When worlds collide. Queen Elizabeth II welcomed U.S. President Donald Trump and his wife, Melania Trump, to Buckingham Palace during the pairâ€™s three-day State Visit to the United Kingdom.
Donald, 72, and Melania, 49, flew to the palace via the Marine One helicopter and were greeted by Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, Duchess of Cornwall. The foursome then made their way up the West Terrace Steps where the queen, 93, met the president and the first lady. Her Majesty the Queen wore a mint green Stewart Parvin coat, a matching hat and the famous Cambridge Emerald Brooch. Melania, meanwhile, rocked a custom white dress with a navy belt from Dolce & Gabbana, and a matching hat designed by HervÃ© Pierre. Camilla, 71, for her part, stunned in an all-white ensemble.
After everyone got acquainted, the group listened as the U.S. and the U.K. national anthems were played by the Band of the Grenadier Guards. Charles, 70, and the Apprentice alum then inspected the Guard of Honor, which was formed by the Nijmegen Companyâ€™s soldiers, while gun salutes were fired nearby.
Potus and Her Majesty then sat down for lunch and proceeded to go on a tour of the royal collection of artifacts pertaining to the United States. The duo were joined on the tour by Prince Harry, Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner. The president and the first lady eventually made their way to Westminster Abbey for a wreath-laying ceremony at the tomb of the Unknown Warrior and tour, followed by afternoon tea at Clarence House with Charles and Camilla.
The Trumpsâ€™ first day in the U.K. will conclude with a state banquet at Buckingham Palace, which is set to feature hundreds of guests, including Harry, 34, Prince William and Duchess Kate. Harryâ€™s wife, Duchess Meghan, will not be at the event because she is currently on maternity leave after giving birth to son Archie on May 6.
The pairâ€™s visit to the United Kingdom comes nearly two years after Donald traveled across the pond to have tea with Queen Elizabeth in a less-formal meeting. President Trump is the third U.S. president to be invited to the U.K.: George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States, went on a State Visit in 2003, and his successor, Barack Obama, attended in 2011.

Where Soleil Moon Frye Stands With Charlie Sheen After Exposing Sexual Past

It’s all good. Soleil Moon Frye revealed where she stands with Charlie Sheen after she detailed their sexual past in her Hulu documentary, Kid 90, earlier this year.
“I have not spoken to him since [it came out],” Frye, 44, exclusively told Us Weekly while promoting Heluva Good!’s Best FriendsDIP Line with Melissa Joan Hart. “I have to say, he’s always been very sweet to me throughout the years. I’m sure at some point we will have a catch-up.”
The Punky Brewster star, who revealed during the March documentary that she had her “first consensual sexual experience” with Sheen when she was a teenager, noted that she is happy with the way the project turned out.

What I found through the videos and the diaries and really realizing that through this experience of my story [is] all of our stories are so important,” she said. “What has been so incredible is the way in which people have shared their stories now. And that connective tissue that connects us all. And so, it’s been amazing, and I think one of the hardest things was just continuing to peel back the onion and really to discover my own truth.”
The Proud Family alum added: “It changed so many aspects of my life, because once you open Pandora’s box, you can’t really put those things back. So how do they help you move forward in life?”
During Kid 90, Frye shared a journal entry dated December 18, 1994, following her sexual experience with the Spin City alum, now 55.
“It’s been the most strange and incredible day ever,” she recalled in the entry, calling Sheen her “Mr. Big,” in reference to Carrie Bradshaw’s love interest on Sex and the City. “He’s somebody I’ve had a crush on for years. He’s a person that intrigues me and excites me.”
Frye was 18 when she slept with Sheen, who was 29 at the time. The actress went on to describe her relationship with the Two and a Half Men alum, calling him a “kind and loving” person with whom she’s maintained a friendship with for years.
Sheen, for his part, told Us exclusively in March via his longtime publicist, Jeff Ballard, that while he had yet to watch the documentary it was “on my list to watch and very near the top.”
The Anger Management alum called Frye a “good egg,” telling Us, “I wish Soleil well in this resurgence of hers.”
In addition to the success of her documentary, Frye recently reprised her role as Punky Brewster for Peacock’s revival of the hit ‘80s comedy. She also teamed up with longtime friend Hart, 45, to help launch Heluva Good!’s Best FriendsDIP Line earlier this month.
“It’s awesome because dips are great for any time, whether you’re watching a baseball game, you’re hanging out with a friend on the patio, you get the kids together, it’s always great, just dip it in whatever you want, french fries, pretzels,” the Sabrina the Teenage Witch star, who met Frye while playing the teenage witch in the ‘90s, told Us.
Frye added: “We have a lot of kids between us so it’s delicious and super easy. We love doing barbecues. And I feel like we’re so all about just the family time together and so it fits in perfectly with that.”

David Archuleta Opens Up About His Sexuality in Emotional Message: ‘God Made Me How I Am For a Purpose’
The 30-year-old singer, who is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, revealed that he came out as gay to his family in 2014, but that he also “had similar feelings for both genders so maybe a spectrum of bisexual.” He also learned that he doesn’t “have too much sexual desires…
The 30-year-old singer, who is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, revealed that he came out as gay to his family in 2014, but that he also “had similar feelings for both genders so maybe a spectrum of bisexual.” He also learned that he doesn’t “have too much sexual desires and urges as most people,” which works for him since he’s saving himself for marriage.”I just invite you to please consider making room to be more understanding and compassionate to those who are LGBTQIA+, and those who are a part of that community and trying to find that balance with their faith which also is a huge part of their identity like myself,” the Utah native wrote.He added, “I think we can do better as people of faith and Christians, including Latter-day Saints, to listen more to the wrestle between being LGBTQIA+ and a person of faith… I don’t think it should come down to feeling you have to accept one or the other. For me to find peace the reality has been to accept both are real things I experience and make who I am… You can be part of the LGBTQIA+ community and still believe in God and His gospel plan.”Archuleta, who placed second in the 2007 season of Idol at 16, scored a massive Billboard hit with his single “Crush,” which peaked at No. 2 in the Billboard Hot 100. His latest album, Therapy Sessions, was released 2020. The singer has been open about his Mormon beliefs over the years, and he spent time as a missionary in Chile following his run on Idol.”I’ve tried for almost 20 years to try and change myself until I realized God made me how I am for a purpose. And instead of hating what I have considered wrong I need to see why God loved me for who I am and that it’s not just sexuality. So many other traits of who I am come from how I’ve been created,” he wrote.See Archuleta’s full Instagram post here.
