The US Embassy in London has issued a warning to Americans in Britain to keep a "low profile" during Donald Trump's visit.

Talks with Prime Minister Theresa May, a meeting with Queen Elizabeth II and a trip to Scotland all made Trump's schedule for his three-day United Kingdom visit beginning Friday.

Mr Trump will instead be ensconced at Windsor Castle, west of London on Friday when a blimp tethered next to the Houses of Parliament.

But trip planners may go out of their way to shield Trump from viewing another aspect of the greeting: an oversized balloon depicting the president as an angry baby in a diaper that will be flown from London's Parliament Square during what are expected to be massive gatherings of protesters opposed to Trump's presence.

Mr Trump and his wife Melania are expected to stay in London only for a single overnight stay at the USA embassy.

Trump and his wife, First Lady Melania, will land at London's Stanstead airport after attending a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

That business-friendly Brexit proposal was agreed by her cabinet only last Friday after two years of wrangling since Britons voted to leave the bloc in a 2016 referendum.

In the busy south London neighborhood of Brixton, Victor Greetham, who runs a jazz bar, said he hasn't been to a demonstration since he protested against the Iraq War in 2003, but he planned to attend one of the protests against Trump's visit.

He said: "The UK loves me, in fact my mother was from the UK, they love me there even if they are not treating us well with trades, but they will".

While she hopes the Trump visit will focus on trade and strengthening security ties, it is likely to be heavy on rhetoric about the transatlantic "special relationship" and short on specifics such as any details of a post-Brexit trade deal.

Trump is doing his best to avoid the mass protests planned for his controversial trip, which will include talks with May, tea with Queen Elizabeth II and a private weekend in Scotland.

"This week we have an opportunity to deepen this unique trading relationship and begin discussions about how we will forge a strengthened, ambitious and future-proof trade partnership". I think they agree with me on immigration'.

A small demonstration is expected to take place near Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire on Thursday, the venue for Trump's black-tie dinner with Prime Minister Theresa May.

The two leaders are also expected to discuss Russia, Brexit and Middle East.
