Donald Trump stalked Princess Diana after her marriage to Prince Charles ended to such a degree that Princess Diana “became increasingly concerned about what she should do” about the tons of roses and orchids that Trump reportedly had sent to Diana’s residency.
Reports that Donald Trump stalked Princess Diana in order to gain her as “his trophy wife” were published by London’s The Sunday Times on August 16. “He bombarded Diana at Kensington Palace with massive bouquets of flowers, each worth hundreds of pounds,” Scott wrote in the Sunday Times. “As the roses and orchids piled up at her apartment she became increasingly concerned about what she should do. It had begun to feel as if Trump was stalking her.”
“Trump clearly saw Diana as the ultimate trophy wife,” wrote Selina Scott.
Scott shared that Princess Diana was so unsettled about Donald Trump’s overwhelming gifts that she confided in her over dinner and asked her for advice: “What am I going to do?’” Diana asked Scott. “He gives me the creeps.”
When Scott told Diana to “just throw them in the bin,” Diana reportedly laughed, but she was still worried on how to deal with those massive bouquets of flowers.
U.S. presidential hopeful Donald Trump, 69, and British broadcaster Selina Scott, 64, have a history that dates back to 1994 when Scott was sent to America to interview Trump. After interviewing Trump for the first time, Scott’s technical team thought that there had been a camera defect and when redoing the interview a second time, Trump’s answers were so contradictory that everyone was stunned, and Scott ended up making a critical documentary about Trump’s rise to power:
“When we viewed (the interviews) we realised that they were gold dust. He [Trump] had contradicted himself between one interview and the other. This meant we could splice the two against each other, revealing that Trump’s relationship with the facts was a distant one.”
Apparently, Donald Trump’s unique relationship with reality also applied to Princess Diana:
“A spokesman for Mr Trump insisted his friendship with the Princess was nothing more than mutual affection. ‘They had a great relationship, liked each other a lot, but nothing ever came of it,’ the spokesman said even though Trump believed ‘he always thought he had a chance of romance’.”
After Princess Diana’s tragic death in 1997, Donald Trump told friends that his biggest regret was that “he hadn’t dated” Prince Charles’ former wife. In his 1997 book “The Art of the Comeback,” Trump made his feelings about Diana quite clear:
“I only have one regret in the women department — that I never had the opportunity to court Lady Diana Spencer. I met her on a number of occasions. I couldn’t help but notice how she moved people. She lit up the room with her charm, her presence. She was a genuine princess — a dream lady.”
