Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly refused to meet Trump

Donald Trump visited the Queen after attending Chequers with Theresa May on Friday morning

The president was late for his first meeting with the 92-year-old monarch who was waiting at Windsor Castle for between 12 and 15 minutes in the 80F heat on Friday.

So while the Queen met Trump and his wife Melania, the first two in line to the throne were busy doing other things.

As arrangements were being made for the U.S. president's royal tour, Charles and Will were vocal about their reluctance to meet with Trump, a source toldThe Times.

"This business of Prince Charles and Prince William not being there for the Trump visit was a snub", an unnamed source told the Times. On Monday, Good Morning Britain aired an interview Trump did with host Piers Morgan, in which he recalled the queen saying Brexit was "a very complex problem". Usually it is someone accompany.

The father and son made sure they had other plans organised for the day, with Prince William arranging to play in a charity polo match and Prince Charles calling a meeting at Highgrove for his company, AG Carrick. Prince Harry, 33, was said to have had private engagements. Although the Duke of Edinburgh is already retired, he can still attend meetings if he wants to, and, according to the source, he didn't want to in this instance.

Donald Trump met with the Queen at Windsor Castle over the weekend.

Trump's visit to the United Kingdom was marked by protests across the country he was greeted by large-scale demonstrations in London ahead of his visit.

It's worth bearing in mind that this isn't an official state visit - it's an informal trip that's ended with Trump taking some time off at his golf resort in Scotland. On the contrary, the Obamas even spent the night at Buckingham Palace. At one point on the video you can see him cut her off and she has to step around behind him.

It is understood that Prince Charles was reluctant to meet President Trump due to their diverging views on climate change, for which Charles is a passionate advocate and Trump a long-time cynic.

But for Trump, it wasn't the photographer's fault but Kate's.
