On Saturday, the first lady “smiled warmly for a photocall in Toronto, as the Prince made polite small talk in front of the cameras,” according to the Telegraph.

The pair then sat on cream-colored leather seats with the respective flags of each of their countries behind them.

“Thank you. Thank you so much for coming,” Trump said, before launching into a conversation with the prince about the games.
