The Ambassador of the United Kingdom

Ambassador Karen Pierce is the first woman to hold this position.

Ambassador Karen Pierce said:

  1. She was “honoured to have been asked to represent the UK in the US.”
  2. “I think it is the UK’s single most important relationship.”
  3. “There is a deep bond between Britain and the US, built on many pillars.”

The former UK Ambassador

  • The British Embassy has been helmed by Charge d’Affaires Michael Tatham since July 2019.
  • The previous ambassador Kim Darroch resigned following a leak of his private diplomatic cables disparaging the Trump administration.

He had told 10 Downing Street that:

The Trump administration was “inept” and “clumsy.”
His resignation came after Trump said:
  • The White House would “no longer deal with” Darroch, who Trump called “not liked or well thought of within the US.”
  • Eventually, Darroch also left his post after then-Prime Minister candidate Johnson refused to support him.
