The US President's memory lapse regarding a gift he'd presented wasn't the first, as in December his eldest son Donald Trump Jr. confessed that his father was known to be something of a "regifter".

Melania wore a bespoke Dolce and Gabbana white dress with a navy blue belt for a pop of colour.

"Melania Trump's outfit at Buckingham Palace right now is a lovely homage to Princess Diana".

The Queen has been hosting President Donald Trump on the first day of his state visit, and carefully picked out a gift for the USA leader, but the president was caught out when he failed to recognise a gift he gave the monarch past year. The couple is expected to have tea with Prince Charles and Camilla at Clarence House this afternoon as well as take a tour of Westminster Abbey with Prince Andrew.

The First Lady referenced her destination when she departed Washington in a Gucci dress that featured images of London landmarks Big Ben, Tower Bridge and a double-decker bus.

Melania Trump is being mocked for wearing a cabin crew inspired look as she landed in the United Kingdom for the Trump family's offical state visit.

Others compared the First Lady to Audrey Hepburn's character in My Fair Lady - Eliza Doolittle.

Trump will fly to Ireland on Wednesday where he'll met Leo Varadkar. The first day ended with a banquet at Buckingham Palace where he was joined by his four adult children.

During the palace welcome ceremony, Trump and Prince Charles inspected the Guard of Honor formed by the Grenadier Guards wearing their traditional bearskin hats.

She is visiting the country as part of a three-day long state visit alongside her husband, President Donald Trump.

One Twitter user remarked: "What's with Melania's outfit".

She also gave Mr Trump a three-piece Duofold pen set - a fountain pen, rollerball pen and ball point pen with EIIR cypher - using the obsidian design, exclusively made for the Queen.
