Awesome! I'm glad that the UK wants to continue the special relationship they share with the US.

On a shallow fashion note, I can't wait to see what Melania Trump wears for the State Dinner.

Had to smile at the various remarks regarding the Queen's expectant invite to The Donald!

When it happens (and assuming no hic-ups for The D. in claiming the US throne), it will be the US President who is invited not the money spinner owner of T. Towers.

By now I'm sure the Queen has a Masters in segregating the official from the non official!

Jury still out on Philip though!!

Whether it will work or not remains to be seen, but it confirms my earlier point on the British government understanding the strategic value of the Queen in post-Brexit foreign relations.

When it comes to global politics and learning the lessons of diplomacy between countries, who better to advise and guide a brand new President of the United States with absolutely zero experience in any kind of politics outside of business deals than the Grand Mistress of Diplomacy with over 60 years of experience.

If there is one thing I hope that Donald Trump realizes is that it'd be wise to heed the words of HM, The Queen.

She would be a wonderful advisor and guide. But he thinks he knows everything, so he won't listen.

I believe the guy didn't expect and certainly didn't want to become the next American Precident!
It was all about proving a point; but when you do that on a global stage, your mess, you pick it up!
Unlike the then child Elizabeth, who had no say in her future (other than following in the footsteps of her Uncle David), but who took on the role with all it's pros and cons, The D could do a lot worse than looking for diplomancy tips from QE2!

I think that they played on the same rugby team so they might know each other pretty well. Don't know if they have kept in touch over the years.

There have been a lot of posts about this over the years. Maybe try a google search for "the royal forums" +redmayne +william and see what pops up.
Google search is much more selective than the Forums search is. More about that somewhere in the members forums.
Eddie often tosses an acceptable mention about the good old days out there when asked. When pressed for insider stuff, he deflects the questions really well. He has not leveraged the relationship to play the press, so good on him! IMO
