After great anticipation, it’s finally confirmed that United States President Donald Trump meets with Queen Elizabeth!
The President is expected to be in the United Kingdom with First Lady Melania. This will be the first time the two world leaders have ever met. They are scheduled to meet on July 13th, 2018.

But Johnson is not alone in wanting the meeting with Trump and Her Majesty; Theresa May, Britain’s Prime Minister, also believes the meeting is imperative, mainly because the President will already be in her country.
The introduction of the President to the Queen is stated to be a priority for the President. Johnson confirmed that President Trump “had to” meet with the monarch in say, “I mean he has to see the head of state. Putting his foot on British soil, it’s job one; it’s essential, very symbolic.”
He continued, “Meeting Her Majesty is the most important thing, because she’s the head of state, and from then on, it’ll be what the President wants to do.”
While the meeting will be iconic and historical, it also happens to support the theory an interesting theory.

The best part is that they'll be meeting at the very place that Harry and Meghan married: Windsor Castle!
Britain’s Prime Minister, Theresa May, confirmed that she is also planning on meeting the President. The two have already met multiple times since President Trump’s presidency, but this time will they expect to cover one very serious topic: immigration. The recent immigration concerns in America which have sparked significant interest with the British Parlament.
