If anybody in the Resistance needs more clarification, this was in the Washington Post on Thursday:

In a meeting like this, etiquette requires Trump to wait until the queen offers her hand, then to shake it politely and move on. The same applies to Mrs. Trump.

Neither the president nor the first lady would be likely to bow or to curtsy when they meet the queen, said Hugo Vickers, an author who has long chronicled the British royals.

So the answer to the Telegraph’s question is “no.”

We hope all those answers help settle any debate.
