LONDON - President Donald Trump plans to visit Britain in February to open the new US embassy in London but will not meet Queen Elizabeth, the Daily Mail newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Trump's planned visit to Britain has proved controversial since Prime Minister Theresa May invited him for a state visit, which typically involves lavish pageantry and events hosted by the queen.

However nearly 2 million people have signed a petition saying Trump should not be invited because it "would cause embarrassment" to the queen, and protests could be expected to greet the US leader.

The Daily Mail cited a source in Westminster as saying Trump had told May during a call on Tuesday that he planned a working visit to Britain to open the new embassy, a billion-dollar building which overlooks the River Thames, in late February.
