(TELEGRAPH) — Donald Trump will receive an invitation to meet with the Queen in the summer of next year, according to reports.

Ministers believe the Queen is their “secret weapon” and Theresa May will use the state visit to help strengthen the “special relationship” between Britain and the United States.

The US president-elect reportedly told the Prime Minister during a phone call last week that his late Scottish mother had been a “big fan” of the Queen.
