Apart from a few hiccups, the Trumps' meeting with Queen Elizabeth went well. But that was until people took a closer look at the special brooch the monarch chose to wear.

The floral piece turned out to be a gift given to her by former US president Barack Obama and wife Michelle.

The former First Couple presented her Majesty with this gift during their state visit in 2011. It's a 1950 vintage piece and is in the shape of a green flower.

While the Queen did not wear this particular brooch upon actually meeting President Trump and Melania, she wore it the day before, when Trump arrived in England.

She chose to wear the American State Visit Brooch when she received the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar at Windsor castle on Thursday, July 12.

Not everyone was thrilled about this meeting though. There were thousands of protesters who marched a few miles from the Windsor Castle at a protest called 'The Stop Trump March.'
