Prince William and King Charles erupted into ‘torrents of obscenity’ in response to Donald Trump‘s comments on Kate Middleton’s topless photo incident in 2012, as per Christopher Andersen’s new book.

The business entrepreneur responded on Twitter after the French magazine Closer released photos of the former Duchess of Cambridge sunbathing topless in Provence, France.

“Who wouldn’t take Kate’s picture and make lots of money if she does the nude sunbathing thing? Come on Kate! Kate Middleton is great–but she shouldn’t be sunbathing in the nude–only herself to blame.” Trump tweeted.

Excerpts from Christopher Andersen’s new biography The King: The Life of Charles III showed that Charles, Prince William, and Prince Harry used “torrents of profanity” in response to the post.

According to Andersen, Trump’s criticism of Middleton led to what one butler at Clarence House called “torrents of profanity” from both Prince Charles and his sons.

Charles was ‘disappointed,’ according to the advance copy, when Trump referred to him as the ‘Prince of Wales,’ spelled after the sea animal rather than the nation.

Trump’s assertion that he “could have nailed” Princess Diana if he had wanted to, according to Andersen, also “didn’t help.”

The Royal Family allegedly tried to “discourage” Trump from visiting the UK in 2017, according to Andersen’s book.

According to Andersen, Charles, William, and Harry ‘burned up the phone lines between Clarence House and Kensington Palace, with all three princes agreeing to work behind the scenes to discourage Trump’s visit.’

On Fox and Friends at the time, Trump reacted on the nude images, saying, ‘While we’re all fans of Kate, can you imagine why she would ever be out in the nude?

‘Why would she be standing in the nude in a swimming pool or wherever she was. She’s Kate. It’s terrible what they did, it’s terrible to take pictures, but boy, how can you do a thing so stupid?’

The media’s choice to publish the topless images, according to a statement from St James’s Palace, was “grotesque.”

The incident is painful to the Duke and Duchess all the more because it is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of [Princess Diana].

Kate Middleton and William received £120,000 in punitive damages in 2017.

The ex-Duke of Cambridge reportedly called the publication of these images “traumatic” and said: “The covert manner in which these photographs were acquired was extremely disturbing to us as it violated our privacy.”

“We figured we could enjoy our privacy by travelling to France for a few days and staying in a private villa owned by a member of my family,” he added.

In accordance with French privacy rules, two executives were each fined £40,000, the highest amount that may be imposed.

They also had to pay the Duchess and the Duke a total of £44,000, according to The Express, along with the two photographers.
