Trump, Melania Show Their Respect During National Anthem — Then People Noted What the Queen Was Doing

The United States is one of Britain’s closest allies, joining forces in multiple wars during the 20th century. But it wasn’t always that way.

The U.S. wouldn’t even be a country without the bloody war it fought with England in the 1700s. Some mentioned this when American actress, Meghan Markle, married Prince Harry in May:

The nations’ tumultuous past also received attention on Friday when President Donald Trump and his wife Melania joined Queen Elizabeth II as the honor guard played the U.S. national anthem.

While Trump and his wife stood with their hands held over their hearts, the Queen seemed less enthusiastic.

Watch:

Some on Twitter seemed to notice the Queen, who didn’t have her hand over her heart, wasn’t following her U.S. counterparts’ lead:

During their trip, Trump and his wife seemed to get along well with the Queen, as well as Prime Minister Theresa May.

Trump, Melania, May, and her husband Philip met for dinner at Bleinheim Palace where Melania donned a beautiful, yellow, floor-length dress:

“Wonderful dinner at Blenheim Palace last night with Mr. Philip May & @theresa_may. Thank you for your gracious hospitality,” Melania tweeted.

    Don’t quite get why anyone would expect the Queen to put her hand over her heart…that is like swearing allegiance…..so would you put your hand over your heart if the Queen visited, and they played her national anthem? I think not.

    Não têm razão por que a rainha teria que fazer qualquer gestos em relação ao hino dos EUA.
    Os anfitriões,os Trumps esses sim, teriam que fazer uma saudação ao hino da sua nação.

    Oh, please. The queen did not put her hand over her heart (i.e. a form of salute) for the same reason the Trumps did not bow to the queen. They’re not British. Queen’s not American. Non-story.
