Where to score a selfie with Trump Baby in London

In anticipation of the massive protests planned for President Donald Trump's visit to the United Kingdom on Thursday, the U.S. Embassy has warned Americans to "keep a low profile" in the English capital.

It's just been announced: "Donald Trump is coming to Britain on a state visit later this year", reads a Facebook event description for a protest planned July 13-14 that has about 60,000 saying they will attend.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has given permission for a giant inflatable baby blimp that looks like Trump to fly over the Houses of Parliament during the president's visit.

More than 50,000 people have signed up to demonstrate in London on Friday against his visit although a counter-gathering to welcome him is also planned.

The embassy listed a few "actions to take", including: being aware of surroundings, keeping a low profile, monitoring local media and exercising caution "if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent".

Trump is set to land in London on Thursday July 12 and stay at the U.S. Ambassador's residence in Regent's Park before dinner at Blenheim Palace.

On Friday he will visit PM Theresa May at Chequers, set to be followed by a meeting with Her Majesty The Queen at Windsor Castle.

While no plans for Trump to enjoy a round of golf have been confirmed, a protest will be held outside the president's Balmedie course in Aberdeenshire on Saturday, and it is expected there could be demonstrations around his Turnberry resort too.

US President Donald Trump is set to land in London on Thursday for a three-day visit to the UK.

'Several of the events are expected to attract large crowds and there will be road closures in connection with those events'.

Relations between Britain and Russia are at a post-Cold War low since May blamed the Kremlin for the poisoning of former Russian agent Sergei Skripal with a Soviet-era military nerve agent in March.
