Will the giant balloon be back?

US President Donald Trump looks set to make a state visit to the United Kingdom in June.


It is believed that the visit will be officially announced on Tuesday.

Reports state that Donald Trump will visit Buckingham Palace, and also go to France to mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings.


Trump and first lady Melania previously visited the UK in July 2018. During the trip, he met with Prime Minister Theresa May at Chequers, and with the Queen at Windsor Castle.

The visit was not without controversy though - tens of thousands of protestors filled the streets in London to voice their dislike of the US President. Two large marches took place, one organised by Women's March London and another by the Stop Trump Coalition.

Memorably, a big inflatable baby Donald Trump in a nappy was flown over the capital.


Protests also took place in Edinburgh and in Turnberry, where Trump owns a golf course.

10,000 police officers were needed to cover Trump's visit in 2018, and estimates from the National Police Chiefs' Council say that the police operation cost nearly £18m.

Donald Trump has yet to visit Ireland, having cancelled a trip here ahead of Armistice Day 2018. It remains to be seen whether he will visit this time around.
