Trump Won't Get Royal Welcome During UK Visit

If Trump's trip is a working visit, he will likely stay at the US ambassador's residence, according to the Standard.

Trump may be allowed cut the ribbon on the brand new United States embassy which is close to completion at Nine Elms, near Battersea Power Station.

The Foreign Office said a State Visit, which is seen by MPs as being on indefinite hold, would go ahead at some stage.

A spokesperson for British Prime Minister Theresa May said Trump had accepted an invite for a state visit, but that her office was not aware of any discussions relating to a separate working visit.

When diplomats are visiting as part of a state visit, they typically stay at Buckingham Palace.

Several objections were made to May's proposal, leading House of Commons speaker John Bercow to declare that the president would not be allowed to address the house amid threats of both labour and Tory party boycotts and mass protests.

The Guardian newspaper reported in June that Trump's state visit had been postponed indefinitely after he told May during a phone conversation that he did not want to come if there were going to be large-scale protests.

A full-blown State Visit would then be planned, possibly for later in the year.

Since then the visit has been quietly put on the backburner.

The move would avoid the controversy surrounding Mr Trump's state visit, which was offered by Theresa May within days of his inauguration but is yet to take place.

But the invitation prompted a huge backlash as leading politicians said Mr Trump should not be granted the honour because of his controversial policies on immigration and terrorism.
