Princess Diana said Trump gave her 'the creeps' while he boasted he could have ‘nailed her'
Princess Diana and former President Donald Trump did not have similar opinions about each other after they met in New York in 1995. The world was aware of the troubles brewing in the marriage of Diana and Prince Charles, and then real-estate mogul Trump saw it as an opportunity to swoop in and make Diana his 'ultimate trophy wife.'
The People's Princess told British broadcaster Selina Scott that Trump 'gives her the creeps' after she met the New York property developer during her official visit to the Big Apple. To woo Diana, Trump even sent her a bouquet of roses and orchids to Kensington Palace. The flowers, which were meant to arrive on the occasion of Diana's 36th birthday, instead arrived a couple of days later. "He bombarded Diana at Kensington Palace with massive bouquets of flowers, each worth hundreds of pounds," after she and Prince Charles divorced in 1996, Scott wrote in the Sunday Times. "Trump clearly saw Diana as the ultimate trophy wife."

Trump wanted to 'nail' Diana
This was after Trump claimed that he could have "nailed her" after he met with Princess Diana. Due to her less-than-high opinion of Trump, Diana did not want the flowers in her home. Scott said Diana confided in her over dinner about her increasing concerned about what to do with the flowers. Scott said Diana asked her: "'What am I going to do? He gives me the creeps." To this, Scott replied "Just throw them in the bin," adding, "Diana laughed."
According to Daily Mail, Princess Diana had an inspired idea as to where she could send the flowers sent to her by Trump. She despatched them to the Knightsbridge clinic where she went for sessions of colonic irrigation. According to royal expert and Diana's close confidant, Richard Kay, she thought that the location was 'poetic'. "From one bum to another," she told Kay privately.
Trump's biggest regret was Diana died before they could date
Scott, who did not have a cordial relationship with Trump, claimed in the newspaper article that when Diana died in a car crash in Paris in 1997, "Trump told friends his biggest regret was that they hadn't dated." She added: "He said that he always thought he had a chance of romance and would have had a 'shot' with her." Trump's spokesman told the Sunday Times in 2015: "(Trump and Diana) had a great relationship, liked each other a lot, but nothing ever came of it."
Princess Diana's life-size statue will be unveiled on Thursday, July 1 — an event that will mark the 60th birth anniversary of the late royal, and will be spearheaded by her feuding sons, princes William and Harry. It will be a relatively private affair, with the press kept to a minimum. Only one photographer and one tv camera are allowed in the event, which has already generated global attention.
