Trump accused of breaking royal protocol

Donald Trump has been accused of breaching royal protocol by publicly disclosing the details of a conversation he had with the Queen.

When asked in an interview with Piers Morgan if he discussed Brexit with the monarch when they met for tea at Windsor Castle Trump said:

"I did. She said it's a very - and she's right - it's a very complex problem, I think nobody had any idea how complex that was going to be... Everyone thought it was going to be 'Oh it's simple, we join or don't join, or let's see what happens.'"

Speaking of the 92-year-old Queen, Trump was quoted as saying: "She is an incredible woman, she is so sharp, she is so beautiful, when I say beautiful - inside and out. That is a beautiful woman."

Asked if Trump felt the queen had liked him, he said: "Well I don't want to speak for her, but I can tell you I liked her. So usually that helps. But I liked her a lot."

"Just very elegant. And very beautiful. It was really something special," Trump said of the meeting. "She is so sharp, so wise, so beautiful. Up close, you see she's so beautiful. She's a very special person."
