Mr Trump and his wife Melania will make the trip from June 3–5 and meet with the Queen. They will attend a ceremony in Portsmouth to mark 75 years since the D-Day landings. The President will also have a meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May in Downing Street. It is expected the Queen will host a banquet for around 150 guests in Mr Trump’s honor.”The UK and United States have a deep and enduring partnership that is rooted in our common history and shared interests,” Mrs May said in a statement. The visit is expected to have a positif impact in areas such as trade, investment, security and defence for the two countries.
Mr Trump previously met the Queen at Windsor Castle when he came to the UK in July 2018 on a working visit. Some organisations said they were planning a “huge demonstration” against his state visit. The Queen has hosted two previous state visits from US presidents: George W Bush in November 2003, and Barack Obama in May 2011. The Queen usually receives one or two heads of state a year. From the UK, President Trump and his wife will travel to Normandy, in northern France, as a guest of President Emmanuel Macron to attend D-Day ceremonies at the Normandy American Cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer.
