Buckingham Palace have released further details ahead of the Queen’s meeting with Donald Trump on Friday.
Her Majesty is set to have tea with the president and his wife Melania at Windsor Castle when the pair head to the U.K. later this week, a newly-released statement confirmed.
The message also revealed the Queen would welcome Mr. and Mrs. Trump at the dais in the Quadrangle of the Castle, before a Guard of Honour, formed of the Coldstream Guards, will give a Royal Salute as the U.S. National Anthem is played.
CNN‘s Betsy Klein posted on Twitter:
The news comes after Trump, who is set to arrive at London Stansted Airport on Thursday, spoke to reporters about his visit to the U.K. at the White House on Tuesday.
He said: “So I have NATO, I have the U.K., which is in somewhat turmoil, and I have Putin. Frankly, Putin may be the easiest of them all, who would think? Who would think? But the U.K. certainly – they certainly have a lot of things going on.”
The Queen, who has previously met Presidents Barack Obama (2016), George W. Bush (2008) and Ronald Reagan (1982) at Windsor Castle, has had a busy week, with the royal taking part in the RAF 100 celebrations Tuesday after missing out on Prince Louis’ christening on Monday.
