How Trump's meeting with Queen unfolded at Windsor Castle

Queen Elizabeth II greets New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern in April

US President Donald Trump kept his handshake short and stooped to hear what Queen Elizabeth had to say as the 92-year-old monarch welcomed him to Windsor Castle outside London on Friday.

All eyes were on the President and the First Lady as they first stepped out of their vehicle 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 US national anthem is due to be played as the Queen and Trump inspect the Guard of Honour, before watching the military march past.

As the red carpet was rolled out at Windsor Castle, thousands gathered at a "Stop Trump" rally in London's Trafalgar Square.

The U.S. president and First Lady Melania Trump are in the United Kingdom for two days this week between the NATO Summit in Brussels yesterday and Trump's upcoming meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the weekend.

Unlike with Prime Minister Theresa May earlier in the day and in previous meetings, Mr Trump did not attempt to hold the hand of his female host as they came down the stairs to inspect the troops. She was being thoughtful.

"You could see that suppressed dominance where he felt that he had to still motion to her".

Germany will make sovereign decision on military spending Europe 15:49
President Donald Trump into hiking military spending, saying that his country would make its own "sovereign" decisions. Describing the dynamics of the talks, he said, "I was using the term a lot today: burden-sharing".

While it was the Trumps' first meeting with Queen Elizabeth, it's not their first royal encounter.

"If you're a guest of hers, she will put you at her ease", Alastair Bruce, a royal expert and ABC News consultant said.

Just one in three (35 per cent) thought the monarch should meet Trump, as opposed to half (49 per cent) who thought she should not. And while the greeting looked polite, some viewers were left shocked that Trump and his wife had not bowed to the Queen. Mary Anne MacLeod Trump, who emigrated to the U.S.in 1930, died in 2000.

"Kate Middleton is great - but she shouldn't be sunbathing in the nude - only herself to blame".

Prince Charles is a keen environmentalist.

As part of his ongoing working visit to the UK, Trump and his wife, first lady Melania Trump, will join the monarch for tea. Royal commentator Victoria Arbiter, who works for CNN, Trump's least favourite news network, insisted he was on time.
