In pictures: Queen's meetings with past US presidents

A selection of photographs from the monarch's meetings with past presidents.

President Donald Trump's visit to the Queen during his trip to the UK marks the latest in a long history of meetings between the British monarch and US heads of state.

In her 66-year reign, Queen Elizabeth II has met nearly all of the 12 presidents in office during that time, with the exception of Lyndon B Johnson and Mr Trump.

Here is a selection of photographs from the monarch's meetings with past presidents.
