Trump faces London ban: US President is 'set to meet the Queen' at Balmoral or Windsor on his flying 24-hour visit to Britain on July 13... but will avoid the capital over fears of violent protests

Donald Trump could meet Theresa May and the Queen outside London to stop mass protests overshadowing his first visit as President.

Officials are looking at whether to stage some or all of the July 13 trip away from the capital amid fears of violent demonstrations.

Mr Trump will hold talks with Mrs May, in a boost for the special relationship, officials confirmed yesterday.

But his opponents immediately announced plans to take to the streets in protest, with tens of thousands pledging to attend events.

As a result the US President could be kept out of London. Instead, he may meet the Queen or other royals in either Scotland or Windsor – although it will not be a state visit.
