Britain´s Queen Elizabeth II (R), US President Donald Trump (C) and US First Lady Melania Trump (L) stand on the dias in the Quadrangle as Coldstream Guards march past during a welcome ceremony at Windsor Castle in Windsor, west of London, on July 13, 2018 on the second day of Trump´s United Kingdom visit.

The first lady -- who Trump said is a "big fan" of the Queen in an interview with the Sun - wore a pale pink skirt suit with a thin black belt for the special occasion.

She added: "Central London will be very busy and congested (on Friday) based on figures the organisers have shared with us, there will be a lot of people coming to protest, which is their right and this principle remains at the heart of our policing operation". I haven't been there in a long time.

Prior to the start of the president's official visit, Khan took the controversial decision to allow a 20-foot inflatable blimp depicting Trump to be flown above Parliament Square, saying to have done so would have been inhibitive to freedom of speech.

Once top-10, qualifier Gulbis tops No. 4 Zverev at Wimbledon
Nishikori played some of his best tennis in the first week of Wimbledon and has deservedly won through to the round of 16. Gulbis is now ranked 138th and he is the first qualifier in the last 16 at Wimbledon since Brian Baker in 2012.

He wrote on Twitter that although Londoners admire the USA, they "find his policies and actions the polar opposite of our city's values of inclusion, diversity, and tolerance". "We really have a very good relationship". "I mean, the list goes on", he said. More than 64,000 people have signed up to demonstrate in London against Trump's visit while other protests are expected around the country.

Ms May made a direct pitch for a trade deal with Washington, praising the friendship between the two allies, glossing over Mr Trump's previous remarks that Britain was a "hot spot" in turmoil over Brexit. Trump said Khan has done a "terrible job" standing up to terrorists. "I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn't agree, she didn't listen to me".

In a bombshell interview, which was published in The Sun tabloid newspaper on Friday, Trump said: "I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism".

"I'm afraid it is absolutely in Donald Trump's playbook. He is thankful for the wonderful welcome from the prime minister here in the U.K".

Pound drops sharply on comments from Trump that May's Brexit plans will "probably kill" any US-UK trade deal.
