The Queen wel­comes US Pres­i­dent and First Lady

The Chronicle - - National -

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.”
