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?

Could be a security issue that he was late. There are forest and skyscrapers where he was... Anybody could have picked him off from 1+ miles. 

"ROGER" - He will be walking up the path at 1400 hours.... Jus saying.

I do not expect my president to defer to the queen of some second rate power any more than I would expect him to bow and scrape before the king of Lesotho or the Zulus.

And head of state of 16 other countries!

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.

Ist. Barak Obama

I never thought I would see so much twaddle over one minor event. The newspaper gave the correct comment, her radar went out of whack. Get over it.

There probably was but the orange oaf thinks he's further up the protocol foodchain than the Queen. He is, after all, a repeatedly self-proclaimed genius.

Everyone is just looking for gaffes and it might have been a small mistake but what's the problem?  someone get killed?  small protocol problems are common when you come from a republic to a monarchy 

Didn't one or other of the Obama's actually touch HM on their state visit?

 

Yes, it was the First Lady back in 2009.

 

Much ado about nothing. A couple of Australian PM's have been similarly lacking in etiquette; the nominally acceptable John Howard did it first but the infamous Paul Keating's 'Lizard of Oz' moment is the one that's more frequently talked about. It's also claimed that "Dubya" inexplicably winked at HM once.

 I notice you are not telling me i am wrong.

Respect is something that is lacking in the world today, most people in your country have lost the ability to show respect to anyone, that is a reason you have got a buffoon as your president, he is just what you disrespectful people deserve.

I'm still waiting...

Your opinion is irrelevant. Americans don't care about the UK or what the British think. As for this episode. Please keep it up. The fact that the president of the US did not bow before a monarch will help in the upcoming elections. Rejecting monarchy is pretty much what the country was founded upon. I can't wait to see the Democrats running on a platform of submitting to the UK monarch. Fact is, we don't need you. Go play with the Germans.

Yes Trumpy for a couple of years will think he is the nuts but the UK Queen has over half a century of respect and knows where ever she goes can deal with what is right and wrong with whom she meets..

You're not Thai.

Do you observe proper protocol in regards to the King? 

Yes, because it's the proper, respectful thing to do.

Not if you are the Head of State of another country. I would show the proper protocol to the Queen, the King and the President of France, but I don't expect them to do anything more than shake hands between themselves.
