Donald Trump mingles with The Queen after sharing cuppa with Prince Charles

Donald Trump and wife Melanie have been snapped mingling with The Queen after sharing a cuppa with Prince Charles and Camilla.

The US President earlier met the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall at Clarence House for tea ahead of a NATO summit this evening.

However, they had to cut short the engagement and dashed to Buckingham Palace to see Her Majesty.

Trump also got to meet a giggling Kate Middleton at the gathering.

Anti-NATO protesters gathered on the Mall and helicopters hovered above as the President's motorcade – featuring his vehicle The Beast – arrived.

Hundreds of NHS workers joined protests against the President from Trafalgar Square to Buckingham Palace, bearing signs that read “Trump, hands off our NHS” and “cut war, not health care”.

Charles and Camilla greeted the Trumps at 6pm before welcoming them inside.

They posed for pictures before moving to private quarters for tea.

Charles earlier today met other NATO leaders, including Canada's PM Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Norway Erna Solberg and Italy's PM, Giuseppe Conte.

The President earlier vowed he wasn't interested in the health service, saying he wouldn't take it even on a "silver platter".

But protesters still turned up in force to show they didn’t believe his – or Boris Johnson’s claims the NHS would be protected.
