This morning the container ship came partly unstuck from the shoreline, where it ran aground in the canal last Tuesday, and later resumed its course shortly after 3pm local time. The Suez Canal is one of the world's busiest shipping lanes and the blockage had created a backlog of vessels at either end, raising concerns over the impact on global shipping and supply chains.

(CNN) —  

US President Donald Trump will make his first state visit to the United Kingdom in June, Buckingham Palace said Tuesday, more than two years after an invitation was first extended.

The visit will take place from June 3 to June 5, and will involve the full trappings of a state occasion.

Confirmation of the visit is likely to reignite debate over Queen Elizabeth’s role in welcoming Trump. His last visit to the UK, in July 2018, was styled as a working visit. It nevertheless prompted huge protests in central London.

This time, the President and First Lady will attend a ceremony marking the 75th anniversary of D-Day at Portsmouth, a naval city on England’s south coast and important embarkation site in the World War II operation.

From there, they will travel to Normandy in France on the invitation of French President Emmanuel Macron, to continue D-Day commemorations. Separately, Trump and Macron will also hold a bilateral meeting.

While in the UK, Trump will also hold a meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May, as well as a private audience with the Queen.

Trump’s state visit will have similar ceremonial flourishes to that enjoyed by former President Barack Obama in 2011 – including a formal welcome at Horse Guard’s Parade, followed by lunch and dinner at Buckingham Palace – a royal source told CNN.

However, there will be no carriage procession, and the Queen is unable to host the presidential couple overnight at the palace, due to long-term refurbishment work, the source said.

Visit comes at delicate time for May

The trip will finally make good on May’s invitation to Trump for a full state visit shortly after he took office in 2016 – which prompted 1.8 million to sign a petition in protest.

During last year’s trip, the president ruffled feathers in the British establishment after he criticized May’s Brexit deal in tabloid newspaper the Sun and praised her recently-resigned Foreign Secretary – and potential leadership rival – Boris Johnson as a “very talented guy.”

In the interview, Trump said May “didn’t listen” to his views on how she should negotiate the UK’s exit from the European Union – an extraordinary criticism of a foreign leader during a trip to that leader’s country.

It made for an awkward follow-up press conference at the prime minister’s official country house, Chequers, where Trump accused the Sun of peddling “fake news” and offered an apology of sorts to May.

This year’s potential state visit is likely to come at a similarly delicate time for May’s Brexit negotiations. Her beleaguered withdrawal agreement with the European Union has already been defeated three times in the House of Commons amid deadlock among Members of Parliament.

The country has now been given a six-month extension on leaving the EU – its second delay to the original March 29 deadline.

If the UK hasn’t agreed to pass the withdrawal agreement or come up with an alternative plan by October 31 it will crash out of the bloc without a deal at all.

Given Trump’s track record for aggravating his British host’s domestic politics, the June visit could present new obstacles for May’s already weakened premiership.
