Earlier in the day, President Donald Trump and the first lady met with Queen Elizabeth II. Both of them strayed from royal protocol.

Royal protocol says men should execute a “neck bow” when meeting the queen and women should do a small curtsy. Both Trump and his first lady opted for a power handshake. There was no bowing from the president.

However, Trump offered words of glowing praise for one of America's strongest allies.

"I give our relationship, in terms of grade, the highest level of special," Trump said of the U.K. on Friday. "Am I allowed to go higher than that? I’m not sure. But it’s the highest level of special. They are very special people; it’s a very special country."
