However, while Trump and May exchanged warm words, tens of thousands of protesters marched against the US president through Central London, bringing much of the British capital to a standstill.

With Mr Trump set to travel to Scotland on Friday evening after meeting the Queen at Windsor Castle, a rally is planned for Glasgow's George Square.

Trump spoke of his admiration for the Queen in his interview with the Sun on Thursday, in which he called her a "tremendous woman". I think he's got what it takes, Trump told the Sun. You don't see, like, anything embarrassing. "Mary Jo Jacobi, a former aide to President Ronald Reagan, told CNBC's "Squawk Box Europe", that "[Trump] has already won, he is meeting with the queen and his lifelong wish has been meeting with the Her Majesty so from his personal perspective it is a win already".

While a giant baby Donald Trump blimp flew across the London skies to protest his visit, (yes, that happened), Queen Elizabeth II capped off a busy week of royal activities by hosting the us president and first lady Melania Trump for Friday tea at Windsor Castle.

The president walked alongside the Queen as they inspected the front rank of the Royal Guard.

As part of his ongoing working visit to the UK, Trump and his wife, first lady Melania Trump, will join the monarch for tea.

It is understood the taking of tea at Windsor Castle will be a private affair between the British monarch and the President of the United States, with no other political personalities present.

Though he retracted these comments today and showered praise on Mrs May and the "great job" she was doing with negotiations.

London's first Muslim mayor says Friday that many major cities, including Paris, Brussels and Berlin, have suffered terrorism attacks but that Trump has chosen to only criticize him. "She is just an incredible woman".

A January 2017 report in The Sunday Times newspaper said Trump and Charles would not meet during his visit to Britain due to their strongly divergent views on climate change.

In his book "The Art of the Comeback" Trump even said he wished that he was able to "court" Princess Diana, who died in a auto crash in 1997.
