This afternoon he will have tea with Prince Charles and Camilla before a reception for NATO leaders at Buckingham Palace and a reception at Downing Street.

The Queen, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall will formally greet NATO leaders at the reception, which marks 70 years of the alliance.


Charles and the Monarch will then join the politicians for a group photograph. Prince Andrew, however, will not be attending after stepping down from public duties after his disastrous News night interview about his association with convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson in the meanwhile is keeping his distance, amid concern that the US President will says something controversial and hurt the PM’s campaign. Johnson has reportedly warned Mr Trump not to get involved with the election while he is here, after he previously suggested that Boris and Nigel Farage join forces.


Jeremy Corbyn is, on the other hand, maximising on the US President’s arrival blaming Britain’s close relationship with the US for the London Bridge terror attacks as well as demand Trump guarantee the US will not try to push NHS medicine prices up through a post-Brexit trade deal.

Donald Trump however, despite saying he had ‘no thoughts’ on the UK election, he took the opportunity to lavish praise on Boris Johnson for doing a ‘great job’ and made clear he had always supported Brexit.

And in reference to Corbyn’s call regarding the NHS, Mr Trump, speaking during his attendance at the NATO summit in London, was stated to say that the US ‘wouldn’t touch the NHS’ even if it was offered on a ‘silver platter’.
