The Queen welcomes US President and First Lady
THE QUEEN welcomed US President Donald Trump to Windsor Castle as the official part of his whirlwind visit to the UK drew to a close.
The Queen greeted the US leader and First Lady Melania Trump in the quadrangle of the royal residence – a home to kings and queens for centuries.
Waiting to be inspected by Mr Trump was a guard of honour, formed by one of the Army’s longest serving units, the 1st Battalion Coldstream Guards, in their red tunics and bearskins. Ahead of the meeting between the heads of state, Mr Trump spoke of his admiration for the Queen in a newspaper interview, in which he called her a “tremendous woman”. He said: “If you think of it, for so many years she has represented her country, she has really never made a mistake. You don’t see, like, anything embarrassing. She is just an incredible woman.
“My wife is a tremendous fan of hers. She has got a great and beautiful grace about her.”
