Trump praises extraordinary US-UK alliance on state visit

The incident took place near Parliament Square at around 5pm. A pro-Trump supporter was then pictured being led away from the crowd by police officers. A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman said: “As of 5pm on Tuesday, 4 June, one female has been arrested for being in possession of a pointed/bladed article.”

A 20ft Trump baby blimp, took to the skies after permission was granted by the Greater London Authority.

The 170-person do took six months to plan, with the menu having been kept secret in the build up to the event. It takes a team of three officials eight weeks to unpack George IVs Grand Service — the plates and some 2,000 pieces of cutlery used for these occasions. Each place setting is exactly 45 centimetres from the next and every chair is positioned an equal distance from the table. The room itself — which includes one massive horseshoe-shaped table — takes between three and five days to set. Around the table, 19 serving stations are each occupied by a page, footman, under butler, and wine butler.

A team of organisers wearing red jumpsuits and hats marked “Trump Babysitters” launched an inflatable of the nappy-clad president clutching a mobile phone to cheers from dozens of onlookers at Parliament Square.

To accompany last nights menu, The Donald was served a senior selection of fine wines, including white Burgundy and some big-deal Claret, one of which was a Lafite Rosthchilde 1990 which, according to Wine Searcher, has an average retail price of £9,360, per bottle. This is England, though, so the Royal sommelier threw in a couple of English bins, a Windsor Great Park sparkling white to kick things off and non-vintage sparkling rosé from Hambledon in Hampshire to pair with the sable.

The group estimated tens of thousands of protesters turned out for the largely peaceful demonstrations.

It is significantly fewer than an estimated 250,000 who gathered when Mr Trump visited the UK on July 13 last year.

The highlight of a state visit is appropriately the state banquet with the Queen, — famously a brisk eater — various royal dignitaries, and politicians which took place at Buckingham Palace last night. Typically, a menu of four courses is served at a state banquet: fish, meat, pudding, and dessert — which, distinct from pudding, is traditionally some fruit.

A 16ft talking robot of the President sitting on a gold toilet was also on display elsewhere in the Capital.

Where last nights event was white tie (and cropped jacket), tonight will be a black tie affair (and therefore marginally less formal). Other differences include the Queens absence; the most senior guests of honour will be Prince Charles — a modern prince who prefers olive oil instead of butter with his bread — and Camilla Parker-Bowles.

The figure repeated the phrases “no collusion”, “you are fake news” and “I’m a very stable genius”

Scotland Yard confirmed more than 3,182 officers deployed on day two of Mr Trump’s visit to the UK.

Scotland Yard’s Deputy Commissioner Sir Steve House told the London Assembly Police and Crime Committee on Tuesday the policing plan has so far worked “effectively”.

The main course was new season (spring) Windsor (Royals own) lamb with herb stuffing, spring vegetables — including carrots with tarragon and Pommes Elizabeth (the Queens potatoes?) — and a port sauce.

He said the force is not in a position to estimate how much the operation will cost but added the US President’s last visit to the capital cost the Met about £2.9 million.

Pudding was a strawberry sable with lemon verbena cream — a shortbread-like sweet stack. A selection of fresh fruit was served before coffee and petit fours.
