As for the royal etiquette, First Lady Melania Trump is expected to follow several rules during her meeting with the Queen. She will be expected to curtsey, or at least bow her head.
Melania is allowed to shake hands with Her Majesty only if she offers it herself. And, of course, it’s a taboo to touch the monarch or hug and kiss her.
What about the other US presidents?
Trump will be the 12th president that the Queen has met over the last 66 years.
When Her Majesty met Barack Obama and his wife Michelle in 2016, they had lunch in the Windsor Castle together with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
George W. Bush and his wife Laura were greeted by a 41-gun salute.
Ronald and Nancy Reagan were treated to horse riding.
Gerald Ford was honored to dance with the Queen during the state dinner at the White House in 1976.
Do you think Donald Trump will also get the honor to dance with Her Majesty during his official visit?
