Trumps get royal treatment at tea with Queen Elizabeth II

Adjust Comment Print

The Queen and the President inspected the Guard of Honour before watching the military march past.

Later on Friday, the president was due to pay a visit to Windsor Castle where he and First Lady Melania Trump will have tea with Queen Elizabeth II.

Then they headed indoors and away from the cameras for their meeting over tea. The president is about 6-foot-2, and Mrs. Trump is near that in her spiky heels.

The queen noticeably checked her watch while waiting for the US President.

Again, Mr Trump appeared to be in breach of protocol as he walked a step ahead of the Queen.

The Trumps and the queen were scheduled to spend about 30 minutes getting acquainted over tea inside the castle but the visit stretched past 45 minutes.

In his book "The Art of the Comeback" Trump even said he wished that he was able to "court" Princess Diana, who died in a auto crash in 1997.

Chelsea fly in the face of the game's old logic that stability is the bedrock of success. Then, as has happened so often at Chelsea , it turned sour quickly.

The protests come one day after Trump referenced the unflattering balloon during an explosive interview with British tabloid publication The Sun, saying how Londoners make him feel "unwelcome".

"She didn't agree, she didn't listen to me", he told The Sun.

"I think it changed the fabric of Europe and, unless you act very quickly, it's never going to be what it was and I don't mean that in a positive way".

We may never know if Trump was actually late, or if the queen has a habit of checking her watch, but we should point out that it's interesting how no other members of the royal family appeared at the visit with the United States president. You don't see, like, anything embarrassing. Trump's mother was born in Scotland.

"My mother loved the queen".

The Queen, whose father was on the throne when Donald Trump's Scottish-born mother became a U.S. citizen in 1942, has hosted 12 USA presidents, only missing Lyndon B Johnson.

The photographs showing them holding hands and Mrs May's unexpected offer of a state visit to Britain showed the lengths she was willing to go to demonstrate the closeness of the trans-Atlantic "special relationship".
