Anti-Trump protesters trade insults with the President's fans outside Buckingham Palace: Hundreds start to gather ahead of demonstration during lavish state dinner (26 Pics)

Police had to separate protesters for and against Donald Trump in London today after they started shouting and pointing fingers at each other outside Buckingham Palace.
Emotions ran high in London as the US President began his state visit amid a wave of protests expected over the next three days as he meets members of the Royal Family and Theresa May in her final days as Prime Minister.
Hundreds of thousands of protesters could join demonstrations this week that will see them fly an offensive 20ft blimp depicting the President as an angry baby and unveil a 16ft talking robot of Mr Trump sitting on a gold toilet.

Demonstrations began from 5.30pm today and have been backed by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and Sadiq Khan, before up to 250,000 people are expected to take part in a march tomorrow. 
Protests are also underway in Leeds, Newcastle, Manchester and Birmingham, where protesters are marching with placards denouncing the president.

In one volatile exchange caught on camera today in the capital, protesters argued over the infamous video of Mr Trump from 2005 when he used the phrase 'grab them by the p***y' in relation to meeting women.
A female Trump supporter pointed out the video was more than a decade old and claimed 'real men talk about women that way' while a male supporter said he would say the same thing – which riled those on the other side.

An anti-Trump protester said: 'I'm proud to say I'd never ever speak about women like that. You should be ashamed of yourself.' But the Trump fan replied: 'I'm a working class cockney, and you lot are middle class Left-wing elitist.' 
But the anti-Trump protester said: 'There are plenty of intelligent, sensitive working class people who aren't ignorant, aren't racist, aren't sexist and aren't flaming morons - it just so happens you are all of those things.' 
Earlier today, Neil Clark, 39, from Woolwich in South East London, joined a growing crowd outside Buckingham Palace awaiting the arrival of the President and described Mr Trump as 'amazing'.

He said he was a 'massive fan', adding: 'Just his character, the energy he has, the passion he has. He's an amazing guy.' Mr Clark described the prospect of protests against Mr Trump as 'quite disrespectful' and 'quite shameful'. 
He also described Mr Trump's tweets about London Mayor Sadiq Khan as 'justified'. Mr Trump launched a Twitter tirade at Mr Khan this morning, branding him a 'stone cold loser' - which Mr Khan called a 'childish insult'. 
Members of The King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery made their way past the front of Buckingham Palace and into Green Park ahead of firing Royal Salutes later. A military band played music on the palace forecourt.
Police officers could be seen standing at three different points on the roof at the front of the palace. The crowd outside grew and were entertained by the band, with tunes including the themes to both Rocky and Fame.
The US President and the First Lady Melania Trump were greeted by Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt and US ambassador to the UK Woody Johnson at Stansted Airport this morning as they began their three-day trip.

The Trumps then headed to Winfield House, the ambassador's residence in the capital. Mr Trump arrived having already created political turbulence with comments on the Tory leadership race, Brexit and the Duchess of Sussex.
Mr Trump arrived on Air Force One at Stansted Airport, waving as he walked down the steps from the front of the jet, accompanied by the First Lady who wore a blue pencil skirt and blazer, dark sunglasses and heels.
An array of US military helicopters arrived around an hour ahead of the President's white and blue plane, which bears the US flag on the tail fin and the words United States of America.
There was a visible armed police presence around the airport and police vehicles parked alongside the runway.
Other passengers on Air Force One, including members of the media, disembarked from the rear of the plane while 20 troops from the RAF Regiment formed a guard of honour for Mr Trump.
Mr Trump and the First Lady made the short walk to helicopter Marine One which took them to central London. A military officer saluted Marine One as it taxied off, followed by a second US helicopter and a UK police helicopter.
