To Great Britain and all British people: I’m sorry for what’s about to happen. The American ambassador to Britain has confirmed that Donald Trump is truly going to visit the UK from July 12th to the 14th. In case you’re wondering or don’t remember, the royal family will be in London on July 9th for the christening of Prince Louis of Cambridge. After that, it seems like the Queen will travel to Windsor Castle, and that’s where she’ll be introduced to Donald Trump. As I said, I’m very sorry.
President Donald Trump looks like he is getting his meeting with Queen Elizabeth after all. After more than a year of back-and-forth about whether he would be heading to the U.K. for an official visit, he is now set to meet the Queen at Windsor Castle in July. The castle was recently the site of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s royal wedding.
U.S. Ambassador Robert Wood Johnson confirmed the upcoming meeting to Sky News on Tuesday. It will not be a full-blown state visit, complete with the pomp and ceremony of a Buckingham Palace meeting and military welcome. Rather, Trump will be in the U.K. for a working visit July 12-14 and is set to see the Queen on July 13. It is the first time Trump has been in the country since his 2016 election.
