An orange-hued 20-foot tall "Trump Baby", clutching a mobile phone and sporting a giant diaper, took flight over Britain's Houses of Parliament for two hours on Friday morning, kicking off a day of widespread protests against the U.S. leader's controversial visit to the UK.
Mr Trump moved slightly closer, but then stood still in front of the Queen, meaning the monarch had to navigate her way around him so they could walk side by side.
Melania Trump wore a pale pink fitted Dior suit for the occasion.
His first questionable move took place within the first few seconds of meeting the Queen, when Trump walked up to greet her. But the Trumps kept the Queen waiting on the dais in the Quadrangle during the ceremonial welcome.
The Queen appeared to briefly herd the President, gesturing for him to walk, the President mindful of royal protocol. "The feeling inside the palace is that Trump's disrespectful mistakes with the queen were awful and inexcusable".
In the photos, Queen Elizabeth II, POTUS, and Melania Trump were all smiles.

However, Mr Trump failed to pick up on the signal and instead came to an abrupt stop in front of her.
"You could see that suppressed dominance where he felt that he had to still motion to her".
Among the melee was Annie Jeffs, a 54-year-old artist from Somerset, with a handmade Trump puppet in tow. "She is just an incredible woman". "While the queen expected her guests to be late, she was certain to be early for his arrival".
