Meghan Markle’s Name Is Missing from the Schedule of Trump’s Intended Visit to the UK
US President Donald Trump is set to visit The Buckingham Palace on his first official state visit to the UK next month. Visiting Meghan Markle isn't part of his schedule.
Trump will be visiting for three days, and even though he will visit the royal family, Meghan Markle, who is vocal about her dislike for the President is reportedly missing from that list.
Trump will be meeting with outgoing PM Theresa May and royals, including the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke, and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex.
Also, Queen Elizabeth, with the company of the Prince of Wales and Camilla will host Trump and his wife Melania on the 3rd of June at the private part of the Buckingham Palace.
After that, Prince Harry will join them for a private lunch at the palace. In the evening, there will be a banquet in the palace ballroom where President Trump, the Queen, Charles, and Camilla will be joined by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with the UK public figures and eminent Americans living in Britain.
On the second day, Trump and Theresa May will host a business breakfast meeting with Prince William and Kate. Trump will then proceed to a joint press conference with the Prime Minister whose tenure as Conservative leader will be over just a few days after, (June 7).
After the press conference, the Trumps will host a dinner at Winfield House, the residence of the US ambassador, which the Queen won't be able to attend, but will be represented by Prince Charles and Camilla.
Trump's visit to the UK was announced last month, and Prime Minister Theresa May addressed it as an opportunity for both countries to strengthen their "already close relationship." If the report about Trump not meeting Meghan is true, then there are some excellent reasons why he chose not to.
Before the Duchess of Sussex married into the royal family, she was a "solid" and outspoken supporter of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election.
I’m told that the Duke of Sussex will attend the Buckingham Palace lunch for @POTUS (but not his wife, obviously, who only gave birth a few weeks ago). And as I revealed earlier this week, no Sussexes at the state banquet, but the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will attend.— Rebecca English (@RE_DailyMail) May 24, 2019
She also urged her social media followers not to vote for the Republican, calling him names like “misogynistic” and “divisive." Meghan won't seem to care because she has baby Archie to keep her company anyway.
By the looks of things, not everyone in the UK is looking forward to the President's visit. Some politicians, including Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, have announced that they won't attend the special banquet.
Protests are also expected to take place in London, with anti-Trump campaigners planning on flying a controversial balloon in the skies during his arrival.
People were also angry at the President after he went for his working visit in 2018, mostly because of the excessive amount of money that was spent.
It was estimated that his security alone cost nearly £18 million. Approximately 10,000 officers from across the country were needed to provide extra protection throughout the US president's four-day trip.
