President Donald Trump has reportedly canceled plans to visit Britain next month.

Trump had been expected to visit London for the official opening in February of the new American embassy.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will now take his place at the opening, British media reported.

The U.K.-based Daily Mail reported one source said the change in plan was prompted by the president's unhappiness about the arrangements and the scale of the visit.

According to the Mail, Trump, who wasn't due to meet the Queen until a full state visit at a later date, was discouraged about the lack of "bells and whistles" and royal involvement.

Trump also had expressed concern about the likelihood of protests, telling May last year he didn't want to go ahead with a visit until the British public supported it, the Mail reported.

More than a million people signed a petition last year calling for the state visit to be cancelled, the Mirror reported.

May and Trump clashed in November when she criticized his decision to retweet anti-Muslim propaganda from a far-right group, Britain First.

They clashed again when the British prime minister criticized his decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, calling it "unhelpful in terms of prospects for peace in the region," the Mail reported.
