As for the Queen, Trump considered her to be "an incredible woman" and shared what it was like sitting next to her at the state banquet a few months ago.

I sat next to her, and she was smiling and having a good time and I was smiling and having a good time. It was really a great evening, and I was told that she enjoyed it and I can tell you I enjoyed it.

The president went on to add:

(Queen Elizabeth) is a great woman. I say that very seldom. I don't say that often, I have to say, about anybody. But she is really very outstanding, and Prince Charles so good, so good. He loves the environment. We had a great time.

Not always a fan

Donald Trump's recent positive statement about the royal family does come as a surprise considering he hasn't always been this kind when talking about them. In 2012, for example, he defended the photographers that took intrusive photos of Kate Middleton tweeting that the Duchess "only has herself to blame."

It's possible that Trump is coming around on the family now and may actually be a legit fan of the royals. Considering these recent words, POTUS should be commended for having such nice things to say about the monarchy.
