Americans in London told to keep 'low profile'

LONDON ― The U.S. Embassy in the United Kingdom.

After the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, Trump will head to England, where Prime Minister Theresa May's government is in turmoil over her plans for exiting the European Union.

President Trump will head to London on Friday, where he's expected to face protests at every turn.

An alert posted on the embassy's website Tuesday listed advice for any America who unexpectedly finds themselves caught up in an anti-Trump demonstration.

Tens of thousands of protesters are expected to turn out against Donald Trump when he visits Britain this week but some believe the protests are an embarrassment and that the U.S. president deserves a warm welcome, writes Alex Fraser.

The US embassy in London suggests he's not the only one who should do so: It told US citizens in Britain today (July 10) to "keep a low profile" for the duration of his trip-and to be aware of their surroundings.

While he is in England, he will hold talks with Prime Minister Theresa May at her 16th century home, meet with Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle as well as attend a black-tie dinner at the former home of Winston Churchill.

For people more excited to see the blimp than the man, here's where to spot the 'Trump Baby', and when.

In its alert the embassy said: "The majority of the demonstrations will be focused in central London on July 13, with other events planned for July 12 and 14".

The US prez will fly into Stansted Airport, east of London on Thursday evening.

Although protests against United States policies aren't a new thing, those planned during Trump's visit are also targeted toward him personally.

Trump is expected to arrive after a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Belgium and will meet with Prime Minister Theresa May, meet Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle, and will attend a black-tie dinner at the home of former World War Two leader Winston Churchill.

Mt Trump refused to endorse Ms May as prime minister and heaped praise on his "friend" Boris Johnson a day after he quit as foreign secretary. "I've always liked him", he said.
