Trump to meet Queen and UK PM outside London to avoid protest

The coalition has pledged multiple demonstrations along every step of his planned itinerary, which will include meeting Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle on Friday.

As the United Kingdom prepares to leave the European Union, insiders say this visit hopes to "deepen our special relationship" with Washington.

The president will also attend a black-tie dinner with business leaders and diplomats at Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, which is the birthplace of Winston Churchill.

After that comes a working lunch at Chequers - the prime minister's official country residence now being used for a crucial round of Brexit discussions - for "substantive bilateral talks" covering a "range of foreign policy issues".

The president will spend Thursday night at US Ambassador Robert "Woody" Johnson's London residence but will otherwise steer clear of the city.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan, a Muslim who has been involved in social media exchanges with the U.S. president, said Trump was not welcome in the British capital because of his divisive agenda and would face mass peaceful protests.

But after a lot of backlash from MPs and more than one million people signing a petition against the trip, a date has still not been set for the state visit.

On Friday morning, Theresa May and Donald Trump will visit a defence site, hold talks and a news conference at Chequers, the Prime Minister's official country retreat before heading to Windsor Castle.

The Lord Mayor of London, vocal anti-Trump critic Sadiq Khan, has approved a giant, inflatable float that resembles Donald Trump as a diaper-wearing baby, to fly over London during Trump's visit, according to this Inquisitr report.

The President will arrive into Britain on Thursday next week, and will not attend any events in central London.

"Prime ministers frequently make use of Chequers for meetings with foreign leaders", she said.

"We are a free and open democracy, and we believe in the right to peaceful protest", May's spokeswoman added.

The Jameson in Hammersmith, west London will temporarily re-name their pub "The Trump Arms" to welcome President Trump to the UK.

After he was invited a year ago, more than 1.86 million people signed a petition saying Trump should not be given a state visit because it could embarrass the queen.

The president will not travel to Downing Street to meet the prime minister on arrival in the country and will instead avoid the capital for the majority of his stay.

Mrs. May has publicly admonished Mr. Trump, including his trade agenda, and the two engaged in a Twitter spat a year ago after Mrs. He declined to confirm whether Mr Trump would play golf in Scotland - where he owns two courses - stressing that the weekend would be dominated by preparations for his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday.

Asked whether Mr. Trump would be playing golf in Scotland, Mr. Johnson said the president's schedule was still being planned.
