BREAKING: Donald Trump to visit the UK in July

The White House has announced that US President Donald Trump will be visiting the United Kingdom on Friday 13th July.

His itinerary is not yet clear, and it is unknown whether he will have meetings with any members of The Royal Family.

The trip is not a State Visit, although officials insist that the State Visit announced last year will still go ahead.

Instead, President Trump will be travelling to the UK on a working visit meaning there will be no ceremonial carriage ride and he is unlikely to stay at any of the royal palaces.

British Prime Minister, Theresa May, confirmed at a press conference just a few days after his inauguration that President Trump would be travelling to the country at some point in 2017.

Mr Trump and his wife, Melania, were due to visit the UK in Autumn 2017, however, that never came to fruition.

More than a million people signed a petition urging the Prime Minister to rescind the invitation.

The President is also said to be extremely reluctant to meet Prince Charles because of the pair’s differing views on climate change.

The President, who has previously said that climate change is a myth invented by the Chinese, does not want to take a lecture from The Prince of Wales who is a climate change campaigner, according to The Sunday Times.

Speaking to The Times, a source said: “Trump’s people are worried about an awkward moment, with Prince Charles saying ‘Why don’t you believe in climate change?’

“They do not want the President put in an awkward position where he’s being lectured. They want horses down the Mall, tea with William & Kate.

They want all that pomp and for it to go seamlessly, and one of the risk factors is Charles.”
