The Queen is due to meet Donald Trump and everyone hopes she’ll pull a sickie
The Queen is expected to meet President Donald Trump today and nobody’s convinced that she really wants to.
I am no Royalist. But i genuinely feel sorry for the Queen having to meet Donald Trump.

If anyone doesn’t think that the Queen works hard, just remember that today she’ll be entertaining Donald Trump and pretending to enjoy his company. Now that, is hard flamin’ work!

Whether you like the monarchy or you don't, you must feel for the Queen tomorrow having to meet Donald Trump. pic.twitter.com/Vaxvr1ULlb

One answer might be to do what everyone else does when they really don’t want to go to work.
Retweet if you think the Queen should pull a sickie on the day she’s supposed to meet Trump.

It’s an idea supported by these 16 people.
It looked like she might have been setting up the excuse when she didn’t attend Prince Louis’ christening.
The Queen and Prince Phillip pulling a sicky to get out of meeting Trump is the true spirit of Britain https://t.co/PTK9XkMGWw

Oooooh… if the Queen was too sick to attend her great-grandson’s christening, do we think she’ll be too sick to meet Donald Tramp? Is she doing a “sickness warm-up”?

The Queen pretending to be sick to avoid meeting Donald Trump is sort of genius

And now the Queen is saying she’s not well enough to attend a royal christening later this week. What are the chances she’s still “not well enough” to have tea with Trump?

An actual doctor had an idea for the exact ailment that would be acceptable.
It’s quite clear that Donald Trump is not a friend of the UK, and this trip is feeding his ego to no benefit of anyone else.
His meeting with the Queen should be cancelled following his comments in The Sun newspaper. Tell him she’s got the shits, or something.

There were some suggestions that a refusal to meet Trump might do wonders for her popularity.
The Queen cancelling her meeting with Trump would guarantee the future of the monarchy for the next hundred years at least.

And someone suggested sending in a substitute.
I'm trying to think, if the Royal Family wanted to humiliate Trump, they could say, we're really sorry but The Queen can't see you today. Who'd be the most humiliating substitute? It's Prince Edward isn't it?

However, plenty of people thought she should let the meeting go ahead.

If the Queen pulls a sickie, does she have to press her head against the teapot for a bit, or is she the never apologise, never explain type?

Dear The Queen. You are 92 and have the chance to do exactly what everyone else wants to do.
-Ask Trump why he is a fascist
-Ask Trump what he's trying to accomplish
-Tell him that you preferred Obama
-smash an egg on his head
You can get away with it – You're The Queen

I hope the Queen is wearing a ‘Fuck Trump’ t-shirt when she meets him
— Nigel Warburton (@philosophybites) July 12, 2018
Let’s face it, none of us would blame her if she did something really drastic to get out of having to risk having to talk to him.
If I was the Queen, I would seriously consider abdicating around lunch time to avoid having to have tea with Trump. And tell the world why.

As a bonus, let’s imagine what this would be like.
So the Queen is going to meet Trump. Why are we indulging and legitimising this racist, white supremist demagogue? Hope that people across the UK give this disgrace the welcome he deserves. Auld Lizzy should boot him in the nuts. #TrumpNotWelcome

And here are the latest pictures from the palace.
