Queen Elizabeth II Gifts President Trump a First Edition of Churchill’s World War II Book

Queen Elizabeth II gifted President Trump an abridged first edition of Winston Churchill’s book on World War II during the commander-in-chief’s visit to England.

The 1959 crimson and gold-tooled book titled “The Second World War” by the late UK prime minister was given to Trump along with a three-piece pen set.

The queen gave first lady Melania Trump a “specially commissioned silver box” with a “handcrafted enamel lid” that was designed to match the ceiling of Buckingham Palace’s music room, the network reported, citing the palace.

It is customary for the queen to present heads of state on official visits with gifts.

Trump and the first lady arrivee at Buckingham Palace on Monday for the start of the two-day state visit.

After touching down in Marine One on the palace lawn, the Trumps were welcomed by Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla.

Queen Elizabeth also showed the Trumps the royal gift collection — a room filled with artifacts.
