While the protests are taking place in the British capital, Trump will meet the queen at Windsor Castle where he will be welcomed with a guard of honour before having tea with the 92-year-old monarch. She addressed Conservative MPs for an hour on Monday and issued a warning that divided parties lose elections.

"It is as though we are sending our vanguard into battle with the white flags fluttering above them", Johnson wrote in a letter that underscored his credentials as a champion of full-speed Brexit.

But as Mrs May set about trying to steady the ship, a senior Cabinet minister told the Express & Star there was "absolutely no appetite" in the Tory ranks for another leadership battle.

May's premiership has been left hanging by a thread following the dual resignations of Brexit minister David Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson from her Cabinet.

He went on to say Labour is still open to another national vote on Brexit. Paddy Power already see the wolves circling around May, and have been quick with their specials: "Brexit chief David Davis's resignation last night has ramped up Conservative in-fighting, as a revolt seems increasingly likely".

Hunt had been health secretary, and is a leading government backer of a compromise "soft Brexit". "If we do that and we show a team effort, then this country will go onto bigger, better things".

"That's up to the people", he said, adding: "I get along with her very well".

Attorney General Jeremy Wright was appointed to replace Hancock as the culture secretary, with Geoffrey Cox becoming the new attorney general.

Seven MPs including Boris Johnson and David Davis have quit their posts, condemning the Chequers plan for proposing too close a relationship with the European Union after Brexit.

British newspaper The Guardian reports the Ambassador's comments when he said: "We'll make everything possible if the president wants to do something..."

Other ministers described the meeting as "very good".

And the former adviser to Mr Davis, Stewart Jackson, claimed there was a "plan" to curtail the role of the Brexit department and that Downing Street had blocked his reappointment under new Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab. Three junior ministers also quit their posts.

In a statement on Twitter, 10 Downing Street said: "The Queen has been pleased to approve the appointment of Kit Malthouse as minister of state for housing at MHCLG".

Writing in The Sun, arch-Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg denounced the Chequers deal as "a dud" which "will not deliver Brexit".

Could British Prime Minister Theresa May face a challenge to her leadership of the Conservative Party.

Speaking at The Independent's Indy Brexit Debate in London, Ms Miller suggested the 2016 Brexit referendum was too complex a question to be voted on.

Speaking at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, Prime Minister May insisted that her Chequers deal delivered on the "red lines" that she set out in her Lancaster House speech a year ago.

"The government now has a song to sing", he said.

Boris Johnson resigned from his position on Monday.

Asked what he would do if the Brexit plan ended up limiting Britain's ability to conduct trade deals with non-EU countries, Fox said: "I don't believe it does".
