Donald Trump keeps Queen waiting before Windsor Castle tea

All eyes were on the President and the First Lady as they first stepped out of their auto to greet Her Majesty - and many royal-watchers were quick to notice that there was no curtsy from Melania, while Donald did briefly nod his head as he arrived at Windsor Castle.

There were handshakes, smiles and the USA national anthem was played by the military band as the Trumps placed their hands over their hearts.

While Trump's trip was not the full state visit he was originally promised, he was heralded by military bands on his arrival at Windsor, before he and First Lady Melania were due to have tea with the 92-year-old queen.

Philip, who has now retired from public duties, even took the responsibility of driving the Obamas, and the Queen, the short distance from their helicopter to the castle in the Queen's Range Rover.

President Donald Trump met with Queen Elizabeth.

Amid several protests over Trump's presence in the UK, the U.S. leader held a joint press conference with UK Prime Minister Theresa May, 61, earlier today. "As offensive as Trump was, he was not actually as late as everyone thought".

Trump replied: "I think I could have". You don't see, like, anything embarrassing.

Judi James said the American leader appeared to be unable to contain his excitement at meeting the monarch in her historic royal residence.

"My wife is a tremendous fan of hers", he said.

But the Trumps kept the Queen waiting on the dais in the Quadrangle during the ceremonial welcome. "The queen expected Trump to embarrass himself with bits of rude behavior and was prepared for anything. I really look forward to meeting her", Trump said. Mary Anne MacLeod Trump, who emigrated to the U.S.in 1930, died in 2000.

"Who wouldn't take Kate's picture and make lots of money if she does the nude sunbathing thing".

"Kate Middleton is great - but she shouldn't be sunbathing in the nude - only herself to blame".

Trump will not be meeting Queen Elizabeth's eldest son and William's father Prince Charles, the heir to the throne.

Trump has talked at length about the royal family over the years.

President Trump and the First Lady Melania, 48, landed in London yesterday.
