The Queen and Prince Philip reportedly loved it when royal engagements did not go as planned. A particular incident that caused royal watchers to laugh took place when Donald Trump visited the Queen at Windsor Castle. The Royal Family Channel on YouTube reported the incident.

 

They said: “Who could forget the time Her Majesty met President Trump.

“The Queen cut a frustrated figure ushering the US President along as he made some royal faux pas while inspecting the Guard of Honour at Windsor Castle.”

They added: “In a comical moment, as he walked alongside her inspecting the Coldstream Guards, he appeared to have some directional issues – and BLOCKED her.

“The Queen dressed all in blue, is pointing where the American businessman should walk as they inspect the troops.

“Trump then walks in front of the Queen, with the monarch dwarfed by his large frame.”

The Daily Mirror added that Donald Trump “seemed a little lost as he inspected the Coldstream Guards, and so did Queen Elizabeth for a moment.”

Inspecting the Guard of Honour is an important ceremonial event that takes place during a state visit. 

The visits usually last two or three days and start with an official reception at either Horse Guards in London, Windsor Castle or the Palace of Hollyrood House in Edinburgh.

Prince William recently looked back at their relationship saying: “They live a life where everything has to go right the whole time, so when things go wrong, they both chuckle an awful lot.

“Everyone else gets mortally embarrassed, but they love it.”
