Donald Trump refers to Prince Charles as 'Prince of Whales' in tweet
The President of the Unites States confused a country with a large marine mammal
Donald Trump mistakenly referred to Prince Charles as the 'Prince of Whales' in a tweet sent out on Thursday.
The President of the United States had been attempting to use Charles' title of Prince of Wales in the tweet, but inadvertently used the spelling for a large marine mammal, not the country.
'I meet and talk to “foreign governments” every day,' his tweet read. 'I just met with the Queen of England (UK), the Prince of Whales, the PM of the United Kingdom, the PM of Ireland, the President of France and the President of Poland.
'We talked about “Everything!” ‘Should I immediately call the FBI about these calls and meetings? How ridiculous!'
Thankfully, the tweet was later deleted and replaced by one containing the correct spelling.
But not before lots and lots of people had noticed...

You get the idea.
Before long, 'Prince of Whales' was the number one Twitter trend in the UK.
Trump had met with Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, during a his state visit to London earlier this month.
