Speculation has been growing that Trump's visit would include meeting the Queen after it emerged Windsor Castle could be closed to the public on the day of his visit, however Buckingham Palace have yet to confirm whether this is the case.

"When we disagree with the United States we tell them so", she told MPs. "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", Johnson says.

The Prime Minister was more measured than her political opponents in denouncing Donald Trump and the practice of separating children from their parents.

A date for Trump's trip, July 13, was finally fixed in April.

"The pictures of children held cages are deeply disturbing", May said, via CNN's Jeff Zelany.

"This is wrong, this is not something that we agree with".

"The welfare and safeguarding of children is at the heart of our immigration policy: we do not separate child asylum seekers or refugees from their families". The viability of that order is uncertain.

The prime minister has been a frequent critic and the relationship between the two appears to have soured after May became the first world leader to visit Trump's White House last February. His upcoming visit in July is expected to draw protests.

Trump has yet to visit Britain in any capacity since his election.

The possibility of Trump visiting the United Kingdom has been discussed since he took office in January 2017. Other events are expected across the country, the group said. The New York Times notes some Brits aren't thrilled about Trump being on United Kingdom soil; an anti-Trump petition seeking to prevent a state visit was signed by almost 1.9 million people earlier this year.

The petition led to Parliament debating whether the government should rescind its invitation to Trump. British news outlets reported that the White House was anxious about demonstrations against his visit.
