& # 39; At least they spelled it well! & # 39; Social media users mocked Donald Trump's officials about embarrassing blunder as they Queen & # 39; Her ROYAL Majesty & # 39; to mention
- Blunder appears in a statement from the White House news agency in Washington DC
- President Donald Trump and his wife Melania have accepted the invitation of Queen
- Announcement comes after Theresa May offered an invitation to Mr. Trump in 2017
The White House today made its first blunder prior to Donald Trump's state visit to Britain before he arrived, falsely claiming the Queen & # 39; Her Royal Majesty & # 39; called.
The blunder appeared in a statement from the Washington DC press service today confirming that the US president and his wife Melania had accepted the invitation.
It said: & # 39; President Donald J Trump and First Lady Melania Trump accepted the invitation of Her Royal Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to visit the United Kingdom. & # 39;

The White House press statement today wrongly named the queen & # 39; Her Royal Majesty & # 39;
Instead, the queen should be referred to as & # 39; Her Majesty & # 39 ;. A Twitter user said: & # 39; Trump embarrasses us and he's not even there yet. Her Royal Majesty? & # 39;
Another said: & # 39; That's what JFK called her in The Crown. Perhaps not the best place to learn etiquette. & # 39; And a third tweeted: & # 39; At least they spelled it right. & # 39;
It comes more than two years after Prime Minister Theresa May offered the invitation to Mr. Trump's presidency for only a few days when they met in January 2017.
Mrs. May received a lot of criticism because she had paid homage to a controversial figure and campaigners have already promised to organize demonstrations.
Many other US presidents have visited the king, but only George W. Bush and Barack Obama have ever been honored with a state visit.
The Prime Minister said that Mr Trump's three-day visit from 3 June this year would be an opportunity for the UK and the US to have their & # 39; already close relationship & # 39; to strengthen.
Mr. Trump will hold a bilateral meeting with Ms. May during the trip and attend a ceremony in Portsmouth to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
Countries that fought alongside the UK in the historic military operation, as well as in Germany, have been invited to attend.
Commons Speaker John Bercow was urged last week to allow Mr. Trump to address Parliament after rumors of the state visit came into circulation.

More than 100,000 people took to the streets in London to protest during his visit in 2018
Visiting heads of state sometimes have the honor of speaking with the Commons and the Lords.
However, in 2017, Mr. Bercow led controversy by saying that the American leader should not get a formal address.
The visit will probably follow the traditional format of an official welcome in the open air with prestigious British regiments, lunch with the queen and a state banquet.
The Stand Up To Trump organization said campaigners had promised to mobilize huge numbers in response to the state visit.
Trump & # 39; s blunders during his last visit … and how previous comments about royals could make things uncomfortable
Donald Trump made a series of blunders during his visit to Britain last June when he was criticized for not following the royal protocol when he met the queen.
The president was late for his first meeting with the 92-year-old monarch who waited at Windsor Castle for 15 minutes in the heat of the 80F (27C).
The queen saw her watch checked while she waited for Mr. Trump, who then gave her a handshake with his wife Melania who did not respond.

But his greatest misery came when he was invited to join the queen at the guard of honor, turned her back on her, and marched forward as they walked.
The president looked out of line with the official choreography – causing the queen to point carefully forward and ask him to go left.
However, Mr Trump failed to record the signal and instead came to a sudden halt. The queen eventually just shuffled around him.
He later said about the sovereign in an interview: & # 39; That's a beautiful woman. & # 39;
Mr. Trump can also have a difficult conversation with Prince Charles, a passionate environmentalist who fights climate change & # 39; the wolf at the door & # 39; has named. The president called it a & # 39; Chinese hoax & # 39; and & # 39; bulls *** & # 39 ;.
As for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, it is unlikely that Prince William will be impressed by Mr. Trump's remarks about his mother. Mr. Trump once said that he would have slept without hesitation with Diana, Princess of Wales.
In a Howard Stern radio interview recorded just months after the princess died, he also has her & # 39; beautiful & # 39; but & # 39; crazy & # 39; branded.
Mr. Trump bombarded Diana with huge bouquets at Kensington Palace, says broadcaster Selina Scott, who said he saw the princess as & # 39; the ultimate trophy woman & # 39 ;.
She added that Mr. Trump gave Diana the jitters: & # 39; It started to feel like Trump was chasing her. & # 39;
Mr. Trump also commented on Kate after being photographed as she sank topless through the paparazzi in France. & # 39; Kate Middleton is great – but she doesn't have to lie naked on the sunbed – just blame herself & # 39 ;, he tweeted.
