Donald Trump and Melania arrive in Florida
Mr Trump has just been voted out of the White House, with US President Joe Biden being inaugurated last week. According to royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams, Her Majesty will likely be “personally relieved” to not be dealing with Mr Trump any longer, although publicly she must remain politically impartial. He argued this is because of his “notorious unpredictability and the atrocious storming of the Capitol by a mob incited by him”.
Mr Fitzwilliams told Express.co.uk that the Queen will also “appreciate the importance of America having a President with so much experience”.
However, there is another reason why the monarch, 94, may be glad to see the back of Mr Trump.
The former President has made numerous faux pas when meeting the Queen on several different occasions.
During his visit to the UK in 2018, Mr Trump did one thing that royal historian Ian Beck branded a “mortal insult” to Her Majesty.

Mr Trump turned his back on the Queen and walked in front of her while inspecting the guard at Windsor Castle.
Mr Beck wrote on Twitter: “Trump has also turned his back on the Queen.
“I have always believed this to be a mortal insult to a monarch.”
Mr Trump also breached protocol by revealing what the Queen told him about Brexit during an interview with Good Morning Britain.
It is very rare for heads of state to discuss their private conversations with the Queen and it is against royal etiquette, something which Mr Trump actually acknowledged in the interview.

Mr Trump told TV host Piers Morgan that the royal told him Brexit is “complex”.
He said: “She said it’s a very ‒ and she’s right ‒ it’s a very complex problem.
“I think nobody had any idea how complex this 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’.”
Mr Trump was pushed for more detail on what the Queen said, but he declined to say.

He said: “Well, I can’t talk, you know I’ve heard very strongly from a lot of people, you just don’t talk about that conversation with the Queen, right? You don’t wanna do that.
“Let me tell you what I can talk about. 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.”
The following year Mr Trump came to the UK for a state visit and broke royal protocol again.
The former US President shook hands with the Queen and Prince Charles instead of bowing, as is tradition.
He and his wife Melania repeated this mistake when they met the royals for the NATO meeting in London in 2020.

After having a state banquet with the Queen during his state visit, Mr Trump boasted of how much fun he had with the monarch.
He even claimed he was told it was the best fun she had had in a quarter of a century.
He told Fox News: “I have such a great relationship, and we were laughing and having fun.
“And her people said she hasn’t had so much fun in 25 years.
“Then I got criticised for it because they said we were having too much fun.”

All these moments may well have played into the alleged relief the Queen felt at the election of Mr Biden.
Mr Fitzwilliams told Express.co.uk: “Given Donald Trump’s notorious unpredictability and the atrocious storming of the Capitol by a mob incited by him, she is likely to be personally relieved by Biden’s election victory and also by the subsequent, dignified swearing-in at the beautifully choreographed ceremony.”
He added: “As the world’s most experienced head of state, she will undoubtedly appreciate the importance of America having a President with so much experience, especially during the unprecedented crisis of the Covid-19 pandemic.”
