Donald Trump met the Queen on his divisive visit to the UK last week but Prince Charles and Prince William were nowhere to be seen.

The first and second in line to the throne were reported to have ‘refused to attend’ a meeting with the President after he met Her Majesty at Windsor Castle on Friday.

However, a spokesperson from the Palace denied the pair were snubbing Trump – insisting they were never part of any meeting plans.

The spokesperson said: ’In line with standard practice for guest of government visits the President was received by The Queen as Head of State.

‘The arrangements were mutually agreed between the Palace and the UK and US governments.

‘There was never a suggestion that other members of the Royal Family would take part.’

Both Prince Charles and Prince William had good relationships with the previous US President, Barack Obama.

William, Kate Middleton and Prince Harry hosted the Obamas for a private dinner in 2016, while William and Kate also visited the Oval Office in 2014.

Trump may not be too concerned with not meeting other members of the Royal Family, describing the Queen as a ‘beautiful person – inside and out’ after meeting her.

He added: ‘She is so sharp, so wise, so beautiful. Up close, you see she’s so beautiful. She’s a very special person.’
