Queen Elizabeth II will reportedly invite President-elect Donald Trump to Windsor Castle for a state visit next summer.
According to British newspaper The Sunday Times, the Queen will send the invitation for an official visit after the former reality star is sworn in as president on Jan. 20. She will also send him a congratulatory message to mark his inauguration. (The Queen has yet to publicly comment on the U.S. election although British politicians and other world leaders have already offered their congratulations.)
The Queen traditionally issues an invitation for a state visit to the sitting U.S. president once during their four or eight-year term. She has met with every single American president since she assumed the throne in 1952 except for Lyndon B. Johnson.
While presidents sometimes make multiple visits to the U.K. for official state business, a state visit hosted by the Queen can often be a more glittering and glamorous affair — usually complete with a stay at Windsor Castle and a dinner attended by members of the royal family.
