The CEO of an international charity has protested outside Buckingham Palace against the visit of US president Donald Trump.

Shakira Rahman was recently appointed as 'kid boss' of Penny Appeal and wanted to make her voice heard over the controversial visit.

The US President and the First Lady were greeted by Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt and US ambassador to the UK Woody Johnson at Stansted Airport this morning for their three-day trip.

The Trumps will be heading to Buckingham Palace for a reception with the Queen, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.
