Over the last couple of weeks, President Trump and First Lady Melania have made their way around Europe to meet with various leaders and to attend the NATO summit. Last Friday, the first couple landed in the UK. 

President Trump spent two days in England before spending the rest of the weekend in Scotland. While in England, President Trump was able to meet with Prime Minister Theresa May. Later, President Trump and First Lady Melania were able to meet Queen Elizabeth II, the longest reigning monarch in history! 

On Monday, President Trump opened up about some of his private conversations with the Queen, something that, according to TIME, is considered a "breach of protocol." It is extremely rare for a head of state to discuss their private conversations with the Queen. Even though President Trump did not give very much away about the conversation, he did say that they talked about Brexit and the Queen's feelings about it. 

President Trump talked to Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan about his conversation with Queen E regarding Brexit. He said that Queen Elizabeth II called it a "very complex problem."

While the statement did not give too much away about Queen Elizabeth's truthful view about the entire situation, the fact that she talked about it with an opinion at all was interesting considering that the palace has remained completely silent about the issue since the U.K's departure from the European Union.

President Trump went on to say that he was unsure whether or not Queen Elizabeth II liked him. However, he confirmed that he did like the Queen!

Overall, the meeting reportedly went well. While in England, President Trump was advised to stay clear of the main streets in London where thousands of protestors took to the street. 

After they left the UK, President Trump and First Lady Melania headed to Helsinki, Finland, where President Trump was scheduled to meet with President Putin. However, the talk of the town was Melania's unique outfit stepping off of the plane. Everyone is obsessed- check it out!
