US President Donald Trump met Britain's Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle on Friday.

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. 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.

He then departed Windsor Castle by helicopter for London, where he took Air Force One to Scotland.

In an interview with The Sun, Trump praised Queen Elizabeth, calling her a "tremendous woman".

Trump was in the United Kingdom while on a trip through Europe. "As offensive as Trump was, he was not actually as late as everyone thought". "I think she represents her country so well". You don't see, like, anything embarrassing.

"For all those asking, no, Trump did not keep the Queen waiting". "Mary Jo Jacobi, a former aide to President Ronald Reagan, told CNBC's "Squawk Box Europe", that "[Trump] has already won, he is meeting with the queen and his lifelong wish has been meeting with the Her Majesty so from his personal perspective it is a win already".

"That wouldn't be required from a head of state or the wife of a head of state", he said.

The trade deal's fate, though, really hangs on the fragility and temperamental nature of Trump's mood and, if he looks out his hotel window at the mass protests and demonstrations happening in London, it might well be called off once again.

In his book "The Art of the Comeback" Trump even said he wished that he was able to "court" Princess Diana, who died in a vehicle crash in 1997. "Come on Kate!" he wrote.

Elizabeth, however, was noticeably absent from Prince Louis' christening on Monday.

Prince Charles is a keen environmentalist.

A source close to Trump was quoted as saying: "He won't put up with being lectured by anyone, even a member of the royal family".

Here's a theory: someone's job must be to exclusively carry First Lady Melania Trump's stuff.
