Britain’s Prince Charles became a Twitter trend when he appeared to snub Vice President Mike Pence by completing ignoring him during a receiving line at a Holocaust remembrance event. You can watch video of the moment, which has gone viral on Twitter, later in this article. However, the VP’s press secretary revealed that the prince and vice president spoke before and after the prince’s remarks, disputing the narrative.
Although the British Royal Family famously stays out of politics, some people thought Prince Charles’ snubbing of Pence was purposeful. That’s not clear, of course, but the video caused Pence critics to go wild on Twitter with praise for the heir to the British throne.
