The President and First Lady did not bow or curtsy, but shook hands with Queen Elizabeth upon greeting her. Trump then took a turn with the Queen to inspect the Guard before the whole party headed inside for afternoon tea. Why, you ask? Because about 12 hours before this meeting, Trump blasted May for her handling of Brexit and said that he "told [her] how to do it but she didn't listen".
Vickers expects the royal visit to go smoothly despite the many controversies swirling around Trump's visit to the U.K. He says the queen will form an impression of the American president but will not share it, given her penchant for keeping her thoughts to herself and her very closest family.
The Queen escaped any extended hand-holding, faced in the past by world leaders such as the Prime Minister and French President Emmanuel Macron.
In an interview with British newspaper The Sun in which Trump also attacked Prime Minister Theresa May over her strategy for exiting the European Union, the president said that the queen had "never made a mistake" during her long reign.
The Queen received the Trumps during a royal welcoming ceremony a bit more warmly.
In an interview with British tabloid newspaper The Sun, published Friday morning, Trump had said that a US trade deal was off because he did not support the prime minister's moderate plan to leave the European Union trade bloc.

During Donald Trump's first visit to the United Kingdom as President of the United States, he finally met with Queen Elizabeth II. Considering her estimated net worth is $50 million, dishing out $10,000 for a bag probably just feels like reaching for pocket change to her.
However, it seems his 48-year-old wife Melania was trying to impress as the president revealed she's a huge fan. "Then to add insult to injury he keeps the Queen waiting 15 mins, doesn't bow just shakes her", tweeted Melanie Cassandra Burstall.
The queen is known to dislike revealing clothing, so it is expected that Mrs. Trump will wear a fashionable but conservative outfit. You don't see, like, anything embarrassing.
For her Scottish arrival, Trump wore pointed-toe camel Manolo Blahnik pumps with matching Michael Kors trousers and a green Burberry jacket, all earth-tone items that blended into the tarmac and only helped her show off the expensive handbag, not hide it.
