The invitation that President Donald J. Trump received to visit the United Kingdom from British Prime Minister Theresa May is not very happy for the subjects of the kingdom, who apparently do not want a visit from the new President of the American Union.
And apparently they would not be the only ones who are experiencing discomfort, according to reports by the AP agency - and which were released this morning by different media - the invitation has also put Queen Elizabeth II herself in a bind.
According to Peter Ricketts, former secretary of the British Foreign Ministry, the invitation has placed the queen in "a very complicated position", especially due to the fury surrounding the decree that Trump issued last Friday on the entry into the country of citizens of origin Muslim from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen.

In a letter sent Tuesday to the local newspaper The Times, Ricketts said that the invitation "was reckless" and that it should not have been extended until Trump had spent "a couple of years" at the head of the US government.
And it is that as it is well known, the English monarchy is governed by strict protocol codes and even despite the advanced age of the monarch - who turned 90 in 2016 - she maintains a busy and complex work schedule.
According to Ricketts, the queen makes invitations on the advice of members of the government and traditionally receives her guests at Buckingham Palace.
In the midst of the debate, thousands of protesters took to the streets of London - in protest and to demand that Trump's visit be canceled - standing in front of the prime minister's residence at 10 Downing Street.
Similarly, they have circulated a petition signed by the public, which to date has more than 1.5 million signatures.
