Itinerary of U.S. President Trump's visit to Britain

The protest will will see Britons and minority ethnic groups uniting against what have been branded his

Johnson claimed that Trump will be spending a good portion of time in central London since the ambassador's residence will be used as a jumping off point en-route to other destinations, including an audience with the queen at Windsor Castle and a meeting with Theresa May at Chequers Court, the traditional country home for U.K. Prime Ministers.

Instead the president will be whisked off for a tour of some of England's most impressive historic buildings before departing for Scotland for a relaxing weekend, part of which is expected to be spent on the golf course.

The White House and Trump's British hosts are opting to go big on pomp and tradition, and mostly skip the current circumstances - namely, the mass demonstration against the USA president planned for next Friday in central London.

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

Asked whether Chequers had been chosen to avoid planned protests in London, the spokeswoman said this was not the case and the venue was better for "more informal meetings".

Asked whether Trump's schedule was created to keep him away from protests, a Downing Street spokesman said: 'Prime ministers frequently make use of Chequers for meetings with foreign leaders.

Trump's short visit comes off the back of speculation about when he would land on the soil of America's closest ally.

"We need to see that the relationship isn't damaged after these protests", he said. "I think the majority of the British people understand the importance of our alliance".

The president and his wife Melania will then be guests of honour at a dinner for around 100 guests in the spectacular setting of Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire.

The black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace, the country estate where Winston Churchill was born, will nonetheless see considerable ceremony, including the bands of Scots, Irish and Welsh Guards welcoming Trump, and an orchestra serenading diners with "classic British and American hits".

Iran tells Trump: stop tweeting, it's driving up oil prices
Trump's tweet triggered reaction from Iran , a founding member of OPEC, whose oil exports have been targeted by USA sanctions. Inventories at Cushing, Oklahoma, fell 2 million barrels last week, according to a separate forecast compiled by Bloomberg .

U.S. Ambassador to Britain Woody Johnson painted trade as a potential bright spot in the strong "special relationship" between Britain and the United States, which he said Trump meant to strengthen.

It will begin with a military ceremony and bands playing American anthems, while guests will be serenaded with classic British and U.S. hits by the Corps of Army Music's Countess of Wessex's string orchestra.

He will not be visiting Downing Street.

"That's why a group of us have chipped in and raised enough money to have a six-metre high blimp made by a professional inflatables company, to be flown in the skies over Parliament Square during Trump's visit". Then the two leaders will meet again the next day for bilateral talks.

In April 2009, just months after taking office, President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama met the queen at Buckingham Palace.

"The President and first lady will travel to Windsor castle, where he will meet with Her Majesty the Queen".

Mr Trump - who will arrive with wife Melania on Thursday after a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit - will spend a relaxing weekend there to bring the trip to a close.

Number 10 described this as "a private element of the official visit".

The president is only expected to spend one evening in the capital city.
