Queen Elizabeth welcomes Trump to Windsor Castle

Trump then took a turn with the Queen to inspect the Guard before the whole party headed inside for afternoon tea. The trio watched as the Coldstream Guards marched past the dais in flawless formation and the military band played before they entered the Sovereign's Entrance of Windsor Castle for tea precisely 10 minutes after their arrival.

The queen stood by herself in front of her guards for a solid few minutes as she waited for the Trumps to arrive, at one point even glancing at her watch to check the time.

While it was the Trumps' first meeting with Queen Elizabeth, it's not their first royal encounter.

A Guard of Honour, formed by the Coldstream Guards, gave a Royal Salute and the US National Anthem was played.

Following the inspection POTUS and FLOTUS joined the queen for tea. The President wore a suit and tie and the first lady wore a pale pink suit with a skirt and black belt.

The Queen has received three other US Presidents at Windsor Castle since the 1980s - Barack Obama in 2016, Mr Bush in 2008 and Ronald Reagan in 1982.

Queen Elizabeth II became the monarch on February 6th 1952, when her father George VI died.

As the Queen and Mr Trump reviewed the troops, a rare honour for a visiting head of state, the American let the royal take the lead, slowing his pace to match the 92-year-old monarch.

Thousands began protesting in London as British Prime Minister Theresa May welcomed US President Donald Trump to her official country residence for a meeting that is expected to be unusually tense, after he trashed her Brexit plan in a newspaper interview.

"She's looking forward to sitting down with the president and talking him through the white paper", May's spokesman of the government's proposals and when asked about Trump's interview with the Sun. 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 don't see, like, anything embarrassing. Protests have been organised to follow him everywhere around the United Kingdom, with a demonstration planned for Friday afternoon in London where organisers expect tens of thousands to attend.
