President Trump will arrive in the UK on Thursday from a NATO summit in Brussels, according to the itinerary released by Downing Street.
This is what his visit looks like for the next two days:
- The President and first lady Melania Trump will attend a black-tie dinner hosted by Prime Minister Theresa May at Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Winston Churchill.
- The event will begin with a military parade featuring the bands of the Scots, Irish and Welsh Guards in the spectacular Great Court. The music will have an American flavor, with the “Liberty Fanfare” and the “National Emblem” chosen alongside “Amazing Grace.”
- The Trumps will spend the night at the US ambassador’s residence, Winfield House, by Regent’s Park in London.
- Trump and May will visit a defense site “to witness a demonstration of the UK’s cutting-edge military capabilities and integrated UK-US military training,” according to a spokeswoman for May.
- They will then travel to Chequers, the Prime Minister’s official country retreat, for bilateral talks on foreign policy, to be followed by a news conference.
- Trump and the first lady will then go on to Windsor Castle to meet the Queen.
- Later that evening, the Trumps will travel to Scotland, where the President owns two golf properties, Trump Turnberry and Trump Aberdeen. It’s not yet been confirmed whether the President will play golf while there for the weekend.
