to take a very dim view of those who insult or belittle their late mother, who tragically passed away after a Paris car crash in 1997. Trump is therefore expected to receive a frosty reception from the royal brothers when they meet him next month.
Trump was being interviewed in 1997 shortly after the People’s Princess died in events that shook the world.
In an astounding boast, Trump said Diana had been attracted to him.
The then property mogul astonishingly claimed he could have “nailed” her – despite friends of the Princess revealing she had felt the tycoon was “stalking her”.
Trump, then not involved in politics, was asked by interviewer Howard Stern: “Why do people think it’s egotistical of you to say you could’ve gotten Lady Di?
“You could’ve gotten her, right? You could’ve nailed her.”
