White House Spells Theresa May's Name Wrong Three Times Ahead Of Official Visit

'Special'

Theresa May's plan to "renew the special relationship" between the UK and the US has got off to a good start.

In the schedule for the Prime Minister's first meeting with President Trump at the White House, May's name had been spelled incorrectly three times, The Guardian reports.

The release sent out to media organisations had dropped the 'h' in all three mentions of her name, so according to the memo, Trump has an appointment with 'Teresa May' at 12.10pm on Friday. It was misspelled first in the introduction and then twice more in the details of the leaders' working lunch.

The spelling error was reportedly corrected in an updated version of the memo sent half an hour later, but it wasn't the only mistake made by the White House press office on Thursday.

According to The Telegraph, the subject line of another schedule announced "a Readout of the Vice President's Call with Australian Foreign Prime Minister Julie Bishop."

Bishop is from Australia, but she is the country's Minister for Foreign Affairs. (Malcolm Turnbull is the Prime Minister.)

If it makes Trump's administration feel any better, misspelling May's first name is a common mistake. 'Teresa May' was trending on the day she became Prime Minister.
