London, Nov 21: British officials are planning to invite Donald Trump to meet the Queen as the government deploys its "secret weapon" to cement close ties with the new American President-elect.

Plans to roll out the red carpet for Trump with a state visit in the summer of 2017 are being drawn up at the highest levels in Whitehall, The Times reported on Sunday.
