US President Donald Trump was rescued from an embarrassing situation by his wife Melania, when he failed to recognize a statuette at Buckingham Palace, that he had gifted the Queen last summer, according to a media report.

Trump, who is on a three-day state visit, was shown a pewter horse that he gave as a gift to Queen Elizabeth Il, when they met in July 2018, and was asked whether he recognized it. Looking a bit puzzled, he replied "no", the Independent newspaper reported.

First Lady Melania quickly came to his rescue, saying: "I think we gave that to the Queen."

He had given the thoroughbred statue in polished pewter on his visit to Windsor.

It happened as the 93-year-old Queen was showing the President and his wife around an exhibition at the palace picture gallery of American artefacts on Monday.

Among the items she showed them, were a display of golfing memorabilia and a draft copy of a telegram from George VI to US General Dwight Eisenhower after the D-Day invasion of France.

Earlier, Trump was pictured giving the Queen an unusual handshake as they met at the start of his state visit.

Queen gifted President Trump a first edition of Winston Churchill's "The Second World War", and a three-piece Duofold pen set using an obsidian design that was made exclusively for the monarch.
