Fame, Fortune, Family Drama: Trump and Queen Elizabeth Have More in Common Than You Think
It might seem like the most bizarre encounter in the world when The Donald meets Her Royal Highness but think again. They could just discover how much they have in common.
The two most famous people in the world meet for the first time next week. Queen Elizabeth II has invited President Trump to Windsor Castle on July 13.
The prospect of this encounter has caused much dismay in Britain, where Trump is widely reviled. There are many protests planned during the visit. The authorities have even approved a request to fly over London a blimp fashioned in the form of a bleating infant Trump in diapers.
Many Brits thought it was just asking too much of the monarch meet Trump personally. But in the end diplomatic priorities overrode fears that these two heads of state were just too far apart in manners and style.
The Queen, it was felt, had to grit her teeth and do the polite thing. After all, during 66 years on the throne she has – by conservative estimates – personally met more than one million people. That includes handshakes and a few words exchanged, but it’s pretty staggering.
However, the idea that these two live on different planets is mistaken. They have far more in common than most people realize.
This becomes clear when you start to think about how the conversation between them could go.
LOCATION: The Queen’s private audience room, Windsor Castle. The Queen stands beside a small table that is set for tea—tea for two. In the background a private secretary hovers discreetly. The door opens, a flunkey announces: the President of the United States, the Right Honorable Donald Trump.
TRUMP, hand extended: “Majesty. Have to tell ya, this is a helluva set!”
THE QUEEN, puzzled: Set?
“This place. Nobody ever built me a set like this. Not yet. We’ll see what happens. Watched the show. Big fan. Big. The production values were terrific.”
(Tight smile) Please sit. The show?
“The wedding. Incredible. Incredible ratings, bigger than Roseanne. Incredible.”
