Sorry not sorry Don.Donald Trump has state visit to UK downgraded 'and will not be guest of the Queen'
Downgrade comes after threats of mass protests by opponents.
Donald Trump’s planned state visit to the UK in 2018 has been downgraded to a “working visit”, likely forming part of a multi-country tour, it has been reported.
It means the billionaire will not be a guest of the Queen, as was previously envisaged.
Theresa May’s offer of a state visit to the first-term President was greeted with the threat of mass protests by opponents.
Mr Trump’s visit will now take place without the glitz and pomp of a full state visit, the Evening Standard reported.
A state visit was also opposed by London mayor Sadiq Khan, who said he was “not sure it is appropriate for our government to roll out the red carpet” for Mr Trump.
Hundreds of thousands of people had signed a petition against the plan.
In July senior Government sources told The Independent the state visit was still planned for 2018 despite the outrage.
