The US President has been accused of snubbing the Queen Elizabeth twice during their meeting today. First, he ‘kept the 92-year-old monarch waiting’ before turning up for tea at Windsor Castle.
The Queen was pictured standing up and checking her watch in anticipation, until he arrived right on the dot. After he did show up, photos show how he walked off in front of her as they inspected the guard, appearing ‘oblivious’ to her.
People were not very happy about it… Say what you like about politics, but nobody puts Her Majesty in the corner. She was left tagging along behind ‘Rude, rude, rude’
Very few people are this oblivious to the actual Queen. Very few people are this oblivious to the Actual Queen,’ Janine Gibson wrote. Others agreed with her, accusing the president of showing a lack of class and awareness — or worse, ‘being really insulting on purpose’.
Simon Ricketts had an alternative take, however, saying the Queen prompted him forward ‘like she was training one of her dogs as Trump struggled to master the act of walking’. Judge for yourself: Earlier on, the Queen appeared to be wondering where her guest was as she waited for their meeting. Reporter Mark Di Stefano claimed she was left waiting for ten minutes in the heat. ‘So Trump arrived *on the dot* at the appointed time,’ one user responded on Twitter. ‘Please. When one meets the Queen of England, “early is on time and on time is late”.
A viral photo from their meeting shows Donald and Melania Trump grinning on either side of Queen Elizabeth, who has more of a grim look on her face. None of them look particularly comfortable, but we’re sure they found plenty to talk about during their tea inside Windsor Castle – like the time he said he could have ‘nailed’ Princess Diana. Say cheese
