The purpose of this essay is to outline the relatively recent history of official meetings between the British Crown and the United States Presidency from the end of the First World War to the present day. This is done in the belief that the analysis of public activity could contribute to provide some elements of reflection also on the state of health of the relationship between the two sides of the Atlantic. In addition to the general historical reconstruction of the visits, both in America and in Great Britain, a specific focus is provided to the period of the last two presidencies, Obama and Trump, particularly full of travels and meetings. During the two terms of Barack Obama, the indisputable good relations between the presidential couple and Queen Elizabeth II have helped to alleviate some difficult moments in the usual Anglo-American special relationship. Conversely, the hallmark of Donald Trump’s visits is undoubtedly represented by the massive popular protests against the President and the attempt to politicize those meetings.

Abstract

The purpose of this essay is to outline the relatively recent history of official meetings between the British Crown and the United States Presidency from the end of the First World War to the present day. This is done in the belief that the analysis of public activity could contribute to provide some elements of reflection also on the state of health of the relationship between the two sides of the Atlantic. In addition to the general historical reconstruction of the visits, both in America and in Great Britain, a specific focus is provided to the period of the last two presidencies, Obama and Trump, particularly full of travels and meetings. During the two terms of Barack Obama, the indisputable good relations between the presidential couple and Queen Elizabeth II have helped to alleviate some difficult moments in the usual Anglo-American special relationship. Conversely, the hallmark of Donald Trump’s visits is undoubtedly represented by the massive popular protests against the President and the attempt to politicize those meetings.
