Donald Trump's State Visit to the Queen is nearly here

The Queen will host US President Donald Trump for a State Visit next week - with all the pomp and circumstance that goes with it.

After last year's non-State visit, where Trump and First Lady Melania visited the Queen at Windsor Castle, this will be a step up.

But this is not just a royal visit, it is a political one too.

Daily Mirror head of politics Jason Beattie and royal editor Russell Myers join Pod Save The Queen host Ann Gripper to discuss what we can expect in pageantry, politics and pitfalls - and the somewhat chaotic political situation the visitors will find in the UK.

They also look ahead to Prince Harry visiting the opening game of the cricket World Cup, after meeting the teams' captains ahead of the Buckingham Palace garden party.

If you enjoy this episode, catch up on Jason's previous appearance on Pod Save The Queen, where we discussed the politics of royal tours.
