Here's PM Narendra Modi's To Do List in London

London:  A grand lunch at Buckingham Palace in London with the Queen of England sounds very royal indeed. And it seems Prime Minister Narendra Modi would be served that during his visit to London in less than a fortnight.

PM Modi's first stop after landing in London on November 12 will be at 10 Downing Street to meet Prime Minister David Cameron. After a possible press interaction here, he will head to see Mahatma Gandhi's statue at Parliament Square, right next to the statue of Sir Winston Churchill. The PM will then cross over to reach the world's oldest Parliament to deliver an address there.

"Prime Minister Modi will be speaking at the Parliament. It is only appropriate that he addresses the parliament house and also the Indian diaspora," said Keith Vaz, the longest serving Birtish MP of Indian origin.

The same evening Mr Modi will meet top CEOs of mainly the manufacturing sector and will then settle for dinner at the Chequers Court - the Prime Minister's country residence. The surprise addition though in list of things to do is on November 13. PM Modi is likely to have a private lunch meeting with Her Majesty, The Queen at Buckingham Palace. Earlier this month, Chinese President Xi Jinping received a red carpet welcome at Buckingham Palace during his four-day state visit. PM Modi's is not a state visit, however, it appears he would be given a grand welcome too.

'Make in India' is likely to be heard more than once from the Indian PM. A visit to the Warwick University near the Jaguar manufacturing plant is on the cards, before he heads to Wembley Stadium to speak to a massive audience of over 60,000.

Wembley will see fireworks, Indian Diwali style. But even outside fireworks are expected, with some planning protests against what they call as his anti-minority policies.

On the last day of his tour on November 14, PM Modi would inaugurate Dr Ambedkar Memorial in London and a statue of Basaweshwara, Kannada poet and social reformer.
