President Trump is unconcerned about Theresa May’s political troubles and only wants to meet the Queen on his state visit to the UK next month.

A Whitehall official has told the Times that the US President and his entourage are “relaxed” about the political uncertainty in the UK - and more interested in meeting Her Majesty.

“They seem delightfully oblivious to what is going on to be honest,” the official told the paper.

President Trump will visit the UK on June 3.

Under the current arrangements, he is due to hold a series of bilateral meetings in Downing Street with the prime minister two days later.

However, it is unclear at this moment, with fevered speculation about Mrs May’s political future, who could be the PM on that date.

Westminster has been buzzing for the last 24 hours that Mrs May, who has already said she will leave Number 10, is about to step down amid huge opposition to her Brexit plan.

The latest rumours suggest she will resign after the results of the European elections, where the Conservatives are expected to fare badly in the face of a surge from other parties including Nigel Farage’s Brexit party.

PORTSMOUTH, ENGLAND - MAY 09: D-Day veteran Ted Emmings is seen in the Map Room of Southwick House on May 09, 2019 in Portsmouth, England. In the days leading up to D-Day and the invasion of mainland Europe by the Allied forces,  Southwick House became the temporary headquarters, with US General Dwight D. Eisenhower, the Supreme Allied Commander, and General Sir Bernard Montgomery, commander of the Allied ground forces, meeting here to discuss exactly which date to mount the operation. The decision to delay the landings by 24 hours was made here following warnings of severe weather potentially leading to failure. This year marks the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings, which took place on June 6, 1944,  and are thought to be a key moment in World War II, leading to the eventual victory for Allied forces.

According to tradition, a state banquet hosted by the Queen will take place on the first evening of the president’s visit.

There are usually around 150 guests for such a banquet.

It has also been confirmed that Trump will meet Prince Charles for afternoon tea during his visit at Clarence House, the Prince’s official residence.

The president will also attend a D-Day commemoration ceremony in Portsmouth on June 5 to mark 75 years since the historic day.

Other details of his visit remain to be confirmed however.

House of Commons speaker John Bercow has stated he would be “strongly opposed” to accommodating the President at the Commons.

It will be Trump’s second visit to the UK as President.
