Flynn, Dubke, Shaub, Corallo, Spicer, Priebus, Scaramucci, Bannon, Gorka - the list of departed staffers from the Trump White House grows longer and longer.

The surviving cabal at the head of President Donald Trump's dwindling retinue appears to be the faction led by First Daughter Ivanka Trump, and her husband Jared Kushner.

Alongside the plethora of military officers who now hold civilian posts in the administration.

According to Vanity Fair, the White House aides that remain have an unflattering nickname for the Assistant to the President.

One former staffer told Vanity Fair:

Excuse me, this is not a royal family, and she's not the princess royal.

'Princess Royal' is the nickname that has apparently stuck.

One assumes this is a reference to nepotism, rather than any likeness she may resemble to Anne, Princess Royal.

Aides should be wary, as President Trump has been at his most volatile when opponents attack his family.

At a G20 summit, after the First Daughter 'sat in' for President Trump while he absented himself, the President took to the airwaves to defend his daughter from accusations that she benefited from nepotism.

If she weren't my daughter it would be so much easier for her...It might be the only bad thing she has going, if you want to know the truth.
