Queen Elizabeth II will host a state banquet at Buckingham Palace later.

The Queen has told a state banquet that shared values will continue to unite the UK and the US, on a day that began with the US President tweeting abuse at London's Mayor.

Trump and Her Majesty will then deliver toasts on Monday at a state banquet at the Palace.

At Buckingham Palace, Melania - in an elegant, white below-the-knee Dolce & Gabbana dress with navy blue collar and belt and a custom hat by Herve Pierre - stood alongside the queen and Charles's wife, Camilla, while Charles and the president inspected the guard.

"Mayor Khan also authorized, again, the flying of a giant orange Trump baby blimp over the Houses of Parliament during the visit, specifically created to mock and humiliate the President".

The one gifted by Mr and Mrs Obama in particular was seen as subtle snub to Mr Trump at the time.

Trump, in return, called him a "stone cold loser" who had done a "terrible job" as London mayor.

Royal watchers are used to seeing members of the Royal Family and other dignitaries bow and curtsy to the Queen.

Following a 2017 terrorist attack in London that left seven dead, Trump lashed out at Khan, quoting the mayor out of context, suggesting he wasn't alarmed by the killings, which wasn't true.

It wraps up the first day of his three-day visit to the UK. 'Trump Baby' Balloon Lifts Off in British Parliament as Crowds Gather to Protest the US President's Visit to Britain.

New Border Apprehension Numbers Are In and They're Out of Control...Again
And at least six minors have died while they were in US custody or shortly after being released within the past year. Of those, almost 133,000 crossed the US-Mexico border illegally, including over 11,000 unaccompanied children.

While Trump lashed out at Sadiq Khan after the mayor made disparaging comments about the president, he praised several British politicians, including former London mayor and prime minister hopeful Boris Johnson, putting Johnson forward as a potential replacement for Theresa May, who is set to step down as Conservative leader on Friday.

"Kahn reminds me very much of our very dumb and incompetent Mayor of NYC, de Blasio, who has also done a bad job - only half his height", Trump continued in another tweet, misspelling the mayor's name.

On Tuesday Trump is scheduled to meet with prime minister Theresa May, at which he is expected to apply further pressure to the United Kingdom to ban Huawei from the country's next-generation networks.

It appeared as part of an interview with Stop Trump Coalition organizer Anna Vickerstaff on Victoria Derbyshire's show.

Later Trump travelled to Buckingham Palace, where he was greeted by Prince Charles before later being introduced to the Queen.

"I will welcome the president of the United States here", Morgan said on Monday's Good Morning Britain.

Khan said Britain will one day look back on the visit with "profound regret", and said Trump is "one of the most egregious examples of a growing global threat".

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt hit out at Mr Khan for showing "great discourtesy" to the president and accused Labour of "virtue-signalling of the worst kind" over the visit.

"I think it's on the rocks in many respects", Singh says.
