Twitter erupts as Trump arrives late to meet Queen Elizabeth

A giant balloon of "Trump Baby" in a diaper took flight over Britain's Houses of Parliament Friday, kicking off a day of widespread protests against the United States leader's controversial visit to the UK.

Mr Trump's first visit to Britain as president was not the full state visit he was originally promised, but he was heralded by military bands on his arrival at Windsor, before he and First Lady Melania went into the castle for tea with the queen.

Once the Trumps arrived they were greeted with a smile from the queen, so whether she was upset about the wait-time or not, she hid it.

"Did Donald Trump just WALK IN FRONT OF THE QUEEN?!?!?!" asked one clearly offended user. The President wore a suit and tie and the first lady wore a pale pink Dior suit with matching skirt and black belt. With the queen in the middle, the Trumps seemed to tower over the monarch, who stands roughly 5-foot-3.

While Trump typically likes to take the lead, he appeared to follow the queen's direction, adjusting his pace to hers.

Trump also said Sadiq Khan has shown the US a lack of respect after London's City Hall, run by the London Mayor, granted permission for a six-metre inflatable of the US President - complete with nappy and man boobs - to fly over the capital during his visit.

Trump has talked at length about the royal family over the years.

At one point, the queen can be seen gesturing to Trump, although it's unclear what exactly she may have been referring to.

"She is a tremendous woman".

He refused to specify what the advice was, but in an interview with The Daily Telegraph his former adviser, Steve Bannon, reveals that Trump told her to demand far more than she ever expected to get, and to maintain "momentum" because "if it drags out the deal doesn't get done".

His gaffes were slammed on social media, with Joanna Gasiorowska, Al Jazeera senior sports presenter tweeting, 'I can't even watch this...

Following a welcome ceremony full of pomp and circumstance and a Royal Salute, the Trumps will join Her Majesty for tea in the castle. HRH has met with every sitting president since ascending to the throne in 1952, with the exception of Lyndon Johnson.
