Trump Keeps Queen Elizabeth Waiting for Tea, Follows it Up With Other Protocol Breaches
Queen Elizabeth II welcomed US President Donald Trump for tea at Windsor Castle on Friday — a meeting which many Britons find the toughest part of his already contentious trip to swallow.
Trump walked ahead of the 92-year-old while inspecting troops and did not bow when he met her — a couple of minor protocol breaches. But what riled up royal watchers was reportedly the US President’s tardiness.
According to a report in Vanity Fair, Trump kept the 92-year-old sovereign waiting in the blazing sun, arriving for tea only after 5 pm.
The meeting, however, went smoothly. Trump was gracious about the British sovereign in a newspaper interview, in which he attacked Prime Minister Theresa May’s strategy on Brexit.
