Queen greets Donald Trump as FOUR of his children come on visit

Heavy-handed: Mr Trump
gives awkward greeting
but Queen is unperturbed

THE royal family had a new rival in town yesterday as Donald Trump brought four of his five children and an entourage of up to 1,000 people on his first state visit to the UK.

The richest president in US history has hired a floor of the Corinthia Hotel — where rooms cost up to £22,000 a night — for Don Jr, 41, Ivanka, 37, Eric, 35, and Tiffany, 25. Youngest son Barron, 13, is still at school.

Ivanka was the first to arrive in Britain and she and husband Jared Kushner were already at Buckingham Palace when Mr Trump flew in. The couple are both senior White House advisers and she is said to have called her dad’s presidency the start of a ‘great American dynasty’.

Mr Trump, who once boasted that he could have slept with Princess Diana, was greeted by Prince Charles after his helicopter landed in the palace’s back garden. First Lady Melania — in a Dolce & Gabbana dress and Hervé Pierre hat — walked with Camilla to meet the Queen.

Photos prompted speculation that the president had given Her Majesty a ‘fist bump’ — but it seems he wrapped his hand around her fingers as they shook hands.

The band of the Grenadier Guards played the Star Spangled Banner before the visitors had lunch.

Senior royals in attendance included Prince Harry but wife Meghan stayed away to care for their new baby Archie.

She was branded ‘nasty’ by Mr Trump at the weekend over comments she made about him in 2016.

As Her Majesty showed Mr Trump items from her collection with US links, he failed to recognise a pewter horse before Melania tactfully reminded him they gave it to her last year. The couple later had afternoon tea at Clarence House with Charles and Camilla.
