Melania Trump praised for J. Mendel gown: 'She looks like a princess'

Whilst Trump's trip is not the full state visit he was originally promised, he was heralded by military bands on his arrival in the country and at Blenheim, and on Friday he will have tea with Queen Elizabeth. The 47-year-old disembarked from her plane in a trench coat - a classic item which retails at £1450 from Burberry - one the UK's most recognisable designers.

When asked about Trump's remarks, May said in Brussels: "What we are doing is delivering on the vote of the British people... that's what our proposal does".

Of course, the Trumps did not attend the event; nor did any other former US presidents, most likely because the royal family follows a rule that prohibits its members from taking a political stance.

Fresh from a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit where Trump chided Germany and other European nations for failing to contribute enough to defence spending, British Prime Minister Theresa May is hoping his trip will boost the close ties between their two nations and help forge a future free trade deal.

The US President described Britain as a "pretty hot spot right now with a lot of resignations" and suggested his meeting with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday could be easier. "But maybe they're taking a little bit of a different route, so I don't know if that's what they voted for".

The first of the London protests against Donald Trump's visit outside Winfield House in Regents Park - demonstrators planning to make as much noise as possible overnight to stop Trump getting a good night's sleep!

Protests will culminate in a 70,000-strong march through London from Portland Place to Trafalgar Square. At a post-summit press conference, he told reporters he's OK with protests set to take place in the United Kingdom during his visit.

Tens of thousands of people are expected to protest against Trump's visit in central London on Friday, citing his alleged Islamophobia, controversial policies and "incendiary rhetoric" towards people with disabilities and the LGBTQ community.

"Tonight there will be protests, tomorrow there will be protests".

That turmoil includes the resignations of May's Brexit and foreign ministers over her plan to retain close ties with the European Union after leaving the bloc in March.

Dick said they will be linked through to units at the same level in sectors such as the intelligence world.

The giant inflatable "Baby Trump" balloon will be flown near the Houses of Parliament ahead of the protest.

It was "up to the people" whether or not they want May to stay as Prime Minister, he added.

"The spirit of friendship and cooperation between our countries, our leaders and our people, that most special of relationships, has a long and proud history".

Melania Trump will arrive in England from Brussels today with Donald Trump ahead of a visit which will be marked by protests, a "Go Home" van driving around Westminster - and a six-metre tall orange inflatable baby.

Ahead of his arrival the PM said she would use the visit to "forge a strengthened, ambitious and future-proof trade partnership" with the USA after Brexit.
