President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump met the Queen of England at Windsor Castle, and in a welcome gesture, a Guard of Honour, formed by the Coldstream Guards, gave a Royal Salute before the US national anthem was played, reported The Telegraph on the 13th of July 2018.

As the Coldstream Guards played the US national anthem, the Presidential couple stood ramrod straight, hands on their hearts, with the Queen between them.

The Presidential couple spent a total of 57 minutes with the Queen, and 47 of those minutes were inside the Her Majesty's favorite Palace having a private tea party with Her Majesty.

The meeting between the heads of state seems to have gone well, although the couple committed a few faux pas, unknowingly breaching Royal Protocol.

"If you think of it, for so many years she has represented her country, she has really never made a mistake. You don't see, like, anything embarrassing. She is just an incredible woman.

When he exited the car, Trump did not bow but bobbed his head slightly to Her Majesty, and Melania did not curtesy to the Queen.

Later, as they inspected the Coldstream Guards, the President stepped in front of the Queen, blocking her way and forcing her to step around him.

According to protocol, no-one, not even the Prince Consort steps ahead of a reigning monarch. The Queen, as gracious and collected as ever, smiled and led her guests into the Palace.

The Trump's visit is markedly shorter than previous presidential visits to Windsor Castle, with the Queen, 92, greeting her guests alone since the Duke of Edinburgh's retirement from public life.

To greet the Trumps, her Majesty opted for an elegant blue dress, white gloves, and a matching hat, and Melania looked supremely elegant chic in a Christian Dior suit in a pale pink-cream shade
