The monarch, 94, chattted with the Republican leader over the phone earlier on Tuesday from Windsor Castle, where she has been staying since the beginning of the lockdown. The Royal Family confirmed the phone call on Twitter. They 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 was the latest in a series of conversations the Queen has had with world leaders.
They said: “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 phone call was nothing short of extraordinary as the Queen does not usually call the US President in the lead up to July 4 celebrations.
Mr Trump’s conversation with the Head of the Royal Family came amid scathing reports of the his alleged conversations with female leaders.

Sources told CNN’s Carl Bernstein that Mr Trump called German Chancellor Angela Merkel “stupid” and told the then-UK Prime Minister Theresa May she was “weak” and “lacked courage”.
The information is said to have been leaked to the press by members of Mr Trump’s administration.
The sources said of Mr Trump’s phone chats with Ms Merkel: “Some of the things he said to Angela Merkel are just unbelievable.

“He called her ‘stupid’ and accused her of being in the pocket of the Russians.”
President Trump, who is gearing up for the November 3 election, also frequently went after the German Chancellor over her country’s failure to meet thr two percent commitment agreed with NATO on its defence spending, the sources said.
One source told Mr Bernstein: “It’s just a small circle of people who are involved and the reason, the main reason, is that they are indeed problematic.”

And his chats with Mrs May were far from different, the sources claimed.
They said Mr Trump had adopted a “humiliating and bullying” tone when he discussed an array of topics with the former British Prime Minister.
They added: “He’d get agitated about something with Theresa May, then he’d get nasty with her on the phone call.
“It’s the same interaction in every setting – coronavirus or Brexit – with just no filter applied.”

Mr Bernstein said the White House sources and intelligence officials he spoke to were not optimistic about Mr Trump’s leadership.
They claimed the President “posed a danger to the national security of the United States”.
However, a source who was part of Mrs May’s calls with the American President said the claims were “patently untrue”.
The source told Sky News: “The conversations weren’t always easy because she would disagree with him, but the characterisation of his attitude to her or her response to him is just nonsense, it’s patently untrue.”

The explosive claims come just four months before American voters will head to the poll as President Trump is expected to face off with former Democrat Vice-President Joe Biden.
Last week Mr Trump’s reputation was again dragged through the mud, this time by his former national security adviser, John Bolton.
Promoting his new book, Mr Bolton gave an interview to Sky News in which he claimed the President “had trouble with women leaders”.
