But it's unlikely the Trumps even saw them.

Instead, the couple arrived via helicopter and were driven by presidential limousine onto the property, where they were welcomed by May and her husband Philip.

Trump's visit marked his first to the UK since becoming US President. 

The protesters were booing at numerous official vehicles carrying dignitaries as they arrived at the palace. 

Banners and placards held by the protesters accused Trump of racism and sexism.

The peaceful demonstration was heavily policed.
