THE DON TO MEET QUEEN: US Ambassador confirms President Trump will meet Queen

DONALD Trump will meet the Queen when he arrives for his long-awaited visit next month according to the US ambassador to the UK.

The controversial President is due to arrive in Britain for a working visit on Friday 13 July – his first to the country since being elected in 2016.

Mr Trump was due to arrive in the UK in February to open the new U.S. Embassy but that trip was cancelled.

Robert Wood Johnson said that while plans have not yet been finalised, they will involve the president meeting Her Majesty.

When asked if Trump would meet the Queen The U.S. ambassador said: “Yes, yes, I mean he has to see the head of state. Putting his foot on British soil, it’s job one, it’s very important, very symbolic.

“Meeting Her Majesty is the most important thing, because she’s the head of state, and from then on, it’ll be what the president wants to do.”

It is thought the president will meet the Queen at Windsor Castle, as it will be closed to the public on 13 July.

He is also expected to have talks with Theresa May during his time in the UK.

London’s failing Mayor Sadiq Khan said Mr Trump should expect peaceful protests in the British capital.
