  • Donald Trump meets Britain's Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle

"But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?" Trump, who is known for his lengthy, powerful and intense handshakes, had many a little anxious about what would happen when he met the world's longest-serving monarch.

A January 2017 report in The Sunday Times newspaper said Trump and Charles would not meet during his visit to Britain due to their strongly divergent views on climate change.

The 92-year-old queen - the longest-serving monarch in British history - has met every US president since Harry Truman, except for Lyndon Johnson. Melania Trump did not bow or curtsy. They played bowls with Chelsea Pensioners and visited a primary school.

Donald Trump met Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle on Friday but the 92-year-old monarch was forced at one point to walk around the US president after he halted abruptly during a ceremonial inspection of the guard. His comment prompted May to insist that Britain will be leaving the EU.

The Trump's warm welcome at Windsor Castle was in sharp contrast to the huge protests taking place just 20 miles away in London as 250,000 protesters took to the streets of the city. Her gait has slowed over the years and she walks slowly and carefully.

Knowing that the president idolizes the wartime leader, some have suggested that the British have crafted the entire visit to rub Trump's ego ahead of the all-important trade talks.

"He did that with Theresa May at Chequers, motioning her through her own door first".




Trump later apologised to her over his interview with The Sun in which he suggested her Brexit -proposal was not what the British people voted for.

"CNN is fake news", he said. Oh dear, she just looked at her watch.

Bannon told The Daily Telegraph that President Trump had offered May some of the advice contained in his book The Art of the Deal, which suggests: "Overshoot your target, be tough and get on with it".

Trump's visit to Windsor castle will be filled with all the pomp ceremony of a royal visit, with the two heads of state reviewing troops before retiring to the castle for a spot of tea.

The president's critics on Twitter were quick to call him out for briefly walking in front of the queen, which is reportedly a social faux pas, during a ceremonial inspection of the Guard of Honor.

Those comments led to embarrassing front page headlines in the United Kingdom and cast a shadow over their press conference Friday morning.

A big balloon funded by protesters which depicts Donald Trump as a giant, angry baby has been banned from the sky above his Turnberry golf course, police have said.
