President Trump is due to land at Stansted Airport at 9am for the start of his three-day visit to the UK. The President will be met with a ceremonial welcome attended by the Queen, Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall in the Buckingham Palace garden. After the welcome, the Duke of Sussex will join the group for a private lunch at the palace. The president was seen with his new hairdo on Sunday during a visit to an evangelical church in Virginia after he had to remove his baseball cap.
Trump visit schedule: What time is Donald Trump due to arrive in London this morning?
He arrived at the church straight from a golf outing to honour a “special day of prayer”.
Social media users reacted with bemusement at the new hair style, one said: “Wow he looks like a real person and not an orange cheat with fly away hair.”
Another said: “With normal hair he at least looks a little less bizarre”.
Hair Stylist Matthew Curtis said to the Gentlemen’s Journal that Trump’s normal hairdo is “probably dyed every 2 to 3 weeks to avoid regrowth”.
He also said: “I’ve never met a hairdresser who would help give him this style. If they did, and I had to name it, I’d call it a back-to-front mullet with a new romantic fringe.”
