C., the Ambassador's Palace was conceived by Sir Edwin Lutyens and constructed in 1928.
Her Majesty's Ambassador's position in the United States is one of the most important offices in Her Majesty's diplomatic service, as are those of Permanent Representative to the European Union and Permanent Under-Secretary of State in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Ambassador's primary task is to present UK policy to the US Administration and the US public and to inform the UK Administration of US policy and view.
Ambassador is the Director of the United Kingdom' s Consular Mission to the United States. In addition to managing ambassadorial activities to assist commerce, he is in charge of visas as well as providing UK citizen assistance in America. Holds the titles of Minister in Washington or Minister of the United States of America.
The treaty, however, was refused by King George III, and the UK government reminded of Erskine. In the 1850' s the Ambassador's name was the Extraordinary Ambassador of Her Majesty and Minister Plenipotentiary of the United States of America, and the United Kingdom had embassies in several US towns. In 1854 and 1855, under the leadership of Sir John Crampton, UK embassies tried to win Americans as voluntary helpers for the Crimean War.
A vehement appeal was made by the US administration and President Franklin Pierce asked that Crampton be called back. In May 1856 the United Kingdom rejected the decision and the US administration fired Crampton together with the UK embassies in New York, Philadelphia and Cincinnati. The United Kingdom was able to resume its legation in Washington the following year after many negotiations, and Lord Napier became the new Secretary of State.
By 1893, the UK Embassy in Washington had elevated the UK Embassy to the status of Embassy, and Sir Julian Pauncefote, Minister since 1889, was named the first United Kingdom Ambassador to the United States, with the rank of Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Her Britannic Majesty in the United States.
