Here’s what we can expect from Donald Trump’s UK tour

Last year saw Donald Trump’s first official visit of the United Kingdom, announcing before he left, ‘I think they like me over there’.

In response, the UK came out in force to say otherwise, holding mass protests in the streets, resulting in the president actually avoiding the English capital and staying at Windsor and Chequers for his official engagements instead.

This week marks his second UK tour, with the President of the United States flying over to Blighty with First Lady Melania, and four of his children, Donald Jr., Eric, Ivanka and Tiffany.

The official tour has been making headline news around the royals, from Prince Charles who previously got out of meeting Trump having to invite him to tea, and Meghan Markle (still on maternity leave) managing to skip the whole affair.


But what can we expect from Donald Trump’s UK tour?

For the three day visit, the Trumps will reportedly be guests of the Queen, but they will also be hosted my numerous high profile people during their stay.

Prince Charles and Camilla will be hosting them for an afternoon tea at Clarence House, Prince Harry will be sitting down with them for a private lunch, Theresa May will be joining Trump for breakfast, and of course there’s the grand state banquet in the Buckingham Palace ballroom - something that most UK party leaders have declined to attend.

The Trumps will be staying in the UK for three days, moving on to the Republic of Ireland for a further three days where they are set to stay at one of his golf resorts.
