"I have such a great relationship, and we were laughing and having fun. And her people said she hasn't had so much fun in 25 years. Then I got criticized for it because they said we were having too much fun," Trump said in an interview with "Fox & Friends."

The president kicked off his first state visit to the country earlier this month with the 93-year-old monarch, who has hosted 12 sitting U.S. presidents over the course of her reign. 

Trump and the queen reaffirmed the importance of the U.S.-U.K. relationship during an elaborate state banquet, which was attended by administration officials, members of the British royal family and Trump's family. 

"On behalf of all Americans I offer a toast to the eternal friendship of our people, the vitality of our nations and to the long cherished and truly remarkable reign of her majesty, the queen," Trump said in his toast during the event. 

Despite widespread protests during his trip, the president appeared to enjoy the pageantry of the visit, especially when it came to spending time with the royal family. 

"London part of trip is going really well," he tweeted during the visit. "The Queen and the entire Royal family have been fantastic. The relationship with the United Kingdom is very strong. Tremendous crowds of well wishers and people that love our Country."

"Haven’t seen any protests yet, but I’m sure the Fake News will be working hard to find them," he added. "Great love all around. Also, big Trade Deal is possible once U.K. gets rid of the shackles. Already starting to talk!"
