On July 13th, 2018, history will be made when United States President Donald Trump meets with Queen Elizabeth.
The President is expected to be in the United Kingdom with First Lady Melania.
The two world leaders have never met before. The arrangement is believed to be requested by the U.S. ambassador Robert Wood Johnson.
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.”
The two leaders will meet at Windsor Castle where the Queen currently resides and the same place that Prince Harry married American actress Meghan Markle. Windsor will be closed to the public during the July 13th meeting.
The British Prime Minister, Theresa May, confirmed that she is also planning on meeting the President. The PM is reported to want to discuss recent immigration concerns in America which have sparked major interest with the British Parlament.
President Trump was scheduled to take a trip to London in early 2018 but had then canceled after disagreeing with the U.S. embassy building and price that went up in London.
