The Queen’s reaction to seeing images of herself walking next to Donald Trump has been revealed.

Friend of Prince Philip, Gyles Brandreth, claimed that instead of being offended by Trump’s gaffe, she was amused.

Donald Trump was welcomed by Queen Elizabeth to Windsor Castle as the official part of his visit to the UK drew to a close.

The Queen was not offended by the faux pas according to friend of Prince Philip, Gyles Brandreth.

Mr Trump spoke of his admiration for the Queen in an interview with the Sun ahead of the encounter, in which he called her a “tremendous woman”.

However, as the Queen accompanied Mr Trump along the quadrangle where the 1st Battalion Coldstream Guards were waiting, he accidentally broke royal protocol, walking ahead of Her Majesty.

The Queen was forced to walk around him instead.

Royal protocol determines that people must always stand when the King or Queen enter the room, curtsy or bow, and never turn their backs on them.

In an upcoming biography, Elizabeth: An Intimate Portrait, it is revealed that the Queen was not offended by the faux pas and instead found it funny.

An excerpt published by the MailOnline claims: “Far from being offended, she was amused.

“And that night, when the Queen saw herself on television, bobbing about behind him, she laughed out loud.”

Last week, Gyles Brandreth claimed in the same book that during the final year of her life, the Queen battled with a painful cancer which killed her.

Queen Elizabeth officially died on September 8 from "old age", according to her death certificate.

Mr Brandreth wrote: "I had heard that the Queen had a form of myeloma - bone marrow cancer - which would explain her tiredness and weight loss and those ‘mobility issues’ we were often told about.”
