US President Donald Trump’s White House is said be “very positive” about the invite.

The US has been invited to join the Commonwealth, in a project said to be backed by the Queen.

The Royal Commonwealth Society is planning to open a branch in New York with a view to bringing the US into the fold as an “associate member”, the Telegraph reports.

It comes amid Queen Elizabeth-led efforts to develop the Commonwealth as a tool for building relationships on everything from foreign policy to trade, following Britain’s exit from the European Union.

Queen Elizabeth has made the strength of the Commonwealth one of her main priorities.

“The UK rather left this treasure in the attic, and forgot about it because people were so glued to Brussels,” said Michael Lake, the director of the Royal Commonwealth Society told the Telegraph.

In December, Lake wrote a letter to new US President Donald Trump.

It was hand-delivered to Nigel Farage, the former far-right Ukip leader, by his close aide Andrew Wigmore.

Farage, who has emerged as an ally of Trump, promoted the idea with senior aides, and then reportedly presented the letter to Steve Bannon, the president’s chief strategist.

Lake wrote that opening a Commonwealth branch in America would help the UK and the US “find imaginative ways” to work together.

Wigmore told The Telegraph the response from the White House was “very positive”.
