THE QUEEN has chatted to US President Donald Trump over the phone ahead of American Independence Day.
The two heads of state spoke just over a year since their last meeting, when Mr Trump flew to the UK in early June 2019 for a state visit.
This type of call is made at the request of the Government but it is not known how long the Queen and the president spoke or what was said.
A Tweet posted on the official royal family account said: "Today, The Queen spoke to President Trump by telephone from Windsor Castle ahead of Independence Day in the United States on the 4th July."
They added: "The telephone call is the latest in a series Her Majesty has held with world leaders in recent months, including President Macron, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
The Queen has held telephone conversations with a series of world leaders during the coronavirus lockdown, including France's President Emmanuel Macron, Australia's Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Justin Trudeau, Canada's Prime Minister."
Mr Trump's conversation with the Queen came ahead of his country's Independence Day celebrations on July 4.
The US leader's three-day state visit began on June 3 last year and he was welcomed to the UK by the Queen during a ceremony at Buckingham Palace.
