Cher has criticised US President Donald Trump for his behaviour with the Queen during his visit to the UK.

The singing superstar said she was horrified by footage of their meeting at Windsor Castle last week, in which he walked in front of her while inspecting the guard of honour.

"Everybody hated him. I can only imagine that it's because she has so much dignity, but that he left her standing there, that is inexcusable, that is inexcusable," she said.

During the meeting, Trump inspected one of the Army's longest serving units, the 1st Battalion Coldstream Guards, in their red tunics and bearskins and the Queen gently corrected the choreography of the ceremony when he stopped after striding ahead.

Arriving at a screening of her new film Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, in aid of her animal rights charity Free The Wild, the singer also spoke about the importance of activism and protest after thousands took to the streets in response to Trump's visit to the UK.

"In America we can't figure it out because he [Mr Trump] just seems to steamroll over everybody and he just has this ongoing dialogue that you go 'What is happening?' she said.

"It's important that we try to do as many things as we can because he's in power and we don't give up."
