The US Ambassador has confirmed Donald Trump will meet the Queen during his visit next month.

The president is due to visit the country for the first time since being elected in 2016 on Friday, July 13. 

His trip was downgraded from a state visit to a working visit by Theresa May last year amid fears of mass protests. 

But this afternoon ambassador Robert Wood Johnson told Sky News while plans have not yet been finalised, they will involve the president meeting Her Majesty.

There has been widespread speculation about whether or not he would meet the Queen however it has been confirmed today he will visit Windsor. 

If the monarch was to snub Trump it would break tradition as the Queen has met every US president since 1945 bar Lyndon Johnson.
