Donald Trump UK visit 2019: Why Donald Trump WON'T meet Archie Mountbatten-Windsor

Donald Trump will meet with UK political figures and Royal Family members on June 3 next month, during his second state visit to the country. The trip is the second of its kind since July 2018, when the President visited Windsor Castle during a working event. The White House said the trip would reaffirm the ”steadfast and special relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom”. However, some have voiced their concerns about the trip, railing against Mr Trump’s conduct.

Will Donald Trump Meet Meghan Markle and baby Archie?

According to royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams, he is highly unlikely to meet the new arrival.

Talking to Express.co.uk, Mr Fitzwilliams said: “Normally an American President would naturally visit our first American Princess and her son who holds dual citizenship when here on a state visit.

“In May 2016, before she met Prince Harry, Meghan made her views about Trump public.

“They were far from flattering, she found him ‘divisive’ and ‘misogynistic’.

“As she has just given birth and is not undertaking royal duties and as Trump is not to my knowledge scheduled to visit Windsor, what would undoubtedly be an awkward meeting can be avoided.

“The Obamas unsurprisingly sent congratulations when Archie was born, I have not read anywhere that Trump sent his best wishes.

“It is therefore fortunate that matters are as they are.”

In an interview with Us Weekly, one source close to the Royal Family revealed Prince Harry was “not a fan” of the President.

The source told the magazine “Harry thinks the president is a serious threat to human rights.”

They also mentioned Prince William had expressed his concern about Mr Trump, but not in any certain terms.

Author Christopher Anderson told The Daily Beast: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry have all privately expressed their distaste for Trump.”

The sentiment seems to have been echoed in the British public as well, as major political figures have spoken out against him, and protests are planned for his forthcoming visit.

In April, MPs campaigned to have the state visit cancelled.

Mrs May believes the visit is an important opportunity to “strengthen our already close relationship” with the US.

She said: “We do more together than any two nations in the world and we are both safer and more prosperous because of our cooperation.”
