The Queen’s met lotsÂ of foreign leaders at this point in her life, she has been on the throne for 65 years.
But this weekend may have been one of her more memorable meetings with a foreign leader when she met with U.S. president Donald Trump.
And he broke a whole bunch of royal etiquette rules.Â Â
It’s said thatÂ The Queen’s grandchildren, Prince Harry and Prince William, each asked to be excluded so they would not have to meet Trump.

Donald Trump was doing things wrong before he even showed up for his meeting with the Queen. He kept theÂ 92-years-old monarchÂ waiting outside for about 15 minutes.Â
It got so bad that the Queen was actually spotted checking her watch.Â Â

When he finallyÂ showed up, heÂ failed toÂ bow to the Queen. Thankfully she didn’t seem to mind and was seen smiling at Trump and his wife Melania while shaking their hands.
Tradition is not the only thing #Trump breaks!
The Independent “Trump immediately breaches royal protocol twice after meeting Queen – first fails to bow then walks in front of monarch, breaking with tradition”#TrumpUKVisit pic.twitter.com/ew0ikCDZgq

Just a few minutes later, Trump did manage to upset the Queen when the pair set out to review some troops lined up.Â
Trump got a head start on QueenÂ then stopped abruptly, forcing the monarch to shuffle around him.Â

When he and the Queen did finally get lined up side by side he then started walking faster than her leaving her behind him.Â
Royal tradition says that it is rude to turn your back on the monarch and walk in front of them.Â Â
Finally,Â Trump revealed that he and the Queen had talked about Britain leaving the European Union, otherwise known as Brexit, something you aren’t supposed to do.Â Â
He revealedÂ that the Queen told him that it’s a “complex issue.”Â
When asked for more details on the conversation Trump realized he’d made a mistake though saying “Well, I canât talk, you know Iâve heard very strongly from a lot of people, you just donât talk about that conversation with the Queen, right?”Â Â
We’re sure the Queen is probably happy his visit is over.Â Â
