US President Donald Trump was first invited to the United Kingdom for an official state visit in 2017 after his triumph in the 2016 presidential election. However, he paid a visit to Britain only as part of a less ceremonial working visit last year.

Donald Trump accompanied by his wife Melania arrived at London's Stansted Airport on Monday morning. On the first day, his schedule includes meeting Queen Elizabeth II, visiting Westminster Abbey and attending a dinner hosted in Buckingham Palace. 

Prior to Trump, only two other US presidents had the honour of a state visit hosted by her majesty the Queen. President George W. Bush had similar visit in 2003, and President Barack Obama was received by the Queen in 2011.
