Donald Trump has a busy few days ahead of him as he arrives for his first visit to the UK as president.

Here is a look at his itinerary.

Thursday:

– Mr Trump will arrive into Stansted airport on Thursday at around lunchtime, fresh from the Nato summit in Brussels.

– Mr Trump and First Lady Melania will have a meet and greet at the US Ambassador’s residence in London’s Regent’s Park.

Mr Trump cancelled a planned visit to open the newly-relocated US Embassy at the beginning of the year, saying it was a “bad deal” to move from Grosvenor Square in the prestigious Mayfair district of central London to what he described as an “off location” at Nine Elms, south of the Thames.

– Mr Trump and his wife will spend Thursday night at the ambassador’s residence, Winfield House.

Friday:

– Mr Trump will meet again with Mrs May for a visit to a defence site. Air restrictions have been put in place above the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.

– The pair will then travel to Chequers, the Prime Minister’s country residence, for what is being billed as “substantive bilateral talks on a range of foreign policy issues” during a working lunch.
