Odd moments between US President Donald Trump and Queen Elizabeth has caught the attention of media both inside and outside the United States.

For one thing, the 92-year-old had to spend 15 minutes in the summer heat for the American commander-in-chief to show up on stage at the Windsor Castle on Friday.

Trump’s manners have been indicated as awkward, including during a stroll that he took like he was “wandering up and down a golf course," according royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams.

The queen, who was in coat, hat and gloves, was left waiting, which made her look at her watch twice.

The meeting came right after Trump criticized the UK over how it has been handling London’s exit from the EU.

The US president’s stay in the UK has been met with British crowds protesting his policies.

“Our rights to want a world that is not divided by misogyny, racism, and hate,” said Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the Labour Party, addressing some protesters.

Trump was actually scheduled to continue his visit to the UK on Saturday with a trip to his Turnberry golf resort in southwestern Scotland.

His visit to the UK has been described as a test of what the two countries’ insist is a “Special Relationship,” all while he has suggested that the UK should take a “tougher stand” in dealing with Brexit.
