DONALD TRUMP will soon arrive to Britain for a state visit, during which he will meet high profile members of the Royal Family during a series of official engagement. A newly-resurfaced report suggests there could be a little tension, as the US President was reportedly “deliberately snubbed” by both Prince William and Prince Charles last year.

Donald Trump will arrive to the UK tomorrow for a state visit, which will last until Wednesday. The US President is expected to bring his entire family, including his wife Melania and daughter Ivanka. The trip will include a series of official engagements, including a meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May and an invitation to Buckingham Palace from Her Majesty the Queen.
The Trumps are expected to meet not only the monarch like last year, but also Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince William, Kate and Prince Harry.
Meghan Markle is expected to stay at home with her newborn baby Archie Harrison.
According to a newly-resurfaced report, there might be a little tension during the welcome ceremony and the scheduled afternoon tea.
In a 2017 report by the Sunday Times, it is claimed Prince Charles and Prince William both “refused to attend” last year’s meeting, when Mr Trump came to the UK for a working visit.

A source told the publication at the time: “This business of Prince Charles and Prince William not being there for the Trump visit was a snub.
“They simply refused to attend.
“It’s a very, very unusual thing for the Queen to be there on her own.
“Usually she is accompanied by somebody.
“Prince Charles has been substituting for Philip a lot recently.”
Despite last year’s snub, Prince Charles is said to be preparing to exchange views on a particularly thorny issue with Mr Trump during his visit.

A source close to the Prince of Wales said “it is very likely” climate change will be discussed.
He told the Mail on Sunday: “Climate change is a subject that the Prince has talked about for 40 years and he will look forward to discussing it with the President should it come up.
“He would be very happy to have the opportunity to talk about it.”
A second source added Charles had “more than enough experience” to prevent any diplomatic incident.
