Donald Trump has tea with 'tremendous' Queen

US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump were greeted at Windsor Castle by Her Majesty the Queen and a military band.

One group - Together Against Trump - wanted to use a double-decker bus as a platform for speeches but were refused.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders shared a photo of President Donald Trump sitting in the chair that once belonged to Winston Churchill.

There were formal handshakes and a review of the royal guards.

The Queen chatted with the Trumps as planes were heard overhead.

The Queen, who is used to inspecting her guards, appeared to leave him behind before she spurred him into movement again with a swift hand gesture.

Next, the President and Queen inspected the front rank of the Guard of Honour, while the first lady remained on the dais. His meeting with Queen Elizabeth comes after Trump was widely condemned by British lawmakers for comments he made in the same interview about May as well as on the topic of mass immigration in Europe.

Ms May's "business-friendly" Brexit plan - which would keep Britain in a free trade zone for goods with the European Union but mean it has to share some European Union rules - was agreed by her cabinet only last Friday after two years of wrangling since Britons voted to leave the bloc in a 2016 referendum.

Kris Jenner is proud of all her children, but she's also not afraid to poke a little fun at herself or her famous family members. According to WWD , Kylie Cosmetics is projected to rake in $1 billion in lifetime sales by 2022.

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.

Trump gushed about how excited he was to meet the queen in an interview with The Sun beforehand.

Trump said May could not now walk away from negotiations with Brussels "because if she walks away she's stuck". Why, you ask? Because about 12 hours before this meeting, Trump blasted May for her handling of Brexit and said that he "told [her] how to do it but she didn't listen".

"You could see that suppressed dominance where he felt that he had to still motion to her".

Just one in three (35 per cent) thought the monarch should meet Trump, as opposed to half (49 per cent) who thought she should not.

"My mother loved the Queen". Mr Trump has met with Prince Charles previously, while Melania met with Prince Harry during the Invictus Games in Canada in 2016.
