    It is understood First Lady Mrs Trump will play an active role in the visit, meeting children's charities in the UK on her own, but the couple flew into Stansted together and then on to Regent's Park (right)

    The president was delayed for almost an hour when the Nato summit in Brussels he had been attending overran because he demanded member states increase their contributions faster than originally planned

    His entourage also includes a giant convoy of cars including his bomb-proof vehicle 'The Beast', which is also bomb and chemical weapon-proof, which was also guarded by Britain's top armed counter-terrorism unit, CTSFO
