Mrs May and her husband Philip greeted Mr Trump and wife Melania at the birthplace of Winston Churchill, of whom Mr Trump is a big fan. 

The lavish welcome was marred by hundreds of who have cropped up at the US ambassador’s residence where Mr Trump is staying as well as near Blenheim place. 

About 150 guests will attend tonight’s dinner with the leaders, with cabinet ministers including the newly-appointed Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt and Chancellor Philip Hammond in attendance. 

During the dinner, Mrs May said: “Mr President, Sir Winston Churchill once said that ‘to have the United States at our side was, to me, the greatest joy’.

“The spirit of friendship and co-operation between our countries, our leaders and our people, that most special of relationships, has a long and proud history.

“Now, for the benefit of all our people, let us work together to build a more prosperous future.”

What is the patch on Mrs May’s arm?

Mrs May arrived wearing a sleeveless floor-length crimson dress with a slit up the back, paired with red heels – a welcome change from power suits and leopard print shoes.

Turns out the patch on her arm is a diabetes monitoring patch. 

It’s a small white circular patch which monitors blood sugar levels and lets her know when she needs to inject insulin.

She said last year: “I am a type one diabetic. That means when I eat, I have to inject insulin, which I do. 

“I will be injecting myself four or five times a day… You just get into a routine. 

“You depend on that insulin and you just build that routine into your daily life.” 

“The crucial thing to me is being a diabetic doesn’t stop you from doing anything.”

The patch is an update on the old finger-prick blood tests, and involves a tiny needle under the skin which tracks blood sugar levels and sends the results to a phone or smartwatch.

Tonight, the patch will monitor her blood sugar while she dines on a traditional British dinner of  Scottish salmon, Hereford beef fillet and strawberries with clotted cream ice-cream.

Diabetes monitoring patches are available on prescription via the NHS.
