The US president, 72, made the boast to Fox News’ talk show host Laura Ingraham, while he was at the Normandy American cemetery to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings. Mr Trump said: “The meeting with the Queen was incredible. I think I can say I really got to know her because I sat with her many times and we had automatic chemistry.” He described the 93-year-old monarch as a “spectacular woman”.

Princess Anne was born on August 15, 1950, and at the time of her birth, she was second in line to the throne, behind her older brother Prince Charles. Now, she is fourteenth, following the arrival of Prince Louis last year, and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor in May.

The Succession to the Crown Act of 2013, which ensures that a female heir cannot be surpassed in the line to the throne by a younger male heir, only applies to royals born after October 28, 2011.

She holds the title of Princess Royal.

As the daughter of the monarch, Anne was awarded the title of princess at birth. In 1987, the Queen granted her the additional title of the Princess Royal. Princess Charlotte will most likely eventually hold the title, after Prince William becomes King, but it is not automatic.

As royal writer Duncan Larcombe told Town & Country earlier this year, "It is a title that remains for life, so Princess Charlotte will have to wait at least until the death of the current Princess Royal."

Princess Anne is currently married to Sir Timothy Laurence.

According to the royal family's website, "the Princess also competed in multiple European Three-Day Event Championships, winning a gold medal in the 1971 individual discipline and silver in both the individual and team disciplines in 1975." Of her love of horses, Anne's father once colorfully said, "If it doesn't fart or eat hay, she isn't interested."

She once foiled a kidnapping plot.

In 1974, a mentally ill 26-year-old named Ian Ball tried to kidnap the princess for a ransom of £2 million pounds; however, Anne and her no-nonsense attitude (and her personal security, of course) were not to be messed with.

"It was all so infuriating; I kept saying I didn't want to get out of the car, and I was not going to get out of the car," she said, according to the BBC. "I nearly lost my temper with him, but I knew that if I did, I should hit him and he would shoot me."

Ball was eventually subdued by police. Then-Prime Minister Harold Wilson praised Anne in government papers, saying she behaved with "quite extraordinary courage and presence of mind," in the situation.
