Donald & Melania Trump Attend Queen Elizabeth's Palace Reception — Without the Trump Kids, Who Came Last Time
Before Tuesday's reception, the president and the first lady had tea with Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall
They were last at the palace in June, for the president’s state visit to the U.K., when he was joined by all of his adult children: Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, Ivanka Trump (a senior White House aide) and Tiffany Trump.
But unlike that outing, none of his kids made the trip this week, where the president’s schedule is largely full of meetings with other leaders of the decades-old alliance between the U.S., Canada and much of Europe.
The Trumps were the last to be greeted by the Queen, who warmly welcomed them, according to reporters at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday.
President Trump sat next to Prince Charles, who hosted the Trumps for tea earlier in the day, during a photo-op with the rest of the NATO leaders in attendance.
The Trumps will next head to another reception Tuesday night hosted by Boris Johnson, the U.K.’s prime minister. They are due back in the U.S. by Thursday.
This week’s visit, as with previous Trump trips across the Atlantic, has been met with protests.
