Want to woo the president? Treat him to a military parade. That’s what Queen Elizabeth II plans to do when President Trump and first lady Melania Trump visit her this week.
Buckingham Palace says Trump and the queen will survey her Coldstream Guards and receive a royal salute before the U.S. national anthem is played, then the group will reconvene for tea at Windsor castle.
The visit will follow a black-tie dinner with Prime Minister Theresa May.
May will also treat the U.S. president to a military display of her own.
Trump was famously impressed by France’s military parade last July, leading him to push for his own in Washington D.C. However, critics argue that Trump displaying the U.S.' military may conjure comparisons to Russia or even North Korea.
But for all the planned pomp and circumstance of Trump’s first trip to Britain, huge protests are expected, including the appearance of an inflatable Trump baby.
