BREAKING NEWS: The Queen invites Donald Trump to the UK for a State Visit

Donald Trump has accepted an invitation from Her Majesty The Queen to visit the UK later this year for a State Visit.

British Prime Minister, Theresa May, confirmed at a press conference that President Trump and the First Lady, Melania Trump, will be travelling to the country later this year.

It is likely that the President will stay at Windsor Castle, partly due to major refurbishment works that will be taking place at Buckingham Palace.

This news comes a few days after it emerged the President-Elect told British Prime Minister, Theresa May, that his late mother was a ‘big fan of The Queen’.

In a ten-minute phone conversation, the President-Elect told the Prime Minister that his mother, Mary Trump, was a ‘big fan’ of the Queen.

Donald Trump also reportedly asked Mrs May to pass on his best regards to The Queen when she next visit’s Buckingham Palace.

Out of the 12 presidents in Her Majesty’s reign, only five were ever invited for a State Visit. Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. President Trump will now become number six.

The United States and the United Kingdom have long had the “Special Relationship” that Prime Minister Winston Churchill mentioned in 1946.
