Who actually invited Trump for a state visit?

Donald Trump finally got his big bells-and-whistles state visit to the United Kingdom in June 2019. "The President of The United States of America, President Donald J. Trump, accompanied by Mrs. Melania Trump, has accepted an invitation from Her Majesty The Queen to pay a State Visit to the UK," an announcement on the royal family's*Twitter*account read. Many British MPs were appalled*that Her Majesty was going to host the divisive president, but did the queen really invite Trump to London personally? Not exactly.


While the official statement made it sound as though she was the one who arranged the state visit, in reality, Queen Elizabeth is little more than a high profile holiday rep when it comes to these events. "HMQ is not responsible for the invitation for a state visit to the UK,"*royal historian Cepe Smith said.*"The decision is made by Government. As head of state she undertakes to host state visits which are requested by [the] Gov."

To many, it looked like a friendly gesture on the queen's part, but it was purely business. The state visit gave British politicians and leading figures the chance to bend Trump's ear, Prince Charles included. The queen's son is a passionate environmentalist and he took his chance to drill the president on climate action. Trump admitted to being moved by "his passion for future generations"*in an interview with Good Morning Britain's Piers Morgan.
Do my eyes deceive me or is that a photo of Prince Charles ignoring a visiting Head of State during an Official State Visit?

Responding to the post of who invided P.Trump for a State Visit. We all know it is not the Queen, it is the Government. The Queen is the shining star, who represents, she may be the Head of State, in Name only. [.....]Also every year at Opening of Parliament the Queen reads off the new laws, tax hikes or what nots, she say's my Government, she does not make laws, never has or will, neither did her father, or her Uncle David. No one knows how the Queen feels about the Head of States she meets? I don't believe that after the visit she calls for a GOSSIP session and talks about them.

"The Queen is sending a private message of condolence to the family of Captain Sir Tom Moore.

Her Majesty very much enjoyed meeting Captain Sir Tom and his family at Windsor last year. Her thoughts and those of the Royal Family are with them"

I am sorry to hear about the death of Cpt. Sir Tim Moore. He was a light in the tunnel that shined bright. Sadly he could not enjoy his Knighthood longer then six months. It was nice for the Queen to respond. Sir Tom RIP.

Very sad news about Captain Sir Tom Moore, but it is a lovely message from the Queen, and a lovely photo, too.

So sad to read the news regarding Capt. Sir Tom Moore's passing but I will always remember his incredible fundraising for the NHS.

In the 30's he raced Scott motorcycles and won several races and so that makes him top notch in my book. Rest in peace Captain Tom.

What a terrible news to hear about Captain Sir Tim Moore's passing. He will be remembered not just his services during WWII, but also his fundraising for NHS. Rest in Peace Captain Sir Tom.

I may be wrong but I have the impression Buckingham Palace does almost never share the Queen's feeling on someone she met. Would she be moved by Captain Tom much more than by other deaths ? Something like the feeling that, with Sir Tom Moore, one more member of her generation and the horrific events they went through is disappearing and very few are still alive, the feeling that the time she is/was part of is nearly gone for ever ?

I've been following Sir Tom Moore on the Mail Online since he started his walks. I'm sorry this happened to him.

One thing that makes me smile is that the news of Sir Tom Moore's death was posted in "Famous People Who Have Died in 2021" thread. That's where I posted my feelings about it and didn't want to cross post. He sure made his mark on our world didn't he?

Hannah Ingram-Moore, daughter of Captain Sir Tom Moore spoke to BBC Breakfast. There was a small segment on The Queen including Mrs. Ingram-Moore receiving a letter from The Queen after her father's death. She also spoken about his pride in meeting The Queen as his highlight moment "of a remarkable year".

Quote:
She also spoke of his pride at meeting the Queen when he was awarded a knighthood in July - his "standout" moment of a remarkable year.

"Alongside so many incredible things, it seems a little harsh on all the other things, but there is only one, and that was meeting the Queen," said Mrs Ingram-Moore.

"And she said thank you, and recognised what the family had done. We can never undo that, nothing can ever undo that."

The Queen led tributes to Capt Sir Tom when his death was announced.

"We had a lovely letter from her and I think she felt genuine loss - it's another one of her generation," Mrs Ingram-Moore said.

Captain Sir Tom Moore's family shielded him from "pretty horrific" internet trolling that would have "broken his heart", his daughter said.

That was really lovely of his daughter to share those memories of her late fathers meeting with the queen.

The Queen has invited Park Lane Stable volunteers to visit the Royal Mews, after their fundraising campaign to save the stable, which was threatened with closure in May. The Park Lane Stable on Teddington supports Riding for The Disabled. They raised over £1.3million in just fifty six days.

Some light hearted or even silly news. Two days ago on 15th March, Police Scotland has tweeted out that HMS Queen Elizabeth is visiting Glen Mallan and some restriction on aircrafts. A twitter user (who was described as a Scottish Nationalist by the Daily Mail) mistaken the navy ship to Her Majesty The Queen and responded with a bit of frustration on why she is allowed to visit during the pandemic. UK Defence Journal then replied by asking the question "Are you a 65,000 tonne Royal Navy aircraft carrier?"

UK Government's announcement on the arrival of HMS Queen Elizabeth at Glen Mallan: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/h...the-first-time

Picture of the twitter conversation: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EwhdNv1W...jpg&name=large

The Daily Mail and other publications have picked up the story.
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...h-monarch.html

The twitter use has now deleted the tweet, but it's too late for people to take screenshots. The UK Defence Journal even took a screenshot

Tweet by Police Scotland (part of a chain):
Police Scotland @policescotland
Please be advised that for the duration that HMS Queen Elizabeth is visiting Glen Mallan, no aircraft are allowed to fly within 3 nautical miles of the ship and below 6,000 feet within the 3 nautical mile radius.

Such news are a much needed lighthearted relief. Are you a 65,000 tonne Royal Navy aircraft carrier indeed?
