US President Donald Trump and Britain's Queen Elizabeth II.

However, under questioning from the SNP's Westminster leader Ian Blackford and Labour MPs including Ed Miliband, the Prime Minister defended the visit by Donald Trump in July, saying that meetings were the only way she could raise issues where the United Kingdom and U.S. disagree.

Ahead of the president's visit to the UK in July, the Prime Minister said the nature of the "special" relationship with the United States meant "when we disagree with what they are doing, we say so".

Mr Blackford said her answer was "disappointing" and insisted that "we should all be unreservedly condemning the actions of Donald Trump".

A spokeswoman for Buckingham Palace declined to comment.

US Ambassador Robert Wood Johnson tells Sky News not all the kinks have been worked out, but that even though it's not a state visit necessitating a Trump-Elizabeth sit-down, Trump has made it a priority.

"Meeting Her Majesty is the most important thing, because she's the head of state, and from then on, it'll be what the President wants to do".

She rebuked him previous year after he retweeted videos from a far-right group, and has also said he was wrong to criticise London mayor Sadiq Khan after the London Bridge attack last June.

Trump will be visiting Britain for the first time since becoming President on Friday 13 July.

In January, he canceled a planned trip to London to open the new USA embassy, blaming his predecessor Barack Obama for what he called a bad deal on the embassy move, even though it was agreed in 2008 before Obama took office.

The possibility of Trump visiting the United Kingdom has been discussed since he took office in January 2017.
