Agreed, the tradition of keeping royal families should have been abolished long ago,... but it wasn't.  Truth is many, perhaps even most, Brits love their royals, so when Trump disrespects the Queen, he's actually disrespecting much of the English population.  Unfortunately for the US, Trump excels at insulting people.

But not insulting Big Macs with fries....He just loves the no table cutlery etiquette thing....?

Not quite true, only about 50% of the British population like the monarchy, infact a third would like to get rid of it.

What can you expect from a man who has no respect for anybody.

Just a buffoon, no manners, no sense of protocol, no nothing but hot air.

Or anything between the ears...……….an oaf and a buffoon!

Anybody surprised? Of course not. It was totally predictable and Mayhem needs to resign immediately. If not the Tories need to oust her now.

The American head of state does not bow his head to some hereditary monarch from a dinky has been country.

Trump isn't British so what has he to do with British royal protocol? You Brits still think you rule the world, don't you?

That he was 10 minutes late, i doubt that he was driving the car, so maybe he isn't to be blamed for that.

Donald Trump is a British citizen…if he wants to be. His mother was born in the UK and, therefore, he has an entitlement to register as a British citizen. However, one hurdle lies in his path, one obstacle whose shape and size may shift according to the eye of the beholder, one ineluctable rule not to be avoided: he must pass the ‘good character’ test. To succeed in taking up the nationality of his mother; the nationality cast aside by his country in 1776, Mr Trump must satisfy a United Kingdom Secretary of State that he is a man of good character. What chance does he have?

Donald Trump has no respect for anyone,.  in the UK or the USA. Here is a case of power corrupting ,that this man controls such. A powerful country is frightening.

I just saw the video. Trump did NOT block the queen. She walked in back of him while he was inspecting the  guard. She then went back to where she was before , and they inspected the guard together. This is fake news and an outright lie.

Not a good look for the President of the USA., but momentarily blocking the Queen's path can likely be put it down to lack of spatial awareness in the moment.

More likely a total lack of any social awareness out side his own head.

I think we can just chalk it up to awareness in general.   She is the queen, you do not forget where she is.   He also turned his back to her and he did not bother to bow or lower his head.  He also showed up 10 minutes late.

 

The rules may be stiff, but they exist for a reason, and that reason establishes that we have respect for both the person and the position.   She showed her respect by allowing him to have visit her at Windsor.   It would have been nice for him to return the respect.  

She is the Queen of the UK. Trump is the President of the USA. When he realized she was not next to him he stopped and waited. It's not his duty to make sure she keeps up. Now, if she was walking with me or you, different matter. The King of Thailand did not defer to the the Q of E and neither should the President of the USA. It's one of the many things that people in the USA found distasteful about Obama.

 

You folks forget the USA is not part of the Commonwealth.

Plus keeping the Queen waiting as he was late.... and then there was lack of a courteous bow and courtesy by Melania. Was there no protocol briefing?

The Obamas shook hands, but you feel the Trumps should bow and curtsey?

 

There is no way they could have pulled off this visit without criticism. Some were even complaining about his suit being open and his tie too long.

 

2 posts in the Daily Mail forum stood out to me:

 

Elizabeth, Columbus, United States, about 2 hours ago

 

"I respectfully must disagree. I do not think Trump showed any disrespect whatsoever. He was deferential and pleasant to the Queen and clearly showed he was thrilled to be there. And as I already posted, he was on time for the meeting. In my view, I don't think he should have made the trip at all. He saw the Prime Minister at other meetings, so this trip was not necessary. Nothing he could have said or done would have yielded him any fair press coverage. And the U.S. taxpayers could use the money spent on this trip for something else. The American public had no interest in this trip because people are smarter than they are given credit for. They knew it would accomplish absolutely nothing for the average American, except provide more opportunities to look down upon them as stupid.."

 

"I forgot to add, Trump, as a head of state, is not required to walk a few paces behind the Queen. They are equal in rank. And, as I said, in another post, he did not walk in front of her, she walked behind him. He was looking ahead and remained in place where he thought he was supposed to be. For some reason, she fell back and walked around him. I think she was going to go on his other side and changed her mind. Because Trump is supposed to be aligned next to the troops on his left. A military aide should have been closer to give him clearer directions. At any rate, too much is being made of all this. I think everything went off well. I still don't know why he went there. If the British Government wanted him to meet a royal, then Charles or someone could have traveled to Washington. They all had to know what reaction there would be in the press. when he visited. Nothing he could have done would have been good enough."

What a stupid comment, obviously you are ignorant of the facts, as previous American presidents have bowed to the Queen.

Now i await you saying i am wrong, if you do i will have to name the presidents who have done so.
