Donald Trump is missing out on privileges offered to other heads of state, including his predecessor Barack Obama, during his visit the UK.
Trump and First Lady Melania arrive on June 3 for a state visit. During his three-day visit, the president will attend a banquet at Buckingham Palace, have a private tea with Charles, lay a wreath at the Grave of the Unknown Warrior in Westminster Abbey and attend events to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings.
However, the US President has been denied additional perks attached to a state visit.
Unlike Obama, the current President has not been asked make an address in the Houses of Parliament.
He will also not participate in a carriage ride to Buckingham Palace, a decision attributed to ‘security concerns’.
And Mr Trump won’t stay in Buckingham Palace during his three-day visit due to renovation work.
Political commentator and journalist Daisy McAndrew told Yahoo UK’s The Royal Box Mr Trump may well have expected to be asked to make a speech to MPs and Lords.
She said: “There are many things that a head of state could expect to do on a state visit that Donald Trump's not getting to do.
“He's not addressing both Houses of Parliament as he might have expected to have been invited to do, he's not getting the carriage going down the Mall.
“We're told that's because of security but of course security probably means protestors.”
John Bercow, speaker of the House of Commons, has blocked Mr Trump from delivering a speech to MPs, citing the UK’s ‘opposition to racism and to sexism’.
Mr Bercow first announced he would not extend the honour to the divisive President when he took office, but came under renewed pressure to change his mind when the Queen extended an invitation for an official state visit.
Barack Obama delivered a speech in Westminster Hall to MPs and Lords in 2011, telling assembled politicians: “I have known few greater honours than the opportunity to address the Mother of Parliaments at Westminster Hall.”
The former President did not participate in a carriage ride during his state visit, instead travelling to Buckingham Palace in an armoured vehicle.
China’s President Xi Jinping was given the honour of a carriage ride during a controversial state visit in 2015 that saw mass protests over the issue of China’s human rights record.
Opponents and supporters lined the Mall as Mr Xi took part in a procession after meeting The Queen, Prince Philip and then Prime Minister David Cameron.
Mr Trump will bring ‘The Beast’ - his bulletproof and bomb-resistant limousine - for his visit to the UK. He and his family will stay in the US embassy in Battersea, South London.
