During his history-making state visit to the UK, President Trump presented Queen Elizabeth with a luxurious flower brooch from Tiffany and Co. during the traditional exchange of gifts. In response, the Queen presented the President with an abridged first edition of Winston Churchhill's "The Second World War." As was reported in The Hill:

 President Trump and first lady Melania Trump gave Queen Elizabeth II a flower brooch from Tiffany & Co. as part of the customary gift exchange during their state visit to the United Kingdom.

The silver and silk poppy flower brooch was wrapped in a custom White House wood jewelry box, according to the first lady's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham. 

The Trumps gave Prince Philip a personalized Air Force One jacket and a first-edition, signed autobiography by James Doolittle titled: “I Could Never Be So Lucky Again.”

In return, the queen on Monday gave President Trump an abridged first edition of Winston Churchill's "The Second World War" and a three-piece pen set.

Trump, who brought a bust of Churchill back to the Oval Office after it had been removed by Barack Obama, has long admired the famous Second World War leader. 

The cordial meeting between Trump and the Queen comes amidst a backdrop of protests in the streets of London against the President's visit by left-wing demonstrators.
