Last year saw Donald Trump’s first official visit of the United Kingdom, announcing before he left, ‘I think they like me over there’.
In response, the UK came out in force to say otherwise, holding mass protests in the streets, resulting in the president actually avoiding the English capital and staying at Windsor and Chequers for his official engagements instead.
Everyone from TV presenters and A-list celebrities to politicians and athletes got involved, with even Prince Charles and Prince William choosing not to meet the President, and leaving the Queen to meet DT at Windsor Castle solo.
People were surprised therefore when it was announced that Donald was returning to the UK, with the Royal Family releasing the following statement:
‘The President of The United States of America, President Donald J. Trump, accompanied by Mrs Melania Trump, has accepted an invitation from Her Majesty The Queen to pay a State Visit to the UK. The visit will take place from Monday 3rd June to Wednesday 5th June this year. President Trump and Mrs Trump previously joined The Queen for tea at Windsor Castle in July 2018.’
