'Tremendous fan' Melania Trump meets Queen Elizabeth in shell-pink Dior




 

Donald and Melania Trump visited Windsor Castle on Friday for tea with Queen Elizabeth II, and the first lady is apparently a "tremendous fan" of the British monarch.

The afternoon event marked the first meeting between the Trumps and the British royals (save for last fall, when Melania and Prince Harry met in Canada during her first solo trip abroad), and it is, according to the president, a highlight for Melania. "My wife is a tremendous fan of hers. She has got a great and beautiful grace about her," POTUS told the U.K. Sun Friday.


The Trumps landed at Windsor by helicopter and were treated to an arrival ceremony with the queen and the guard of honor, with Melania looking regal in a Dior shell-pink skirt suit, with her hair styled in an updo. Almost immediately, the president made headlines for not bowing to the queen, a tradition that even palace officials have determined is "not necessary."

Of the 92-year-old monarch, Trump said: "I really look forward to meeting her. I think she represents her country so well. If you think of it, for so many years she has represented her country, she has really never made a mistake. You don't see, like, anything embarrassing. She is just an incredible woman."


After attending the NATO Summit in Belgium, where Melania wore a navy blue Calvin Klein fit-and-flare dress and white Christian Louboutin heels, the first family arrived in England on Thursday. Their itinerary included a state dinner with Prime Minister Theresa May and her husband, Philip; a tour of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst; and a press conference to discuss foreign policy.

The first couple landed at Stansted Airport in Essex, with Melania disembarking in a $1,365 taupe dress by Roland Mouret (just one day after Meghan Markle wore the brand in Ireland), amid huge protests in London, which included a giant balloon depicting the president as a baby and signs that read "World's #1 racist" and "American psycho."

On Thursday evening, to attend a dinner at Blenheim Palace, the first lady made an impression wearing an off-the-shoulder, yellow J. Mendel gown and silk Manolo Blahnik pumps, drawing comparisons to Belle from Disney's Beauty and the Beast.

On Thursday, for a meeting with British Army veterans at Royal Hospital Chelsea in London, Melania color-blocked in a blue, tan, and orange dress by Victoria Beckham.
