President and Melania Trump warmly welcomed by Queen, royal family at Buckingham Palace


President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump captured the world’s attention Tuesday when, during their trip abroad for the ongoing NATO Summit in London, the duo mingled with the U.K.’s royal family first at Clarence House and then at Buckingham Palace.

The social gathering began with the president — adorned in a dark blue suit, white shirt and blue tie — and Melania — adorned in a yellow Valentino coat and fuchsia heels — enjoying tea at Clarence House, the home of Prince Charles and Camilla.

After having tea with the royal couple, the duo then departed for Buckingham Palace for a NATO 70-year anniversary reception hosted by Queen Elizabeth and featuring — along with Prince Charles and Camilla — Kate Middleton, the wife of Prince William.

“Absent from the reception were William, who is currently on an official visit to Kuwait and Oman, along with Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, as they are taking a break from royal duties until the new year,” Fox News reported.

Melania drew immediate attention upon arriving at the palace as per the unbridled, newfound confidence she appeared to display.

“Melania arrived looking regal [to the NATO event], showing how her and her husband’s body language rituals together have changed since they first went into the White House and how much her status and confidence signals have grown,” body language expert Judi James said in a statement to the Daily Express.

“Tonight it was Melania getting out of the car first at the Palace, addressing the press before turning to look for her husband. … Unlike the days when Melania would trail in the President’s wake, tonight she was presented to the hosts by her husband and often instigated the handshakes.” explained Judi.

Also in attendance at the reception were other world leaders, including blackface-wearing Canadian President Justin Trudeau, French President Emmanuel Macron and U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Not to mention Jeremy Corbyn, the anti-Semitic, socialist leader of the U.K.’s Labour Party. Corbyn had reportedly pledged to confront Trump about the country’s National Health Service, which he worries will be “sold off” to the U.S. if Johnson’s Brexit plan goes through.

But not only was he reportedly blocked from speaking with the president at Buckingham Palace, but Trump later made a statement to reporters denying that he has any interest in buying the U.K.’s healthcare system.

“In this country, no, they have to work that out for themselves,” he said. “We have absolutely, I don’t even know where that rumor started, we have absolutely nothing to do with it and we wouldn’t want to. If you handed [the NHS] to us on a silver platter, we want nothing to do with it.”


Following their reception at Buckingham Palace, the president and first lady reportedly traveled to 10 Downing Street for another reception — this one hosted by Boris.

At this reception, the U.K. Prime Minister reportedly delivered a speech about solidarity and then met privately with Trump “to discuss the military alliance’s budget and the inflamed violence in northern Syria,” according to the Daily Mail.

“The Prime Minister also updated the President on this afternoon’s meeting between France, Germany, Turkey and the UK to discuss the situation in Syria,” a Downing Street spokesperson reportedly confirmed.

In tweets posted Wednesday morning, the president and Melania thanked their hosts for the “wonderful” experiences.
