#Repost @theroyalfamily ・・・ Today marks the start of the #USStateVisit. President Trump and Mrs. Melania Trump were met by The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall on the lawn before being welcomed by The Queen on the West Terrace of Buckingham Palace. Upon arrival a Royal Salute was fired by The King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery from Green Park (41 guns) and at the Tower of London by The Honourable Artillery Company (62 guns). The Guard of Honour, found by Nijmegen Company, Grenadier Guards, gave a Royal Salute before the US National Anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner, was played by the Band of the Regiment. The President @realdonaldtrump accompanied by The Prince of Wales, inspected the Guard of Honour watched by The Queen, the First Lady and The Duchess of Cornwall.
"The President and the Queen also reaffirmed that the United States and the United Kingdom stand together in our Special Relationship and will emerge from this trying time stronger than ever before," Deere elaborated.
President Trump also wished the Queen a happy birthday. Even though she officially turned 94 in April, the Queen's birthday is not publically celebrated by the public until June.
The history between the Queen and President Trump is a relatively short one. While the Trumps most recently visited the royals in December to mark the 70th anniversary of NATO, they officially met for the first time back in July 2018.
President Trump and his wife Melania went across the pond for an official visit, and Queen Elizabeth showed the presidential pair everything from the Guard of Honor to enjoying a spot of afternoon tea with First Lady Melania.
When the Trump's returned to the UK for a three-day visit in commemoration of D-Day's 75th anniversary, the Queen reportedly had such a good time that President Trump got blamed for it.
During an interview on "Fox and Friends," President Trump reportedly said that he shares "such a great relationship" with the Queen that they ended up "laughing and having fun." But apparently, President Trump received criticism for causing the Queen to have more fun than she's had in "25 years," saying that they were "having to much fun."

Apart from the Queen's birthday, the royal family also had another to celebrate earlier in June. Prince William turned 38, and the Queen and his dad, Prince Charles wished him a happy day on social media.
Prince Charles posted a sweet snap taken by Kate Middleton of the father-and-son duo in December, and he sent heartfelt and happy wishes for the day, as did his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II.
