President Donald Trump demanded the Queen's gold plated carriage for his (likely never to happen) state visit to the United Kingdom according The Sunday Times.His use of the Queen's carriage would have required security personnel by the thousands. It also would have caused paralysis in London, since security operations and protests would have locked down the city.
Donald Trump waving from the Queen’s royal carriage is not a scenario many would have foreseen a year ago, but it has become a very real prospect, forcing security services to plan an unprecedented lockdown. The White House has made clear it regards the carriage procession down the Mall as an essential element of the itinerary for the visit currently planned for the second week of October, according to officials. Security sources have warned, however, that the procession will require a “monster” security operation, far greater than for any recent state visit.
