Summary

LONDON — In Britain, a state visit doesn’t just mean dining with the prime minister, or even tea with the queen. But there is also a sense that British officials are slightly less than enthusiastic about this particular round of state visit grandeur.Some of the traditional trappings — such as staying over at Buckingham Palace, a royal welcome at the Horse Guards Parade and a gold carriage procession down the Mall — are notably absent.“When extending a visit and making those plans concrete, you want to feel excited and joyful at the idea, and I think people have sort of seen it as something they have to get through,” said Leslie Vinjamuri, head of Chatham House’s Americas program. Bush and Barack Obama.Unlike his predecessor, Trump won’t be staying overnight at Buckingham Palace, the official residence of the queen.Instead, he will stay at Winfield House, the stately home of U.S. Ambassador Woody Johnson, which has the second-largest gardens in London (after Buckingham Palace).
