Donald Trump's state visit to the U.K. kicked off on Monday with a visit to Buckingham Palace and a state banquet, with all of his adult children in attendance. As Queen Elizabeth gave the Trumps a tour of the Palace (and was reportedly subjected to the president's gift-giving gaffe), his eldest daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, were photographed looking out of a window — and the resulting photo almost instantly became a meme.
As unremarkable as a photo of Ivanka and Jared looking out of a window might seem, for plenty of Twitter users, it looked like something out of a horror movie, and drew comparisons to everything from The Shining to The Others.
A cinematic scene, indeed.
The Trumps are in the U.K. through Wednesday, and are spending their state visit meeting with members of the royal family (sans Meghan Markle) as well as Prime Minister Theresa May.
On Tuesday, thousands of protestors took to the street to decry the president's visit, flying a giant blimp in the likeness of Trump as an orange baby.
On Tuesday evening, the president and first lady are expected to host a return dinner before heading back to the U.S. the next day.
