Indeed, he might be known as the Prince of Wales in the UK, but it seems like the US leader may have got the wrong end of the stick over Charle’s official title while he was on this side of the pond for a state visit earlier this month... “I meet and talk to ‘foreign governments’ every day,” Trump tweeted. “I just met with the Queen of England (U.K.), the Prince of Whales, the P.M. of the United Kingdom, the P.M.
