(VIDEO) Donald Trump broke the royal protocol three times during his meeting with the Queen

Donald Trump has sparked outrage for his 'disrespectful' failure to follow royal protocol when he met the Queen on Friday..

Things didn't get off to a good start when the president left the 92-year-old monarch waiting for between 12 and 15 minutes in the 80 degree F heat when he was late for their meeting on Friday.

The Queen, who looked unamused by the delay, was even seen checking her watch as she waited for Trump and Melania. 

And when the first couple's black Range Rover did finally pull up to Windsor Castle, Trump almost immediately breached rigid royal protocol.

  • The American leader then broke with tradition by refusing to bow to the Queen, instead greeting her with a hearty handshake
  • First lady Melania also proffered a handshake over a curtsy
  • The president's biggest faux pas came when he was invited to join the Queen to inspect the guard of honor
  • Trump turned his back on the monarch and marched ahead of her as they walked past the troops - in what was a serious breach of protocol
