  • The Queen to meet President Trump and First Lady at Windsor Castle on Friday

Donald Trump, Melania Trump and and French President's wife Brigitte Macron (L) walk prior to attend a working dinner at The Parc du Cinquantenaire - Jubelpark Park in Brussels on July 11, 2018, during the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit.

Some Brexit supporters have cast May's Brexit plan as a betrayal, including MPs in her own deeply-divided party who have warned of a leadership challenge.

Safety alerts are normally issued to foreign citizens by their embassies in times of political instability, terrorism, and natural disasters; but the US embassy in London has had to issue a "demonstration alert" on Tuesday ahead of planned protests for July 12 to 14.

In another blow to May, Trump said her now ex-foreign secretary "would be a great prime minister. But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?"

The Trumps, as the guests of honour, will interact with leaders of United Kingdom business sectors such as financial services, travel, creative industries, food and drink, engineering, tech, infrastructure, pharmaceuticals and defence.

This will be followed by a Guard of Honour giving the Royal Salute, with the US national anthem being played, and Trump and the Queen inspecting the Guard of Honour.

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

Whilst Mr 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 later today he will have tea with Queen Elizabeth. "I think they like me a lot in the UK".

BMC take team time trial stage but Froome makes gains
Froome was left 55 seconds behind in the overall standings with another week of nervy rolling stages before hitting the Alps. It will be van Avermaet's second stint in yellow after three days in the maillot jaune during the 2016 Tour de France.

She'll also be hoping Mr. Trump ignores the thousands of people protesting his visit.

Trump and Melania landed on Air Force One at 2pm to begin their four-day tour of the UK in London, reports Metro UK.

The demonstrations were in stark contrast to Trump's assertion to the press that the British "agree with me on immigration" and mirrored those in Brussels ahead of Trump's arrival there on Tuesday to meet with other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders.

A campaign is also underway to get "American Idiot", a 2004 song by the USA punk rock band Green Day, to the top of the UK Singles Chart.

"But from the public, the welcome will be far from warm", he added saying there would be protests across the country against Trump's "abysmal record on human rights, his repugnant attitude towards women and his disgusting treatment of minorities".

On Thursday, Trump will travel to Blenheim Palace, the 18th-century stately home where Britain's World War Two leader Winston Churchill was born and spent most of his childhood. These will focus on relations with Russian Federation, trade, Brexit and the Middle East.

Buckingham Palace confirmed on Wednesday that the visit would see the president and first lady being welcomed by the Queen in the dais of the quadrangle of Windsor Castle.

In Scotland, almost 8,000 people had signed a petition to be allowed to fly the giant Trump baby ballon over the Turnberry course where the USA president is expected to play golf Saturday.
