Perhaps you’ve heard of Ping-Pong Diplomacy? Well, what about “Make the Queen to Watch you Golf Diplomacy”?
The 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Tump, wants to meet with the Queen. OK. Good. No surprises there. It’s the manner in which he wants to meet with her that’s odd/totally Drumpf.
According to the Telegraph, Trump wants to golf at Balmoral Castle, the Queen’s private estate this summer…while the Queen watches him!
“Discussions are underway about the president playing a round of golf on the private nine-hole course at Balmoral while the Queen looks on.”
Apparently, the inspiration for this absurdity is Ronald Reagan’s 1982 visit with the queen that included the Gipper on on horseback. The only way the Queen should agree to watch Trump tee it up is if he mounts a steed ala Reagan below.
The royal family owns Balmoral Castle in Royal Deeside, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, and a private nine-hole course is attached.
Golf Digest’s Joel Beall writes, “It is the Queen’s private home, and as the Telegraph notes, an invitation would illustrate how far England is willing to go to build a special relationship with the new administration.”
Trump best be on his best behaviour. This was the Queen recollecting – unintentionally – her experience with the Chinese government…
The idea of the Queen of England being reduced to a spectator for widely documented golf cheat, Donald Trump, is questionable, even to the most anti-monarchical among us.
