Happily digging through the news this morning, your mole chanced upon some shocking information buried in a Buzzfeed story on the United States' heir apparent, Donald Trump.

Across multiple appearances on The Howard Stern Show in the 1990s and 2000s, Trump speculated about his chances with various women - including our very own Princess Diana.  

In 1997, a few months after she was killed in a car accident,

Trump told Stern he thinks he could have slept with her, saying she had “supermodel beauty.”

Trump also claims that Diana wrote him a letter a few months before she died "thanking me for something". He doesn't reveal what the favour was, despite repeated questioning from Stern:

"She asked me to do something, I did it, and she wrote me a really nice letter... I sent her some flowers... Instead of following up, like a schmuckrobin, I didn't."

Stern then speculates about whether Trump still "pleasures himself" while thinking about the princess. 

Listen to the full horror here: 

Then, in 2000:

Trump said he would have slept with her “without hesitation” and that “she had the height, she had the beauty, she had the skin.” He added, “She was crazy, but these are minor details.”

During the same appearance, Trump named his top ten most beautiful women. The list included Mariah Carey, Cindy Crawford, and, you guessed it, Diana. 

Much as your mole loves and misses the princess, this is one tribute she could have done without. 

I'm a mole, innit.
