DONALD Trump will arrive in Britain for a controversial three-day state visit on Monday June 3, Buckingham Palace has announced.

However, no more details have been made public with the palace saying they will be released “in due course”.

Normally, state visits are planned meticulously months in advance but the uncertainties surrounding Brexit, including whether or not Theresa May will still be in Downing St when the US President arrives, mean that the details are being hastily put together.

Doubt has been cast over whether or not Mr Trump will address both Houses of Parliament as his previous heads of state have.

Security is expected to be very high for the June 3-5 state visit.

Even before the official visit was formally confirmed, campaigners were already pledging to stage mass protests at the impending arrival of the 45th US President.

The organisation Stand Up To Trump said campaigners had pledged to mobilise huge numbers in response to the prospect of a state visit.

Member Sabby Dhalu claimed the US leader was "the world's number one racist, warmonger and misogynist".

"A formal state visit to Britain in June must be met with widespread opposition," she declared, adding: "All those that value peace and hope for a better world for the many must take to the streets and say clearly that Donald Trump is not welcome here."

Last summer, Mr Trump made a two-day working visit to the UK with his wife Melania when he avoided London due to demonstrations.

Thousands of people protested not only in London and but also in Edinburgh; a six-metre inflatable depicting the 72-year-old head of state as a baby was flown in the UK capital.

Theresa May extended the offer to Mr Trump early in his presidency when she met the US leader for the first time in the White House in January 2017.

The state visit was expected that year but no date was set. The US leader's 2018 trip to the UK had many of the trappings of a state visit, including taking tea with the Queen at Windsor Castle.

Mr Trump will again be hosted by Her Majesty at either Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle and the visit is likely to follow the traditional format of an official open-air welcome, featuring prestigious British regiments, lunch with the Queen and a state banquet.

Her Majesty has hosted two previous state visits from US Presidents; George W Bush in November 2003 and Barack Obama in May 2011.

State visits normally last three days and once the ceremonial elements with the Queen have been completed, visiting heads of state follow an itinerary that reflects their own interests and political aims.

In Mr Trump’s case, this could mean another visit to Scotland and one of his family business’s golf courses. At the end of last year’s visit, the US President visited Turnberry on the Ayrshire coast.

While Mr Trump was at Turnberry, police estimated some 9,000 protesters walked from Holyrood to the Meadows for a "carnival of resistance”. It featured the giant Trump Baby balloon, which was banned from both the Scottish Parliament precincts and the Ayrshire golf course.

Around the time of the state visit, Mr Trump is due to travel to Europe and attend commemorations marking the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings on June 6.
