America's president Donald Trump is reportedly setting his plans for his first official visit to the U.K. upon Prime Minister Theresa May's invitation. Among what the president is preparing for are his gifts for the royal kids, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
According to Express, Trump has been keen on giving the children, and even Queen Elizabeth II, bespoke cowboy saddles. It will be engraved with the seal of the President of the United States as well as the symbol for the Queen. The royals are expected to love the gift being lovers of horses and riding.
"He doesn't just want to give them something that will sit at the back of a cupboard or gather dust on a mantelpiece," a source apparently told the news outlet. "He wants to give them something he knows they will enjoy and use."
Prime Minister May met with Trump in the White House just days after he assumed his post as president. According to The New Yorker, the British criticized their leader for coming to Washington so early in his administration, but it was said to be a fruitful meeting as the two leaders discussed their roles in NATO.
When May extended an invitation for the American leader to visit London and the royal family, the British also made sure their objection would be heard. In fact, a petition to prevent Trump from meeting the royals has so far received 1,844,685 signatures.
Because of such a strong opposition, the parliament will supposedly deliberate on whether Trump can have an audience with the Queen. The deliberation will be aired live on the internet on Feb. 20.
May was also castigated by former Foreign Office head Lord Peter Ricketts because she has placed the Queen in a very awkward position, according to The Times. "It would have been far wiser to wait to see what sort of president he would turn out to be before advising the Queen to invite him," Lord Ricketts said.
