LONDON (AP) — President Donald Trump is poised to have lunch with Queen Elizabeth II.
Trump and first lady Melania Trump will begin their two-day state visit with a reception and lunch at Buckingham Palace on Monday.
Trump is expected to be greeted with significant protests throughout his time in London.
The lunch with the monarch should largely be free of the thorny political issues that await Trump later in his visit to London, including meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May just days before she steps aside as the head of her political party.
