Trump’s surreal royal visit turns from pomp to politics


London : It was the moment when a famous, powerful dynasty, built on inherited wealth, hounded by tabloids and with a weakness for palatial, gold-encrusted residences met … the British royal family.
The Trump clan descended on Buckingham Palace on Monday, and Queen Elizabeth II seemed to cast a calming spell on the President, who put his smash mouth style on hold for a few hours while in her presence.
The opening of Trump’s often surreal state visit came as political tornadoes rage around the governments in Washington and London, and the President reigns supreme as the world’s most divisive figure.
