Donald Trump will meet the Queen when he visits the UK in July – and it represents a humiliating slapdown for Theresa May.
Trump is due in Britain for a working visit in mid-July, after months of speculation over when the U.S. president would visit what traditionally has been the United States’ closest ally.
But comments made by his ambassador in London suggest he’s more interested in meeting the Queen than the Prime Minister.
Asked if Trump would meet the Queen, U.S. Ambassador Woody Johnson told Sky News: “Yes. He has to see the British head of state,” adding that other details of the trip had not been finalised.
He added: “Meeting her majesty is the most important thing, because she is head of state.”
