The United Kingdom has been stingy with its state visits since Donald Trump became president, but it seems Queen Elizabeth II is willing to make an exception, even amid the Brexit crisis, to welcome Trump for the 75th anniversary of D-Day on June 6th.

People Magazine reports that “after much back and forth,” the Queen has settled on welcoming the president, now more than two years into his term, to mark the success of Operation Overlord, and the massive joint invasion that started the Allies down the path to victory in World War II.

Donald Trump may even get to ride in a carriage down London’s mall to Buckingham Palace accompanied by members of the Queen’s Household Cavalry to mark the occasion. He may also get a gun salute and an invitation to an official State dinner at the palace, held in the ballroom, per Metro.

The White House and Buckingham Palace are still ironing out the details, but a formal announcement is expected later this week. Trump is expected to follow up that visit with a jaunt to the northern coast of France, where he will take part in the official D-Day 75 festivities.

This will be the first official state visit to the UK for President Trump, but not his first visit. That came in 2018, when Trump traveled to London on a series of official engagements with UK lawmakers and trade representatives.

On that visit, Trump and his wife, Melania, were welcomed to Buckingham Palace for tea with the Queen but did not take part in any banquets.

This time, Trump will visit again with the UK’s Prime Minister Theresa May, but will also spend a few days meeting with other members of the British government, including controversial Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn, who is not a fan of the Trump administration.

If the visit with one of the United States’ most treasured allies seems late in coming, that’s because it is. Trump has been scheduled to make an official state visit to the United Kingdom since he was elected in 2016, but plans for the meetup were repeatedly shelved, and not just by U.K. leaders.

When he first took office, Theresa May offered Trump a state visit immediately and Trump accepted, but the Trump White House later pulled out of the meeting over “safety concerns.” the Metro reports.

“Trump had also been expected to open the new US Embassy in London last February, but the plan was also abandoned because he was so unimpressed with the building’s ‘off location’ and the ‘bad deal’ behind it,” Metro continues.

Neither the White House or Whitehall, the house in charge of solidifying the plans, would comment on the upcoming state visit, but Trump has spoken highly of Queen Elizabeth in previous interviews. Town & Country reports that Trump holds the monarch in high esteem.

“I think she represents her country so well,” Trump told media last year. “If you think of it, for so many years she has represented her country, she has really never made a mistake. You don’t see, like, anything embarrassing. She is just an incredible woman.”

      Go with God Mr. President. If you do go, our prayers are with you and those who accompany you. I think you are right about most everything and I especially liked your comments on the Queen who has been running the country for years and no one has ever mentioned a “mistake.”

    And now we wait for the “protests” where Sadiq Kahn will “plead with the Queen to not put her country at risk of being seen as racist.”

    Started reading the article and very quickly noticed the bias with POTUS being called “TRUMP”. Not President Trump but simply Trump this and that. Totally disrespectful to him and the office of POTUS. Also notice its un sourced that the Queen had to to and fro and is “willing to make an exception” etc. All totally un sourced and as usual made up . Also notice they state hes of on a “jaunt” again be belittling his official visit to France. Disgusting assholes these scum are with their hatred and made up media b/s to put him down.

    It ought to be quite the official state visit! And by waiting so long, it will build to quite a climax when/if it actually happens! Go, Trump!!

    We worry about our great President because we know
    the exposure of the Deep Democrat Clinton Obama Corruption Machine is about to be unraveled. Many Americans know how insane the Clinton’s are and they will do anything to prevent being exposed for Treason!
    If anything happens to President Trump, you can bet to point the 1st finger at Clinton’s & Obama’s!
    Rabid Dogs!!

    They may not like him personally but while they have their own government mess going on they certainly can’t ignore the fact that he’s leading this country into a more prosperous time with more jobs and small business owners able to operate. I’ve been watching empty strip mall fill that have barely kept one store open in 10 years. You can’t ignore positive changes unless you’re a Democrat.

    “The queen” thinks she is queen of the world and that everybody is her subjects….If I were Trump ,I would tell I’m too busy straitening out the mess her and the previous presidents have made in the world to attend any kind of war memorial she can spend our tax money on.

      But ,I would accept the invitation to France’s memorial….our long time friend….but be very careful of your travels., now that the adjudications of so many seem so close at hand.

    OOHHH GEE THanks UK, If I were President I would state shove your belated invitation, I have better things to do. BUT, I am sure this President would have more respect for the UK than I could ever muster. That Nation has insulted us in so many ways, we are their ba$tard stepchild and I am sick of their high and mighty most UNgrateful attitudes towards us!
    If not for us they would not have existed..

    I think the President shouldn’t go. London is full of muslims and terrorists. No safe I fear for his life.

    Wasn’t it London’s Muslim Mayor who said President Trump would NEVER be welcome in London as long as he was Mayor?

    Watch Out Trump! last time they tried to take you out during your side trip to Scotland and got one of your Secret Service guys instead! The U.S. is just another vassal state to the Queen and her Privy Council….eh Geoffrey Pattie? https://patriots4truth.org/2018/05/24/her-majesty-queen-elizabeth-and-the-privy-council-interfered-with-the-us-2016-presidential-election/
