President Trump’s working visit to England was the most anticipated visit of any American President in recent times. However, his visit did not get the positive reactions.

For starters, the meeting was a lot shorter than the one Her Majesty had with Barack Obama. It is quite possible the Queen had other matters to attend to.

Also, President Trump and his wife Melania did not stay over at Buckingham Palace like Barack and Michelle Obama did. Did they not get an invitation to or was it extended and they refused?

In an exclusive interview on "Good Morning Britain" with host Piers Morgan, President Trump spoke a bit about his meeting with Her Majesty. And it seems like the president was quite taken by the Queen.

She is an incredible woman, she is so sharp, she is so beautiful, when I say beautiful – inside and out.

President Trump also hinted about talks he had with the Queen on the issue of BREXIT and the difficulties being faced by the administration in closing that chapter. The full interview was broadcast by 6AM on ITV.

However, not everyone was pleased with President Trumps' appearance with the Queen and for good reason. His disregard for royal courtesies was on full display.

Some commentators argue that the president is not obligated to observe courtesies in Britain, but others disagree. For one thing, he is being called out for constantly walking ahead of Her Majesty, an action which is considered disrespectful.

There is no telling yet what the Queen thinks of the visit, but we expect she may drop hints in the coming months.
